To a pro, we see this all the time. Jasmines have been around since I started and I'm sure long before. In fact we see Kyras all the time too.
We see the mediocre photographer but great marketer make a fortune, but we also see the Kyra's bashing around the photography world, undercutting in price, talking about finding her lighting style, but at least trying.
Photography is a tough business. No license required, no talent required, but if you can sell yourself you're in.
The Jasmines usually burn out because they move on to be a star somewhere else. No commitment.
But if you are looking for a fun easy way to make a living, photography in this era is not gonna happen for you. Too many cameras, too many amateurs undercutting prices, and too many people buying anything that is hyped to them. On top of that portraits on a wall are not even a top priority to many people any more. They can buy an 8x10, illegally scan it, make prints or just put it on their phone or ipad or computer and who needs a wall portrait.
The times have changed.
