About A. Dannette Photography
Photographing women since 2011.
Hey girl! I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a bachelor's in Fine Arts in photography. I’ve been taking photos since I was twelve and cut my teeth in the darkroom and shot film before it was cool.
I’ve done weddings, portraits, events, babies, headshots...I was even a manager for a JC Penny’s portrait studio! I’ve specialized in boudoir photography since 2011.
My work has been featured in local publications such as the Times of Acadiana, The Current, Developing Lafayette, Out to Lunch and Boudoir International. Scroll down to see where we've been featured in the news!
I am a member of The705, Junior League of Lafayette, Lafayette Women's Chamber of Commerce and an area chair for Festival International.
Do you provide outfits?
We have a handful of items but please bring your outfits along with you. We want you to feel AMAZING in whatever you wear to your shoot and only you can find the perfect outfit that’s great for you.
Need ideas? During your planning meeting, we’ll give you all the tips and tricks you need to help you prepare for your shoot. We have years of experience and expertise in this area. We even encourage you to make a Pinterest board dedicated to your shoot to gather ideas.
Need ideas? Check out our blog post on what to wear.
How long is the process?
Your preview party is scheduled a few days after your shoot. During this time you will place your order.
Orders take 4-6 weeks, depending on the keepsake collection. We encourage you to schedule at least a month out if you’re shooting for a specific date. However, we do book up quickly, so please check availability.
Do you provide payment plans?
The classic boudoir experience session fee is due at the time of booking. Since products are ordered separately, we can split up the payments of keepsake collections.
Does makeup include false lashes?
Yass queen! False lashes may sound scary but they make a huge difference in your images.
What days do you shoot?
We schedule shoots in the morning on Monday & Wednesday. Select premium Sunday spots are limited. We try to be as accommodating as possible. Take a vacation day and enjoy yourself!
How do you ensure privacy?
We respect that some women may not want their beautiful faces all over the internet. During your reveal party, you sign a model release indicating how comfortable you are with us using your images. We never share images without your permission and we use a professional print lab. All the women you see here have given us permission to use the photos.
Where do you shoot?
We have a studio in central Lafayette, LA. If you’re looking for a more editorial look, we also have a larger studio space in downtown Lafayette.
Can I bring a friend or spouse?
Hey, if it makes you feel more comfortable, go for it. Our studio space is small so we ask that if you want to bring a friend that you limited it to one person. Adults only, no little ones please. However, we find that bringing a friend can sometimes be a distraction. Also, ladies leave your man at home. This club is full of boss babes only. *Please note that due to COVID-19, we are not allowing anyone other than the cleint in the studio at this time.
Can I do my own hair and makeup?
The creative retainer include professional hair and makeup. If it wasn’t included and you had to do it yourself, it wouldn’t be the same pampering experience! But if you have a person you love, you can exchange makeup artists for an additional 30 minutes of shooting. No discounts for not using our stylist.
Can I just get digital negatives?
Some of our collections include digital files and are available for purchase as a la carte options but we do not include them in your session rate. We excel in offering finished, tangible artwork for you to keep for years to come.
