welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.

A Fresh48 session is a session at the hospital within the first 48 hours of the baby being earth side. The moments that happen during this time are a blur and I get the honor of freezing them for you so you can always look back on them and remember the day you family grew. […]

How to Prepare for a Fresh48 Newborn Session

This session was incredible! The newborn slept and the toddlers snuggled while Grandparents fussed and got anything I needed. It was everything I love about newborn sessions. Alison kept the color scheme simple which allows the children and personalities shine through even more. The girls love their little brother and I couldn’t be more happy […]

Welcoming Joseph |Potomac, MD Newborn Photographer

I can’t say enough about sweet, little Elise. She surprised her parents by arriving 5 weeks early. She is the tiniest baby I have photographed in a very long time. My swaddle wrapped around her little body several times. She lets the world know when she’s hungry, has the biggest yawn, and has the best […]

Welcoming Elise -Silver Spring, MD Newborn Photographer

Little Lena is well protected with 3 older brothers. They were so sweet with her and I love seeing the dynamic when a girl joins a troop of small boys. They snuggled on the couch for a few family photos and then we finished with Lena’s portraits and detail images. This is why I love […]

His parents were great too. They had the nursery and master bedroom all ready for us. The morning is my favorite time to photograph newborns […]

Welcoming Arlo | An at-home Newborn Session in Petworth, DC

This session was so much fun. Both parents were incredibly relaxed and both boys did great. We had to chuckled at their personalities. While one slept the entire time, the other one hardly shut his eyes. It amazed me the difference you can see even when they are still so small. My own mother said […]

Calvin and Carter |Washington, DC Twin Photographer

Meet sweet, little Faye. I was so excited when her mother told me her name. It’s the name of my own mother and I so rarely hear it anymore. She was the most calm baby I have ever photographed. She wore her mother’s christening gown and it was intricately smocked with beautiful detail. Big sister […]

Zack and Ashleigh just welcomed their second baby girl into the world, and she is as perfect at they come! I met them on a warm fall morning at Green Spring Gardens. It’s a delightful spot with gardens, a pond and historic house. It’s a great option to walk around as a family especially when […]

The Duncan family welcomed their second boy into their hearts and home and we are thrilled for them. William Rogers is simply perfect. I love session where Grandparents can be part of the moments. Anna’s mother was there and we got to capture a few 3 generation photos. She pointed out the nursery door hanging…a […]
