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. 

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 […]

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.

One thing I love about my job is the variety it offers. I photograph newborn babies everywhere and in various locations. Most frequent though is in DC row homes.
