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. 

Nick and Nadia were stunning together during their maternity session. And the fact that they did it in 100 degree weather is a true test of their character. They were so fun and relaxed. We did it at their home in the outdoor gardens. I know they are going to be incredible parents. This session […]

A Summer Outdoor Maternity Session

How I love maternity sessions in the spring. And March gifted us with a warm day and lovely sunshine. Diana wore pink and the most beautiful dress with movement. Little Owen is going to be the best big brother. We explored the grounds of the Franciscan Monastery together while Owen and I looked for rocks. […]

A Pink Maternity Session in the Spring |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

This session was a dream. When you have a beautiful mother and a snow storm, you can create some breathtaking images. Also, the snow was a wonderful distraction for the sweet toddler that woke up from his nap. I adore when clients are up for some adventure! We did this entire session in 30 minutes […]

A Maternity Session in the Snow | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

With all the new babies coming this year, I’ve had so many mothers reach out to me wondering when to book their maternity session. Three things for you to keep in mind: One, is your bump showing yet? You don’t want to schedule a maternity session and not be able to see your bump. Two, […]

The Best Time to Schedule Your Maternity Session

I adore photographing couples who are waiting for their first baby to arrive. It’s just so special. Every thing is new and uncharted. They hold on to each other in the beautiful unknowns and the countless “firsts.” These two were no exception. I could sense the anticipation in the first email Annemarie sent me. They […]

A Winter Maternity Session at Union Station

This was such an incredible session! It was such a mild day for December, and I was so grateful. We first started at the Library of Congress-my favorite location in all of DC-and then walked across the street to the Supreme Court. I love all the white and green tones of the buildings and Pallavi […]

A Classic Maternity Session at the Library of Congress

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning for their maternity session. We met early to beat the heat and there is always less people in DC the earlier you go out. Both of us were excited we got this session in after the quarantine haircut but before the baby arrives. 🙂 We started […]

Maternity Dresses for Photo Sessions

When Lauren reached out to me about photos for announcing their pregnancy, I was thrilled! I drove to their home in Arlington and we had such a lovely time. They were so welcoming and relaxed, the best part about in-home sessions. I can’t wait to see them become parents! This little one is incredibly blessed […]

Honestly, this session was so fun and easy. They were the sweetest couple and just look at that beautiful golden! We walked around the basilica and casually talked in between snapping portraits. They are going to be the best parents and their excited was evident. Congratulations, you guys! I wish you and your family the […]
