welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.

Hadley turned one and she couldn’t have been any cuter! Her Mama went all out with a pink tutu, “birthday girl” T-shirt, and “one” balloon. We met at the Library of Congress on a surprisingly mild day for February. She hammed it up for the camera and was just adorable. I love all the different […]

Hadley Turns One -DC Family Photographer

This family is so dear to me. I have known them for over 5 years now. They care so much about their community and are always willing to get involved and support whenever they can. Family is everything to them. They are down-to-earth, you can call them anytime during an emergency and also haul from […]

The Reina Family -a winter family session at the Arboretum

It’s always such an honor when a friends asks me to photograph their family. (and drives two hours to come to DC to make it happen!) Margaret has been a dear friend of mine for years so we got the chance to catch up a bit during their session. It had rained the entire day […]

The Agha Family |Library of Congress, DC

This family! We had such a great time together at the Library of Congress. I think you can guess by now, this happens to be one of my favorite locations to photograph in all of DC. All the clean lines, white backgrounds and French architecture….I love it all! The children definitely have a close bond […]

The Ahmad Family |Library of Congress, DC

These little girls were just the sweetest! They were so well behaved even with the colder weather. As you can see, all smiles! Their parents were so calm and relaxed, which also help the children to enjoy the session too. Children follow the lead of their parents every time. We walked around the Senate building […]

The Medema Family |Senate Building, DC

I met the Vuong family bright and early Christmas Eve for their wintery session in City Center. I thought it was a pretty mild day but then met the family and found out some of them had just flown in from California. But they all did so well and we had such a great time […]

A Christmas Family Session in City Center, DC

My sister Deanna visited me over Christmas and it happened to be a gorgeous day. DC typically isn’t that warm in December. We drove to Catholic University-right around the corner from our house-and took their family photos. Deanna loves green so the pine trees and architecture made the perfect background. The children did so well. […]

The Martin Family |Catholic University, DC

I met the Cannon family at the Capitol on a warm, fall afternoon. Honestly, I don’t know if I have ever met such well-behaved children. They were so fun to photograph! The sun was filtering through the trees just perfectly, and when the mother pulled out an old quilt for them to sit on, I […]

The Cannon Family |United States Capitol, DC

This family was simply wonderful! The Father reached out to me and said his full family would be in town and wanted photos of everyone together. These are some of my favorite sessions to capture. The littlest man stole the show and had fun aunts, uncles and grandparents to dote on him. It was the […]

The Conrado Family |DC Family Photographer

It was pouring down rain the morning I met the Subramanian family for their session. So thankful we picked the Library of Congress to photograph at because you can photograph inside and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The tall pillars and white marble are beautiful and it has great natural light. The children had fun playing and […]
