September SHOOT MY KIDS! Date!

The kids are going back to school, it’s time for you to learn how to use that camera! Nicole is excited to announce that the next Group Workshop will be held in her Perry Hall home studio on Saturday, September 21st at 6pm! Please visit “The Workshop” page for more information about this Mom’s beginner photography class. Learn to creatively capture the ordinary, every day life of your family! Nicole uses only snapshots of her own children for demonstration purposes – no fancy equipment or lighting necessary – just the knowledge to use your DSLR camera!

The content of this workshop may be the same as previous ones, but this workshop is a little special.  She is thrilled to be joining a Visiting Orphans team for an orphanage mission trip to China in March 2014!  This workshop is a fundraiser for this very special trip. With a minimum tax-deductible donation of $99 made HERE to Visiting Orphans, you qualify to attend this SHOOT MY KIDS! Workshop. Forward your receipt to Nicole at, and she’ll take care of the rest!  To make the donation, please be sure to follow these very specific directions:

The “Fund category” should be: Shaanxi, China February 2014 (Leaders: Richards and Raudenbush)
The “Amount to donate” should be: $99
The “Team member or ministry name” should be: Nicole

Your donation screen should look like this:

It is very important that the “Fund category” and “Team member or ministry name” are filled out correctly so that the donation goes toward Nicole’s trip. If you have any questions about how to make your $99 donation or just need some help taking care of it, shoot Nicole an email at She’ll be happy to help! She is excited about this upcoming SHOOT MY KIDS! Workshop and is thankful for your help in making her Visiting Orphans trip possible!

Stay tuned for a similar fundrasier opportunity with the Fall Mini-Sessions!

Introducing the {Baby Registry}

I am very excited to introduce the brand new BABY REGISTRY option for expecting families!  All of my Baltimore, Maryland newborn photography clients are eligible!  The Baby Registry service was created so that family and friends could purchase something truly meaningful and memorable for expecting parents to celebrate their new arrival.  I know all too well that those precious miracles grow and change so quickly and they should be photographically documented as much as possible, especially in the first few weeks of life!  The gift of newborn portraits with me is one that expecting families will be able to cherish long after their baby has outgrown another set of onesies or the next box of diapers.

The Baby Registry is a complimentary service offered to expecting families who have scheduled a newborn session with me.  Once a date has been booked for their newborn session, I will supply them with all of the information they need to share their registry with family and friends!  Registered families will have their very own webpage on the Nicole Renée website for family and friends to easily purchase gift certificates via Paypal, and will receive 25 complimentary Registry Cards to be included in baby shower invitations.  The Registry Cards will give family and friends easy instructions to purchase gift certificates toward a newborn session.

Gift certificates are mailed to the gift giver to be presented at the baby shower or in person.  Or, if the purchaser is out of town or not available to present the gift certificate, it may be mailed to the expecting family instead.  After payment has been received, certificates should arrive in 5-7 days through the mail.  Gift certificates are purchased via Paypal through the individual expectant family’s webpage.  If payment via check or cash is preferred instead, please contact me to arrange that.  Gift certificates are available in $25 increments until the entire session payment has been fulfilled.  The Baby Registry will remain open until the final edited proofs from the session are available for the family, OR until the entire session has been paid for with gift certificates – which ever comes first.  Alternatively, at the request of Mom and Dad, I am happy to keep the registry open so that gift certificates can be purchased to document baby’s first year!

If you have questions or would like to set-up a Baby Registry with Nicole Renée Newborns, please use the “Contact Me” button at the top-right of the website.
