Little Nest founder Laura Novak Meyer began her photography career at age 23 and met IT with swift success.
Her fresh sensibility and talent for putting clients at ease led to a successful business and ample recognition in the media and within the photography industry. But all of the success left her lacking. As much as she loved photographing clients, she had other passions that she couldn't address as a solo entrepreneur, including mentoring new talent and fostering creative community.
She also saw a missing element in the photography marketplace. Social photography was breaking new boundaries, thanks to real-time sharing via Pinterest, tumblr and Instagram. But for families with children who wanted high quality, modern, unique imagery, the options were limited to either mass-market chain studios that prized volume over ambiance, or extremely expensive custom photo sessions only available to a small percentage of families.
Why couldn't there be something else?
A boutique photography studio that offered stellar imagery in a relaxed atmosphere, where families could slow down and enjoy the experience. A committed team of artists with the common goal of capturing clients' stories in a collaborative, creative atmosphere. An artistic philosophy that blended classic portraiture technique with spontaneity and emotion. On these premises, Little Nest was born. Little Nest Portraits has expanded into a national brand, while always keeping those core values at heart.
Today, Little Nest Portraits is the lucky recipient of regular praise from our studio guests and noteworthy buzz in the national press. Laura shares her advice about finding joy through entrepreneurship on her personal blog, the Joy-Preneur.
