So my long time hope of combining the photography business and the doula business is finally becoming a reality! I'm stoked. But I need a name for the business as a whole. I'll still be Nicole Simon Photography and Nature's Way Labor & Birth Support for a while, until the new name is nice and set in :) I am so bad at this though. Yes I consider myself pretty creative in a lot of areas but for some reason choosing names isn't one of my strong suits. I've talked to Jeff about it and we have some ideas but nothing is really hitting home with me. I'm hoping this is where you guys come in! I'm going to have a 'Name my Business' contest. The winner (the name I end up choosing for my business) gets a free portrait session and two free digital images, a $325 value! Some of our ideas include names, words or phrases that include our children or their names (Cooper Wyatt and Cade Phoenix), words or phrases that describe where we live (RVA, near the river, rocks, canopy, sunshine, etc.), words that describe me (natural, beach, sea, sun, sand, etc.)... But obviously these thoughts haven't gotten us anywhere so there's really no limit as to what I'm looking for. Any and all ideas will be considered!
To submit an idea you can post a comment on this post, send me a tweet @natureswaydoula or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't' forget to like this post here by clicking the Facebook thumbs up and share with your friends. Contest starts today and closes Wednesday March 14th at midnight. The winner will be contacted within a few days and the new name announced shortly after that.
In the meantime here are some crazy adorable pictures of my Cade that I took this week. He's on the go, big time, so I'm literally chasing him around with the camera now and hoping to get some shots that aren't too blurred! Look how happy he is to be in the pack-n-play... I mean I'll take it! Just love this boy!
