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 adore everything about this session! My clients chose a local park that they would frequent and it had sweet memories to them. We walked around the park and then crossed the street to a lovely home on the corner. It was such a relaxed session and everyone had a wonderful time. Ariel was lovely […]

A Casual, Fall Family Session at Logan Circle, DC

I’ve been photographing this sweet family for several years now. It’s crazy how time flies so fast and I’m honored to capture it for so many families here in DC. Little Clair wasn’t happy about standing for photos at first, she wanted to ride her scooter instead. But we gave her some time and she […]

The Wise Family |U.S. Senate Building, DC

Friends are such a joy to photograph! It was a surprisingly warm, winter evening when I met Whitney and her family at the Kennedy Center. Whitney is also a photographer and this is one of her favorite locations to take her clients to and now I know why. You have wonderful light with all the […]

A Sunny Family Session at the Kennedy Center, DC

This sweet little session was so fun! We started out with photos in front of the house but the front porch swing was my favorite spot. Their little man was so happy and easy-going. He even wore his Daddy’s Christmas outfit when he was a baby. I do love a family heirloom added to a […]

A Front Porch Family Session in Bethesda, MD

It’s always the best thing when you meet a new client through a friend. It was a late afternoon and we started the session at the Supreme Court. Because hardly a soul was out we decided to walk around and get them several classic locations. We walked across the street to the Capitol and finished […]

A Classic, DC Family Session at the Library of Congress

I’ve known Jenny and her family for several years now, ever since her children were itty bitty. This year she wanted a location that was festive and cheery, City Center was the perfect spot. The streets are lined with hanging lights and snowflakes, it’s one of my favorite spots to walk to during the holidays. […]

A Festive Family Session at City Center, DC

I’m so excited for this little family! They are expecting their second baby next year and I can’t wait to watch Hadley become a big sister. I also love that Whitney brings grandparents to each of her sessions. I know they will never regret the time they take for these precious photos and memories.

The Sheppard Family |National Cathedral, DC

Honestly, it feels just like it was yesterday when I was taking the Joss family newborn photos. Time flies and it have been such a joy seeing all the families during the fall, busy season of my business. The children have been delightful and there has been a strong feeling of family gratefulness that has […]

A Relaxed Fall Photo Session at the Basilica, DC

When Angela reached out to me about a family session I know we were in for a delightful time. They recently moved to DC and were excited about getting a few iconic locations in their images. We couldn’t decide between the Lincoln Memorial or the Capitol, so we went to both. Their boys were wonderful […]

A Classic DC Family Photo Session | Lincoln Memorial

I adore the Layne family. Calandra has amazing style and they are just the sweetest kiddos! The opted to take the session at their home and it made everything feel so fun and relaxed. Their back porch had a wonderful background of color because they live next to a wooded area. The boys were so […]
