  • 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!

The red dress


My mom made this stunning red velvet (yes, seriously – red velvet!) dress for my daughter. I am sadly just now getting to a few portraits of Peyton wearing it. Fortunately it was worth the wait – I was super thrilled with how these turned out. Here are just a couple – with the first being my absolute favorite. The rest are posted on my personal blog. She looks so grown up … why do they grow up so darn fast?!

Birthday Princess

This session was bittersweet for me because Miss J. was the first newborn I photographed. Her “first year” has come to an end waaay too quickly! It’s been amazing to capture her over this past year, she’s growing into such a beautiful little girl.

She was super serious today – so smiles were hard to come by. But I truly think it doesn’t matter when you have eyes as amazing as hers. They really tell it all!

Isn’t she sporting the cutest tutu? She is also the first kiddo to sit on my new barnwood floor 🙂 It’s the coolest!

Yup, like I said – her eyes are amazing – so dramatic in black & white.

Miss J. – it’s been an absolute pleasure to watch you grow over the past year. You are such a pretty little thing – Mommy & Daddy will be beating the boys away with sticks in a few years, I just know it!

a perfect angel





Angelic Miss A. is enrolled in the Sweet Beginnings Collection, and I can just tell we are going to get along perfectly over the next year. At only 10 days old, she couldn’t have been more cooperative – wonderfully curly and sleeping almost the entire time I was at her house for my visit. Mom & Dad were so accommodating as well – thank you for such a pleasant morning!
I seriously had a difficult time deciding which images to post to the blog – here are the five I ultimately settled on. I can’t wait for Mom & Dad to get a peek at the rest of them. Take care, get some sleep and I’ll see your family in 6 months!

Little Sailor

I think I’m in love with this little guy! At just 6 months, he’s already a perfect model. He couldn’t have been more happy and put up with everything we asked of him. And, seriously – those eyes … ahhh … just love them! PS – that’s Daddy’s Navy hat in that first portrait – sooo precious!

If you’ve ever had a baby session with me, you know I’m generally against photographing a pacifier. In this little man’s situation however – it’s really a part of who he is at this age. It seemed like a perfect addition to a few of the portraits (just a few!).


Mom, I’d say we definitely captured a few (ok, a lot!) of keepers. I’m super excited with our results and hope you are too! I can’t wait to see little J. in another 3 months, take care!

Book worm





At 18 months, Mr. B. definitely loves books! It was the cutest thing to see him sit down on his own to look through a few of his favorites. I’m in love with those first 2 images of him “reading.” He is such a cutie pie!
We captured these portraits at Chase Court in Mt. Vernon. Mom & Dad got married there – what a fantastic location for their son’s session! I can’t take credit for the idea or even for setting it up – Mom got special permission to use the historic location yesterday. It was a GORGEOUS building – tons of character and cool features. It was really special to have the opportunity to photograph B’s session there! Thanks Mom for the awesome idea!
