    Pink is Sweet, but Jessica is Oh-so-Spicy

    You're not gonna believe this: She's got 3 kids! If you kinda believed that, then you're for sure not gonna believe this one: Her oldest is 17!!!
    I know! I just about fell over when I heard that one too!

    Jessica brought her toddler son with her to the session. What was really funny was that he was all in the mix the whole time: Some shots had him sitting just on the edge of the set. There were even times that I had him just below the camera and I had to quickly snap the picture before he jumped into the frame! Boy oh boy, what an adventure that was!

    Here's some of the crazy action that took place on set (hilarious!):

    Photo #1: Deeeelicious!

    We used this Marilyn Monroe image for inspiration for the following:

    Photo #2

    Photo #3: Showin' a little sweet Glam Love for ya!

    Why Jessica is the bomb-diggity: After her session, she donated some of her fabulous accessories to us so that we can use them for future shoots. Isn't she the sweetest!?

    MAC makeup and Tavia Jenkins (hair) can be thanked for styling Jessica. (Tavia: 916-451-4600)
