Jennifer is so awesome! She did such a great job on our maternity shoot and she was so patient today during our newborn shoot. If you want a photographer that knows what she’s doing & who is super nice & professional, then Jennifer is the one for you. Her photos will not disappoint and she edits them & get them to you in no time! Thank you Jennifer for such a wonderful experience. We will definitely be contacting you in the future whenever we need professional photos and most definitely be recommending you to our family and friends.

Jennifer has been doing photos for my family for years, she is the only photographer I use. Jennifer is always professional, accommodating and especially great with my 6 month old son during photo sessions. I recommend her for anybody who is looking for a great photographer.

The quick low-down: Jennifer is AMAZING! An amazing local photographer with attention to detail, amazing customer service, and good pricing. I recommend her to all my family and friends.
The long low-down: When I was pregnant I was contemplating getting maternity photos taken. I actually came here on Yelp and found Jennifer. She had great reviews, but more importantly to me, she was in NEWARK! I’m a Newark girl born-and-raised so I like to support Newark businesses. We ordered a Maternity/Newborn package with Jennifer. I emailed Jennifer inspiration pictures that I had found online/pinterest for my maternity photo shoot. We exchanged emails on the ideas I had and wanted to incorporate. I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about photography, but Jennifer was able to take my rambled and vague emails of how I wanted “etherial photos with lots of light” (I know, etherial? could I be any more vague?) and turn them into beautiful shots! I love my maternity photos.
My daughter was ten days overdue (that lazy stinker) and Jennifer was so accommodating with playing the wait game with us. She was fluid and able work us in to her busy schedule. I had again exchanged emails with Jennifer about some ideas that I had for the shoot. When you get to her house with your then 6 day old newborn, you’re pretty scared because you’ve never taken the tiny baby out. Jennifer’s home and studio is welcoming, safe, and WARM. She cranks the heat for your little babe so they are nice and warm. She guides you on how to prepare for the shoot so your babe will be nice and sleepy and full for their photo shoot. She makes it easy. When we got to her studio, Jennifer surprised us with the most adorable model plane to put our baby in. She had gone out of her way to search for and borrow it from another photographer just to fulfill my idea of a airplane themed shoot. For me, she went above and beyond. During the photo shoot is when you see Jennifer in her element. Especially with the newborns! She was so calm, caring, and loving towards our baby. She takes her time setting them up with care. It would sometimes take 5 minutes to set my daughter just right so her little hands would be curled perfectly. We took lots of photos with lots of headbands and props all provided by Jennifer (I didn’t have lots of cute clothes for my babe at the time… plus my babe was naked the entire time pretty much). We love and cherish our newborn photos. Afterwards, Jennifer even made a personalized birth announcement for us with some of the pictures she took. Seriously, again, above and beyond!
Fast forward to now. I bought a grow-with-me package with Jennifer that includes 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and 1 year photos for a GREAT price. We’ve taken the 3 month and 6 month photos already and I love so much more each time. I love going back and seeing how my baby has grown and changed. These pictures and memories of them this little are so priceless to me. All of our friends and family can’t believe how beautiful the pictures are. Jennifer has so much talent. I’ve recommended Jennifer to so many of my friends and family. I even purchased a maternity/newborn package for my sister as a gift. She’s amazing. You won’t regret working with her.

I had my first session with Jennifer when she did mini sessions before the holidays when my son was 7 months old. I found her through a mommy group on Facebook and I sure do wish I found her when my son was born. I felt like I had found a hidden gem with Jennifer! She took amazing pictures and we even had our dog in the pictures. She was great with my son and the dog! My son was smiling at her the whole time! I had another session with her at the beginning of April for my son’s first birthday photos and once again the pictures were amazing. All of our pictures have been outside and she finds great places to take pictures and has a wide variety of fun props! She got pictures to us quickly and we even get some sneak peeks on her Facebook page the same day! I am definetly excited to have more sessions with her in the future when we have our second baby. As long as we live in the area I will always use her. So look no further if you are looking for a photographer because you will not be disappointed!

I really cannot believe no one has reviewed Jen. I can see us using Jen for future family photos. She uses natural light which is a major plus for me. She has a huge truck that she carries the fun props on her location sites as well. She’ll offer suggestions for props and welcomes your creative ideas as well (though I actually did not offer anything creative). She’s patient with the children and captures them in such great shots.
She’s one busy lady, on top of photography, she has a full-time job, and a young family herself. She primary focuses on family, maternity, newborn photography. She only books a few sessions over the weekend so that she can spend time with her family, which I wouldn’t blame her. She offers affordable mini-sessions as well, but to keep up with that you’d definitely want to follow her on Facebook.
I saw a sneak peak of the photoshoot on her FB page the same day as the shoot, but she provides a CD or digital download of all the photos within a week. You get personal print release of all photos.
50% deposit is due to book the reserved date, and we easily used paypal to do the transaction.

Jennifer Pope is an amazing photographer! We used her to take photos for my 5 month old and again once he was 20 months. She is patient and works very well with children! My son, Elijah, was running around like you would naturally expect a toddler to do at his last shoot. Jennifer was able to capture so many amazing pics of him. From the pictures, you would have thought he was following her every command! She really captured his joyous spirit and his playful side.
Her pricing is very reasonable and I see promotions on her Facebook page from time to time. We used her when she was first getting started and we received a free session back when Elijah was 5 months. There are SO many options for photographers these days, but we will definitely be going back to Jennifer!
She is creative and knows amazing places for photo shoots I would never think of! Also, her customer service is great. I had to reschedule twice for his last shoot and she was very understanding which I appreciated very much. She will get your pictures back to you in a timely manner as well.

We had our first of many sessions with Jennifer this last weekend. I highly recommend any family takes their kids to her… she has a loveable personality that kids are drawn to. We were skeptic whether our one year old daughter would comply, but Jenn was so good with keeping her occupied and smiling. She also chose a great location for the photos… it was very natural and caught the essence of the fall season . I also was impressed with her different setups… i.e. furniture and props. Bottom line she is very efficient, experienced and creative. We will definitely be using Jenn in the future for our family photos.
Check her out in social media… she’s very up to date with technology and knows how to use her network to her advantage.
San Francisco, CAWe just had our first child, so I was a little obsessed with getting lots of documentation of his first year. I stumbled across Jennifer’s website while I was toying with the idea of getting more professional pics captured and boy am I glad I did. I have to say that we were beyond satisfied with the entire experience, from the initial correspondence to the actual images. Jennifer is really responsive and I love how quick her turnaround time is. Sure, the final product is what we are really after, but it’s a great feeling to see the sneak peeks within a day and then get all the images within a week. It saves you from the anticipation and worrying about whether the pictures will turn out ok. We were happy with the images and received lots of compliments on the pictures, so it’s not like she sacrificed any quality for the time.
I’m definitely looking forward to our next session with her (we got a package) as I’m now confident that we will love the images. If you’re considering booking with her, don’t hesitate to do so. I have a feeling that her awesome prices (and maybe super quick turnaround time) will be increasing as her popularity grows.
I stumbled across Jen’s photography website while looking for a Bay Area photographer to take photos of my family. Boy, was I lucky! The whole experience with her, from start to finish, was fantastic. She is quick to respond to any questions you may have. She is so creative and has many different props that she incorporates into the photos. I was a little nervous about how my two year old twin daughters would react to the experience, but Jen put them at ease and was able to get some amazing shots of them. I received a CD with all of the photos a week after our session and was beyond thrilled with how beautiful the photos turned out. I highly recommend Jen and will definitely be booking another session with her!

Last year when I found out that I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to have a newborn session for my baby boy. I seen Jennifer Pope’s work through one of my friend’s. When I contacted Jennifer, she replied very quickly and was informative about the pricing and any questions I had. We were able to pick a date and she mentioned that newborn photo session should be done within 2 weeks after baby is born. I am glad that I booked her and reserved the date in advance because she is getting book by other newborn parents fast.
On the day of the photo shoot, I did pay extra for her to travel to my home (which is worth it). She brought her own props and was very patience when working with my 8 day old baby boy. I can’t wait for the finish photo that she mentioned it will be ready by a week. Overall experience with Jennifer was excellent. Can’t wait to go back to her when baby gets older for another photo session. Maybe this time, we can do a family photo including our dog as well. If you plan to book Jennifer Pope, do book her in advance and reserve your date. You won’t regret it.
