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 sweet baby boy was long awaited. The IVF journey is incredibly hard and takes immense strength but the wonderful gift on the other side is worth the wait. Little Hadrian was so peaceful during his at-home newborn session. He slept almost the entire time and was just all around perfection.
