Today Maria of Camomint Photography shares her recent packaging success, "For my packaging I was looking for clean and simple design, just as templates that Design Aglow offers. I always felt a bit sad looking at the packaging photos Design Aglow provided, understanding that once I get a template I will have a headache of where and how to print it. So when Design Aglow offered a Packaging Starter Kit, I knew I had to get one.
This is my first attempt to use Design Aglow packaging. At first I was going to use only a small welcome folder, since it has these nice little compartments on the sides. I put a Thank you note in one of them, and referral cards in another. Prints fit wonderfully in the middle. After I got the folder set up, I've realized, that it perfectly fits into 8"x10" charcoal print box and looks much more worthwhile. I like that the welcome folder has two small pockets, in which a Thank you note and referral cards fit nicely. I really didn't want them to be lost among the prints. I like that the client has to open it, and take some time to see, what's inside, check all the pockets and enjoy getting all the small gifts out. I like the print box, because it's not too thick. It is perfect for prints or a welcome folder wrapped in tissue paper. I like the variety of boxes Design Aglow offers. They are good quality, clean and simple. Various thickness and sizes allow you to choose the perfect option! And since there is logo embossing offered, well, this is my number one packaging choice! It is not so easy to find the perfect packaging. I'm so happy that there is someone out there creating just exactly what I'm wishing for! Thank you!"

I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
