Joanie B. and I decided to be crazy and join our local Chamber of Commerce and boy oh boy are we glad we did!
Last week was spent almost entirely networking and attending luncheons, which (if you know us at all) is completely out of our comfort zone! We talked, shared business cards, talked some more, ate some food, talked some more, and met so many incredible people.
So, what does this mean?
For you, not much.
For us it means we're busier, more active in the community, It also means Joanie & Jenni B. All Things Media is getting more business, and that makes Joanie & Jenni B. very happy :)
After joining the chamber, we met a lot of people who have been to our website. So, we're curious! How did you find out about us? Have we worked with you before? Comment your answers below and we'll talk to your Thursday!
We're Joanie & Jenni B., a mother-daughter team trying to change the face of media. We're all about positivity and sharing inspiring stories, but we never want to share this inspiration without complete authenticity. So, we're positive but we're real.
We're photographers, videographers, writers, and designers, but above all we're STORYTELLERS!
Jenni (me) likes to create something out of nothing, which means writing my own scripts and fiction stories. But I love to use my videography skills to tell the stories of businesses and individuals. My favorite moment in any shoot is when the person in front of the camera has a breakthrough. It might be a 'bursting into tears' moment or a bout of uncontrollable laughter or something in between. No matter what 'that moment' looks like, it's always real and incredibly inspiring.
Joanie prefers to put her skills to use by telling real stories with real people and real inspiration. As a breast cancer survivor, she knows what it means to carry a heavy burden, a heavy story, but she also knows the kind of liberation that comes for the storyteller and listeners/viewers when that heaviness is released. There's no better platform to tell those stories than right here on the Internet and through social media. Take it from me (Jenni... her daughter and business partner... the one writing this post) Joanie is the person you want telling your story. She takes every project personally. Your story becomes her story. She treats it with the utmost respect and delicacy. She's truly amazing.
Just like my mom, I treat your story like my own. Every shot, every edit, every word is like life-or-death. Your story keeps me up at night, thinking about how I can tell it in the most inspiring and authentic way possible. These stories could be anything from a doggie Easter egg hunt at a chiropractor's office to the most important day of a man and woman's life, their wedding. No matter the situation and no matter the story, Joanie & Jenni B. are the ones you want telling it.
If you have a story, reach out! We'd love to meet you and hear your story.
Check back every Tuesday & Thursday for a new adventure. We'll be here to tell you all about it!
~ Joanie & Jenni B.
