Today we received a lovely note from Jamie of Jamie Vinson Photography. She shares, "Design Aglow Albums are excellent - from the ordering to the prompt delivery, to the exceptional quality. The FAQ and templates are also easy to navigate and use.
To promote them, I include information and images of albums in both my Welcome Guide (sent with each inquiry) and also on my website. I stress the importance of walking away from the portrait/wedding experience with tangible, high quality products wherever and whenever I can. I also like to bring albums to my sessions and client meetings, because once they’ve touched them and seen them in person they can really appreciate how beautiful they are, and also how different they are from anything they could obtain themselves.
I use AlbumStomp to design my albums, and Album Prufr to share proofs with clients and solicit feedback and changes. It truly makes album design a breeze. Also, because it’s such a quick process I can easily whip up a sample album once a client has viewed their gallery, send it over via Album Prufr, and that often helps push them over the edge to purchase one once they’ve seen how great they can look.
Overall, Design Aglow Albums are an excellent value and comparable to much higher priced albums that I have seen."

Dear Ashley and Graham circa 2008,
Your business will not live and die by social media. You're going to be tempted to put more time into Facebook and Instagram than you do into in-person relationships because it will feel like that's what everyone else is doing; it will feel like the only way to keep up. Resist that temptation. Resist the urge to jump on the ever changing hamster wheel of social media. When you get on that hamster wheel it will feel like you're running as fast as you can and getting nowhere. And that's exactly where sinking unscheduled, unintentional time into social media will get you: nowhere.
Next to framed art, albums are a favorite, no-brainer product you should be offering every client. Albums are the one product that truly stands the test of time and will be treasured for generations to come. Not long ago, album design went a bit “photographers-gone-wild” with acrylic, metal, and even fur covers. Remember that panoramic ultra-wide album fad?
Luckily the tide has turned back to favoring a classic, luxury presentation.
Netflix. HBO. & Hulu.
That could be about 70% of my off season. The time a friend introduced me to Game of Thrones was the most epic two months of my life (sorry adulthood). BUT, the keyword in that first sentence is “could be”. My biggest love during off season is stepping out of my living room for a travel adventure.
