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. 

These are a few images from a family session in Virginia. When you have multiple little ones there can be lots of energy during a session. I’m sure from the parents view it can feel chaotic but these are the moments that give you real emotion and interactions. This also shows the season your family […]

A Garden Maternity Session | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

This session was filled with all my favorite things. A darling baby, active toddlers and a beautiful garden.

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 […]

Parents put so much thought into the details of their nursery. I adore featuring these special rooms that you design to bring your little ones home to. The artwork to the books to the lamps. Each little piece plays a part and helps to tell your story. Miss Bee’s room was full of muted pinks […]
