FLASHBACK FRIDAY (11.05.10)

My little sweetheart about a year ago. I love finding old images that I never had time to edit and post. So now's a new image, but yet it's got that nostaliga feeling going at the same time. She sure has grown and changed the last year.

THEN AND NOW THURSDAY (11.04.10)

THIS WAS THEN!
LITTLE MISS KENTLY'S NEWBORN PORTRAITS...

I love capturing sleep smiles.

And here she is now, one year later! A vibrant happy ONE-YEAR OLD...

And as busy as can be...walking every where!

Isn't she precious!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES!

MIA...and a little rambling.


HELLO BLOGGING FOLKS...

not sure how many of you are still out there. I wonder if you have found yourself more into facebook than blogging...oh never mind, that's me!


So yes, I have been MISSING IN ACTION...what looks like 2 months since my last post. School is back in session. My daughter is a senior high school. YIKES!!! My beautiful, little, sweetheart granddaughter is in "real" school, aka, Kindergarten. Cotton is being harvested and my hubby is ginning cotton and the fall/holiday season of portrait has begun here. I've been doing my PORTRAIT SESSION FEE PACKAGES now for a year.


Overall the new way of doing buisness has been good. [See all the images on facebook.] Since it has now been a year, a year of trial an error, I think it is time to tweak my pricing and really advertise it. I think people are loving owning their own digital files and I am loving consistent income that comes with this type of session fee package plan. I am still over working them...which why I think it is time to tweak a bit, but overall I think this is "just right". So stay tuned as I update the link that is called, PORTRAIT SESSION FEE PACKAGES. It will remain the same page, I will just edit. So be sure and look again if you have been interested in booking a session, but haven't. There may be changes made by the time you actually book your session.


If you haven't been on facebook lately take a look. There's a link provided to the left. I recently held a contest for upcoming LSU/SAINTS PORTRAIT EVENTS that is coming up next Saturday, October 16th. There are three more sessions availabe for Saturday and a few for Friday morning (the 15th). So check that out. Congrats to the winners of the contests! It is going to be fun day! Would love to see you and your little tiger or you little Saints fan!

WON'T YOU BE MYYYYY TEDDY...

...that's the lyrics in Elvis' song My Teddy Bear. And I can't help by think of it every time I see images that were captured wearing the Teddy Bear cap.
I thought I would blog a new image her since I haven't done that much lately. I tend to be more into blogging or facebooking (is that a word?). These days, I must admit, it has been facebook. I am working on editing Maddix's newborn session today. I am a few weeks behind. It has been a busy summer. I am not complaining just giving my excuses. Isn't he handsome?

WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Congratulations to The Grand Prize Winner of the NAME THE PHOTO CONTEST, Holly McDonald. Also Congrats to Holly and her family on their new expectation. I have photographed Holly's first two adorably plump new babies both when they were about 6 weeks of age. She worked so hard sending people to vote so that she could save money on another Newborn Baby Session. She wants to have this baby photographed around the same age as her first two, Ava and Maddox, but she is considering doing them at the true newborn age 2 weeks or under. In the photography industry, newborn age is much younger than the clinical age. To photograph those little curled up newborns in the new style of new baby portraiture they must be photographed ASAP!
FIRST PLACE GRAND PRIZE WINNER:
With over 200 votes HOLLY wins 50% off any portrait session (up to $200 off) and she will also receive a 11x14 Heirloom Wall Portraits ($100 value).

I was in awe of how well this contest went: how quickly the votes added up; the response of the contestants at referring people to the jami ainsworth portraits facebook page and just how much I enjoyed seeing the numbers add up. There over 600 votes on the poll and also many additional votes fron the contest on the facebook page. The original contest was for 50% off for any portrait session package, value up to $200. Holly and another contestant were so close at time and the she took the lead. So as to reward both for being well above the others I am giving them both 50% off which is the reason I added the additional portrait to Holly's gift prize package.

Since the contest went so well and so many worked so hard to get the votes in I am adding runner-up prizes as well.

  1. FIRST RUNNER-UP: Deidra Cox with 134 votes for "Where's the Party?". She will win 50% off any session fee package. She has an "almost" one-year old grandson who she is wanting to be photographed very soon.
  2. SECOND RUNNER-UP: Crystal Shows-Tipton with 74 votes for "So we've established that I am the princess in this operation, my question is why am I sitting here waiting for my cake, presents, prince charming...? Someone is fired!" She will win $100 off any session fee package. I know Crystal has been planning to do family portraits and her son will soon be turning one. Maybe she'll choose a combination portrait session.
  3. THIRD RUNNERS-UP: These were so close that I am giving this prize to two people: Christal McGlothin and Darlene Curtis Walsworth. Christal's title of "Gone, Gone!" received 66 votes. "Oh well, I told Mikey to use E-trade," by Darlene received 63 votes. They will be receiving $75 of any portrait session fee package.
  4. FOURTH RUNNERS-UP: And a tie for fourth place totals go Nikki DeCell with "How old am I again?" (36 votes) and "You talking to me?" by Brittney Blaney Smith (36 votes). They will be receiving $50 off any portrait session fee package.

All Portrait Session Fee Package Discount Prizes must be used within 12 months from today's date.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to voted and to the contestants who spent hours solicting votes for your entry.

Here she is again: Little Miss Gracie in her very intersting photo. I had about 40 different entries. Thanks to all of you who entered. I've narrowed the selection down to 20 finalists. Now it's time for you, your family and just random folks to vote on their favorite. Each person only gets one vote...so sorry aunties and Mimi's like me who would spend hours voting so your baby get the prize.

Good luck to all of the Finalists!

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

LITTLE MISS LILY....











Little Miss Lily was photographed approximately 3 years ago (May 3, 2007), pre-blogging days, thus her images were never posted or blogged. So how appropriate to post these. I was going through a phase of using different tones and tints. I've gone back to more classic style and who knows maybe I will play more again soon, but I did learn through that phase as interesting and as pretty as they are, what usually sells are more traditional images. That is probably why I ended up gettting back the basics more. But who knows what phase I will go through next as I photographer. I do KNOW that I still really like these images. I hope you enjoy seeing them too!

THIS IS ANDREW!



I met Andrew and his mommy four years ago. I photographed Andrew's new baby session April 17, 2006. Wasn't he a very handsome baby boy? "Times flies fast when you're loving on babies!" I bet that's what he grandmothers say!

Then and Now THURSDAY #6

ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO I PHOTOGRAPHED THIS HANDSOME BABY BOY WITH LOTS AND LOTS OF HAIR and this was...


THEN...




Austin was 7 weeks old. A little older than I recommend for a newborn session. So I will just say this session was a "new baby" session. Wasn't he such a handsome/beautiful new baby!


NOW...





Now Austin is a handsome, sweet, adorable, lovable, two-year old! I photographed this Tuesday and I thought this morning since it is Thursday today...I should post these as THEN AND NOW THURSDAY POST.
