A lot has happened over this last quarter and Jess and I are so excited for all of God’s many blessings. The two biggest changes are the name change and the new equipment investment. We’ve changed from JN Media Group to JN Photography. With this change we have a new and better website (www.jnphotographyva.com), new business cards, hats, polos, and email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). The website is secured so it’s safe for convenient debit/credit card purchases, and clients can use PayPal too. We also have a new PayPal card reader so clients can order without going online. Check out the new website and tell us what you think. On the right-side of the website you can click on the link to easily follow us on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, and our upcoming YouTube channel.
The other huge change is the new equipment, specifically the new Canon 6D Mark II. This upgrade will allow us to do so much more than I can list here in this short newsletter, but the bottom line is your photographs are changing in quality from great to jaw-dropping amazing. With this camera we’ve also made several thousand dollars in equipment upgrades! So you can be the first to get the best photographs in Virginia with the newest technology available.
The JN Photography Wedding Packages now include complimentary engagement sessions. This allows couples to work with us, get to know us, and become more comfortable in front of a camera before the big day! And now we have four wedding packages that range from a budget friendly Silver Package at $462 to the elegant Platinum Package at $3,240.
And when clients invest their wedding photography with JNP we donate 10% of the investment to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. And that’s not all. The Wounded Warrior Project receives 10% of all sporting event photography and the Lynchburg Human Society receives 10% of all pet portraits. With JN Photography your portraits go farther than ever!
We also want to give a special shout out to a client, Emily. She has earned the title of Ms. Wheelchair Virginia, USA 2017! What a huge accomplishment! She plans on competing in the National pageant July 29th and 30th thanks to everybody’s prayers and support.
The last announcement I want to make is about two special events that JN Photography will be attending. The first annual Family Fun Day hosted by the Lynchburg Police Helping Hands Foundation (LPPHF ) is September 09, 2017 from 3:00pm to 11:00pm. The event is at DeVault Vineyards in Concord, Virginia and they’re giving away great door prizes from the vendors – including JN Photography. That’s right, you could win a huge prize from your favorite photography company. We’re donating one gift card that includes a family reunion package, a youth birthday party, senior pictures, AND a family portraiture session – all free to the lucky winner! Want more information about the LPPHF? Visit their website: www.lynchburgpolicehelpinghands.org.
The second event we want to highlight supports the Lynchburg First Church of the Nazarene Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program. MOPS is a fellowship time of encouragement, crafts, and food that supports mothers of young children. The details are still being worked out, but the tentative date is November 4, 2017 and participants will be having their photographs taken by local photographers for a low donation to the MOPS program. For more information about MOPS visit their website: www.mops.org.
Thank you all for making this last year so successful for us. To show our gratitude we now offer our clients a free photography session (up to $100) when their friends choose JN Photography for their portraiture needs. By all means, this is retroactive so go ahead and give us a call to cash in.
