    *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!

My Baby Girl is 5!

I took our the opportunity on vacation to shoot a 5-year session with my daughter. I had been planning this little session for months and knew I wanted to use the hat, boots and a pettiskirt. I also wanted to use her “big sister” Chinese charm necklace (you can see a great shot of it below).

I was originally thinking railroad tracks but ultimately decided on the beach when I knew we’d be going for a visit. We were able to get all of our shots before for the crazy storm hit us. You can see I used this vintage processing a lot … I just love, love, love how it works with these colors!

The storm picked up so much that Peyton’s hat almost blew away – she grabbed onto it and I took the opportunity to snap this:

Here are a few black & whites also. Her hair was crazy because the wind was blowing around so much. We even started to get sand in our eyes!



So all in all, I’m pretty pleased with how these turned out. You wouldn’t BELIEVE what Zach and I had to do to get these smiles, but it was worth it for sure! Happy 5th Birthday to my gorgeous baby girl (who is not so much of a baby anymore).
PS – For those of you that don’t know – Zach and I are in the process of adopting a baby girl from China – hence the Chinese charm (made by Jiayin Designs). We gave it to Peyton as a birthday gift hoping to make her new soon-to-be sister a bit more real for her. We’re hoping to bring her home next Spring!

Exciting, congratulations!!

Gorgeous family portrait

Above – a more “traditional” family portrait.
Below – a photojournalistic in-the-moment family portrait – totally my thing. I absolutely love this image – so perfect. In fact, it might be my favorite from the session. Both of these are awesome family portraits, but I really love this 2nd one!

These sisters are stunning! They obviously got their dramatic brown eyes from their gorgeous mama – I am digging these awesome b&w’s!


I threw in one extra of little sis because … well, it was just too cute not to include! Both sisters did such a fantastic job today, thank you girls!

I haven’t mentioned yet that I was ecstatic to see the colors this family was wearing! Mom rocked out this wardrobe choice – everyone was so well coordinated. The dresses came from The Children’s Place (I love that store!).
C. Family – What a GREAT session we had! There are lots of great shots to choose from – these are a few of my favorites so far 🙂 I’ll be in touch when I finish up!

Meet Miss B’s sweet family







I’m pleased to introduce you to the rest of adorable Miss B’s family! She has a gorgeous older sister and 2 doting parents. I had sooooo much fun working on this session that I just couldn’t stop editing … so there are a few extras in the peek today 🙂
PS – This was another referral session = no session fee! I’m always so excited to do these – THANK YOU for trusting me with all of your family & friends’ memories! Remember – 3 referrals for paid portrait session = a waived session fee for your family!

Happy Birthday Princess!





Happy Birthday to this one-year-old baby girl! I had a super fun time hanging out and following her around on Saturday afternoon. She was a joy to be with – you can tell she is really loved!
Her birthday party was a Candyland theme – so this little princess got to sit in a bowl filled with candy for some shots too. Soooooo precious!! I’m saving them for the gallery though – for now, just one of her going to town on a lollipop. Love this – great ideas Mom! I also really enjoyed all of the colors in the tutu. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m obsessed with bright colors, so this was right up my alley!
THANK YOU for the opportunity to capture your little one at such a special time. She is a gorgeous little girl!
