1st...love the snow pics with the baby. too cute! random thing: stumbled onto seth godin's blog...yesterday's entry was too awesome for words! 1.23.10, 4:23PM
Last night I sat in a restaurant with a good friend and we thought about the live and how something has to be and a lot of good things.... We thought about a person we met when we were at jobschool and after half an hour the person was standing in front of us!! - Ok - I get home sleeping and I dreamt - not a nightmare - I was in holiday with an other friend somewhere at a cool place. We looked out of the balcony and I saw you and Jeff sitting at the swimming pool.... I said: Wow, there is Jessica Claire I have to met her - I must met her - It must be that we meet each other!!!! I was so amazed that I have been so close to you because in real live I'm thousand miles away.... The only nightmare of this dream was, that I just after I saw you from the balcony I woke up.... Happy weekend - Greetings from Switzerland 1.23.10, 2:54AM
sakids - a timeless: loved the shot of jeff's dad reading to the kids. a timeless image that will mean more to those in the image as time passes. 1.22.10, 7:29PM
Random happening...I walked into my 19 month old's room to get her up from her nap today. Her diaper was in the middle of the floor and she was curled up, naked as a jay bird, just snoozing away. It was just too cute. 1.22.10, 5:57PM
Love of the Nativity Story Photo. Good work Jessica! 1.22.10, 4:28PM
First off, let me say that I ABSOLUTELY adore your work. And I am a blog stalker. :D To your love for s'mores, per one of the reviews on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate : Sugar Rush", a Los Angeles restaurant, Luna Park is said to have AWESOME s'mores. Home made graham crackers and super yummy chocolate. Here's their info if you're interested. You can also find it on Food Network's site. S'Mores - Luna Park

This week we landed on an awesome wedding site. It's random because things we're working out so well prior. And the site... Viceroy Anguilla! Thought you might like that tidbit because I know you love the Palm Springs Viceroy! 1.22.10, 12:10PM
Orlando Boudoir Photographer:
Wow I love the pictures. My favorite is the pic where Jeff's dad is reading a Christmas story to the kids - amazing.

My Random Occurance: I found our leftover meatloaf in a container in the Tupperware cabinet this morning. Maybe my husband didn't like it???!!! 1.22.10, 11:04AM
I think you should read "Vision in White" by Nora Roberts. It's about a wedding photographer who works with 3 of her best friends. (Ones a florist, ones a cake designer, ones a wedding planner) You are going to love this book, I sure did! Being a wedding photographer I was able to relate to so much. Check it out & tell us what you think! 1.22.10, 11:03AM
Becka @Studio222 Photography:

Big Bear is where I grew up...I miss it sometimes, but not when they get 4 feet of snow =) Great pics! 1.22.10, 8:16AM
My random thing: My 10 week old son gave me the biggest smile yesterday morning it melted my heart! 1.22.10, 8:15AM
I've been doing "Thursday Thoughts" on my blog for years! 1.22.10, 7:43AM

Inland Empire Wedding Photographer:
I saw Jasmine Star on the B school, they talked about the PDN list at the beginning and then torwads the end of the show, you could see the feed with so many people saying lovely things to them, it made me realize that all that matters it that they know they just doing their best to help out the photo community. & as long as they and we keep that in mind, thats all that matters. 1.22.10, 12:25AM
I am so glad that you started this feature to your blog!
This week I cooked cowboy calzones from the Pioneer Women cookbook. This was a big deal because I just started cooking, and making calzones from scratch was totally out of my comfort zone. You should check out her cookbook, you might like it! 1.21.10, 11:29PM
allie: I like others who have commented today have been a silent follower (or some might say stalker!) of your blog for many months now - and I just love it! You are an amazing photographer :) Love the idea of a random Thursday post. My randomness of the week: I finally started researching SLR cameras with hope of understanding them enough to buy one! 1.21.10, 9:50PM
Ok, so I did know this was coming for a while, but it's very much a one off thing - my sister had twins on Friday!! Shame she lives half way across the country & I can't take their pics til Easter :( 1.21.10, 9:05PM
robin: since you love s'mores so much, have you ever tried indoor smores made with golden grahams? made a batch tonight & THEY ARE SOOOOOO GOOD. super tasty & super easy to make. here's the recipe: http://tinyurl.com/yfkogrr 1.21.10, 8:48PM
I have to include a link to my page because I have a photo of a baby in the same jacket as Maya, and she's also in the snow and not too happy about it :)
Try smores with different candy bars. Ny favorite are resees peanut butter cups. 1.21.10, 7:47PM
On a random note- I am a beginner photographer and I don't have much but I try to remind myself everyday to be thankful for what I do have and for the talent God has given me. Today, my Uncle gave me a 23" Apple iMac and I am just overwhelmed with joy for this incredible generosity. I've never had anyone be so giving "just because". This is a huge thing for me and I know it will help my business :) I know it may not sound huge to a lot of people but I am just so thankful. Happy 2010 everyone!!! God Bless you and may your year be filled with many great experiences :) 1.21.10, 7:41PM
Made pancakes for dinner for my two boys, three and five. Was hero. Brilliant parenting tip--make pancakes for dinner when you are too tired to nag your children about eating dinner! 1.21.10, 7:31PM
I went puddle jumping at Disneyland on Tuesday. My sisters and I went during a break in the rain. There were approx. 22 people total in the park which was heaven, then we got caught in a down pour and made the best of it by jumping in puddles on main street. Doesn't get better than that. PS...I stalk your blog and LOVE IT I love the idea of Thursday thoughts. 1.21.10, 6:59PM
i have been a silent follower of your blog for quite a while now... :)
your "thursday thoughts" is a cute idea...your entry led me to a thought...how much more meaningful would your thursdays be if you did a random act of kindness/love for a loved one or stranger every thursday?... :) 1.21.10, 6:17PM
AmyPunky Photography (Emilie):
hey this is fun! one random nice thing that happened to me this week: i was asked to shoot an engagement/proposal session in Paris for an american couple! can't wait to do it! :) 1.21.10, 5:49PM
I got a Brazilion blowout last night (that kinda sounds dirty but it's just a hair treatment to straighten). LOVE it! Oh ya, I blogged about your awesome wedding video too. Amazing! 1.21.10, 5:45PM
Screw the nay Sayers Jessica -buncha grumps!
Anyway. I am loving the rain the week.... Call me crazy. 1.21.10, 5:44PM
As a fellow Wolfpacker you should be pleased to know that they beat Duke last night. That and Carolina losing on the same night made my day. Holla!! 1.21.10, 5:38PM
"-I'm annoyed at all the drama over the PDN "Influential" list. I do not think I deserve to be on it, but I am sad about all the nastiness it seemed to bring forward " . It sucks that people are so nasty. I am guessing it is because they are not on the list. But YOU are influential to us wedding photogs! 1.21.10, 5:37PM
Just sold my house...and found a new fixer upper all within a week... 1.21.10, 5:30PM
Renee: Something that happened to me this week: I got cut off in line by a little old lady at the coffee shop and 3 days later, the workers are still laughing about it! As for a suggestion on what to chat about: (of course not origional) but how about stating 3 good things that happened to you that week? For expample: "I broke in my purple clogs?" -bonus points if you know what movie that is from! :) 1.21.10, 5:28PM
I found a Frito in my bra this morning. 1.21.10, 5:24PM
joyful weddings and events:
It was great to see you last night! Speaking of random events from the week, on my way home from the party, I drove right into the end of a police chase. Like I had to pull over because over 50 policemen were standing in the intersection with their guns pointing at the car that just stopped. fun. 1.21.10, 5:16PM
words with friends rocks! ;)
you had me at pink polka dots!!! so excited for that!
as for something you should try... http://tinyurl.com/ykv4ybq (but only if you eat chicken and mushrooms! great for a get together!) 1.21.10, 5:14PM
AH!! Now I see why you want snow... what a gorgeous place.
Super funny pic of Jeff in the Princess tent... bah haha.
And PDN drama... yeah. Really brought out the nasty people. I still think you deserved to be on there. Clearly you have influenced many people.
And, Congrats on launching what I'm sure will be another successful cover. I adore mine (can't remember what it's called). Red blossoms on some branches. 1.21.10, 5:13PM
I LOVED this! It reminded me of our lil winter vacation. We had a similar just in case your bored outta your mind, you can see it here! situation...http://dluphotography.com/personal/the-last-of-our-trip
Thursday Thoughts are awesome! My thought today was as follows: Check Jessica Claire blog for updates, Eat, and try not to poison my husband with my cooking tonight. =) 1.21.10, 5:05PM
Katie Neal Photo:
What the hell? The PDN list was RIGHT ON! I recognized every name on that list and could name what they did to make photography the way it is today. Any nastiness is just jealousy. Boo hissy loser haters! :) 1.21.10, 5:05PM
Your hubby is hilarious in that princess tent. Priceless!
If you ask me, you deserve to be on the list...and I agree that the nastiness is annoying. It is sad that some people need to be nasty! :( 1.21.10, 5:04PM
julie: i like to read personal posts! and sorry for the haters....there will always be some! 1.21.10, 5:02PM
This makes me smile! Thank you... 1.21.10, 5:00PM
I slept in my car waiting for IKEA to open to get new furniture for my client meeting area. :P 1.21.10, 4:57PM
Yay :) Very excited for Thursday Thoughts!! And loving this post - you and Jeff seem so happy :) so cute! LOVE that photo with the kids being read to - it makes my heart warm. 1.21.10, 4:56PM
