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 family! We had such a great time together at the Library of Congress. I think you can guess by now, this happens to be one of my favorite locations to photograph in all of DC. All the clean lines, white backgrounds and French architecture….I love it all! The children definitely have a close bond […]

The Ahmad Family |Library of Congress, DC

There is nothing like a new baby. The smell and tiny grunts. The siblings getting to know the newest family member. The proud looks on the parents as they interact together, getting to know what a new normal is. Little Grant was welcomed with all the love possible. With two big sisters, he will get […]

The Duran Family -Washington, DC Newborn Session

I’ve known Richie for several years now and when he asked to have a photo session with his kids, I was thrilled…and a little nervous. I haven’t photographed teenagers in a while but they were amazing and so relaxed. We explored some back alleys, and rooftops and had an all around good time. Enjoy their […]

A photo session with Dad – Washington, DC

The Byrnes Family were so fun! I’m always excited when clients ask to bring their family pets along with them to a photo shoot. Sure, they can be unpredictable but they add a casualness to the session and fun expressions. Just like toddlers 🙂 Enjoy their quiet morning session at the Basilica.

The Byrnes Family -Washington, Dc Family

The McCartin Family was just delightful! We walked around the Hill Center, tossed the base ball, and played with Grandma. It was so casual and fun; exactly how toddlers like to be photographed, without any pressure and enjoying what they normally do together as a family. Enjoy this summer family photo session on Capitol Hill.

The McCartin Family -Washington, Dc

At most newborn sessions everything revolves around the baby, but this one went a bit differently. While Ethan slept, Basil stole the show. She practically posed for me in every shot. Enjoy a few of my (many) favorites from this sweet at-home newborn session in the comforts of their Capitol Hill home.
