This was my second time renting studio space from Sherlyn. She was very friendly and professional to work with. The studio itself was very clean and had great natural light. Overall I was very happy with the space and the way it was managed. It was a great experience for both myslef and my clients.

Sherlyn and her partner were very accommodating and welcoming. The space is wonderful for anyone that needs space for photography, shots or anything similar. I would definitely come here again for another shoot and recommend it to any creative out there.

My experience at this studio was one of the best i've ever had! It was very easy to find and conveniently right next to a starbucks which got me through some long hours of work! Sherlyn & her team are more than accomodating offering everything they say they offer and more. Will definitely be back!
