Storybook Photography

Recently, I've had a couple of people ask me what my photography business would be called if I ever had one. I answered, "I have no idea" and wasn't even really considering a business... but it kind of got me thinking about it. 

A photography business would be a dream, but at this point I still have so much to learn. Thankfully, my sweet friends and family are willing to let me learn and grow as photographer by letting me take family photos for them. Its really a win win for all of us. They get free photos and I get lots of experience. ☺

So I decided this week to start a Facebook page for all the photos I've taken for friends and family... like an online portfolio I guess. I had to come up with a name and thought it would be cool if it could sort of be similar to my blog name. I started playing around with the word story because I feel like photos tell the story of our lives... and thats when I came up with "Storybook Photography". ☺

Once I thought of a name, I needed some sort of a logo. I played around with some fonts and a "storybook feeling" silhouette image I had, and came up with this.

And here are just a few photos with the watermark I made.  I took these photos for my parents this past weekend. ☺

I'm really excited about the start of something that could potentially turn into a fabulous side business and something I can call mine and be proud of. :-)  I love this wonderful hobby and can't wait to learn so much more about it.
