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. 

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’ve had several clients reach out to ask if it is too late to schedule a newborn session if their child is already a month or two old. You absolutely still can schedule a session! Also this is such a sweet age to capture. The baby is responding with smiles and interacting. Let’s not forget […]

6 Month Baby Portraits | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

This newborn session was a dream. From the white color scheme to the adoring parents and their cute French bulldog. They lived in a corner apartment so we had natural light coming from two directions. This makes the perfect lighting for newborn photography. The love they poured out to their sweet daughter was breathtaking and […]

A Light and Airy Newborn Session | Gaithersburg, MD Newborn Photographer

Why should you book a summer session? DC’s summers can be unbearably hot but they are also incredibly beautiful for family photos or outdoor newborn sessions. You don’t need to work around school schedules so you can have an early morning or evening session to avoid the heat. This also helps to avoid the crowds […]

The architecture is so detailed, the stone arch frames a family perfectly and the garden is lovely at any season. I met this sweet family on a sunny afternoon for their maternity session. They were […]

A Summer Maternity Session at the National Cathedral | Washington, DC Maternity Photographer

We rarely think about it as an adult…but when last have you taken the time to play? I assume in my daily tasks that play is reserved for children, but I truly think we adults could use a good dose of it ourselves. It doesn’t need to be fancy or cost a lot, it can […]

A Spring Picnic -finding time for rest and play

Baby Rose is adored already by her older siblings. It was so sweet watching them beg to hold her! We started out the session in the master bedroom and then finished outside in front of their home. I love when the weather is nice enough to offer both options. They had a lovely spot outside […]

A Spring Newborn Session at Home | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

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 […]

Baby Boy Newborn Session | Falls Church, VA Newborn Photographer

Introducing baby Diana. She was such a tiny bundle of perfection. She slept for most of the session but did open her eyes for just a few minutes. Her parents were incredibly relaxed and just so kind. Big brother was a little nervous to start but very quickly warmed up when he showed me his […]

When another photographer hires you top document their family, it’s the highest compliment. Adam is an incredibly talented wedding photographer here in DC. Little Alexander was a delight during his session. He was so calm and even gave a few smiles. We took their newborn session photos at home. I love the personal touches home […]
