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 have photographed this dear family for many years now. The boys are at such a fun stage where they play together and are up for any adventure. We met at the Botanical Gardens and then crossed the street for a beautiful view of the Capitol. I love how this location offers a green background […]

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

I follow Katie Lamb on Instagram and she recommended the book She Works His Way. I found it on eBay and started it that same day I got it in the mail. It was exactly what I was looking for as I start another new year of business. It is truly a gift to run […]

She Works His Way

It’s no secret that I love photographing at the Library of Congress. And when you add beautiful parents-to-be; it makes for a dreamy session. It had rained all morning and was just letting up when we started. Kate began their session wearing a long pink dress and then changed into a smokey blue for the […]

Winter Maternity Session at The Library of Congress |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

Meet Lane Walker, the newest nephew in my family. We all got to dote on him over Christmas weekend. There may have been arguing on who got to hold him next. My family simply adores babies and it’s been a few years since we had one. All the nieces, aunts, and Grandma crowed into the […]

Happy New Year 2022 | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Babies are the sweetest, but when it’s times two…how fun! These two were home only 2 days from the NICU before their session. They did so well and slept the entire time. Their big brother was so gentle with both of them…I know they have some fun times ahead.

A Lifestyle Newborn Twin Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Invest in yourself. Education is so important in moving forward in your business but it tends to be the last thing we think we should do due to price. When you start your business, it is hard to justify a large sum of money but I realized I was 10 years into my business with […]

Things I’ve learnt in My Photography Business This Year

I enjoy winter newborn sessions so much! It feels extra cozy with a newborn and for this session we even had Christmas lights. Little Charlotte was so relaxed and sleepy for her entire session. I loved the relaxed feel the parents wanted- a few images in their mater bedroom and then a few downstairs next […]

At-home Winter Newborn Session |Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

If there is one thing I try to capture during every session, it’s emotion. It’s the connection between family members that you can’t capture when you take a selfie. I adore the way this mother snuggled her little girl. It happened several times during their session. I loved watching the bond between the parents, when […]

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

Sweet little Eleanor couldn’t have been more perfect. She was such an easy baby and slept through her entire session. Her mother did so well with keeping colors bright and neutral. She reached out to me the night before asking if I could come over the next day. I was so happy my day was […]
