Welcome to the blog of Just Joy Imaging!
I have had a lot of new readers and followers on my photography journey over the last few months and I want to say THANK YOU! I appreciate all of you! I also want to send a HUGE shout out to all of you beautiful people who have been supporting me all the way along this creative journey of mine! THANK YOU!
I was recently talking to some fellow photographers and when I told them the origin behind my business name, they thought it was the greatest thing but having known me for a while, they were surprised that didn't know it before then! So here it is, this is why I am called Just Joy Imaging!
I was in college and trying to think of an original name for branding my business. I did not want to use my last name because I have every intention when the day comes to get married to change my last name to my husband's (no further details here, the status is still happily single, just to clarify). From this, I knew I had to think of a name that would be relevant to me and catchy to those who heard it so when they didn't get my first and last name when my business was introduced, they still remembered me.
Sitting in my college lab talking with my college mates as we were throwing out ideas, I started to get the creative juices flowing. I went home and was thinking of things like, Pure Joy and different other options to do with Joy because well that name is gonna be sticking around forever so I felt confident to put it in my business name. :)
Well then the light turned on, what about Just Joy! And you are like, yeah, we know you picked that, it is your business name, silly! Well, the reason it stuck was because when I was born my dad wanted me to be just Joy, nothing more and nothing less. This means I do not have a middle name! So I am truly in every sense of the word, Just JOY! Thanks, Dad! Just over 23 years ago you named my company without even knowing it!
The inspiration of my dad's decision all of those years ago birthed such a purpose and destiny in me in so many different areas of my life but most strongly I believe in my work! My goal in every session, wedding, event and consultation is to just bring joy to the table. The rest just happens because, with joy, you have hope, you have love, you have all the little moments in life that come together to create your beautiful stories! My greatest joy is being able to help you create your stories and find the beauty of life together with the ones you love!
I am Just Joy and you can Call Me A Dreamer!
