"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."

"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."
