One of my favorite things...

is that this business allows me to follow someone through their life. This dad-to-be and I have grown up together (since we were 6!!!). His gorgeous wife, Sara, is 34 weeks pregnant with their first baby-- a little girl! I am really thrilled that I will also be photographing her in her newborn session and likely also getting to see our kids all grow up together just as this dad and I did. What an awesome blessing...I love my job!!!

Meet Evan...

This little one already has a very special place in my heart...he is my very best girlfriend's new little one. His mom and I were INSEPERABLE since we met in Kindergarten and I had the absolute joy of meeting Evan Jacob McNally today and doing his newborn session. What a doll. He was so calm and relaxed (well, until I took his diaper off and he peed on dad). Enjoy his sneak peek for mom and grandma!

Deagan Ryker DeLuca...this little guy wasn't too little...weighing in at 8lbs 10oz, he was probably one of my most anticipated new arrivals to date. You might recognize his glowing mommy-- I did her maternity portraits as well.

Here is a sneak peek for his mommy, daddy and new big sister. Thanks again for the opportunity to be part of this fantastic time in your lives!

Exciting news!!!

Dear Friends,
It is with great excitement that I announce a new partnership in my photography business. Jessica Cole Photography is merging with Michelle Chandler of Moments to Remember Photography. Michelle is the owner and operator of Chandler’s Busy Bees Daycare in Yuba City. She began Moments to Remember Photography in 2007 and has met wild success in her endeavor. She lives in Yuba City with her husband of 11 years and their two gorgeous children.

As business partners, we will maintain the business name of Moments to Remember Photography and will combine our distinctive styles, personalities and creative visions for this business.

We can proudly announce that we will begin construction on a state of the art photography studio with a full acre of fully landscaped beauty to capture your magical moments. The new studio will be centrally located in Yuba City and work will begin this winter and be completed before the summer’s end. Both Michelle and I are thrilled to have this opportunity at our fingertips to better serve our clients, their families and our community.

There will be many new updates to the Moments to Remember website and galleries very soon as we merge our businesses. Make sure you check out for updated galleries that showcase both my work as well as Michelle’s. Also, we have a new ‘Behind the Scenes’ blog page. The blog is a great way to view recent work, sneak peeks from recent sessions, promotions, specials and much more!
My website will remain active for a temporary period as I still have clients that I am working with/hosting galleries.

Thank you again to all my clients for your loyalty and support. I can’t wait for Michelle to get to meet you all and we are so thrilled to be the change in photography that we feel this community needs.

Isabella & Isaiah

Check out these little darlings...too cute for words!

Christian & his family

I just love this little guy! He sits so still for the camera, looks right thru my lens and smiles like a champ. I swear, he couldn't be easier to photograph if I wanted him to be...enjoy!

Blake Family

While shooting the Blake's today, I got to catch some wonderful family shots and moments for them. Here are some of my favorites to share...

Michele, Rich, Gannon & baby girl!

I had the pleasure of shooting my dear friend Michele and her stunning family today. I swear, I have never seen a more glowing pregnant woman in my life! As usual, most of my shots are straight from the camera with very minimal editing required. Michele really wanted me to 'make her look fabulous'...well, following her request, I think she looks FABULOUS! And...none of these are retouched and edited!

Michele, you are gorgeous and editing needed girl! ;)

This is one of my favorite poses. My husband actually had this idea when we did our maternity photos and I think I took it to another level today with this amazing couple!

And of course, you can't help but just ADORE little 'G'...seems like just yesterday he was just a baby himself!

My 1st wedding!!!

Today I had the pleasure of shooting my first wedding with my friend and fellow photographer, Michelle Chandler. Michelle owns Busy Bees Daycare as well as Moments to Remember Photography. She is amazing and as we work together more and more, we are having a blast! Today, we traveled to Tahoe together for a FUN couple, Tad & Nicole, and shot their casino wedding. It was so classy, tasteful, elegant but also fun, relaxed and intimate. Here are some of my sneak peeks...more to come soon!

Lastly, I have to share this one of Nicole and her mom. Its one of those shots that is not 'technically' a perfect shot (heck, it was taken in the reflection of a mirror that OBVIOUSLY needs to be cleaned) but the moment was so real and tender that the specks, reflections and noise make it so perfect. Love it!

All around, today was amazing. This couple has such a wonderful love story that I couldn't help but get misty eyed throughout the day. What a great experience! Now that I have shot a wedding, you just never know what might be around the corner for me and Jessica Cole Photography!

"the white card"...look for them!

I have a new card...the white card. It's a special little card. It's business card sized and if you find one when you are out and about, save it! Call me, book a session and get some fantastic deals. Finding a white card really pays off!


That's right...I am holding a contest! What do you win??? A FREE maternity session with me! What do you have to do to win??? Write me an essay. No, this is not English 101 so typos and spelling are not going to count against you. Here's the scoop:

Tell me about your journey to pregnancy. I want to hear what/when/how you decided to have a family, how your journey to parenthood began, what trials and struggles you had to endure (if any) and what you are most excited about in the future for you as parent(s). Spill the beans about your little bean and you will have a chance to win a free maternity session.

Not enough? Well, the top 3 essays will be entered for a drawing for a FREE newborn shoot as well!

All essays need to be typed and emailed (as an attached Word document) to me at BEFORE midnight on December 5th. All entries will be read by ME only (so don't worry about giving me the real scoop) and judged by ME only.

Remember to check out my website galleries for samples of my maternity & newborn work too...start thinking of the ideas YOU want for your FREE session!
