Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.
Babies are still being born. Memories are still being made. And families are still choosing to document this time in their lives. But…as photographers we are having to work extra hard to make that happen, and we are honored to do so. Many families are opting to take their photos outside as extra precautions but it’s tricky finding locations to take them. We need them to be beautiful, accessible, and open during this time. Here are a few of my favorite locations to to take family photos at here in DC.
National Gallery of Art -this building has so many lovely outdoor options. White pillars in front and pretty, small gardens on the side with magnolia bushes and benches to sit on.
The Smithsonian -beautiful architecture, gardens (yes, even in the winter), arches and lovely ironwork
The Basilica -one of my favorite locations in dc! It offers a winding staircase, trees, benches, and clean white walls-the perfect simple backdrop
National Arboretum -this is one location that does require permits but is so pretty! Wonderful gardens to walk around, and my favorite spot in the entire place is the old Capitol pillars on the hill.
Union Market -this location offers so many fun, bright walls to photograph at. Alleyways, strung lights and you can even grab a coffee afterwards.
Eastern Market -this spot gives you that city vibe. The cute shops and sidewalks are beautiful next to all the historic homes on the Hill. It even had the most adorable book store that gives you a cozy vibe.
I hope this list gives you some fun options as you plan your winter family, maternity, or newborn sessions here in the DMV.
