Laura Novak Meyer

I started my career in photography over ten years ago, with a few modest cameras and a passion for documenting real-life moments in a fresh, natural way.

After a successful career as an independent photographer, I started a retail chain in the Philadelphia area called Little Nest Portraits, a boutique photography company that specializes in innovative children’s portraiture. With two high-visibility retail studio locations situated around the Philadelphia metro area, we are honored to serve thousands of families each year. Little Nest Portraits was recently voted the “Best Children’s Portrait Studio” by Main Line Today and we’ve been featured in Philadelphia Magazine, CBS Talk Philly, and Good Day Philly on FOX. Through training and coaching of eighteen women in the Little Nest home stores, almost all of whom are moms, I strive to create an environment that allows women to do what they love while balancing their families at home.

Today, my most recent endeavor is to bring Little Nest Portraits to partner locations around the country through franchising. From growing a small photography operation out of my one-bedroom apartment many years ago, to bringing Little Nest to major cities across the country, I'm passionate about bringing support to others on the exciting path of entrepreneurship. My entrepreneurship advice has been featured in publications such as Entrepreneur Magazine, American Express Open, Web.com small busienss forum and I was recently selected as a 2014 Brava Winner from SmartCEO Magazine.
