my cute head hanging in ashame

Sooo freakin' embarased.

Here comes an aha moment of truth so brase yourself.

A year and a half and more than three hunnerd posts and know what I just realized? There is not one single pic on this blog of me w/ my face hidden by my super ginorm camera like I'm taking a really intense pic.

How will everyone know I'm serious about being a photog?

Maybe you can quickly take one with your iPhone covering your face.

Wait, that doesn't really help establish you as a photog, either.

Marylin said...

I was just turned onto your blog by a friend and I must say that you have so many issues! We could be very good friends!! love love

p.s only if you are cute though, cause I like my friends pretty!!

Get on that STAT! your photog business is sure to double :-)

dharvey said...

Oh yah, you need a pic of you holding up that camera with a ginorm telephoto lens attached to it, with the Wasatch Mounnains in the distance. Or a photo of the camera sitting on a tripod in front of your baby's who are wearing there cutest cloths. That way, you look seriously like such a rill photogrfer. Love you, XOXO.

Natalie said...

Oh, for ashame! Hahaha!

Courtney Price said...

I bet your camera strap would be way awesome too...

Mishqueen said...

Man, that's a big decision. You have to pick a photog to take your picture of you taking your picture! The photog has to be good enough to truly let your hotness and talent show through, but wouldn't it be icky if someone hired them instead of you? How do you balance your needs with your other needs?

WAIT!!!! I've got it!!! Use a mirror like they do in Myspace! THAT will make you look professional and you won't have icky competition either.

You can thank me through the giveaway; yur welcome! ;)

Jennifer said...

I guess you better get busy and post a pic of yourself

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Of course, there's not one single pic of you on the blog period. Much like yours truly. Great minds think alike.

Tarnation said...

U know how they say a pic is wertha thousnd werds? U have so many werds u don't need pics.

keighty said...

Oh em gee, TAMN. How are we all supposed to envy your apparent photog skills without getting a glimpse of your way-too-advanced-for-your-skill-level camera either?

Better get on that and fast.

Steve & Alli said...

LOL SO TRUE SOOOOOOOO TRUE!

The Boob Nazi said...

I know! I've been REALLY upset about this!!!!! How conceited can you really be if you don't take any pictures of yourself?!?!?

Erin said...

OMGosh, TAMN. Travesty.

You better get on that ASAP!!

Sara Ballstaedt said...

well then ADD ONE silly

Carrot Jello said...

If you do decide to take a picture of yourself, make sure it's an extreme closeup of like, your eye and part of your eyebrow or something. Maybe the corner of your mouth. Perhaps your leg in skinny jeans with your super cute shoe against your turquoise wall.
(I know you have one)
That is the only cool way to take pictures.
Not that I do that, I've just seen it on EVERY stinkin' blog.
Nevermind, I'm just jealous.
Make sure get those gold hair thingys I was telling you about before you take a cool picture.
Apparently, they're "all the rage" where you live.
Of course, I can just mail you the one that I ripped out of my hair at no cost.
Because I'm nice like that.
Sorry I know how to spell.
If it makes you feel any better, I have really bad grammar.

dharvey said...

Also you have to decide if you want a serious pretend photograffy bizness or a serious pretend hair bow bizness or a serious pretend bixness baking homemade roles with instructin videos. Or selling MLM products. They're alot of serious pretend bizness out there. XOXO, Love you.

Frau said...

You also haven't...

A) Published any photospreads. And by "photospreads" I mean the exact same picture over and over again with only miniscule movements. (And maybe one or two in black and white and a few fuzzy which looks artistic, not lame.) Lots of pics is how you show you're a real photographer. Because that's a sure test even though you don't have to prove that perfection comes before film costs these days.

b) Used your photoshop skills by taking the one cute pic you managed and putting it on different backgrounds. Because no one will ever notice that and wonder how fugly your kid really is when you only have one usable picture.

c) Tried to color black and white photos to be edgy and original - just like all the Hallmark cards.

d) Posted close-up pictures of flowers or baby hands. If you look at all the trends you'll see that there are several great ways to prove that you see the world through unique eyes!

Amanda said...

Ha- right on! I don't even have a ginorm camera so all the pic's on my blog are frumpy. But when I do finally get one, the first thing I'm going to do is take a pic of myself in the mirror taking a pic of myself in the mirror- rest ashured!

Parkside View said...

Seriously...I think I know exactly what blog you frequent for most of your inspiration. I read yours for kicks 'cause it's fake and that other one for kicks 'cause it's real.

Kara Miller said...

Oh shame on you! You're just an amateur.

bamatam said...

OK, "Parkside View," now I'm curious...I would love to read the blog of a real TAMN. Can you share?

rebekah said...

I really wish I could read some of the blogs you get your source material from. Bless you.

Jewls said...

I just noticed this blog link on a friend's blog and I'm curious...are you actually incapable of spelling and being grammatically correct, or do you do that on purpose...?!

Kemi said...

"Ashame".

Brilliant.

ilovelucy said...

i always wonder about people afraid to post there picture :O)
Can't wait to actually see you :O)

debbie said...

I, for one, apprecieate that you haven't posted a pictcher of yourself. I already feel so worthless and low, that I would need counselling if their was one more thing that you are (cute) that I'm not. This way I can pretend that I'm prolly at least as cute as you.

Bonnie said...

would you be praying so hard if you knew he would fall into satans trap of gay marraige??????

Mandy said...

Just make sure you photoshop your one eye that's open to make it glowing. Now THAT'S professional.

Mhana said...

Why is photography the art form of choice for the TAMNs of this world. I swear half the mormon women I know aspire to be photographers despite total lack of experience, training or talent. I hope we hit they heyday of decoupage or better still, performance art soon. I'd love to see some lovely young sister paint herself blue and prance around dramatically yelling random nouns. That would be a REAL ward talent show.

Whatever you do, make sure to tweak the tint so it looks vintage and photoshop the twinners eyes so they appear to glow in the dark.

The only art I plan to create will come out of my uterus. Frownsmile.

Kari said...

No prob! You're still the best EVER blogger and to show you how much you've added to my life I've given you this award:

Don't post a pic! Work as good as yours should only be viewed in a gallery showing. Don't de-mean your ritechaz self by putting your work out in the www where anybody could (gasp) use it! - So cal gal

kris and judd said...

You're not a "serious" professional photographer???

I feel like I did the day I found out Santa wasn't real.

Little Lovables said...

So embarrassed that my photo is of my tiny, wimpy camera, but I only did it b/c it is the best photo I have ever taken of myself in my entire life, though my smile isn't nearly as amazing as yours.

I know 'cuz I saw you at Cafe' Rio, but didn't want to make a scene since you had your entourage wearing vintage-like dresses with you and primping each other's hair and all.

forgive me? *frownsmile*

Little Lovables said...

Mhana... those who don't photography do vinyl lettering, decoupage is so old skool

Moniker Challenged said...

Mhana, you into menses art? I think the next logical hobby for LDS women is to find creative and artistic ways of preserving afterbirth ;-)

Missy W. said...

well, you could post some photos of the twins that have been photoshopped SO much that they looked like dolls with alien eyes. That should do it!

Laura said...

tamnie tamn, please divulge your other soo embarassing moments.

Frau said...

Oh Mhana, great idea!

The performance art world desperately needs Mormons so we can have good wholesome shows without nudity, swearing or that are dedicated to politically liberal ideas.

I get the feeling that it would be right up the alley of several LDS artists I know.

your tagline could be "totally amateur photography with totally professional equipment".
