"Our family session at Little Nest was truly a five star experience!! The studio was warm and inviting and the staff were very professional and accommodating. We have never done an indoor family session before, and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out!!"
- Amber Elalami


"I'm still in awe at the beauty that's Little Nest. It's like taking photos in the comfort of your own home yet with the hospitality of a five star hotel. Seriously. Our photos are definitely boutique quality and the raves from friends and family have been beyond! We can't wait to take more photos with Little Nest - Charlotte."
- Brittny E.


"Little Nest Portraits is amazing! The photographer was so good with our newborn and toddler and captured BEAUTIFUL images of them! They were professional, kind, and took their time. There was a quiet, private and comfortable place to feed our newborn, and the studio was clean and child-friendly. I was very impressed not only with the talent of the photographer, but also with the customer service! They treat you like family."
