A Change of Name
Hey friends! So for the last two years, Nathan and I have been known as Nathan and Claudia, but we realized this isn't the best name for the business. We originally named it this because we thought that Nathan would be more involved and because it sounds better than Claudia and Nathan.
Well, Nathan isn't as involved as we thought he'd be. (The boy's got a lot going on and photography isn't his #1 passion, which is totally cool!)
So, we've decided to change it to Claudia Young Creative. Why not Claudia Young Photography? I want to give my business room to grow. I love videography, graphic design, website design, and more, so "Creative" will give me the option to expand my services as I go along. For now, I'll just be advertising photography and videography (although I am more than willing to design websites/graphics for you or your business!)
Have no fear - Nathan and I are happily married still. This name change has nothing to do with that. :) If anything, we're happier now than ever. We're letting each other have our own "things." Are we the only couple that got so caught up in being a "we" when we got married? I have a feeling we aren't.
The Big News
So here's the BIG news! We're moving back to Fayetteville, Arkansas, and I'll be doing photography and videography full time! I have been photographing since I was 11 years old. That's half of my life. I can't believe it took me this long to take the plunge. This is all I've ever wanted. I kept trying to find desk jobs that I'd be passionate about, but I really wasn't sold on any of them. I want to be as creative as I want with no restrictions. I want to be my own boss. I don't want my passion to only be in the evenings and on the weekends. So I'm doing the most terrifying thing ever - I'm going full time. I'll also be freelance writing and running social media for companies because that is my second passion!
If you didn't know, both of our families are in Northwest Arkansas, so we will get to be within 30 minutes from (almost) everyone! We are so relieved that we no longer have to make the drive from Little Rock to NWA to see family anymore. We miss our families and miss the Fayetteville culture so much and cannot wait to move in two-ish weeks!
