update - I love this look and style -
Target Audience: Families with children, seniors, people open to having portraits taken in an unconventional manner. I get to know my clients really well and incorporate things they are interested in. If a senior loves music, I light them up on a beautiful stage and photograph them playing emotionally. Last year I had a Senior who loves water and I captured her jumping through a fountain. I build personal relationships with people that are unique and strive to make my images portray that. I also do the occasional wedding so my logo really needs to be multi-functional.
My logo ideally would represent a strong business but with a feminine edge. I really love bright, vibrant greens (think spring grass). I would like to convey an image of timeless classic mixed with a touch of vintage. My website has elements of lace and linen which will be remaining, the rest of the site will be reconstructed to follow the brand my logo will be conveying.

I've attempted several logo designs on my own and while I have liked both of them, neither of them have had any staying power. With my current logo, I really do not like the first font (Simply * Glamorous) but I love the second (Champagne & Limousines.) I like fonts that have a uniqueness to them. Some favorites are Trajan Pro, Birmingham, Champagne & Limousines, Jellyka Delicious Cake, Sudestada, Vermandois, Bellucia (love), Emily Lime, Lavanderia, & Saissant.
I love Italy, anything romantic. These are all things I am wishing to convey with my business. A vintage, romantic, upscale, professional image. I enjoy the bird that I included immensely, incorporating a bird, while not a requirement is definitely something I would like. I like crests too, I think they evoke a powerful and longstanding feeling if done properly.
A few other logos I like the look of:
Nothing cartoon-like, please. If it's abstract, that's fine but I don't want a bunch of little baby birds and fake flowers.
EDITED TO ADD: I am also open to any creative insight as well. Please feel free to use your own ideas. Share your creativity and expertise, please!
EDITED TO ADD:
I added some logos that I like below. If the logo is JUST text, the text is only a reference of what I like for a font, not a logo. I would like my logo to be more than just text.
