Our Story


Laura Novak Meyer

Little Nest Founder

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 and lonely. As much as she loved photographing clients, being a solo entrepreneur lacked a sense of community, and she longed for more frequent connection with those she had developed relationships with.

“Our success is a result of an incredible team made up of driven individuals who have a passion for empowering other women pursue their passion while honoring their desire for a deeper connection in their lives.” – Laura Novak

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. What started as career in offering high quality, modern, unique imagery, has now expanded into a variety of methods to develop community through photography.

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 brings people together through photography. 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. Laura loves Jesus, strong coffee, and living in southeastern Pennsylvania with her husband and two young sons.
