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. 

Lifestyle Winter Newborn Photography There is something so special about lifestyle winter newborn photography. When the world is damp and cold, watching a newborn enter brings such life and hope. It’s like sunshine after a week of rain. Most DC row homes are narrow and dark but this home had wonderful windows on both sides […]

Lifestyle Winter Newborn Photography

There is something I love about photographing newborns in the winter. It’s so cold outside but the warmth and sweet feelings of a newborn is so comforting. The light on a winter day is always good due to no leaves on the trees outside letting in the maximum natural light. Little Eleanor was so content […]

Washington DC Newborn Photographer | Pink and Sage Newborn Photos

Sweet little Noah did so well during her in-home newborn session. I love to capture every detail of a newborn baby. The fingernails, the flaky skin and delicate eyelashes. She even gave me a few smiles. Every child is such an incredible miracle.

Newborn Details | Washington, DC Newborn Photography

This little one was awake for her entire session. I love when we can capture bright eyes of a newborn. Her big sister was the sweetest and loved on her new baby. We snuggled on the bed and read stories together. Then we stepped outside for a few photos because the day was just lovely! […]

A Bright and White Newborn Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

This session felt so “homey.” It was nothing but comfortable. That’s the main reason I love in-home newborn sessions. Everything you may possibly need is right there, within reach. It’s the space you feel the most YOU. It’s the four walls you bring your baby home to. It feels so special. Little Goldie was amazing […]

A Bright and Airy Newborn Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

I met Emily and her dear family years ago and have had the delight of photographing both her maternity and newborn sessions. They had just moved to DC before we squeezed in her maternity session. Little Eleanor had a long NICU stay so this session felt special that we could take Isabelle when she was […]

A Whimsical Newborn Session in a Garden | Newborn Session at Brookside Gardens

I love collecting all the baby names I have photographed over the years but this little girl may have my favorite. Her name is Posey. My Grandma Myers called flowers posies and it will forever bring back sweet memories of her. Posey was awake the entire time of her session but so calm. Her mother […]

Lifestyle Newborn Session on Capitol Hill | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

This newborn session was just what I dream of. Both parents were so relaxed and in love. Cece was excited about being a big sister but of course, wanted to poke little Hatcher’s eyes. It’s something all toddlers try to do and I think it is adorable every time. We stared the session by all […]

A Cozy Newborn Session at Home | Springfield VA Newborn Photographer

One of my favorite moments during newborn sessions is walking into the nursery. The decor says so much about the family and things they love. The tiniest details matter and they welcome a new babe into their home. Little Mable was baby #3 and still had all the care to detail as the first. This […]

A Cream and Black Nursery |Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Meet baby Terrington. He was such an incredibly calm baby. We took most of his portraits in the living room because they had a small space and that was the room with the most light. It’s amazing what you can do when you have a lot of natural light. Then we moved outside and took […]
