Hi there! I am Nicole,  the photographer behind Rekart Photography!  I am married to my best friend; we recently celebrated our 25th Anniversary and have two daughters! I live on coffee, baby snuggles and editing, but when I am not working you will find me spending time with my fur babies, with my family or shopping at Target.  I look forward to meeting you soon!

About me


Top Newborn Photographers in St. Louis

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 you will have my full attention. We also offer a client closet for maternity sessions full of gorgeous dresses! And because I do not want you to feel rushed if you choose to wear one of of my client closet maternity gowns I will schedule a complementary consultation prior to your session. You will be able to come in and see which gown 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 14 days of life. Many families schedule their newborn session before baby arrives to be sure to have a place on our calendar. I can not wait to chat about your newborn session!

We are a family of 7. We have used Nicole for our youngest 2 newborn photos and haven’t stopped using her since! She does all our family photos and yearly mini sessions for the kids! I can not recommend her enough! Nicole and Danielle are the sweetest ladies you will ever meet!

In April 2017, I decided I wanted a birth photographer. Danielle and Nicole were referred to me. From the first time I met them, I knew that I was "home". They made sure to capture my maternity pictures, the birth of our daughter, and my daughter's first year perfectly. They listened to me and were so patient with all of my crazy ideas. They have been our photographer since which includes a second birth photographed by them. Our family pictures are better because of them and their ideas. I am so thankful that they were referred to us and Im so grateful for that day in 2017. When you book with Danielle and Nicole, you get more than just a photographer. You get a friend, a mom, a sister, and a woman who understands the essence of keeping the memory of our babies as babies before they grow up. I can't recommend them enough and I know I will never be able to thank them.

Nicole and Danielle were made to be photographers! Their personalities make them fun to be around, and easy to let loose! Their work is beautiful, unique, and pure. I will continue to use them for all my photography needs!
