Introducing The Little Deer

Capture childhood at its sweetest!

Located in Winston-Salem, The Little Deer offers a unique photography studio concept exclusively for independent sitters through age 6. Beautiful window light makes for joyful, warm images no matter the temperature outside. No scary strobes or equipment to trip over, no cumbersome props or sets. The relaxed, open environment provides a cozy space for fun and play. Small children with busy hands can choose from an assortment of natural wood toys, or bring some balloons and a special lovey from home to commemorate a special milestone. They will never be this little again!

Sessions are now booking by appointment only on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Go to to schedule your session today! You can also visit them on Instagram @thelittledeernc.
