cheap indian remy hair: Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Ezekiel: I like examining weblogs similar to this where it definitely tends to make me think of the vital specifics.

This is one of our favorite times of the year. We love Halloween. The absolute joy children feel when dressing up and becoming someone else is like magic. My daughter, at the age of 13, still LOVES this Halloween and professes that she will NEVER stop dressing up and participating in the Halloween festivities. And we LOVE to decorate the house too. Seriously….we LOVE to go all out. Giant spiders, bigger than human ghoulds, moving and howling ghost that travels up and down our porch, graveyard…..we love it all.

Yesterday my husband decorated for the big night and it got me thinking about all the precious trick-or-treaters we will be seeing very soon! And then I thought how wonderful it would be to offer tiny Halloween sessions at the studio this year! So that is what I am going to do! These will be short and sweet and will produce sweet images of your little princess or superhero, ghost or ghoul. Fur babies are welcome as well! There is limited availability for this special day so act quickly to book your space!

In case you didn’t know, I recently opened a studio in Five Points in the heart of downtown Columbia SC. And I am loving every moment I spend in the studio. It is small space but larger than it looks from the outside. We have put a lot of work and love into it and it is a pretty awesome place to be. And I am feeling so passionate about the work coming out of the studio! I love it so much it has inspired me to make a change to my session offerings and also to offer a little promotion this weekend! This offering is for expecting moms who would like to document their pregnancy is a beautiful way. So if you are expecting a baby or know someone who is, read on!

The change I am making is to retire the mini newborn photography session offering. This session was an all-inclusive package of the session and a generous selection of products including gift prints, a wall print, and custom birth announcements and a virtual brag book to share as much as you like for iPhones. It was a smaller session experience. And that is precisely why I am changing the session options. I want all my newborn clients to have the full newborn session experience. And so this weekend will be the last opportunity to book that mini newborn session option. Beginning Monday newborn session clients will have a choice of booking a full newborn session at home or in the new studio!

And to promote that new choice, this weekend only I am offering a complimentary studio mini maternity photo shoot to anyone booking a full newborn session! That offer is available whether you choose the in-home session or the studio session for your newborn shoot! Also, ask about the “beautiful maternity” option for that session if you would like to discuss an amazing hair styling and makeup application experience right in the studio!

To book your appointment and take advantage of the offer, call 803-348-3306 or email ashley@ashleywardphotography.com (and be sure to check your junk or trash if you do not hear back from me within 24 hours!).

I hope to hear from you!

Good morning! If you enjoyed the last post showing Elizabeth’s transformation and Beautiful Session portraits, and if you thought to yourself, “WOW! I wish I could do something like that!”…..well, what are you waiting for?! This is the perfect time to celebrate you! You are beautiful and being good to yourself not only increases your own happiness, but it benefits the lives of your husband, your children, your family and friends and anyone who cares about you! I would LOVE to get you into the studio! It’s your turn <3

The experience during and after your session will be amazing! Here is what Elizabeth and her husband Charley had to say:

“Ashley Ward and Ashley Ward Photography~
All I can say is a big WOW And Thank you for an awesome experience today.
MOTHERS DAY PERFECT GIFT INFO….…..Calling all Dads looking for that unforgettable gift for your wife for Mother’s day – It is something she would probably hesitate to buy for herself but she will LOVE it. I am a witness to the incredible and lasting experience that is Ashley Ward Photography’s Beautiful You session. It’s not called Beautiful you but that is exactly how the whole experience made me feel today.
Ashley has created an experience from when you walk through the front door of her new studio in 5 points, with the rich colors and glamorous feeling and style. You begin to feel the pampering as you move to the special dressing area to discuss outfit selection. No stress there – Ashley knows how to make a tank top and faded jeans be GLAMOROUS! Creating the professional looks for hair and makeup was Amy Schaming. She is such an artist! I was teased, curled, quaffed, extended and pampered!! I never knew my hair was capable of that!! Then the make up – oh my – better than a facial! And absolutely gorgeous! Then – photo time…
Each shot was carefully chosen and thought out – It was surprising and overwhelming to know that everything was focused on me – Each outfit, hair curl, accessories and body position were adjusted if it wasn’t just the exact way Ashley and Amy had envisioned me to look. The continual re-touching of hair, makeup, props and styling to make for the most beautiful shots made me feel like a super model, a movie star, a TV star, a Rockstar, a fairy princess and a beautiful Mom and wife… all in a few hours. But the feeling and experience will last a life time. I will have these photography portraits to give to my children. Who knows what tomorrow may bring – I may not even be here. But I am grateful that Ashley Ward captured this time in my life – not when I am 20 pounds lighter, or when I have flawless 18 year old skin or that bridal glow but instead with a few streaks of grey and one too many wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead. We get to an age where we begin to get behind the camera – not in front of it celebrating life and the beauty that God created in us because we don’t feel like we “look good” enough. I’m done with that. These images are life changing. I mean it. I may not look like I walked out of a professional photo shoot every day but I will carry this feeling with me. Ashley Ward is an artist and her vision is beautiful and she made me feel that way too…
I will post some of the shots on Monday. I am so excited! I hope you will get to experience her talent and vision soon!”

“Husbands take note. This is an amazing thing. You know your wife is beautiful, but does she know it? She should. Last weekend Elizabeth sat for a session with Ashley Ward photography. It is probably the first time since our wedding day that she did something to capture that beauty when it just about her. No babies, no kids, no dogs or husbands. Just her. That whole day after she was walking on a cloud. The experience was so special that she could not stop talking about it. I don’t know about any other guys, but my wife is more beautiful today than the day I married her. Now I get to share that with everyone. Eat your heart out!

This may not be something she would have done for herself if she had not been friends with Ashley. But now that I know how it made her feel I would buy it for her in a heartbeat. Forget the flowers and the candy. Get her one of these sessions with Ashley. Show her how beautiful she is.”
