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.

A Garden Maternity Session | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

I met Courtney at a photography workshop we both attended. She was quiet and so gentle-always smiling. We slipped upstairs for some quiet and I had the privilege of taking a few maternity images for her. I love how simple these frames turned out. A beautiful mama, a sweet baby bump, and an old window.

A Maternity Session at Home | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

This session spoke such gentleness as I watched it unfold. This sweet mama is so incredibly kind with her two -almost three- little boys. We were juggling a stroller and two small children on the DC streets with lots of crowds and she maneuvered with incredible grace. Every time I have the privilege of photographing […]

The Art of Storytelling

The architecture is so detailed, the stone arch frames a family perfectly and the garden is lovely at any season. I met this sweet family on a sunny afternoon for their maternity session. They were […]

Why Book a Maternity Session? |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

There is something so beautifully tangible about photographing first time parents. They are nervous, excited and nostalgic about the wonderful change about to happen. It’s wonderful when client book their maternity and newborn sessions with me so we already know each other before baby arrives. It makes it a much for relaxing session for them […]

I have never been to the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise but oh my….it’s stunning! As the sun rose over the Reflecting Pool, it felt magical. Katie and Pat were amazing -even when it took them a bit to find parking. We spent half our time by the water and then walked up to get a […]
