When I decided to put together a website for my photography, I needed a logo. I can barely draw a stickman to make it look like a person, so anything that requires drawing needed to be outsourced.
I found a lady on Etsy who is a photographer and a graphic designer, and commissioned her to do the work for me. After a lot of discussions back and forth, I picked this design she came up with–three eggs in a nest. So what’s up with the eggs in the nest? I wanted something to reflect what my “brand” is all about–babies, children, and families. I thought the design reflected that, and it was “organic”. My packaging material will be mostly handmade paper, mesh ribbons, kraft bags, etc to also reflect the organic feel to what I want to emphasize. The typography in the logo is fairly clean and simple, as is my website. I want you to see that what matters the most to me is the person I am photographing, not some fancy design or gimmicks.
Years ago, even before I had my kids, I have always enjoyed photographing other people’s kids. There’s just something so real and unpretentious about children. It just gives me such great joy to see a glimpse of their personality reflected in an image. I love that children never look at a picture and say “I look fat in that picture” or “I don’t like my nose in that picture”. They always love seeing themselves in a photo. They are not judgemental of themselves, and they are accepting of others. I guess I love it so much because I wish I can be like them.
Anyway, I’m going off in a tangent. Back to the logo. I love the logo. I hope I live up to what it’s trying to say: Let me photograph your family so I can record its preciousness on an image for you.
