Welcome to Design Aglow’s new bi-weekly blog series: Coffee Break with Design Aglow Every other Friday we will be sharing a highlight reel of what we talked about over our coffee here at the office. Won’t you grab a macaroon, snuggle up with a kitten and join us in a much-needed work break? You deserve it. 

In case you can’t tell by now, here at Design Aglow we’ve been a little obsessed with donuts as of late. Which is why we had a donut bar at our Open House on Monday, obviously. Portland superstar Blue Star Donuts catered the event, which was a smashing success by the way — over 50 new and old friends came out to see our Portland space and munch on the best donuts we’ve ever tasted (move over Voodoo).

     
    • Have a Design Aglow purchase you’ve been wanting to splurge on? Now’s your chance! For a limited time, we are offering our brand new Hand Lettered Poster Printables for FREE with a $100 purchase! These beauties were crafted specifically for us, so you won’t see anything like them on the market. Transform your prints into Pinterest-worthy treasures (you’re welcome)!
     
    • Speaking of Pinterest, there are only THREE MORE DAYS to enter our Pin to Win contest! It’s so easy to enter — check it out here, and happy pinning!
     
    • We were a little distracted from work this week by this live feed of a newborn horse (need we say more?) from photographer Jodie Otte. Cuteness overload.
     
    • One of the most unique (and inspiring!) Kickstarter campaigns we’ve seen floated through our feeds this week: an Australian woman is attempting to change the way we view our bodies. She has already reached her Kickstarter funding for a proposed documentary but her project is definitely worth taking a gander at!
        Have a wonderful weekend~ xoxo, The Design Aglow Team

    Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

    Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping.

I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
