Needed: SENIOR REPS 2010

Jackie Ranson Photography is looking for Senior Reps of the Class of 2010. If you are fun, outgoing and spontaneous and LOVE FREE stuff, this is for you. I will be choosing 5 students from each high school by the 1st of March. Yep I said ONLY 5! Get your application in early!

You will be getting a FREE senior session as well as some more free stuff, including Rep Cards that will have your picture on it and my information to pass out to your friends and family- each student that brings back your card will receive a 10% discount on their package price and 8 FREE wallets! You will receive a $10 print credit toward any picture(s) that you want when your friends book a session with me. That's each friend that books a session with me! You will also receive a FREE 5x7 print of your choice, 10 low resolution pictures (with my watermark) to use for your Facebook and Myspace and One FREE Family Portrait (5x7 print). And thats not all- whoever brings the most friends and they book a session with me, at the end of the school year of 2010, you will receive a FREE Photo Album with all your portraits taken at the time of the photo shoot. So if you think about you- your WHOLE SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION could be absolutely FREE! How cool is that? And who doesn't like FREE stuff- I know parents do!

So where do I sign up your asking? HERE~APPLICATION
Fill the application out by March 1st, wait to hear back from me, invite your friends to join- especially if they are from a different High School than you, make sure your PARENTS know about this, because they will have to sign a model release form to have you advertize for me (if you under the age of 18 {ID will be required}) and get ready for a awesome senior portrait session! So again fill this APPLICATION out and get started!

What to bring with you to the photo shoot:
* At least 3 outfit changes
* Props- examples: your hobby- photography, musical instruments, pets, skateboard, surf board etc., Sports- bring your uniform, your basketball, softball, gloves, ballet shoes, etc.
* Your parents are welcome to come if they want, but this is for you and you should show your own style.
* Your boyfriend/girlfriend or best friend- they can be in a few pictures.
* Your model release form (which you will recieve via email when you hear back from me)

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Craft (Teaser)

Lindsey and Lee got married on December 20, 2008. I had the privilege to photograph their wedding. The church was beautiful, the ceremony- very touching and the bride and groom were a gorgeous pair. Here is just a sneak peak into their wedding. Thank you Lee and Lindsey for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Enjoy your sneak peek!


I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding for a friend of mine. Well more like friends of mine. Emily is one of my SAI sisters at college and John is one of my husbands brothers in his fraternity. When Emily asked me to take her wedding pictures, I was more than thrilled! Of course I said yes in a heart beat! We first did her bridal shoot, which I have been dying to show everyone- here are some of my favorites from the shoot:

You can see more of the shoot here:

And the wedding was absolutely gorgeous just like the bride. Here is a quick teaser :) Thank you Emily and John for letting me be a part of your special day. Congrats to the both of you! I am so happy for you!!

And my favorite so far from the shoot:
