I have been keeping a secret for the past 2 months, but I can finally share the news that I did a rebrand and this is my new home! I honestly hadn’t planned on changing my photography website and blog. However, with a period of refocusing on myself and where my businesses are at, I decided to make some pretty big changes. I say businesses because yes, I am running two at the same time and have been since May 2014. While many people only know about Dana Rose Lee Photography and my passion for documenting children and families, I am also a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils.
For the last 2 1/2 years, I have been using essential oils. I have steered friends and family to better health and wellness. While some think this is just a side gig, I am ready to set my story straight. I have 2,885 people on my team with 863 people actively pursuing the business side. My personal team brings in over $170,000 in sales every month. It is hard to imagine, but the essential oil market is projected to reach 9.8 billion in 2020 (Globenewswire.com). So no, this isn’t just a fad. I fully believe this business, including mine, is going to keep on growing at a rapid rate.
So back to the shift of two business under one blog (I feel like I am reciting my Constitution). I wanted a place where my photography could co-exist with my oils and my journey of wellness. Where I could talk about my life happenings, both in business and in my personal life, without feeling like it had to fit in one category.
This shift was not an easy decision, having invested so much time and money into my photography website and blog. But this feels right and sometimes you just have to go with your heart, even if there are nerves involved. Let me tell you, there was definitely some anxiety over this. But once I decided I wanted a change, I immediately searched on Etsy and found a template by 17th Avenue Designs. I was in love: it was clean, simple, beautiful and all the pretty adjectives. Thanks to my oil loving friend and teammate Brittney Tyler, owner of AstroBarn Design, for designing my logo, which is my signature on all emails. She also designed my new business cards that are ah-mazing and just arrived!
Brittney didn’t stop there – she also designed my about me page! Go take a look – I mean, isn’t it freaking adorable?!
For my Dana Rose Lee Photography page, I wanted a simple gallery slideshow. I believe the images capture the essence of my work: bright, joyful, fun, carefree and happy.
Whew, there you have it – the makings of my happy place. I hope you will grab your hot beverage of choice and take a peek at my new home. Then you are always welcome to leave some LOVE.
