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’m starting to love family sessions at sunrise. Especially when they are at the Lincoln. This was the sweetest family and so much fun. Johnathan went along with whatever his mother wanted-he was so close with his parents. His dad -also Johnathan-could make him laugh anytime he was feeling tired or bored of photos. Enjoy […]

A Family Session at the Lincoln Memorial | Washington, DC Family Photographer

It’s so fun photographing families again each year to see how big the children have grown. I love seeing children turn from newborns into toddlers, toddlers into teens…it’s such a delight watching them develop. And at each session when I get to photograph a repeat client, it’s the greatest honor. Knowing they entrust me to […]

A Summer Evening Family Session at the Basilica

This session felt so special. It was the first time the grandparents met their granddaughter. They wanted to capture the time they were to together as a family. We started out with a few portraits inside their home and then walked across the street to the local park. It was beautiful weather and the most […]

An Extended Family Session at Staton, Park DC

This time of year is absolutely wonderful! This was my fourth session of the day and it went so smooth. I adore when parents are relaxed -it gives a peaceful feel and the children follow their lead. The sun was setting as we started their session in the gardens. Sometimes you need to let a […]

A Fall Family Session at the Botanical Gardens |Washington, DC Family Photographer

There is something about the light in the fall months. It turns soft and warm, almost like a glow. Early morning 8-9 and afternoon 2-3 are my favorite times to capture my client during the autumn. I met this little family at the Basilica and we had such a fun time together. Little Asher was […]

A Fall Family Session | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I met this sweet family early morning at the Supreme Court. The light is so pretty that time of day. When Emily walked around the corner in her beautiful mustard dress I was thrilled. It matched perfectly with the fall tones and the little girls’ checkered dresses. We stared out in the side garden and […]

A Fall Family Session at the Supreme Court | Washington, DC Family Photographer

This session was so full of love…I can hardly describe it. Little Andre’ is loved beyond measure. His parents snuggled him and laughed and sang…it was beautiful. We met at a friend’s home and took them all in the backyard. Sometimes the most simply location ends up being incredibly. The light shone through the trees […]

A Whimsical Summer Family Session |Washington, DC Family Photographer

The Brandt family has been dear friends of ours ever since we moved to DC. They have been such an encouragement to us during our adoption journey. They are so invested in their community and the church abroad. Caleb is a senior this year and Timothy isn’t far behind. Somehow time continues to fly. We […]

A Summer Afternoon Family Session |Washington, DC Family Photographer

It’s always such a delight when I get to photograph family. This was a very last minute session and sometimes they are the best. You don’t have to stress over little details and use what you have. My sister-in-law made my niece’s dress. Isn’t it adorable? The children did so well and they just played […]

A Relaxed Summer Family Session |Washington, DC Family Photographer

When I look at this family’s images I think “joy in chaos”. Their hands are full in the best way possible and they are filled with such sweet joy. Little William is at the age that getting your photos taken isn’t much fun but he added a fun element to the session with all his […]
