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 can be hard to decide on what to wear for your maternity session. I always suggest starting with the mother’s outfit and then building from there for the other family members. Here are a few of my favorite plus size maternity dresses. They range from various styles and prices but all photograph beautifully. Christy […]

Maternity Session in DC | Bishop’s Garden, DC

This winter maternity session felt like a fairytale. My client chose a white gown with a fur wrap and it matched perfectly with the Jefferson Memorial.

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. My thoughts have felt like a jumbled puzzle and it took me until the last day to finally sit down and write out a few things I’ve learnt over the years and felt the last few months.

This maternity session at the Bon Air rose garden was so lovely. The soft-toned colors the mother chose in their outfits matched perfectly with the roses. This location is a hidden gem in Arlington. I took their holiday photos last November and it happened to be the very day they found out that baby girl […]
