The Studio West Seattle


about us

Please pardon our site's appearance - we are working hard on getting up to date!

Our Space

Say goodbye to awkward studio portraits with outdated poses and say hello to a photo experience tailored to your needs! The Studio is located right on Alki Beach on the corner of 59th Ave SW and Alki Ave SW. We have a front room with examples of our work and a studio space in the back where we shoot.

We offer both studio and on location photography for people, pets, and products. 

Friendly Disclaimer: We understand that the previous tenants of our space sold gelato. Unfortunately, we have no gelato.

Step 1


Call us or fill out this form and secure a time for your session. You will receive a contract and invoice via email. A signed contract is needed to secure your date and time. The session fee is due on the day of the shoot. We accept major credit cards, cash, and checks.


If possible, choose a day off where you won't be rushing from meeting to meeting. If you require hair and makeup services, this is a good time to book that as well. We can recommend a few local salons if needed.





Our studio will be ready for you by the time of your reservation. During your hour you are free to change outfits or have us change backdrops.

For pet sessions, the hour includes time for winding down, potty breaks, and cleaning up of any messes that may occur. 


Make sure you arrive a few minutes early to relax and take care of payments and any questions you may have. 

We have a reserved parking spot directly next to The Studio for you to park in as Alki parking can get rather competitive and time consuming.



Step 3


Once your images are edited, we invite you to return to The Studio for your ordering session. Here is where you can purchase digital files, prints, or frames. Pricing for all products will be emailed to you prior to your ordering session so you can prepare accordingly. Payment is due the day of your ordering session, payment plans are available for larger orders.


If you plan on purchasing frames, please come to your ordering session with measurements and pictures of your walls. This will ensure that you are purchasing the correct sizes for your space.
