2017 Best of the Year Contest

I'm excited to be back with the newest tradition at Jennifer Lynn Photography - the "Best of the Year" contest for 2017. This is my second year holding the contest and I so enjoyed it last year. I heard wonderful feedback and I personally loved the opportunity to give back to my wonderful clients in such a fun way.

Last year I took thousands of photos at over 45 sessions, not even counting minis, and once again enlisted my fellow photography friends to help me narrow down this year's selections. There were so many incredible moments and memories from these beautiful families it was truly a challenge to select just 20 contestants. Now I'm leaving it up to you to decide which photo earns the title of the 2017 Image of the Year and the grand prize!


  1. The image with the most votes win! To vote, cast your vote using the survey link at the bottom of this post. You can also earn a second vote by "liking" your favorite image in the "Best of 2017" album on Facebook. Share with friends and family so they have the chance to vote, too!
    The winner (an image with the most combined votes) will receive a 16x20 gallery wrapped canvas of the winning image (valued at $240)
  2. The Runner Up will receive a 11x14 gallery wrapped canvas of their second place image (valued at $195)
  3. TWO random voters will received a $100 Digital Photo Credit to be used towards a future session in 2017. That means that you will have the $50 Print Credit that comes with my packages PLUS an additional $100 credit to use toward my digital options.


There are now FOUR ways to win the digital photo credit.  In order to increase your chances of winning you should do all of the following:

  1. Leave a comment on this blog post describing why YOU want to win this extra digital credit toward a session of your choice. Be sure to tell me what session you are considering! 

  2. Share the ‘Best of 2017‘ album on Facebook.  To do so just click on the ‘Share’ link to share it on your wall. You can write a nice comment as well. Just make sure you let me know that you shared the album – otherwise I won’t know that you did and you won’t get credit and the additional voting chance.

  3. Follow Jennifer Lynn Photography on Instagram. Then tag a friend who you think would also love some bonus credits during a photo session this year. 

  4. Sign up for my newsletter, or if you already are receiving my newsletters, forward my last email to a friend so they can sign up. Just copy me on the email when you forward it and I'll give you AND your friend an additional point toward winning the digital credit. So share this with anyone you feel would love updated photos of their family, someone expecting a new baby, or even a family with a graduating senior.

I will randomly select two lucky voters from across all platforms to receive the digital credit for a session!


If you book a new session for your family while the contest is running (by February 13) you will receive an additional $25 print credit! That's on top of the already existing $50 print credit! So if you are thinking about having a session with Jennifer Lynn Photography anytime in 2018, NOW is a great time to book.  Keep in mind you can hold your session anytime in 2018.
