I'd rather remain someone anonymous, so I'll change the name and places to protect the ignorant... I mean innocent.

Well, the lady's company name is... oh lets say Burrito Supreme Photography.  And her water mark is a very nice, very swirly font that spells BS photography.  Does she simply not know what the Acronym BS stands for in the rest of America... maybe the world? 

And every time she posts something on Facebook... I think... maybe she just simply doesn't know. Though I am really not one to talk since my company name is Dirty Sanchez Photography, but my acronym is DSP... so not nearly as awful. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

By all means tell her to change it!  You will be doing her a huge favor in the long run.

If she knows what it means and wants to stay with it then there isn't much to do, but if she doesn't know you'd do well to tell her.

Oh please explain the term BS.
One of my favorite tracks from Charles Mingus is called "To BS".
Thank you.

In western English it means "bullshit," and is usually unkind at best.

If she is a friend then just tell her straight up - after that she can decide for herself.

Supreme Burrito.

Just find a way to swap the words and hence letters.

I once persuaded my boss to change the name of our new operation from OGRR to GRRO. Thank goodness.   ::)

Like others here, yes I believe BS Photography will not be the best watermark for her to use.

Umm... you know the urban definition of "Dirty Sanchez" right  ;D ??
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

I'm not married you know, and in fact I'm a man  ;D

MRS really are my initials, and my plane tickets always state 'MR MR S....' so call me 'mister-mister' then :D
