welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

This was the first Motherhood session I did this year. I’m reminded each time I offer these before Mother’s Day just how special they are. Too many times mothers take the family photos and don’t get photographed themselves with their children. I met Anjali on a warm spring evening at the Basilica. She played with […]

A Spring Mother and Daughter Session |Washington, DC Family Photographer

This family session at Staton Park was so fun. The cherry trees were in full bloom and the afternoon couldn’t have been more perfect with the warm weather and sunshine. I get asked from almost every other client if pets are allowed to come to photo sessions. I secretly love when they do! Typically dogs […]

A Spring Family Session at Staton Park, DC

I adore photographing newborns, but photographing best friend’s babies…it makes me almost cry. I was so honored when Krista asked if I could photograph sweet Eliana.

Welcoming Eliana -A Sunny Newborn Session at Home

I’ve photographed this sweet family for years now. This was a first I photographed in their home and it was lovey. Candace wanted to have photos taken throughout their home in the sentimental spots. The staircase, in the nursery and on the nursing chair. I love these moments where they spend the most time as […]

A Comfortable Family session at Home |Washington, DC Family Photographer

This Easter season felt so redemptive for me in many ways. We got to see my family for the first holiday in over a year. But the most exciting part was announcing our adoption process. Daniel and I dreamt of having a family for years and releasing that into the world made it feel “real” […]

Happy News

Every year I’m amazed all over again at the beauty of the magnolia blossoms in the Smithsonian gardens. Everyone loves the cherry blossoms but these may secretly be my favorite. I had several family sessions here this spring and it’s such a special place. I’m forever graceful that our city offers these gems and I […]

A Spring Family Session in Magnolia Blossoms |Washington, DC

When my friend Liz reached out to me about a session with her newest puppy, I was so excited! We chose Union Station because it’s close to her house and offers such pretty architecture. Simon and Peaches were amazing and we all ended up having such a great time together. There may have been dozens […]

The past two years I dove deep into understanding SEO. It felt so intimidating and overwhelming to me, yet I knew I needed to know more to further grow my business. What even is SEO? SEO is how your future clients find you on Google. I am a Washington, DC Newborn Photographer and so when […]

Business Tips for SEO |Mentor Sessions

How I love maternity sessions in the spring. And March gifted us with a warm day and lovely sunshine. Diana wore pink and the most beautiful dress with movement. Little Owen is going to be the best big brother. We explored the grounds of the Franciscan Monastery together while Owen and I looked for rocks. […]

A Pink Maternity Session in the Spring |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

This little family was full of personality and movement. We met on a rather chilly day at Lincoln Park but the children did wonderful and hardly mentioned the cold. The boys had fun with jumping contests and the twin girls were full smiles and energy. Enjoy their winter session on Capitol Hill.
