Big, heavy, contented sigh...

You are about to have a conversation with my brain. Forgive me, it's very one sided...

I spent the weekend saturated in babies. Not mine, other peoples, but saturated, nonetheless. It's strange, I worked more in the last three days than I have all together since before Christmas!

It was equal parts wonderful and difficult...wonderful, because I love what I do...difficult because it means I'm away from my family...such is life, my family survived, and I'm currently winding down from work, tappity tapping away on my computer while a certain 2 year old snoozes restlessly beside me and her handsome daddy snores away on the other side of her.


So, this photography thing? Yeah...looks like it's really gonna happen!! I'm gonna do it! I'm really, really, really excited about it...but guys, I need a name!! I'm having the hardest time coming up with something professional and catchy.

I feel like "So-and-so Photography" names are a dime a dozen, so I don't really want to go with that...I also don't want a name that "pigeon holes" me into a certain niche...I'd like something whimsical, easy to brand, and unique.

I realize that I'm asking for the moon...HEY! "For the Moon Photography"! Hmmmm...okay, maybe not.

The other day, I had a little nibble of one of the tastiest oranges I've had in a long, long time. So tasty, in fact, that it induced in me, a craving for oranges so strong I almost had to buy a pregnancy test! No "normal" (not that pregnancy isn't "normal") woman craves something that badly! (I'm not, by the way. Pregnant, that is.)

So, I bought some oranges, only after my kids have been exposed to weeks and weeks of clementines, brought them home and devoured them tossed them in a bowl.

Suddenly, I head Hambone exclaim, "WHOA!! Look at these GIANT clementines!!!"

You'd think the kid had never seen oranges before. For the record, he has. names (if you're wondering, "Crooked Halos Photography" is taken...I already checked...)...suggestions anyone?




*tap tap tap* "This thing on?" (Name that blogger...)


  1. Well, you COULD call it 'OVER THE MOON PHOTOGRAPHY' in, you're over the moon to be able to do this! :) You could use little angel (with a crooked halo, of course) jumping over a crescent moon as your logo. :)

  2. Over the Moon Memories
    The Right Click Photography
    Memories Captured
    Hmm gotta think...

  3. Not feeling witty right now...hmmm...

  4. I think Crooked Halos is ok, as long as the person it's "taken" by isn't in your area. Honestly, I just looked, and "Crooked Halo" (singular) is pretty much just a hobbyist. I think it'd still be ok for you to use Crooked Halos Photography, especially if Halos is plural.

  5. What a fun task!!! I have no doubt you will come up with something fun and catchy!
    I remember reading a few books that gave good ideas on how to come up with business names, do a search and read the tips! One tip that stuck with me was to brainstorm words that are associated with your business and see if those words spark any creative names...good luck!

  6. I had a hard time coming up with my Photography Business name, too! Something will come to you!

  7. I guess twisted halo would not sound right. I will think about it.

  8. There are so many catchy names: Captured Memories, Captured Blessings...

    One of my favorites here in my town is Belmore Photography. Her name is Belinda Utmore.

    With my Bags By Jill experience, it would be nice if it started with an A opposed to a Z if possible. (I'm just adding more criteria aren't I?)

  9. That Blogger is Pioneer Woman...Not sure on the business name though. My dad's business is KLA Woodworks, KLA being the first initials of each of his daughters' names. Maybe you can do something like that? Good luck!

  10. Why not "My Little Life Photography?" I think it's cute.

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!

Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
