DC newborn photographer

soft natural light, simplistic posing, genuine moments

I've really come to value the unscripted, genuine moments that unfold as families enjoy this special time together.

The days and weeks after bringing home your newborn are so joyful, yet often busy and tiresome as well. I am so happy to eliminate the extra time and planning that packing up and driving into a studio can bring.

By traveling throughout Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia, I'm able to allow families to remain in the comfort of their home.  This is not only a beautiful sentiment for the photographs, but often it is less stressful for everyone - especially siblings!

I'm here to provide an effortless full service experience from newborn session preparation and wardrobe planning, to a beautiful gallery reveal with custom heirloom and artwork design that you will enjoy in your home for years to come.

After being a Maryland and DC newborn photographer since 2014

I adore natural posing, with the comfort of baby always being the top priority. My approach to styling is simplistic and delicate; utilizing neutrals, softer color tones, and minimal accessories. 

I always welcome parents and siblings (or furry friends!) to pose with baby. Watching the joyful smiles unfold as you snuggle your brand new little love is heart warming!

Once your date is officially reserved, we'll get started planning! My portrait questionnaire will guide you through several questions to help me get to know your family and portrait preferences.

Framed wall art, albums, matted prints and keepsake boxes. There are so many wonderful ways to enjoy your photographs in your home.

Albums are an incredible way to save a large number of your favorite images in one place, and one of my very favorite heirloom items. They not only style beautifully on shelves or a coffee table, but being able to grab them and flip through the pages with your family is so joyful. 

The floppy disk, the CD and now the USB drive - technology is forever changing, and we have no way of knowing how long we'll be able to view our photos on these devices. Ensuring your memories are safe and tangible is so important to me.

As your Maryland and DC newborn photographer, I am here to ensure your memories are safe, tangible and enjoyed in your home daily

"Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!" 

Beyond amazing. Jess has taken pictures of our family twice now and somehow manages to capture the best pictures of us all! Even with an ornery toddler and unpredictable newborn, Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!"

“She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.”

One thing we NEVER stressed about was our photographer. Besides taking phenomenal pictures she was so easy going, friendly and thoughtful. Often times checking in with me just to see how we were doing and how things were coming along. She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.
