Hi there! I am Nicole,  the photographer behind Rekart Photography! I have been posing newborns safely for 10+ years.  My clients have shared with me that when they walk into my home studio they feel at home. I offer a bump friendly closet for my  mom-to- be during our maternity sessions. I also have a boutique style for your sweet baby. I offer a line of newborn outfits, wraps and props.

I serve Franklin County, Missouri and surrounding areas. I specialize in maternity and newborn photography. From belly bumps to baby to milestone photos!
Maternity Photography
Maternity sessions are up to an hour long. Whether you are in my in-home studio or at a location of your choice. I offer a client closet for maternity sessions full of gorgeous dresses! I do not want you to feel rushed, if you decide to wear one of of my client closet maternity gowns I will schedule a complimentary consultation prior to your session. You will be able to come in and see which dress will fit your style the best so you feel comfortable and confident prior to your session! 
Newborn Photography
Your newborn is very important to me. I have had extensive training in newborn safety and posing, and I continue my training year round to assure your newborn is safe when I am working with them. I suggest scheduling your newborn portrait session between their first 10 days of life. Many families schedule their newborn session before baby arrives to be sure to have a place on my calendar. I can not wait to chat!

Nicole is more than an amazing photographer, she is an amazing human being!
She captures both the physical photo and the essence of the subject.

When you look at her pictures you see can see into the heart of the subject/subjects.
When you book with Nicole, you become her friend!
Highly recommend Rekart Photography!

Photography is absolutely what Nicole was meant to do! We had her do both our maternity and our newborn photos. She fulfills every aspect of an excellent photographer. She listened to what I envisioned and even providing props. She stayed on task making sure we got all of them done even allowing me to have outfit changes. Plus she provided bump friendly dresses for me to wear! We also included our dog in the photos. She came prepared with treats and lots of patience. Our newborn session was just as professional. As a first time mom, I was so anxious of what to expect, but right away Nicole eased my worries assuring me we would take our time to go at our baby’s pace. Her studio is so relaxing equipped with everything you can think of. All her costumes and props were so fun to choose from and she captured our son in every precious way! We will cherish these photos forever. Thank you, Nicole!!

Absolutely amazing work! Nicole is amazing and so accommodating! 10/10!

Our experience with Nicole has been amazing since we started! My son is now almost one and we just finished doing his cake smash studio session, but we started with Nicole when he was a newborn! All of our photos we have done with her have been nothing short of fabulous! We have done newborn sessions, a breastfeeding session, 6 month milestone session, a Christmas tree farm session, and a cake smash session. Nicole’s studio is so comfortable and cozy it just lets you relax and get the photos of your dreams done! The best part about her studio is that she has a bathtub, soap, lotion, towels etc and my little guy was able to take a bath after his messy cake smash! This was so much help so we didn’t have to drive home afterwards with a sticky messy kid! Nicole herself is absolutely amazing. She’s so king, helpful and reassuring. She makes the whole photo process so fun and relaxing! Not stressful at all!
