Announcing Betsy King Photograpy!

No more waiting! Betsy King Photography it is! Or BKP if your nasty. (Sorry, Iโ€™m so into quoting late 80โ€™s songs lately!) I had considered using a more symbolic name for my business, but the people and things I photograph come to life because of the way I see the light, interact with them or…

    you cannot let the background go, it makes me so happy and I love looking at it….please, please, please don’t get rid of it! It is quirky, fun, bright, happy and artistic without trying to hard or being “teenage myspace layout”:)

    YAY! Betsy King Photography!!!!

  • richFebruary 26, 2009 - 9:34 pm

    Congrats!!! I love your background, too…

  • ida in QCFebruary 26, 2009 - 10:15 pm

    Congratulations Betsy! Everything looks lovely and I can’t wait to see the new logo. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!!

  • LynseyFebruary 26, 2009 - 10:25 pm

    Looks great! Can’t wait to see everything once it’s all put together!

  • Captured by JessFebruary 26, 2009 - 11:18 pm

    This is so exciting Betsy! Can’t wait to you get that logo up! I too love the background but if it interferes with the new design I won’t hold it against you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Perfect haiku!

  • melanieFebruary 27, 2009 - 3:15 am

    yay! congrats! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • jodieFebruary 27, 2009 - 4:53 am

    I can’t wait to see the new logo! And I bet you’re not as hard to work with as you think… designing a logo is HARD and takes lots of tries sometimes until you get it just right! Don’t beat yourself up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Domestic ChickyFebruary 27, 2009 - 8:31 am

    Congratulations! I can’t wait to see all you have in store! And i totally get (and appreciate) every goofy reference – it’s almost like I said them myself!!

  • HaleyFebruary 27, 2009 - 5:43 pm

  • LydiaFebruary 28, 2009 - 7:40 am

    Yay! Can’t wait to see what you and your designer create! I know how hard it is! I’m still trying to figure out exactly who I am, then I have to go looking for a designer!

  • Maya LaurentMarch 1, 2009 - 1:47 am

    It will all turn out so cool! The logo and look will come in time! It’ll take a bit of time…but it will be worth it!!!

  • Jamie DelaineMarch 2, 2009 - 9:59 pm

    You are just all kinds of fabulous. You know that?

what happens while I’m at the grocery store

Milesโ€™ new BFF, our good friend Chris, loves to come over and play with Miles. He decided to get out his video camera because Miles loves to watch himself. Well, Miles went NUTS. One of Milesโ€™ strong points is how well he can speak and pronounce words. Well, he has his own language in this…

    Wow – that is just ridiculously adorable! I think I read recently on Nate’s blog that his readers were going to need to flex their “eye-ceps” – That is one funny dude.

    We’re in the “invent-a-word/phrase” period, too. Unfortunately, he also repeats some things that I don’t want him to, but are hysterical. Case in point – I sliced up an apple a couple days ago for a snack and Murphy grabs the cinnamon shaker we let him sprinkle on his apples and says, “Hell yeah!”

    Good luck with the transition, we can’t wait to see your new look!

  • JessicaFebruary 25, 2009 - 5:58 pm

    He is a hoot! Love it! I am dying to know what “boom sauce” is exactly! Can’t imagine, but I like it! Miles always makes me smile.

  • annieFebruary 25, 2009 - 6:13 pm

    that is great! Chris is lucky he just kicked the camera – that boy had some legs going didn’t he?

  • Jessica ParkisonFebruary 25, 2009 - 9:02 pm

    Ha! Boom Sauce! Gotta love it. His face had that “uh oh” look after he kicked the camera. Sweet boy!

  • Anne WoehnkerFebruary 25, 2009 - 10:31 pm

    Love it – love it! I not only loved his “boomsauce” but his “oooohhh – ooooh – oooohhhss”!!! What is it about this kid? I found myself grinning ear-to-ear as I watched this video of him;) Such personality and adorability (is that a word???). It is so cool to see a video of him talking and moving around…..and to think I thought photos of him are cute . . . I think he got even cuter;)

  • adelinaFebruary 26, 2009 - 12:27 am

    aaww he’s adorable!! so very cute!

  • AnnieFebruary 26, 2009 - 1:19 am

    Wow, that is just way too cute! I love that “boom sauce” is the only part you can really understand. What a little ham!

  • Maya LaurentFebruary 26, 2009 - 2:04 am

    HILAROUS!!! He is one excited little guy!

  • GailFebruary 26, 2009 - 6:08 pm

    It’s official. Your kid is toooo freakin’ adorable for his own good! ๐Ÿ™‚

a tale of two businesses

For a long time now I have been promising big changes and hinting at a name change. I thought I would explain whatโ€™s going on with a little story time. What can I say, Iโ€™ve been reading a lot of childrenโ€™s books these daysโ€ฆ. Once there was a boy named John who got a guitar…

    You guys are so cute! My husband is a music major as well (so was I…but we don’t speak of that any more haha). So cool to see what other people are doing. Best of luck to both of you this year, I’m sure you will both be fabulous!

  • Meredith WilliamsFebruary 24, 2009 - 3:50 am

    What a sweet story! I can’t wait to hear the new name and see your new logo!!

  • JessicaFebruary 24, 2009 - 3:54 am

    Yay!!! Congrats Betsy good luck!

  • AbraFebruary 24, 2009 - 4:41 am

    Growing pains suck while they are happening but what you learn from them is invaluable. It’s nice to see you embracing it and not letting it hold you back. What a wonderful relationship the two of you have. So selfless. Reminds me of that short story ‘The Gift of the Magi” (or however you spell it). Can’t wait to see the changes.

  • ZakFebruary 24, 2009 - 4:51 am

    Now that’s a cool story! Can’t wait to see the new stuff. Checked out metta audio…very nice! ๐Ÿ™‚ Added you to my reader…trying to bump CA up the list. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • BetsyFebruary 24, 2009 - 5:12 am

    Thank you guys so much! The wait has been ridiculous, but good things come to those who wait so I’m working on being patient with myself. ; )

  • AmandaFebruary 24, 2009 - 1:58 pm

    That was just the cutest little story time ever! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You and John are truly creative souls and I find it very inspiring. Good luck with everything as you finalize your transition. =)

  • MelissaFebruary 24, 2009 - 2:14 pm

    Can’t wait to see what’s coming next!

  • Jess (studio3z)February 24, 2009 - 2:34 pm

    you guys are adorable. I can’t wait to see your new “stuff” coming!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ it is so cool that you both are able to have jobs that are dreams fulfilled. Such a rare thing. Love you guys!!

  • KateFebruary 24, 2009 - 3:19 pm

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful story! Congrats to you guys! Can’t wait to see what 2009 brings to each of you! Best wishes!

  • SarahFebruary 24, 2009 - 3:36 pm

    I loved story time. I’m sure you guys will continue to have much success. I can’t believe how much Miles has grown.

  • MichelleFebruary 24, 2009 - 3:47 pm

    Thanks for catching us up (us new stalkers). ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s fun to watch an evolution and inspiring, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll be waiting patiently for the next installment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • DoodleBunz/DB ImpressionsFebruary 24, 2009 - 4:11 pm

    What a fun way to tell your story! Best wishes, I’m sure there’s wonderful things in both your futures (and in Miles’ future as well)!

  • SaraFebruary 24, 2009 - 7:43 pm

    your story is adorable! I love that picture of you and Neilah, it’s too cute! Audrey was talking about music class this weekend and she said she wanted to see Betsy, Miles, and Miles’ daddy…too funny!

  • Kellie hFebruary 25, 2009 - 4:31 am

    wow much to come in 2009…it will be a great year for you I can tell! …somewhat bittersweet it seems from your sweet post. best wishes Betsy!

  • Captured by JessFebruary 25, 2009 - 4:48 am

    What an exciting time! I’m so happy for you and can’t wait to see the new changes and your gorgeous work in 2009. Yay!

  • VanessaFebruary 25, 2009 - 9:26 pm

    Hi Betsy, I’ve been stalking your blog for awhile and thought I would finally comment. ๐Ÿ™‚ There are many similarites between our families: I also do photography, my husband is a musician (we met in high school marching band) and we’re also from Indiana (Scottsburg). We love John’s marching band music, and your photos are wonderful. We have no kids yet, but your adorable Miles makes me want one more and more. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing all you do. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Maya LaurentFebruary 26, 2009 - 2:02 am

    You crack me up how you told this! Great things will happen this year for you two!!

smiling sunday

Remember that bad day I had last post? Thatโ€™s a long lost memory now. After a great weekend, Iโ€™m excited to start tomorrow off fresh and to finally get rolling on sharing some of the big changes going on around here. Before I get rolling on that this week, hereโ€™s a bit of our lazy…

wrapped up in love

Today was not the greatest day. I was feeling down and just couldnโ€™t shake it. Despite going for the caffeinated tea to try to perk me up, trying some handstands (Iโ€™ve heard it can reverse your energy flow or something) and a hot bath, I decided to pull out the big guns and asked John… Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

    Haha, yes! He’s IncrediBoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Today was also not our best and am hoping for a better tomorrow. I blogged a bunch of things today trying to shake the worst out of me… Here’s to a great Friday!

  • CassieFebruary 20, 2009 - 1:44 pm

    I was feeling pretty poopy yesterday, too, and I also went for the caffeinated coffee…but it just left me shaky and lightheaded ๐Ÿ™‚ What a wonderful mood-lifter you had, though!

  • redFebruary 20, 2009 - 1:51 pm

    That looks like so much fun! I need to try that with my little guy, i bet he’d love it too.

  • heidiFebruary 20, 2009 - 7:23 pm
