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.
Hey everyone! It’s no secret I adore the fall season and let me just say…it’s an even more delightful while I’m pregnant. The summer heat took all my energy this year but I’ve felt a new surge as I entered my third trimester this September. Another favorite thing about the fall is all the holiday […]
Both of us holding our miracles. We’ve dreamt for years of being mothers together. So far our journeys to motherhood look vastly different than we imagined. Both have been harder and yet more beautiful. I’m grateful I get to follow her example and we can watch little cousins grow up together.
We are overjoyed to share we are expecting a baby this December. We feel so humbled to carry this incredible gift and pray everyday for a safe arrival and wisdom.

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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
