Of course you can purchase whatever you wish off of our Collector's Series Price List.  Images may be shown immediately following   your portrait session (by appointment only) or can be put online for you and your family to view and order from home.



How do I get votes?


The best way to get votes is to tell EVERYONE YOU KNOW to become a Facebook Fan of Artistic Images and vote by commenting  on YOUR CHILD's image in the category that most appropriately fits your child's image.

Not on Facebook?  Go to the E-Blogand vote by commenting on YOUR CHILD's image in the appropriate category.

Votes count ONLY when they are from different people(different facebook accts and/or email addresses)...EX: you, your husband, your mom and your aunt can all vote and each vote will count.  YOU can NOT vote 53 times :)

The more friends, acquaintances, coworkers, etc that you know the more votes you will get! 

PLUS...the fact that Artistic Images already has a lot of fans and Elizabeth has a lot of friends, people that you don't even know will also vote for your child's image.

So, it is simple
