Okay, so here's the deal. When I went to buy a domain name for my photography business, davisonphotography.com was taken. (BOOOOO...). And I thought about maybe doing a variation like davisonfotography or something, but I didn't want people accidentally going to the other one because it isn't very good.
SO... after much consideration and ridiculously over analyzing everything, I decided on the domain davisonphotos.com. Short, sweet, but still professional sounding.
(I have to admit, I had to give it a while to grow on me. It was Kirby's first suggestion when we found out I couldn't have davisonphotography, but I just didn't feel it was what I wanted to go for. Well, it was. And I'm giving Kirby credit for knowing so.)
Now that I have climbed that mountain of a dilemma, I have another one! For all of you who have visited my photography blog, davisonphoto.blogspot.com, you have seen my current watermark.
I like it.
BUT--Kirby and I both felt that it makes more sense if the domain name is the same as the business name. That would mean I am now DavisonPhotos, as opposed to Davison Photography. Therefore, I would need a new watermark.
So I doodled one up, scanned it in, and extracted it in Photoshop and it's ready to go! And I really like the way it looks!
So what is my problem then? I'll tell you.
A really good friend of ours, John Baxter, is building my website. Just recently he added the design elements and I LOVE it. It's like he read my mind. I love the green, and I love the top bar, how the image blends in to the graphics. If you want to see it, go to davisonphotos.com/index.php. But please recognize it is very much under construction. I still have to send him all the written stuff, and the pictures in the "portfolio" section are not mine. :)
So here is the problem--I LOVE the way that "davison photography" looks at the top of the screen. (And by the way, it will probably end up being "capturing memories one photo at a time" underneath. But that's not important here.) So. Here's the deal. I love my new watermark, and I want the consistency between my domain name and my business name. BUT--I love the way "davison photography" looks!
Comments? Opinions? I'm just curious what y'all think. :)
