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. 

Meet baby Terrington. He was such an incredibly calm baby. We took most of his portraits in the living room beaus they had a small space and that was the room with the most light. It’s amazing what you can do when you have a lot of natural light. Then we moved outside and took […]

And sometimes you will be surprised at […]
