11 Days Old | Studio Newborn Session

New Market MD Newborn Photography

Introducing...  BABY DECLAN

I'm still flying high from one of the most fun shoots I've had. The handsome little guy in front of the lens was just 11 days old when he came in for his session. He brought his big doggy brother Sherman with him too.

I have been lucky enough to personally know these awesome parents for awhile now . . . in fact I got to document this little guy coming into the world (which is still one of the coolest experiences as a photographer to date).

I photographed their maternity session over the summer as well and you can check that out here. Big brother, Sherman played a big role in that session too!

As for baby Declan, he was a little angel and slept peacefully through the majority of our session. There was a portion of the the session when he showed up bright eyed and curious.

New Market, MD Photography Studio | Jessica Neumann Photography

Photography Studio | Frederick MD Child Photographer

It finally happened! After many years of planning, I opened my very own, stand-alone photography studio. This has been a dream of mine ever since I started photography and to see it become a reality is extremely exciting and fulfilling. To say I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of my clients is an understatement. I have been lucky enough to capture newborns, babies, children and families year after year for the past almost 9 years (WOW!) . I am lucky to have met and worked with so many amazing families. This studio is going to allow me to provide the client experience that I have always dreamed of giving my clients.

Below you can see some of the love, sweat and hard work that went into making this studio a reality. What is not seen is the amazing crew behind this massive remodel. If you ever have a need (kitchen, bath or beyond), I can not recommend Clabaugh Construction enough.

Thank you to my friends, family, and clients. I can not wait to take thousands of more images in this new space.

5 Weeks Old | Studio Newborn Session

If there ever was a baby full of smiles, it was Hadley! Even from the beginning, when she was awake, she was smiling.

Hadley was 5 weeks old when she visited the studio and she slept like a dream. I always tell parents that just because their baby is older, it does not mean we will not get beautiful images! Each baby is different and unique and knowing their signs and how to work with them, makes it possible for a great session no matter their age!

I absolutely adored Hadley in pink and loved her moms idea of adding in some mint. Such a perfect color combination.

Her cheeks and lips were just adorable. I adored her and her session!

Princess Session | Child Photographer Ellicott City MD

4 Year Old | Child Photography | Ellicott City MD 

After working with her twin little brothers for a year (see them HERE), her father’s and I decided that it was Alivia’s time to shine. What better way to feel special than to have a Princess Sessions! I provided the gowns and locations and we just had fun . . . truly. It was a blast!


We started off in my studio and then ventured outdoors. Alivia came alive in front of the camera and by the end of the session she told me she wanted to be a photographer when she grows up. My heart.

You could tell the moment she really started getting comfy in front of the camera . . .

4 year old personality

We stumbled upon a cute little area that reminded me so much of The Secret Garden.

I can not begin to tell you how much fun we had on this photoshoot together. Capturing her 4 year old personality was such a joy!

Smiling Newborn | Studio Newborn Session

When a session starts off with these faces frame after frame, I know I am in for a treat . . . and trust me, Nora did not disappoint.

Nora was VERY sleepy, which made for a very laid back session.

Her rolls and cheeks were absolutely adorable.

. . . and that lip. Can we talk about that lip! This may be one of my favorite images of all time.

Nora’s parents are good friends of mine and I just knew what awesome parents they would be. Their images just radiated love and pride for their new little girl.

When a client is looking for wall art, I always like to work closely with them to fit the designs and space of their walls. This family wanted art hanging going up their stairs, so we came up with this gorgeous custom wall grouping. These are hand made wooden blocks from the Netherlands and they are to die for!

Thank you to this very special family for allowing me to capture their precious girl. I look forward to watching her grow over the years.
