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.

Suddenly your day is full of feedings and snuggles but you still have the other every day tasks still to do. It was several weeks until I tried wrapping Robert […]

The Benefits of Baby Wearing | Washington DC Newborn Photographer
