The Dawn of a New Logo

One my confidantes whom I had approached to review my new website pointed out to me that it was strangely devoid of logo branding.  I explained to her that I regarded my original logo just as I did my previous website: tired and due for a rebuild.

Lorraine spurred me onto that job today.  Here is what I have come up with. 

Let me know what you think of it.

Following my full session with Jaclyn last weekend, I did a quick model portfolio style photo shoot with Julie.  Although we had only about 20 minutes, and despite Julie’s having limited experience modelling for the camera, Julie and her distinctive look fuelled some interesting portraits. 

Like Jaclyn’s set that I previously posted, these are preview quality images with no touch ups.

We enjoyed a good model portfolio type studio session with Jacklyn yesterday.  Here are some of my picks from her preview gallery.  These have not been touched up.

Virginia of Beauty on the Go once again provided makeup and light hair styling.

Website Makeover

UPDATE 5-Jan-10: Several of you have taken the time to share with me your thoughts on my overhauled main website.  Thank you!  The reviews so far have been very encouraging.  I have also received some great suggestions.  Anyone watching closely may have already noticed some tweaks to the site, and can look for some more fine tuning today.
