Rebecca Fox Starr is a recognized author, featured writer, blogger, and most importantly mother. I will be honest, when interviewing Rebecca, I wasn’t sure how to approach this story. I cannot relate. I’ve never walked in her shoes. Within minutes, she had me laughing and at ease. I found that I don’t have to walk in her shoes to understand her story. I immediately felt how warm, honest and energetic she was. I could not believe this was the same woman who just a few years ago, battled with postpartum depression. The passion in her voice and her story is captivating. She brings you right into her story, and she’s not shy about any of it. The truth can be a hard pill to swallow, but the truth is real. My time with Rebecca was inspiring. Below is her story, her truth. - Priscilla

I’ve known Laura for many years and have been coming to Little Nest since my oldest daughter was born. When Laura posted on Facebook that she was teaching an Intro to DSLR camera class, I was intrigued because it was being taught by Laura and I’ve always been a huge fan of her work.

Photography for me is huge and so important. When Little Nest announced that they were offering the DSLR photography class, I jumped on it because I love photography, but I haven’t had much time to expand on my knowledge on how to use my own camera.

At the beginning of class, before we even took our...

For 11 years, I’ve been walking through the doors of Little Nest for professional pictures of my family and children. One of my favorite things about Little Nest is walking through the doors of the adorable studio knowing that I can come there and capture a moment in time at that stage of my children’s lives. I have a gallery wall at home and I love that no matter which photographer we see, the quality is consistent so I’m able to easily swap out photos on my wall. The photographers are really great with my kids and they freeze moments in time that every mom wants to remember and hold onto.

A couple of weeks ago, I came back to try something new. This time, when I walked through the...

Throughout childhood, many families choose to take professional photos to capture a happy moment in time. From maternity photos to an annual holiday card, these photos can help highlight an event that may have otherwise been forgotten, and preserve these memories for years to come.

As many parents know, it’s hard work raising children, but time really does fly. If your young one is leaving the nest soon, for a new job, college, or another life event, it’s common to feel a little unsteadied. It may seem like you just brought them home from the hospital, and now they’re driving away as a young adult, with rich opportunities and excitement on the road ahead.

At Little Nest Portraits, we want to help you capture this moment in time before your loved ones leave the nest. Having photos at this stage of life is important for many reasons, and we want to give your family a photo that will be cherished forever, by kids and parents alike. Read on to learn some of the key reasons to book a session at Little Nest before you have an empty nest.
