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. 

As I was pondering my lift this morning I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I have family, friends and neighbors who pour into my life everyday. I own a business I love and am supported by a wonderful church family. There are aspects of life I wish were different but they pale in comparison to the […]

Celebrating 36 years today.

Time… It’s too fast. I’m 35 and we still haven’t started a family. Each birthday is a blessing but a reminder that we are a year older. Another year without YOU. It’s too slow. WE files another piece of paperwork and still wait. I told my friends I wanted to capture what a “paper pregnancy” […]

Time and Our Adoption Journey

A dear client sent me this photo from her session and it made me sob. The wait for our adoption has felt endless this week. To be honest, having no timeframe for a person who loves to plan feels grueling. But when I saw this moment captured it affirmed to me that my job matters. […]

When I Forget my “Why”

I have always been fascinated by families. Where you grew up and with who forms and shapes us in so many different dynamics. It’s beautiful really, that the humans around us make us into who we are as adults. I grew up surrounded by sisters living on a dairy farm. We would disappear for hours […]

A Family Wedding | Personal Post

We rarely think about it as an adult…but when last have you taken the time to play? I assume in my daily tasks that play is reserved for children, but I truly think we adults could use a good dose of it ourselves. It doesn’t need to be fancy or cost a lot, it can […]

A Spring Picnic -finding time for rest and play

Yesterday my twin sister and I were talking about Mother’s Day.  I struggle with infertility. She struggles with secondary infertility. We could say many things but the most important thing we long to tell every woman who is walking our journey… There is HOPE. You may not feel it now. You may be in the […]

Encouragement for your Infertility

Visiting Jackson Hole has been on my bucket list for the past ten years. I don’t enjoy terribly cold weather and I love being around lots of people (one reason I adore living in the city). My childhood friend-Ariel-moved here 15 years ago after we trekked across the US on a roadtrip together. I remember […]

A Visit to Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Each fall I welcome the cool air. The smell of drying leaves and the color it brings to the world. But I have found that a many people can’t enjoy fall, knowing that winter is just around the corner. I made it a tradition in my life to embrace fall so I can welcome winter. […]

Welcoming Winter

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 […]

Peace Lilly’s and Pandemics

There were a few habits I picked up during lockdown that I knew needed to change. I function-like most people-the best on a routine. Here are a few areas I have worked on changing recently. The time I wake up. This impacts my entire day. If I wake up between 5:30-6:30 I can take the […]
