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. 

I met Sarah and her girls on a warm, summer evening at the National Cathedral. We walked through the Bishop’s Garden and it was simply delightful. The girlies looked at flowers and even got to chase a bunny. I loved how casual it felt and how much fun the girls had even while taking photos. […]

Mother and Daughter Session at the National Cathedral |Washington, DC

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 met the Cannon family at the Capitol on a warm, fall afternoon. Honestly, I don’t know if I have ever met such well-behaved children. They were so fun to photograph! The sun was filtering through the trees just perfectly, and when the mother pulled out an old quilt for them to sit on, I […]

The Cannon Family |United States Capitol, DC

I always get so excited when sessions include Grandparents. I photographed Whitney and her family several months ago and now to add Grandparents to the mix…so fun! She emailed me the day before to say we had their session scheduled right over the Nat’s parade, so we opted to meet early. Crowds downtown can be […]

The Sheppard Family |Botanical Gardens

I have photographed the Oksala family for years. When Lisa asked if I could meet them for an extended family session-with Grandparents-I was delighted we got a date to work! They were so much fun and incredibly kind. I even received a lunch invitation after. I try my very best to capture personalities in a […]

The Oksala Family -Washington, DC Family Photographer

Each spring I look forward to the Magnolia blossoms at the Smithsonian. There are so many trees, you can smell the scent in the air as you walk through the gardens. Just like anything else in DC, there are crowds. You have about 2 feet to walk around and this can be tricky when photographing […]

The Gonzalez Family |Washington, DC Family Photographer

“There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, what if you fly? – Erin Hanson This little family was entirely too sweet! It was very windy the day of their session but we chose several spots that were more sheltered […]

Favorite Locations to Celebrate Christmas in DC

I get asked so many times from friends -and complete strangers- what our favorite restaurants are in DC. To be honest it’s hard to name off just a couple because the food scene in DC is amazing. Daniel and I put together out top 5 favorites. We chose these for many reasons: they put so […]

Friday Favorites: Five Star DC Restaurants

I had so much fun at this session! Toddlers can be a little tricky to photograph. Their attention span is 1/4 seconds and they are on the move constantly. I always tell my clients not to stress about getting too many “portrait” photos because the moments that come naturally end up being their favorite anyway. […]
