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.
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 […]

As a parent, booking your newborn photographer can feel like a big decision, but here are a few helpful tips to make sure you find the photographer that is perfect for your family. Find […]
This is the second time I have photographed this sweet family’s newborn session. Little Frankie came into the world a week ago and it was such a joy to witness Elliot becoming a big brother. The parents always set the scene for newborn sessions and these two are the best! They were so calm and […]
This little man was so, so sweet! He started out a bit unsettled but after he ate, he settled in for the entire session. So many newborns act like they are starved when it’s time to start a session. They hear new voice and sense a new person in the home and want to stay […]
There is something I love about simple newborn photography. There are no distractions and you can truly focus on what matters most…the baby. Last week I had the honor of visiting my friend Bethany and seeing her little man. He is already a heart breaker at 3 months. He gave me so many different expressions […]

If I could choose only 5 things to take to a newborn session, it would be this list! Honestly there are so many reasons why I love simple gear and props but the most important is: it relaxes the parents and doesn’t feel overwhelming. Props are beautiful but I prefer simple, organic and natural poses […]
The Duncan family welcomed their second boy into their hearts and home and we are thrilled for them. William Rogers is simply perfect. I love session where Grandparents can be part of the moments. Anna’s mother was there and we got to capture a few 3 generation photos. She pointed out the nursery door hanging…a […]
When I think of a woman who embraces motherhood to the fullest, I think of Kathy. She’s the kind of mother that would fit in a Norman Rockwell painting. She celebrates every holiday, making it so fun for her sweet girls. And on the hard days, she hugs them even tighter. Welcome to this bright […]
Little Graham was a joy to photograph. He slept the entire session and even gave us a smile or two. Bones wasn’t too sure about being in the family photos but decided to cooperate in the end. Enjoy a few of my favorites in their sweet Dc home.
