The Lumen Room is a large natural light photography studio in East Dallas, though we will use lights as needed. There are multiple couches and chairs, and a wall of windows. There are white, black, and a few other background colors. This is a great blank slate for any kind of shoot! Best of all, we don't have to worry about the weather. I will book the studio and attach the studio fees to your invoice. Fees are $75 an hour, $275 for 4 hours, or $375 for a full day. It is subject to availability. Pets are welcome!
Photographing in your home is not just about setting, but about preserving the memories of where your family lives right now. Our best shots will come from clutter-free backgrounds full of natural light. Families piled on beds and children in their room are some of my favorite and make the best storytelling photographs. If your home lacks a good natural light area, let's choose a brighter location.
