The Studio

A rentable, natural-light photography studio by Sara Coffin

Welcome to The Studio, a rentable, natural-light photography and small-event space located halfway between Raleigh, NC and Pinehurst, NC.

The Studio is located downtown Sanford on the second floor (walk-up access only) of a historic two-story building; the downstairs portion is occupied by Sweet Southern Home and Design.

In addition to approximately 1000 sq feet of open photo and event space, there are five neutral backdrops, two C-stands, a full-body reflector and a selection of seating props to accommodate your client's style and needs. Additionally the space includes a work-desk for up-to-six people, a changing room, and upstairs bathroom.
