How is everyone!!?!? I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving last week!!
I love the holiday season. It really gives you the chance to be thankful for your blessings and appreciate the past year. As we head into the end of 2017, I can’t help but look back at it all. Its crazy when you think about where you were last year, or even the year before that, and how different life can evolve in just a few years.
When you envision your future, sometimes, it doesn’t end up being what you pictured, its way better. I couldn’t be more happier of where this business has taken me. I met so many wonderful people and it has truly changed my life.
But as I evolve, so does this wonderful passion of mine. For me, my passion is my business. Not only to capture moments, but to make people laugh and smile. People are my true passion and I value the influence of kindness.
With that being said, I have a wonderful announcement to make. My business name will be changing.
When I started officially on my own in 2014, “Your Story” was created to focus on the story of my clients. But if I am being honest, “Your Story” was also a way to hide. To hide from the people who thought “oh boy not another photographer!!” Like many other business owners, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be taken seriously. Now years later, it feels a little silly to think about it.
I couldn’t begin to imagine then, how successful my venture would be. I am so grateful for all the opportunities that were opened for me this year. Now that we started to expand to other states, my “Your Story” name, started to clash with other businesses. It was then when I made the bittersweet decision of changing the name and rebranding.
Today, as a confident owner of my craft, I am excited to announce my new business name, Danielle Durbin Film & Photo.
I say farewell to “Your Story Films & Photography” and hello to a brand that represents my passion, style, & values.
I am just so grateful for all of the people I have worked with over the years and as a way of giving thanks for your continuous support & kindness, I will be holding a session giveaway in December. If you made it to the end of this, I really appreciate you taking the time to read my announcement out of your busy day. If you could take anything out of this long excerpt, I hope it will be confidence and courage to follow your dreams.
