  • Welcome!

    *Please note that I am no longer accepting new clients.*

    Thank you so much for visiting! I am Nicole, a custom newborn photographer and owner of Nicole Renée Newborns. I specialize in Newborn Portraiture in Baltimore County, Maryland and surrounding areas. I am a studio-only photographer working with natural light. I would describe my style as creative, fun and modern. I like natural poses, interesting textures and fun props. I am one of the only 100% digital newborn photographers in the Baltimore area and am thrilled to offer high-resolution digital files to my clients.

    You can view my recent work by scrolling down, or visit my portfolio by clicking on one of the "portfolio" links at the top. Also, I truly enjoy donating my photography services to new adoptive families through my non-profit organization, Red Thread Sessions. I am no longer accepting new clients to focus on my family and do not have intentions of returning to work soon. It has been such a pleasure to work with so many families through the years, and I truly cherish every single one! May God bless your day!

So loved! {Baltimore Adoption Photographer}

I absolutely adore this little man and his very special mama.  His Dad is pretty awesome too  🙂  I was able to witness and live vicariously through their adoption journey and also had the pleasure of welcoming them home from China a few weeks ago.  Mom and little guy came over for a visit earlier this week and we got to introduce the kids for the first time.  Lemmetellya … my little Sunshine is absolutely smitten.  I don’t know if it’s their similar Chinese heritage or their similar smoochable lips, but she cried when they left.  It was precious.  The kids played together, Mom and I chatted through the interruptions, and we even managed to sneak in a very impromptu, very mini, mini-session of mama and her sweet boy.  Here are some of the results!

A precious new life {Baltimore Baby Photographer}

In the midst of the tragedy that’s fallen upon the State of Connecticut here in the U.S., our entire country mourns.  It is so impossible to make sense of the events that happened on Friday, December 14th.  However, even through all of the sadness, there is hope and love.  Hope for new life and for a future.  And love for others.  In many cases, love for complete strangers.  This precious little angel serves as a beautiful reminder of that hope and love for me.  I met with her, mom and dad on Saturday morning and ohhhh was she good to me.  Such a stunning little treasure, she made my job so easy and helped to remind me that there is plenty of hope and love left in this world.  Hopefully her portraits can do the same for you!

Welcome home! {Maryland Adoption Photography}

Airport homecomings are not typically a type of Red Thread Session that I offer, but when a very special friend is bringing her very special son home, exceptions are made! There is so much emotion in an airport homecoming, truly there is not a way to put the feelings into words.  To see the culmination of all the prayer, patience, hope and old-fashioned hard work is literally priceless.  It is one of the most amazing events to be a part of and of course allows me to re-live our own homecoming all over again.

Trying to tell the story in just a few images on the blog is proving to be quite difficult though, but here is my attempt:

The beauty of adoption {Baltimore Adoption Photography}

It’s no secret that I have a heart for adoption.  Founding Red Thread Sessions and then watching it blossom right before my eyes over the last year has been indescribable.  It’s amazing to see so many photographers rallying around something that I have such a passion for.  When I see families like this AND I get to create portraits them … well it just means so much!  Mom is a photographer and fellow homeschooler in the same co-op, so our kids get to be together once a week.  I’ve watched their family grow from five to eight over the last few months, what a special thing to witness!  Their family has a natural-born son and daughter, a son from Korea and the three oldest children recently came home from Ethiopia.

Although it was a bit cold, we got together for a mini-session to celebrate the newest three coming home.  It was an absolute joy to work with them and it’s easy to see how much everyone loves one another.  There was a lot of laughing, silliness, dancing, singing, and hugging!  So delightful!  To read  more about this family, please visit their blog – The Cork Board!
