Our website is almost up and running, so we’re writing a quick introductory post. Why did we choose the name Jolie Images?
Since beginning to see the world through the photographer’s lens, we’ve both agreed that we see things in a new light. On a daily basis we now recognize the beauty in nature, or the sweet softness in our childrens’ faces — details we’d noticed in black and white before but now see vividly. When we chose our operating name, we wanted it to reflect that feeling we were both sharing. With a little bit of French language background and some brainstorming, we came up with the name Jolie Images. Jolie is French for “pretty”, and we do like pretty things. When we’re not taking photos you could find either one of us surrounded by crafts that include glitter! Believe me, we tried to think of a credible name that revolved around the word “sparkle” but it just didn’t pan out.
So there you have it: Jolie Images = Pretty Images. We hope you find that quality evolving in our work!
