Ideas??...Give 'em to me!

I wanted to find some way to make some money this upcoming holiday season, in efforts to continue our current financial goal. So, Steve and I are going to start a teeny tiny little sure what to call our little venture :)

I've been editing pictures with random programs online the past couple of years and finally agreed to let Steve teach me a thing or two in photoshop. I tell ya, I have no idea why I'm so darned stubborn when it comes to allowing my husband to "teach" me! Maybe it's just because photoshop seemed like such a non-user friendly program compared to the programs I've been using which are virtually idiot proof. Or maybe it's because he's just too knowledgeable about it that I feel overwhelmed when he tries to cram my head full of terms and computer commands and concepts I haven't had to deal with before? Either way, he's been wanting to teach me for some time and until just recently, I'd been putting it off.

I started doing some online tutorials hoping that I would at least have a basic understanding of it before he started his lessons. So far...I think it's gonna be HOT! SOOOOOO many more things you can do in much so that I'd like to slap the past version of myself for being such a stick in the mud and refusing to take my blinders off!

Anyways, I'm certain that there are several families that would LOVE some updated family pictures to use for I thought what better time than now to get things going? I know that Steve won't want to be part of this forever, but lets face it, he's just too darn talented to NOT use! So he's agreed to do the photography part if I'll do the "post work". So I guess I get to create a title for creative designer?...or photo editor?...something along those lines.

But here's were I am seriously hitting a brick wall....every...and I mean that I've looked up has already been taken! I thought I was being all original by coming up with the name Wink Photography....but apparently 5 other peeps beat me to it. I thought of Rouge Photography, Winkology, Modern Light Photography....taken, taken, TAKEN, so I'm sending out an S.O.S.!

I NEED HELP! I would like a name that is easy to remember, yet soft (if that makes sense). Nobody has used Bell Photography...from what I can find....but someone has used that's an out too.

Any ideas? Hey...maybe if you don't live to far away, I can even offer you a free session! Or give you mad props! :)

Thanks everyone for any help you can offer!!
