Honoring Jamie

Our clients know her as “the Enhancer.”  The person on the Aesthetic Images team that made all things pretty.  Jamie Dinkins worked with our clients to design their books and albums, create their Christmas cards, retouch and enhance their photographic prints and envision stunning wall displays.  They also knew her to be prompt and friendly and just a pleasure to work with on their projects.

We are celebrating her and the last decade on our team.  Join us on Thursday,  January 31, to toast her.

Jamie Dinkins joined the Aesthetic Images Photography team as a one-day-a-week intern in 2009, while she finished her degree at Guilford Tech. She became full time after graduation and has been an important part of our team ever since.

After spending the last decade with our family, she is joining the growing Dinkins’ family business, SDI Surfaces.

Although we will miss her, we wish her all the best as she begins a new journey in her professional life.
