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 was thinking back on the past year and some of the lessons I’ve learned. There were so many good things that happened this year but to be honest. It was HARD. The pandemic affected every aspect of our lives. Regulations were changing weekly and it felt like we were in a state of fluidity […]

Summer Tomato Salad Recipe

I met Tahiris at the Basilica for a her headshot session. She wanted several different poses for LinkedIn and social media.
