    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.

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!

A princess & a stud :-)





This was SUCH a fun session!! I’ve been wanting to go to the railroad track by my house for … I don’t know … over a year now? LOL. Mom obliged me and we only got stopped by the firemen once 🙂 Hehe.
There were so many fun portraits, I had such a tough time trying to decide which ones to post tonight. But I think these are my favorites. My MOST favorite from this session is the 2nd one above – I liked it so much that I processed it a few different ways. The version I posted is a desaturated vintage look – this was my personal fav! (Check below for the other 2 versions!)
Thanks to this fun family for an awesome session – the kids were perfect and I had a blast!

Fun processing

Here are a few different versions of this fun portrait!
The first is the edited original, the second is the vintage version I posted in the peek and the last is a vanilla “bakery glaze” action. I’m sticking with my favorite – it’s the middle one, I just love it! Something about all the princess-y goodness on a railroad track with a vintage look 🙂 Perfection!

Miss Happy





Isn’t Miss E. a DOLL?! Her eyes … WOW! She was a great model for me and I got the opportunity to do this session at a gorgeous home built in the mid-1800’s! Thanks Grandma & Grandpa 🙂 The house was amazing – tons of cool architectural details that you just don’t see anymore. It was the perfect spot to capture this adorable 6-month old.
I’m super-excited about a bunch of the portraits we got, but I’m most excited about the first one. I’ve been wanting a perfect “grabbing feet” portrait and I finally had success, yay! Thanks to Miss E. for allowing me to capture it! And thanks to her awesome family for a fun morning – it was a pleasure to meet you all!

Another beautiful session OUTSIDE!





I am L-O-V-I-N-G this weather!! It was a teeny weeny bit chilly on Saturday, but I’d rather deal with that any day over being inside for a session! I had the pleasure of capturing another great family with gorgeous siblings at my favorite location 🙂 Have I mentioned I adore my job?!
These are a few of my favorite individual portraits so far. We had to work to get some natural smiles … and boy did that work pay off! Aren’t these kids stunning? Little sis is a natural in front of the camera and I can totally see that big bro will have all of the ladies in a few short years – just check out his eyes! I really love all of these shots but I’m excited with how that last one turned out the most. I am totally digging her beautiful reflection!
Thanks P. family for being such good sports and putting up with the cooler temps to get outside! It was definitely worth it!

Three birthdays






These 3 gorgeous siblings are all celebrating their birthdays, how fun! We had nice enough weather to get outside and really enjoy ourselves. Older brother is SUCH a ham and little Miss A. is the happiest baby on the planet, I swear! Mr. C. (the middle guy in the first & fourth portraits) was a bit more of a challenge, but a few bribes got him to open up for me perfectly.
I just love how they all resemble each other but are also so different at the same time. They all have incredible eyes but they’re all different colors – soooo cool (and fun for me to photograph!). And BTW, Miss A. is the absolute spitting image of her Momma – wow! I had such a blast today, I really DO go to my happy place when I can photograph kiddos outside. I have the BEST job EVER!
