About Us

We know what it’s like when you’re rushing out the door and don’t have time to finish your make-up or to change your kids into the cute outfits you set aside specifically for the session. Little Nest is here for you. Take a deep breath, relax and know that we have all the amenities to take care of whatever life throws your way. We have everything you need from healthy snacks (for parents, too!) and coffee to a diaper changing table. One of our friendly team members will even play with your kids so you can have a few minutes to yourself to finish getting ready for your session.

So, who are we? We are a boutique children and family photography studio located in the heart of downtown Montclair, just steps away from Church Street. We specialize in maternity, newborn, and family photography, both in-studio and outdoors at the park or beach. And, after receiving requests for other photography needs, we now offer headshots and fun headshot happy hours! We take great pride in the quality of our photography, the images we produce, the wall art we create, and the experiences we provide. Whether a guest is looking for digitals, a framed image for a grandparent, or an elaborate wall art collection, we’re here to make it easy and fun. Our goal? We want expectant moms, kids and parents to enjoy a warm and inviting space where they can let loose and be themselves…that’s when the magic really happens! We know life can be unpredictable at times, but when guests walk into Little Nest, they can rest assured that they will always be greeted with a smile and have a relaxed and enjoyable experience. From start to finish, we want our guests to feel comfortable and taken care of. Think of our studio as an oasis for adults and kids to enjoy :)

Brittany’s thoughts about the studio: Our Little Nest team is a family. Everyone is passionate about what they do…and it shows! It’s a place where people love where they work. Plus, to me, the studio is more than just a place to have beautiful photos taken; it’s a home where you’re always welcome and where memories are created. I love nothing more than when kids run into the studio, act like they own the place, and when the parents chat and hang out…it means I’ve created a place of comfort for everyone!
