Yuba City Children's Photographer | {Macie}

Macie is the kindest, most polite and fun little girl! We had a great time traveling around town doing some fun new photos.

Last year I got to capture Macie and her little sister with their lovely mom, Chari. I feel so blessed to have returning clients again this year and will be seeing them again this fall for Christmas photos (yes, its that time of year again ALREADY!).

Yuba City Senior Photographer | {Welcome to the HOT SQUAD!}

After many months of planning, meeting, thinking and working...I am so happy to announce the launch of something NEVER BEFORE DONE in our area for senior graduate photography. Its the HOT SQUAD.

Many of you know me as *THE* newborn photographer and newborns are my first love...nothing will ever compare to my newborn clients. My other love is senior photography. Its ironic really that I love catpturing your baby's first little wrinkles, toes and smiles and then also catpturing their fun and fresh personality as they graduate highschool, prepare for their future and spread their wings...Its really coming full circle.

There will be more updates to the site as well as a new logo and blog coming up ASAP...I just couldn't wait to launch it any longer!!! Welcome to the HOT SQUAD!

{The Hot Squad}

Q: What is the "Hot Squad"?
A: The Hot Squad is a program offered only by Jessica Cole Photography. A handful of seniors are selected from each high school as the "Top Hot Squad" and these select seniors are given a FREE senior session. Each of these Top Hot Squad members are given their Hot Squad Rep Cards to give to their friends or people they think are hot members of their school. Those members get a discounted session as well and some Hot Squad cards to give to their friends and so on...

Q: How are the Top Hot Squad Members chosen?
A: The Top Hot Squad members are chosen by their teachers, principals, community members, etc. They are chosen and nominated for good attitude, community service, academic success, participants of student government or can be a variety of choices that the student has made that shows they are a person of good character in our community. From there, its totally open to student selections by their friends and whomever they want to give their Hot Squad card to...besties, boyfriends, name it! The choice is yours from there!

Q: How much is the discount for Hot Squad members?
A: The Top Hot Squad members get a FREE session! The cards they give out are good for 75% off. Those Hot Squad cards are good for 50% off and so on...ALL senior members of the Hot Squad are given FREE rep cards and 32 FREE wallets to give to their friends.

Q: Why should I want to join the Hot Squad?
A: Why wouldn't you?! Its a fun way to see what all your friend's photos look like, swap photos, stories and rep cards. Its a good excuse to tell someone you think they are hot and that they deserve to show it off in an awesome and modern senior photo shoot. And a total bonus is that we have an end of the year HOT SQUAD PARTY featuring dancing and entertainment from TSP DJ Steve Allard, free prize swag, t-shirts, raffle prizes & more! This party is for members of the Hot Squad only and you will NOT want to be left out!

Yuba City Children's Photographer | {Claire Marie}

I am sure that most of you remember this little angel, baby Claire Marie.

Her mommy & daddy bought the baby stages package and we recently did her 'tummy time' session. She is ADORABLE but I was sort of sad that she didn't look a ton like her newborn days...her hair is lighter and her face is thinner...she is growing up right in front of my eyes...and lens! I love getting to see my newborn babies grow up & I feel so lucky to have a front row seat!

There is no denying where she gets her good looks-- momma!

And we had to throw in this fun shot because we have to do it again when she's 1 and 2 and 3...and see how she grows!

Yuba City Family Photographer | {What a fun family!}

This awesome family has not had a real family photo done all together in nearly 30 years!!! When the daughter scheduled our session, I had no idea that it was her mom's birthday too! YEAH! What an awesome gift to give to her.

All together there were 9 family members there and we managed to catch every possible photo opportunity in time for their BBQ and evening of karaoke! :) FUN!

Enjoy your sneak peek & HAPPY BIRTHDAY THERESA!

Birthday girl and her daughter, Melinda:

Melinda's 3 brothers:

Melinda's GORGEOUS neices (and can you believe how tall she is? She is only 11!):

Yuba City Senior Photographer | {Jennifer from Rocklin High! Class of 2010!}

Jennifer and her mom drove up this evening to do some senior photos and we had SO much fun! This girl is like most women and doesn't give herself much credit. She kept telling me that she didn't know how to pose. When I explained that we don't 'pose' we do what comes to us with some minor direction....look at what she turned out! AMAZING!

Jennifer, you are gorgeous and I know you have an amazing future ahead of you!!!

And, another sunflare...will the madness ever end? LOL!

Yuba City Photographer | {A couple of shots of a couple of lovebirds!}

My AMAZING helper Kristin has been very busy that few months...her husband is in the Army and has been gone leaving her with both kids, work and a litter of new puppies to handle all on her own.

When he came home for the 4th of July, she requested some 'couples' shots...we've done family photos a few times now and some of her kids but this time it was all about her and the love of her life. We wanted them to be fun, flirty and a little bit sexy...just like my Kristin herself!
