Nicole Renee Newborns bio picture
  • 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!

Little man is back! {Baltimore Baby Photographer}

So I am *finally* getting the chance to post the sessions I shot before we left to bring Sunshine home! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long – I shot this one over Memorial Day weekend!
Anywho – here is Mr. O., again! His family are literally my first clients and I have had so much fun watching them grow from a family of 3 to a family of 5! It’s always such a joy to meet them for another session! Mr. O. was a perfect model for us on this day and did everything we asked of him (definitely a change from his newborn session HERE!!).
I adore so many of the resulting images, but I think my favorite is the first one … I just love seeing his family look on at him as he proudly shows off his new skill of sitting 🙂 I had a great time hanging out with everyone, again! And I can’t wait to see this gorgeous little guy at his next session, when he will celebrate his first birthday!

<3 LOVE <3

Everyone loves a brown-eyed girl!

I had the pleasure of spending Saturday morning with this 7-month-old cutie-patootie! She had the sweetest little smile and was such a joy to be around! Plus, she has brown eyes – the same as BOTH of my baby girls – LOVE! I had such a great morning and it was so fun getting to know her mama and daddy! It’s easy to see how much they love little Miss S. too – they just doted all over her!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to capture your precious baby girl – she is just beautiful and I had a great time! I’ll let you know as soon as I finish up with the rest of your session!

Smiley little guy is back!

You may remember this awesome little guy from THIS POST HERE … I captured one of my most favorite images ever at his newborn session 🙂 Well, he’s back and just as adorable as ever at 7 months! Plus, he has inherited Mom & Dad’s stunning fashion sense and looked totally perfect for his session yesterday – I just *adore* (like really adore) his hair!
I am so thrilled with our results – my favorites are the ones of Mom with little C. – there is nothing like a Mama with her baby boy. S. family – it was such a pleasure to see you again! I can’t wait to show you the rest – I saved the last portraits (more of my favorites!!) for your gallery so we don’t ruin any surprises! I’ll let you know as soon as I finish up!

The newest American citizen!

I am so pleased and proud to introduce our daughter, the newest American citizen!
Our Beautiful Sunshine!
Born May 27, 2010
in Fuzhou City, Jiangxi, China
Adopted June 7, 2011
We got home last night and everyone is doing really great! We are a bit (ok, a lot) sleepy, but are so ecstatic to be home again! Thank you again for all of your support during such a special time for our family!

What a stunning little girl <3

I’m leaving for CHINA!

We leave tomorrow to go get our girl! I am so ecstatic but also sad to say goodbye to Peyton and Ryan at the same time. When I look at that pretty little face below, it definitely helps put my mind at ease! It’s amazing that all of the work we have been doing for the past year (actually, over a year!) is finally coming to a culmination … our ADOPTION TRIP … the goal we have been working toward for SO LONG! Holy cow, I’m going to CHINA and I’m coming back with another beautiful daughter! It’s still hard to wrap my brain around that … maybe I’ll “get” it when I am on the plane?

Some housekeeping … I plan to return to shooting sessions in July – I know the clients I need to contact when I get home to schedule and I promise I’ll take care of you when I return! I ask for your patience in my responding to email when I get home, I’m just not sure how we will transition. I’ll be working a little lighter than usual through the summer but plan to get back into the swing of things in the Fall – just in time for Fall Mini’s!
Thank you so much to ALL of my readers, seriously from the bottom of my heart to the top of it, for all of the love and support you have shown me during this process! It’s been crazy and long, sometimes frustrating but always joyful … and now the REAL work begins. Please, please, please follow our adoption trip on my PERSONAL BLOG!! I am all set up with a VPN and should have no problems blogging in China. And even if I do have issues, a very wonderful friend has offered to blog for me if needed (I just love her!!). The pictures won’t be quite as plentiful as usual (no Macbook in China), but I promise you’ll be able to still get the idea! Also, I’d love for you to follow along in our prayer schedule – it’s based on what we are doing each day in China. HERE’S THE LINK with the information.

Congratulations to your family and to Brooklyn. You are all so lucky to have each other. I love you all so much and look forward to following along and praying during your journey. Now go get that amazing little girl and bring her home 🙂

Love you all!
