OUR STUDIO

Our amazing studio is located on the corner of Ninth and Kossuth streets, just south of Lafayette's downtown district in the historic Ninth Street Hill Neighborhood. With two sides of the building covered with large glass windows, we have amazing natural light during the daytime.

Full of amenities for all of our clients, we have a consultation and viewing area with a large screen TV, luxurious seating, on-site parking, and a private bathroom. The studio also offers a custom built, vintage barn wood backdrop, exclusively available to our clients.

For photographers, we have a variety monthly and hourly rental options. Studio lighting gear also available for rent including strobes, stands, light modifiers, backdrops and stands, and an inflatable mattress. A sound system is also available to play music or white noise during sessions if needed.
