For me, coming up with a name for my business was not a simple task. I wanted it to represent who I am and my work and also to have meaning for me. I came up with the name "Joyful" because of two reasons:
My first reason is that I think "joyful" is a strong and emotional word. By definition, "joy" means "the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation. A state of happiness or felicity. To be glad; rejoice." I love those words- happiness, satisfying, elation, glad, rejoice. Though these words do not represent who I am and my life all the time, God gives me daily strength to be thankful for everything, big and small, and to count my blessings. It's very easy to get frustrated and to take things for granted. Life is so much better when we choose joy.
My second reason is that Cory and I have always loved the name Joy. When we were pregnant with Coen, we knew immediately that if we were having a girl, her name would be Joy. Since we never used the name, this was the perfect opportunity to name my fourth "baby" with the name Joy.
What I want for my clients is that their photos exude the joy and happiness of their family. I absolutely love capturing those moments of family and togetherness.
