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 was filled with all my favorite things. A darling baby, active toddlers and a beautiful garden. But my favorite thing about this session was the bond the parents had together with their little family. They are in a very busy season of life but they both led with such gentleness that the children […]

Fall Family Sessions | Washington, DC Family Photographer

Hello friends.   Something I have been pondering recently are the many beautiful moments you share together as a family. It may be saying grace before your dinner, playing games in the front lawn, or walking to the park together. It may even be pizza nights, bath time or the way your toddler hugs onto your […]

The Art of Storytelling

I met the S family several years ago for Wheeler’s newborn photos and now he is a big brother. We had two parents, two god parents, three dogs, a toddler and newborn who all were amazing. Little Read was so calm and relaxed during his session. We started outside with everyone and then moved indoors […]

A Sunny Newborn Session at Home |Washington, DC Newborn photographer

I love entering a nursery. It speaks of all the anticipation for a new baby to enter a family and all the carefully selected items that say “welcome home.” Baby Grant’s nursery was simply beautiful! The calming color palate was the perfect choice for a baby boy’s nursery. His mother had nautical themed items places […]

A Nautical Themed Nursery for Baby Boy| Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Meet Madison Joy. She was such a delight to photograph. I went to their home on a cold, winter day but that’s my favorite thing about at-home newborn sessions; they can happen any time of the year. We started downstairs in their living room space which included the whole family; 2 parents, 1 newborn and […]

An At-home Newborn Session | Alexandria, VA Newborn Photographer

When I think of my photography business and what I want my clients to take away from each session…it would be connection. Every time. Anyone can take a self portrait with their iPhone these days. And they are actually really good! But, it’s so hard to capture connection when you are taking the photo yourself. […]
