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 have never been to the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise but oh my….it’s stunning! As the sun rose over the Reflecting Pool, it felt magical. Katie and Pat were amazing -even when it took them a bit to find parking. We spent half our time by the water and then walked up to get a […]

A Sunrise Maternity Session at the Lincoln Memorial |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

I had a lovely time with this sweet couple. They are expecting their first little boy and I couldn’t be more excited for them! We walked around Lincoln Memorial for their traditional DC maternity photos and then walked toward the WWII Memorial for a few moments there in honor of Dorothy’s Grandfather. It was such […]

A Maternity Session at the Lincoln Memorial |Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

With all the new babies coming this year, I’ve had so many mothers reach out to me wondering when to book their maternity session. Three things for you to keep in mind: One, is your bump showing yet? You don’t want to schedule a maternity session and not be able to see your bump. Two, […]

The Best Time to Schedule Your Maternity Session

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning for their maternity session. We met early to beat the heat and there is always less people in DC the earlier you go out. Both of us were excited we got this session in after the quarantine haircut but before the baby arrives. 🙂 We started […]

Honestly, this session was so fun and easy. They were the sweetest couple and just look at that beautiful golden! We walked around the basilica and casually talked in between snapping portraits. They are going to be the best parents and their excited was evident. Congratulations, you guys! I wish you and your family the […]

Danielle -DC, Maternity Photographer

Daniel and I have known the Bruner-Yang family ever since we moved to DC. I was so excited when Erik reached out about family photos. They have the cutest kiddos and will have another baby arriving soon. We met at the Botanical Gardens and walked around the grounds. They were so fun despite the cold.

The Bruner-Yang Family |Washington, DC Photography

Erica is such a dear friend of mine! She is expecting her first baby -Miles- and I couldn’t be happier for her! She drove all the way into DC to see me Sunday afternoon. We sat and talked, sipped tea, and decided to drive to the Basilica for a few maternity photos. I’m so glad […]

A Summer DC Maternity Session

DC’s summer heat has been tricky to work around this year, but my clients have been very flexible with it all. The Cherry family opted to meet early in the morning and I’m so glad we did! We met at a little park tucked away in their neighborhood. It was the perfect setting, so private […]

The Cherry Family | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

Summer mornings are just my favorite time to photograph! The light is dreamy, it’s still cool in the city, and babies are always most cheerful early in the day. I was referred to Hallie through a past client/friend. I look forward to referral sessions because I know they will be a delight to work with. […]

The Leonard Family -Washington, DC Family Photographer

Maternity photos are so special to photograph. The expectation and excitement of new parents (especially first-time parents) is always a joy to capture. It’s lovely when parents opt to take maternity photos together for a last few documented moments just as a couple. I understand why some women wouldn’t choose too; you never know how […]
