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.

One particular thing I want to work on this year is keeping things cleaned out and to a minimum. We lived in a one bedroom apartment or small rental for years and now that we own a home I am determined to not fill every nook and cranny. I love open and “white” space. It […]

Christmas Gift Ideas -2019

I recently went to the local library and picked up a few books to read during the fall evenings. Since it gets dark so much faster I can struggle with feeling tired early and all I want to do is curl up on the couch-preferably with a blanket, slippers and candle burning nearby-with a book. […]

Friday Favorites -Cozy Books

Eat. Shop. Linger. All three of these things I enjoy doing (well, the shopping is debatable. I get restless and am a power shopper. I’m ready to leave the store in about ten minutes. I do love Amazon though…) and they all come together beautifully at the barn sale. This year could not have been […]
