I got my first freelance design gig!

Beth's landlord runs a photography business (school photos, things like that) and has decided she wants a logo!  She's kicked a few things around in the past but feels like it's time to settle on something for good and really create some brand identity. 

This is my first design job outside of Ventus and I couldn't be more excited.  It also couldn't have come at a busier time... but that's okay, I'll manage.

So, any tips for a first time logo design? She seem pretty open to ideas, so I think it'll be a pretty quick thing.  Hopefully a pretty painless thing, too.
