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).

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

    How To Be A Really, Really Happy Photographer

    The formula is simple.

    clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

    We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

    Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
