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. 

Every baby is special but when friends have babies…it’s doubly as sweet. I remember the first time I met Whitney. She and a friend came into Union Market to get ice cream. Then one day, she invited Daniel and I to her Christmas dinner. We now live a few blocks from each other, borrow camera […]

Welcoming Thatcher | Outdoor Newborn Session in DC

Anytime little girls, monograms and Grandparents are involved in a family session, I get excited. And little Cora’s session had all three! This session was so casual and full of everyday moments. She got lots of snuggles with Mother, watered flowers with Grandpa and picked blossoms with Grandma. Her Grandparents were leaving for France in […]

A Summer Photo Session with Grandparents

Rhonda has been a dear friend of mine for years. When she asked me to photograph her flower garden -The Blossoms- with her little girls, I was delighted! She made each one a flower crown and they had the prettiest blush skirts. Watching the three sisters together made me sentimental for my four sisters. They […]

A Summer, Whimsical Flower Session

I met the Wadel family at Norlo Park in Chambersburg when I was visiting my family in Pennsylvania. It was the perfect sunny evening. The light filters through a willow tree just perfectly. Willow and Crepe Myrtle trees are my favorite to photograph. They add dimension but also allow the light to fall through them […]

Gigi has amazing design skills and the nursery was bright, white and simple a photographers dream to shoot in. Her attention to detail makes all the difference. Amanda was turning four the […]

The Krasna Family | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I met Sarah and her girls on a warm, summer evening at the National Cathedral. We walked through the Bishop’s Garden and it was simply delightful. The girlies looked at flowers and even got to chase a bunny. I loved how casual it felt and how much fun the girls had even while taking photos. […]

Mother and Daughter Session at the National Cathedral |Washington, DC

I’m sharing SO many images from this session because I simply could not decide which ones to choose. I met the Lee family early at the Library of Congress due to the heat. DC has been incredibly hot this summer! This family is everything I dream of in a client. They are comfortable and happy, […]

The Lee Family | Summer Family Session in DC

I have several close friends who are expecting babies and two sister-in-laws, so I was making a list of baby gift ideas. I thought you all might want to see some of them as well. I fall for cute clothes every time but I also love buying gifts they can use later too. At the […]

Gift Ideas for a Baby Shower

Another lovely front yard session for you! This family was darling. Both little girls were waiting for me at the front door. They posed perfectly and were just so fun and relaxed. I adore when fathers get excited about photos and join in on the fun. The girls were thrilled when he twirled them around […]
