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. 

I’m starting to love family sessions at sunrise. Especially when they are at the Lincoln. This was the sweetest family and so much fun. Johnathan went along with whatever his mother wanted-he was so close with his parents. His dad -also Johnathan-could make him laugh anytime he was feeling tired or bored of photos. Enjoy […]

Editing and other Programs I love | Washington, DC Photographer

It’s so fun photographing families again each year to see how big the children have grown. I love seeing children turn from newborns into toddlers, toddlers into teens…it’s such a delight watching them develop. And at each session when I get to photograph a repeat client, it’s the greatest honor. Knowing they entrust me to […]

A Summer Evening Family Session at the Basilica

This session felt so special. It was the first time the grandparents met their granddaughter. They wanted to capture the time they were to together as a family. We started out with a few portraits inside their home and then walked across the street to the local park. It was beautiful weather and the most […]

An Extended Family Session at Staton, Park DC

This time of year is absolutely wonderful! This was my fourth session of the day and it went so smooth. I adore when parents are relaxed -it gives a peaceful feel and the children follow their lead. The sun was setting as we started their session in the gardens. Sometimes you need to let a […]

A Fall Family Session at the Botanical Gardens |Washington, DC Family Photographer

There is something about the light in the fall months. It turns soft and warm, almost like a glow. Early morning 8-9 and afternoon 2-3 are my favorite times to capture my client during the autumn. I met this little family at the Basilica and we had such a fun time together. Little Asher was […]

A Fall Family Session | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I had the privilege of hosting a photographer’s meet-up with two of my friends last Sunday evening. While there are many events for wedding photographers in our area there isn’t many options for us family and newborn photographers. I’m not sure where I read this quote but it said something like; “if you see a […]

A Photographers’ Meet-up

I met this sweet family early morning at the Supreme Court. The light is so pretty that time of day. When Emily walked around the corner in her beautiful mustard dress I was thrilled. It matched perfectly with the fall tones and the little girls’ checkered dresses. We stared out in the side garden and […]

A Fall Family Session at the Supreme Court | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I have never been to the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise but oh my….it’s stunning! As the sun rose over the Reflecting Pool, it felt magical. Katie and Pat were amazing -even when it took them a bit to find parking. We spent half our time by the water and then walked up to get a […]

A Sunrise Maternity Session at the Lincoln Memorial |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

You learn. I know this is very obvious but it’s true! You can learn so much from others in your industry. I recently took BreAnne’s photography course and it helped me so much with my posing. I’ve been photographing family and newborns for 10 years now and can always learn something new. It’s exciting! You […]
