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. 

This session isn’t what you typically see here but I really enjoy keeping my photography skills fresh and challenged. I met Jeanne years ago at Union Market and she reached out to me about taking her headshot session. She wanted a classic, DC setting so she chose the Willard as her first location. We couldn’t […]

Jeanne |Classic, DC Headshot Session at the Willard

Over the past year Grace has become a dear friend to me. Just like her name, she is gracious, sweet and so caring. More than once, she has “checked in” with me at just the right moment. She loves the Lord and loves the children she nannies for with such gentleness. We had fun walking […]

Grace -Headshot Session at the Library of Congress

Lisa and I had such a fun time walking around the Union Market area chatting and taking her new headshot photos. It can feel intimidating when you have headshots taken of just yourself.

Lisa-Professional Headshot Session |Washington, DC Photographer

I have done several branding/headshot sessions this year and absolutely love them! It challenges me and forces me to get creative. Posing one person and making them comfortable is much harder than posing a family. Typically we are more self-conscience when we are alone but I love the challenge of making someone laugh and feel […]

Irini |Headshot and Branding Session

One of my favorite things in the world is to meet up with other creatives and talk business and life. I made a trip to Lancaster, Pa a few weeks ago and met up with Diane who owns Di Images. We curled up in a corner at Cafe1eight and talked for hours over avocado toast and […]

Diane -Washington, DC Portrait Photographer

I’ve recently have done several headshot sessions and loved them! Directing one adult versus a family full of wiggly toddler feels like a walk in the park. I specifically enjoy photographing headshots for creatives. This allows me to mix profession with personality and we always have such a fun time together. Being able to gather […]

Liz |A Classic DC Headshot Session

I love sessions that I can be fully creative. One adult to guide and pose compared to my normal family sessions with numerous children to win-over felt refreshing. Well, refreshing as it could feel being a humid Dc day in the mid-90s. Tessa was amazing though and we had a ton of fun. She plays […]
