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 RenΓ©e 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!

Faces of the 2010 Christmas {Mini-Sessions}

This post sure is *LONG* overdue! LOL. I’m coming off of my mini-Thanksgiving break and really wanted to get these posted before sessions started up again!
I’m pleased to introduce you to all of my 2010 Christmas {mini-session} families! These kiddos are all so stinkin’ cute and I had so much fun with them! It was wonderful to see so many returning faces, but I also really enjoyed meeting some new ones too!
Merry Christmas!

Winners of CyberMonday Giveaway!

Winners of the CyberMonday Giveaway have been randomly picked!
Erin Feury and “Ang” are the proud new winners of one mini-session each!
Erin & Ang – please send me an email so I can get some information from you!
Ang – I’m sorry, I don’t know your last name! You are comment #38 when counting ALL of the comments (including the one I deleted). If the free mini-session isn’t claimed with 48 hours, I will pick another winner πŸ™‚
And to all of my 2010 clients – remember, you can still enter to win another FREE MINI-SESSION by snail-mailing me your Christmas card! Send me an email to get my address!

CyberMonday Giveaway!

I will be giving away 2 FREE MINI-SESSIONS today only!

The mini-session is up to 45 minutes and includes 10 high-resolution digital images. Session will take place at Jerusalem Mill, in Kingsville. Mini-sessions are for immediate family only, up to 5 people. Newborns may not be photographed during mini-sessions due to time restrictions. Session must be scheduled with Nicole in advance.

So what’s the catch?

No catch … but this is what you need to do to enter … go tell all of your Facebook friends that you entered a giveaway to win a free mini-session with me – make your status “I just entered to win a free mini-session with @Nicole Renee Photography and you can too!” Please use the little “@” symbol to link to my Facebook page. You must be a fan to use that feature. THEN, come back to THIS blogpost and comment on the post by telling me you posted to your FB page! That’s it! Entries will be taken until tomorrow afternoon, Tuesday, November 30th at 12:00pm. One entry per person. Multiple blog comments will automatically be disqualified. Comments made on my Facebook page will NOT be entered in the drawing – all comments must be here on the blog. Two winners will be randomly drawn and notified on Tuesday.

There’s more!

For a little bit of Christmas fun, I am going to give away ANOTHER FREE MINI-SESSION! To enter, snail mail me your Christmas (holiday) card with a portrait (or portraits!) taken by Nicole in 2010. Images must be part of the card, not just a print. You can shoot me an email to grab my address. All Christmas cards (AKA entries) must be received before Christmas day. Cards arriving after Christmas will not be counted. Winner will be randomly drawn after the New Year (sorry – I’m leaving on vacation on Dec. 26 and won’t be back until Jan. 3). I can’t wait to see all of your creative Christmas cards!

Zach gave me your website. Beautiful work! Looking forward to your capturing my girls' images at Jerusalem Mills!

Black Friday Sale!

Christmas Card designs are 50% off!

Still haven’t taken care of your Christmas cards this year?

Are you looking for a unique card to show off a portrait from a 2010 session with Nicole? Purchase a custom NRP Christmas card design for only $15 – that’s a $15 savings! You will not see cards like these anywhere else – what a perfect way to show off your custom portraits!

You may pick an image(s) from a previous 2010 session and customize your wording. All designs are 5×7 and include a front & back. Most designs can accommodate more than one image. After Nicole has received customization information from you, she will send you 2 flattened jpeg files for printing. Upload the images to Mpix and voila! Cards are best printed as postcards for a true custom feel, Nicole does not suggest creating prints from them.

Check out the previous blog post showcasing all of the custom designs HERE! And just for fun, a new design has been added (#9) for the Black Friday special! Remember, this offer ends Sunday at midnight! Click on the “Buy Now” paypal link below. Happy shopping!
