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 spring newborn photo session felt so happy and bright. Three of the sweetest little girls.

They are so gentle and it makes […]

Washington DC Newborn Session

The only way I know how to describe our son’s birth is “hard and holy.” I say OUR because it wasn’t just me who delivered our son, it was my faithful husband, my twin sister who drove all the way from West Virginia and stepped in as a doula, the amazing hospital staff and the […]
