Where the NTME comes from..

Natasha Esguerra

Usually when I hand people my business card and it says NTME on it, they don't read it as such.  I always find it amusing because I totally understand why most people won't get it on the first try.  I didn't mean to be so difficult when it came to choosing my business's name, it just happened this way.  But let me explain the method behind the madness, and why I ultimately ended up choosing a name that usually befuddles most people when they first try to pronounce it :)

When I thought about starting my business, I was coming up with some really not-cool names.  For instance:

"The Happy Photographer" (huh??)
"Sunshine Photography" (bleh!)

Come on Tasha, HAHAHAHAH!  Enough said.

So I was like, what if I use my name?

"Natasha Esguerra Photography"

Looks great, most people do it this way, but then I'll have another problem - pronunciation LOL.  In the time I've been married to my wonderful husband, I've heard a total of 2 non-filipino people pronounce it correctly, and I'd like to take a stab and say it's because both of them were spanish-speaking hehehehehe!  It's filipino name, of spanish descent... or something like that.  Most people will not get it, and that's totally fine :)

So I decided to try some initials.

E Photography. 
Nope.

N.E. Photography
Standing for Natasha Esguerra, but N.E. sounds like "any", and I don't want anyone to think I'm just "any" photographer hahaha!

What if I add another initial?

N.M.E. Photography
Standing for Natasha Marshall Esguerra, but now I have another problem.  N-M-E sounds like "enemy" LOL


Okay let's add the T...

NTME Photography
(Stands for Natasha Theresa Marshall Esguerra... Hmm.... This is different... and I will appear first in google searches if someone searches my initials lol...)

Edit:  I just googled "NTME" and I actually come in second to something called "Nameless Tile Map Editor", whatever that is LOL!!

The issue though with NTME is I now get the following when I hand someone a business card:

Oh cool, "N-Time" Photography?

Oh cool, "Not-Me" Photography?
Oh cool, "N-Timmy" Photography?



But once I clarify that it's my initials, all is gravy.  I chuckle to myself every time, because I know I brought this upon myself.

So that's where NTME comes from - my name abbreviated.   I was thinking that after being in business for a year, I'd consider changing it to "Photography by Natasha Theresa" (which I am kicking myself for not thinking of during the initial name-choosing process), but I think it's a little late, and people told me I should just keep it.

So now I embrace it.

And so there you have it - I am NTME.  And the images below are what NTME is all about :)

















Yay for N-T-M-E!! :)
