New Year, New Look
Today is a very BIG DAY for Oh Snap! Photography. If you'll notice, it's no longer Oh, Snap! Photography. I have decided to re brand to Danielle Brooks Photography. I know, you're probably asking, why the change? I've taken a lot of time to find my identity as a photographer. I was hesitant to use my name at first because I thought it would make me like every other photographer out there. But it doesn't. My name is what makes me unique. There are no other Danielle Brooks Photography companies out there. I thought about my wedding photographers. Why did I like them
so much? I loved their style. Their style was unique to them, and I wanted what they were selling. And what says a
brand better than someone's name? I also decided that using my name was the best way for people to find my work. When people use me as a reference, they aren't going to say, "Oh, Snap! Photography took our photos." They are going to say, "Danielle Brooks took our photos Google her work."
I found a great artist, Kate, to design my logo. She was awesome to work with. We both created mood boards to come up with a concept for the re brand. She worked to get the font, colors and fox just right. I wanted to stick with the teal color. I just love it, but the more I thought about colors, I decided to replace the red with peach, yellow and a dash of grey.
Kate was able to come up with a clean watermark for my work. The simple B is a great use of the main logo to mark my work for the web. As for the for the fox, isn't he cute? I wanted to brand as a family photographer. This doesn't mean I don't shoot weddings, or pets, or other things. It just means that families are my specialty. I felt like the fox was a great element to incorporate into the logo. I haven't come up with a name for the little guy yet, but I am open to any suggestions.
So this is it. Welcome to the new Danielle Brooks Photography website and blog. A lot of man hours were spent on reworking the brand, but I am ecstatic about the new look! I feel that it encompasses my brand as a fresh, family friendly, professional brand. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. Please feel free to leave me some love and let me know what you think about the new logo!
