What's in a name?

I am often asked the question "why the name Yellow Canary Photography?"  I know the name may seem odd to some who might assume that I am a pet photographer but there is meaning behind my business name.  When trying to find something I liked (because Anderson is quite common) I was trying to think of things that I like.  I thought of my Great Grandma who used to have this crazy, bright yellow, happy face cookie jar and how it fit her spunky personality.  I like the color yellow and think it is a happy and fun color without being overpowering.  I then thought that the name Canary went with it well and I had the instant image of the logo, colors, the entire package of what I envisioned this to be.  I wanted vintage and subtle items in my studio space and knew it would go well with my style of luxury photo sessions.  So that is the meaning behind my business name, it is a nod to my Great Grandma who passed away several years ago.
