It’s the annual ritual many parents dread: lugging the kids to the local chain store or mall for those cookie-cutter portraits. Delaware-based photographer Laura Novak offers a far more pleasant and unique experience at Little Nest Portraits in Glen Mills. “I wanted to create a space where kids can be kids, parents can be comfortable and relaxed, and every family has access to individual and unique works of art,” says Novak, who has a vast roster of high-profile clients throughout the East Coast. “This type of studio is filling a void in the market.”
Little Nest is kid-friendly but not at all gimmicky. Novak’s team of professional photographers are moms or moms-to-be who know how to get the best out of their subjects—from infants to high school grads. “Our mission is to provide affordable, timeless images that catch the sparkle within the kids,” says Novak.
Aside from the downloadable gallery of favorite shots artfully assembled after each shoot, Little Nest offers a variety of unique ways to display images, from pillows and ottomans to charms, sterling silver necklaces and key chains. Holiday cards, birth announcements, custom albums and keepsake boxes are also popular options.
