Culture + Values

We pride ourselves on an amazing culture at Little Nest built on very important vowel-ues. These values guide our day-to-day decision making and make Little Nest a delightful place to be!


Here's what we value (in an easy-to-remember AEIOU format):


  • We are honest + authentic in all of our interactions.  A healthy emotional climate built on authenticity empowers, motivates and unifies.
  • We value and prioritize genuine, real moments in the photographs we take.
  • We act in the spirit of partnership and collaboration with one another.
  • Healthy debates are welcomed and valued as we look for solutions, not problems.


  • We are continually curious and love to learn new things.  We share a passion for outstanding photographic quality.
  • Every single guest is treated with the highest level of care and consideration as if they were our own family member.
  • Complacency stinks!  We push above the norm and always look to raise the creativity bar.


  • We do the harder right, even (especially) when no one is looking.
  • We learn from our mistakes, and own up to them when they happen. We take responsibilty, and then move on quickly without keeping score.
  • We question actions when they seem inconsistent with our values.


  • We are part of a changing, transforming industry where we act and shift quickly.
  • Problems are always to be seen as opportunities turned inside out.
  • We assume the best in others and stay aligned with a focus on performance.
  • We're open to trying new ideas, and prioritize progress over perfection.


  • We rise and fall as a team: you are always part of a bigger picture.
  • We are positive, passionate, and always take extra time to support one another.
  • We are mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, enthusiasts, volunteers, and partners.  We are at our best when we make time for each and every facet of who we are.
