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 was so excited when Natalie reached out about taking Mother’s Day photos. Their home is a lovely farmhouse with a full porch so we had the entire session outside. We started on the porch and then kicked off our shoes for a few photos running in the grass barefoot. The children are at such […]

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 […]
