In the mean time..

Hello friends,

I want to welcome you to a new space of mine. This year I began the adventure of rebranding my work into take heart photo. While I love my given name... I felt compelled to re-imagine my brand as a photographer in an expressive way that might characterize what I want to do in this trade.  

The wellspring for my new name was the bible passage John 16:33 

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

The reason I do what I do always circles back to a God given desire to cheer, strengthen, and comfort those around me. I wish for the work I do through take heart photo  to be a source of joy and a reminder to my subjects of all the good in their world. 

The site is a work in progress but to me, functioning under construction is better than disappearing until my brand is sleek and shiny.

Starting with my new logo prototype:

And its just that - a prototype. My plans are to hand my logo design off to a friend with 1000% more graphic design/branding brains than I. Clearly I designed this one myself, the way I fumbled my way through making it would be a laugh to anyone ( not me) with a basic knowledge of Illustrator. Until I get my (overdue) homework done this will have to do! 

I'd be much obliged if you would take a look around my newborn site and thank you for bearing with me on the adventure, all criticism is welcome :)
