Post Overload

You might recognize baby "R" I had to have here come back because I just didn't get enough of her and I am so glad she did. I love so many of them. Oh, and what do you think of the new chair from the thrift store?

Matilda Jane Trunk Show my home in March on the 27th 28th 29th. I know it's a ways away but wanted to get the word out so you can save your money. These clothes are to die for cute. Check my link out on the right. It's open to anyone and everyone (my email link is also on the right in availibility) I can give you my address or if your out of state I can arrange a catalogue for you and also place the order.



It it cold out! So the storm/whiteout yesterday was crazy and I can't believe I even drove the children to pre-school in it, it seriously wasn't worth it but I was in daily schedule mode and when I went to pick them up they were the only ones who even went to school. And then... as the day goes on my house kept getting colder and colder and I just thought it was becaus it was soooooooo cold outside that I didn't realize my furnace was broken until late last night and needless to say I am sitting in a home that is 50 least its not as cold as it is outside!

Cute as a Button

This is my little 4 year old. She is so easy to photograph...but she is getting to the point now that I have to do some bribing to make it happen. I'm always telling her (all my children) to stop growing up. This is the thing I love watching my children grow but I don't want them to grow up...if this makes any sense. This is probably why I love photography so much I get to freeze time for a moment and I can always remeber it.

These are a few of the funny things she says:

"Dad said, I can have a 100 birthdays" and so everything is about having her 100th birthday. Oh, and she has magic eyes. She asks me "Did you see my magic eyes?" I think when she is stairing at something and her eyes go out of focus...I think that's "Magic Eyes"

I love everything about being a mom the 24/7...never ending...wish I could have a break...this is for eternity...All of it.

So, I ordered these shoes from the Gap (they were only $10) and they came today. So, what is a girl to do? Have an inpromptu photo shoot. Plus, little "I" is turning 2 in February so it was the perfect timing to take his photos.

Late Night Post

I had to...look at this beautiful girl. Stef and I found a new location that I have been checking out for awhile but just haven't done it yet. I actually didn't get the shots I had invisioned the light was in the wrong place but that day will come and I hope this abandoned house will still be there.

Thanks for looking

... just a little chocolate conversion I had to try.

Here are a few for you Michelle. Little "A" was a run for my money but little "R" was as sweat as can be. I love this very first one. Just shows how much a mom loves her baby.

Little "A" running around my backdrop
While he was running around my backdrop he discovered some books that needed to be read.
Here he is again avoiding me at all costs
Oh...I got him looking at me

Calling all Seniors

I am looking for a few models/Seniors for my 2008 High School Reps (a junior this year)

I would like to do it in an Urban setting (ie: an abandoned house or in the old parts of town or maybe a large field). We could look forward to this sometime at the end of March or April depending on the weather. You will recieve a free session with Photography By Jess and a 11x14 of your choosing. If you are interested or know someone who is a willing participant email me.

Future Model

"I" loved getting her picture taken. She was seriously modeling it. She didn't even want to stop and just kept coming up with ideas. Here area few to share.


Just some family photos here. I was going thru some of my old stuff and came across this photo. He is 17 months here and loves to play soccer. He knows how to dribble, pass and shoot the ball. He is all boy. He loves anything boy. I'll have to post some pictures later of him helping us remodel the home. It will be tough when we are done and he can't hammer the floor anymore.
