Brain-freeze. I feel like I have one. I have been waiting months to finally be able to blog…and now that I can, I can’t decide where to start! I wanted to think of something clever, something to blow the socks of my new readers. But, after staring at my computer for hours, cleaning my entire house, vacuuming my curtains, clipping my dogs’ nails, and any other distraction and delay I could dream of, I was still sitting here…waiting for a lightning bolt of genius to strike me in the head. It wasn’t until I thought about our most frequently asked question, that I finally realized what my first post should be about!
Wait for it…..wait for it……are you ready?? Here it comes…..
Fishtale!! I’m going to blog about our business name, therefore documenting the reason for it, for the entire world to see.
“Why the name Fishtale?” If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that….actually, if I did in fact have a nickel for every time I’ve heard that, I’d have about $50 bucks (that’s getting asked about one thousand times for those of you math challenged people out there, like myself). However, I do want to set the record straight, right here, right now. When we (my husband and business partner, Seth and I) were looking to name our business, we wanted to pick something that was as unique as us. As unique as we are as individuals, as a couple, and as photographers. We also wanted to pick something different than just our plain old names (not that I have anything against my married name!). Lastly, we wanted our name to convey the message that our pictures tell a story. After all, that’s what it’s really all about. We want to tell a story with every picture we take. Whether it is a series of photogaphs, or just one simple picture. That old cliche, a picture is worth a thousand words, is not completely off base… I believe that a picture should be valued by the story it tells. Hence our new tagline and brand concept: Tales of Life. Tales of Love.
I hope to bring you stories through our pictures on a daily basis! So, sit back, relax and enjoy the story.
** Please note that this is not the actual camera I use (although it would be pretty cool if it was). In fact, I don’t think this camera has taken a picture in many years. This vintage camera was given to me as a young child and helped inspire my passion for photography.
