Once oliva added her designs for the project I was able to get really excited about my potential logo. I ended up upgrading so I could have a few variations. Appreciate her creative initiative and the end result.
How SJPhoto started their logo design journey

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I would like 2 versions of the logo. The first will be the full version to read as "Sherri J Photography" with a hummingbird or some sort of graphic icon. I want to use the logo on marketing materials, my website, buiz cards. I plan on having it animated in the future.
I would like the second version of the logo to be an abbreviated icon of the full logo so I can use it for tagging my photos. It needs to be easily readable and simple so people can identify with my brand, but at the same time does not distract from my photographs. If possible I would like it to say "SJP" or just a piece from the full logo.
Please blend all elements together.
COLORS: I like light blue and royal blue, medium to darkish brown, and light green together... but would be open to your ideas and interpretations.
I want the final logo as a vector graphic in EPS and Illustrator format.
