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. 

Summers in DC can be sweltering and this session was no exception. How Ted and Lauren remained flawless through mosquitoes and 90% humidity I will never know. They are amazing! And little Gwendolyn was a sweet as can be. We met early in hopes to beat some of the heat which helped immensely. The Basilica […]

A Summer Family Session in DC | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I’ve had several clients reach out to ask if it is too late to schedule a newborn session if their child is already a month or two old. You absolutely still can schedule a session! Also this is such a sweet age to capture. The baby is responding with smiles and interacting. Let’s not forget […]

6 Month Baby Portraits | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Early morning in my favorite time to photograph at the Supreme Court. It’s so quiet except for morning runners and the occasional person walking their dog. It also has a lovely cherry tree that blooms and this year it really showed off. I have four older sisters and it always feels special photographing sister bonds. […]

A Spring Sister Photo Session at the Supreme Court | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I was so excited for this session. One, because I have known Kalee for years and two, it’s so fun getting a new location to photograph. We met at Caledonia State Park and walked through the woods to a peaceful spot. The little girls were darling. I love when parents are up for anything and […]

A Woodland Family Session | Chambersburg, PA Photographer

This was my last session for this little girl’s baby collection. I took their maternity, newborn and now 1st year photos. It is so fun watching the babies grow and seeing how their personalities start to shine. We took the photos in front of their home. It was such a lovely spring day and we […]

Baby’s Girls First Birthday | Washington, DC Family Photographer

Little Jude is turning one and this is such a fun age to capture. They are on the move at this age so that can be challenging but there is so many little things to photograph. They can stand by themselves, they have new teeth and their little personalities are developing. I also realized this […]

One Year Portrait Session | Supreme Court, DC

Miss Hadley turned two a few weeks ago and I can hardly believe it! It doesn’t feel like that long ago I was taking her 6 month photos. We started her session in the snow but she didn’t last too long. So we took a few more photos of just her Mama and baby bump […]

Hadley Turns Two -Washington, DC Family Photographer

If I could photograph all mothers in just back and white images, I would. By removing color, it allows you to focus on what really matters: the bond between you and your baby. It somehow quiets an image. It removes distractions from the background. Back and white format is where photography started and will remain […]

Motherhood in Black and White

Honestly, it feels just like it was yesterday when I was taking the Joss family newborn photos. Time flies and it have been such a joy seeing all the families during the fall, busy season of my business. The children have been delightful and there has been a strong feeling of family gratefulness that has […]

A Relaxed Fall Photo Session at the Basilica, DC

I have been making a list of some of our favorite books to read with children at Christmas time. I love when parents do a “book-advent-calendar” with their children. Or you can save the special books each year and tuck them into a basket in your family room. Maybe place a cozy blanket next to […]
