Values to Communicate:
Style, quality, personal service, unique perspective, and an appeal to femininity. Also consider the beauty of light, softness, and warmth. Remember though, the photographer is male.
Logo design should of course communicate key values and appeal most to the target demographic. The logo design should be easily read, and understood to be a photography studio. No stereotypical references to cameras, apertures, etc. should be submitted. Also, the logo should work well as a watermark.
No preference as to specific colors, however the logo should work very well in black on white, or white on black. The color(s) chosen should also work well on a white, or a black field. I would prefer the number of colors be minimal, and graphics simple. Suggestions are welcomed.
