I'm thinking about starting PBing, and getting a business up and running by fall. What do you guys think about my name... Astrid Miller Photography? I was thinking its kinda blah... I also don't like Lauren Miller Photography, I think that's even worse. I think some peoples names sound great as their business name, but I'm not sure mine is one of them. Now I know that the photography is what makes a business good, but good branding can help... can't it? ramble, ramble... The question is.. Do you guys think I should pick a new business name? Maybe something cutsie.. I thought of Ever After photography, but then I googled it, and turns out there are several of those (not so original, am I!).... so not that... but something along those lines I guess?
I like the thought of putting your name as a business name and having a sub title. I also like having a unique name that describes you as a photographer. I guess it is a toss up for me. I am no help... lol.
Are you going to apply for prepro on ILP?

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
I do think Ever After photography is far too common, you don't want confusion happening (I e-mailed the wrong studio once because of 2 studios with the same name ). I think that using your name or your name in combination with a description would be a great idea. Not being very creative here but something like "Lauren's Memories".

I'll be totally honest that I love Astrid Miller Photography! For some reason I thought you'd already picked it as your name and I always remember it.

I also agree that Astrid Miller Photography totally works.
Did I ever tell you that my dad's mom's name was Astrid? I never met her, she died when Dad was 13. But I think of her anyway when I see your watermark.

Wow, thanks so much for the responses. It really helps to see what other ppl think. For some reason I was under the impression that ppl really didn't like Astrid Miller Photography.
Gwen, I didn't know that. I think its a really neat name, although my brother used to tease me when I was little... He called me Lauren *** tread.... Does that even make sense?! What are brothers for I was named after my great Nana, who died a couple years ago. She would have been turning 100 this summer. Crazy.
