    Thank you so much for visiting! I am Nicole, a custom newborn photographer and owner of Nicole Renรฉe 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!

Siblings – Vintage & B&W style

I had some fun editing these! This first one is processed with a vintage style and I just love it! The kids have great expressions on their faces but my favorite part is how big brother is curling his toes in his shoes. I know I’m strange, LOL. But it shows that he was really having a good time ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m really digging these kiddos in b&w also. I have all of the color versions too, but just “felt” the b&w on a lot of these.


Here’s the vintage processing again. It’s definitely not for every image but these kids really pull it off well ๐Ÿ™‚

And one more of big brother in b&w – I think this was a “stinky face” … toooo cute!

Thanks Mom & Dad for meeting up with me on Memorial Day! These are a few of my favorites from what we shot. Your kids are utterly adorable, I can’t wait to get my camera in front of them again!

A Timeless Beauty





I had such a fun time photographing this little beauty – this is the 4th time I’ve had the pleasure so she probably looks familiar! It’s impossible to forget those unbelievably reflective baby blues ๐Ÿ™‚ Miss Piper is just about to turn 1 and is now crossing into the “little girl” territory … it’s a little bittersweet!
She is an amazing trooper – we used several areas for our portraits and got her out of the stroller over and over again … she happily posed for me (most of the time anyway). LOL. We shot some fun cake smashing images too, at least until the ants invaded and took over.
To Mom & Dad – THANK YOU! It’s been a pleasure to capture Piper’s first year and I sooo appreciate your referrals! It means more than you know that you continue to send your friends to me. I look forward to watching Piper grow up – we’ll meet up again soon to get those tutu shots!
PS – Hey Clients!!
This session fee was completely waived because Piper’s parents have sent me so many referrals! If you don’t know about my referral program – head over to my website and check it out! You can earn a waived session fee for every 3 referrals for paid portrait sessions. It’s the best way I know to say “thank you!”

aww my little niece is so beautiful! love the Piper Diaper photo!

Smiling princess

There are so many things I adore about this first image … the obvious adorable newborn smile, her curly ear, the cowlick that her brother also sports and the back wrinkles. I just love it when I catch a newborn mid-smile, it totally makes my day ๐Ÿ™‚

This little princess was pretty much perfect after about 3 hours when momma finally got her drifting off. Although she’s fighting a bit of jaundice her skin was absolutely perfect otherwise.

And when she was really sleepy, she let me mold her almost any way I wanted (save the placement of her hands a few times – she was quite particular about where they should be!).

This image is, to me, the epitome of the fetal position – look at her teeny tiny bottom! Oh so precious.

To finish off this fun peek, I included a shot of Miss M.’s big brother at just 17 months old. I kept telling mom how “beautiful” he was and then corrected myself with “handsome.” LOL. But seriously, he is one gorgeous little guy – I can’t wait to see what a beauty the new little princess is at the next session!
Thank you for inviting me into your home during such a special time! It was fun getting to know your family and I appreciate “using” your new baby girl as a model for all of my new props. We got some really awesome portraits with the new stuff, I’m saving them for your gallery ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweetest big brother ever





Seriously, isn’t that 1st one the sweetest “big brother” portrait? This little guy is expecting a new baby sister in July so we had a pre-baby family session. I just adore the maternity portraits we did of Mom, she’s totally stunning! I’m also in love with the b&w family portrait. We got an awesome “traditional” pose also, but I mostly prefer the in-the-moment shots anyway.
And of course, the session would not have been complete without individual portraits of 18-month old J. It’s funny, this little guy made us work for the shots, but I sure am glad we didn’t give up! A few of my favorites came from the last 10 minutes of the session! LOL.
R. and L. – I had a really fun time hanging out with you both and chasing around your little guy – he is such a sweetie pie! Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

On the move!





I always enjoy photographing this little guy. You may remember him as the Little Sailor HERE. At 9 months now, he is moving around a ton compared to our last session. He also has such a variety of facial expressions … I think we just *may* have captured them all ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll leave the final call up to Mom though. Here are a few of my favorites so far. He is pulling himself up on everything and crawling all over. He is super entertained by Mom & Dad too, which you can especially see in the first portrait (love the little teefers!).
Thanks again M & B for another great session! I’m so glad the weather held out for us! I can’t wait to see your little guy in another 3 months!
