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. 

The highlight of taking family photos for me is seeing the children grow. Just a few months can make such a difference. A smiling baby can turn into a talkative toddler in just a blink. This sweet family told me the little boy was playing “photographer” for days after their session with me. How darling!

A Fall Family Session at the National Cathedral | Washington, DC

This time of year is absolutely wonderful! This was my fourth session of the day and it went so smooth. I adore when parents are relaxed -it gives a peaceful feel and the children follow their lead. The sun was setting as we started their session in the gardens. Sometimes you need to let a […]

A Fall Family Session at the Botanical Gardens |Washington, DC Family Photographer

I met this sweet family early morning at the Supreme Court. The light is so pretty that time of day. When Emily walked around the corner in her beautiful mustard dress I was thrilled. It matched perfectly with the fall tones and the little girls’ checkered dresses. We stared out in the side garden and […]

A Fall Family Session at the Supreme Court | Washington, DC Family Photographer

The Brandt family has been dear friends of ours ever since we moved to DC. They have been such an encouragement to us during our adoption journey. They are so invested in their community and the church abroad. Caleb is a senior this year and Timothy isn’t far behind. Somehow time continues to fly. We […]

A Summer Afternoon Family Session |Washington, DC Family Photographer

One of my favorite things during a newborn session is watching the older siblings welcome a baby into their family. Little Jones was so sweet with baby Blakely and gave him countless kisses. Four years old is a tough age to keep a child’s attention so we needed to grab a few graham crackers to […]

A Relaxed Newborn Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Meet Rosemary Gertrude. She was the sweetest little person. I photographed her big brother 5 years ago and it’s always the biggest honor to be asked again to document a family’s special moments. I love the peaceful sleeping poses but when a baby looks up at you with big bright eyes….it’s my favorite. Rosemary had […]

A Heartfelt At-home Newborn Session | Falls Church, VA Newborn Photographer

I have photographed the Klem family for years now and I adore them! The boys are so sweet and will let their personalities show a time or two during their session. I have to be ready for it because they both tend to be on the shy side. We walked around the Basilica grounds while […]

The Klem Family |Washington, DC

I love walking alongside families as they grow and enter new seasons. I took their maternity photos, little Nell’s newborn and now her one year old photos. Also, how does time fly so fast?! She is pure sweetness and her big brother adores her.

Nell Turns One |Fall Birthday Session

I’m sharing SO many images from this session because I simply could not decide which ones to choose. I met the Lee family early at the Library of Congress due to the heat. DC has been incredibly hot this summer! This family is everything I dream of in a client. They are comfortable and happy, […]

The Lee Family | Summer Family Session in DC

I adore meeting clients for the first time. I love seeing their personalities and watch the family dynamics and how they love each other. I met the Driggs family early Saturday morning at the Smithsonian Gardens. We chose early due to nap times and the heat. It was perfect! There is something lovely about morning […]
