There are special moments and then there are milestone moments. At The Nest Photography + Design we understand those milestone moments are the ones to preserve, cherish, and rememeber forever because they are simply irreplacable. We find value in your portraits as much as you do! Every portrait created is valuable not only to you and your family, but your future familes as well.

The Nest Photography + Design is a full service photography and design company primarily servicing Los Angeles County and Bakersfield, owned and operated by April Massirio. Within the past 12 years she has developed the skills, knowledge, and experience it takes to be a successful photographer, focusing on you and your baby as a top priority. Working with a variety of subjects and situations for portrait and commercial work, her ultimate goal is to meet your vision, preserve your history, and create unforgettable portraits.

Earning a Bachelors Degree in Professional Photography from Brooks Institute, April concentrated in Commercial/Advertising Photography and Portraiture. This background has given her the ability to create portraits that are not only professional but custom, creative, and contemporary. Her experience with clients is always involved and her attention to needs, wants, and expectations is what leaves clients happy, fulfilled, and life long friends! As an artist first, then a photographer, April adds natural, artistic elements to her portraits. Each is one of a kind and we know you'll be amazed at the quality and passion she puts into each portrait.

In Bakersfield you have see her commercial/editorial photography in Bakersfield Life Magazine and B Well Magazine. April designed and photographed all of B Well Magazine from Jan. 2012- May 2014, published by The Bakersfield Californian.

Beyond the photography is our design studio. We create custom designs for birth announcements, invitations, greeting cards, as well as custom templates for gallery wrapped canvas, photo books/ albums, and photo CD/DVD covers. Please contact us for more info on our design services!

The Nest Photogaphy + Design is a small group of creative, artistic, professionals who know how important your life is and how important it is to capture and preserve your legacy. Our photographers are available in Bakersfield and Los Angeles County without a travel fee. All services are available to Southern CA and abroad for those who are interested! We love a good plane ride!
