Betse… Fiddler and Photographer

I hate pictures of myself. ‘nuf said. Then my friend Betse Ellis… (yes, people… the bad ass fiddle playin’ Betse that we all know and love and scratch and claw to see whenever she happens to be in town)… well Betse came along with her dang I-phone and Instagrammed me.  DAng.  I love the pictures she made… and I have seen her other Instagrams and daNG… they are lovely.  Apparently this phenomenal fiddler (and people, I am not exaggerating… she burns down the house when she plays) is also talented with her eye. I am happy to have been on the lens side of her…this time! Thanks Betse!

…and when and if you get the chance to see Betse with her band, The Wilders …or Betse on her own … do yourself a favor and go. I guarantee you will never be the same!

It Was A Win/Win Situation

On Wednesday, September 28, 2011… Sporting KC beat the Columbus Crew 2-1.  WIN!

After the game, the handsome and dashing Teal Bunbury  was signing autographs.  I happened to be in the right place at the right time with my camera … the cute lil’ tyke’s parents had forgotten their camera at home… so I stepped in, snapped away and emailed the picture above to them…they were happy. I was happy. The baby was happy. Teal Bunbury looked happy.  WIN!

It was a Win/Win for sure.  Go Sporting KC!  Make it a WIN this Saturday.


New Office Manager (Updated)

Office Manager Tank

Tank... Office Manager for Taffyfoto


Himsmostpretty is my new office manager. Now that I have decided to start my own photography business, hims has been very helpful, mostly chewing up post-it-notes that have made their way to the ground. (If I haven’t returned your call, this may be why.)

I know I have blogged this news already over on my (mostly) knitting blog, Taffyyarn,  so forgive me, reader(s), for repeating… but it is exciting to announce that I am starting a photography business and Tank is my office manager.   I am still learning lots about “the biz” and I have my dear friends, Shari Hartbauer and Brud Jones  at Digital Labrador to thank for getting me on the right track and helping me when I get stuck.  They have been amazing!

Of course, Tank has been supportive as well… Hims brings me knitting when I get too overwhelmed and need a break.

Tank… keepin’ it real.

Tank will be making an announcement when the website for Taffyfoto is up and running.  Such a hard-working pretty pooch!
