Fall Sessions & Something Important

HI Fans and Clients!!
Im super excited to announce the 2013 Fall Minis! These seem to be my most popular sessions and Im happy that I have decided to do them again this year.


There is a choice between a FULL session and a MINI session~  since I know so many people are on a budget this time of year, I thought it would be nice to be able to have a very reasonable priced package.  I also decided that sometimes 15 minutes isn't enough for some people and want more, so I have included full sessions as well.

I will be doing two locations this year for the Minis: ESVA {place TBA very soon and Downtown Yorktown.
ESVA:  October 12 from 4-6 pm
Yorktown: November 2 from 4-6 pm

Each session is 15 minutes long and you will receive 5 digital files with a print release along with 5x7 prints of each file.  For only $85!

For a FULL session- you will get the choice of location within Virginia!{depending on location, a small travel/toll fee may apply} You will also receive 10-20 digital files with print release and 5x7 prints with each file.  For only $250! {THESE are VERY limited only ONE for October and ONE for November}

TO BOOK email me at:  contactjackieranson@gmail.com

 NOW TO THE SOMETHING IMPORTANT!! THIS is for my Eastern Shore of Virginia Fans and Clients:

These will be my LAST ESVA minis ever!  I won't be shooting much on the eastern shore anymore, due to the fact that there are SO many other photographers over there that I can't afford to do it anymore. I hope that everyone understands and I truly TRULY appreciate all of my returning clients! You have become more than just clients, but friends to me and I couldn't have done my small little business without you! I thank you SO much for believing in me and for sticking with me throughout these years! NOW for those of you come to me every year, I will make it in my best effort to be able to still come shoot for your beautiful families but I will not be taking on anymore new clients..  You are more than welcome to meet me halfway or even come closer to me for some shoots as well.. Im not leaving your stranded! I promise :) Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!! <3 br="">

Welcome Home USS Enterprise {OpLove Photographer Virginia}

What can I say about military homecomings that isn't going to be emotional? I don't think I can find something that won't be.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE being a Operation Love: Reunited Photographer.  I love giving back to those who have serviced our beautiful country, for those who are grateful, for those who will cherish these memories forever. I understand the hardship, the distance, the bad days, the good days that goes with being a military spouse. Im coming up on 4 years myself being a Marine Wife {with kids} So to be able to capture this amazing emotional event that happens after a very long 6-10 months, I'm honored to do it.

I got to photograph, not just pier side this time but also a fly in!My first fly in, I might add! It was so much fun and very emotional! I always say, I have to wear my sunglasses so my clients can't see me getting all teary eyed for them! I get like this. EVERY. SINGLE.TIME. I just can't help it! I love homecomings!!

Welcome Home ScrewTops and the rest of the crew from the USS Enterprise!! 

{all photos are © Jackie Ranson Photography. Do Not Copy. }

First up is the Rybar Family! I was so excited was C asked me to photograph their homecoming! Last deployment A was on, I got to photograph their already gone session. I was then suppose to photograph their fly in. If anyone knows the military, their dates change.. OFTEN.. and I couldn't do it. I was so sad, but so happy that C could find another photographer.  THIS YEAR, when she emailed me, I made SURE I was available! I wasn't going to miss this last homecoming for the Enterprise, let along this one again.  Thank you so much Camille for allowing me to capture these memories for you! I love you and your family! Best of luck in your upcoming move!

and my favorite of the day from the fly in:

USS Enterprise: This is the last time this carrier will ever be out! They are retiring it. Im so glad that I got to witness the last time this ship will make port. Enjoy from Pier Side.
