our studio

Years ago when we first started out, we met with clients in our living room. While that worked out fine for the first few years, we always dreamt that we would one day have our own little space to meet with clients away from the hustle and bustle of home life. Over the last 8 years Creative Look Studios has had it’s own home. A place to meet with you, a place to project and share images with you, rather than just over a computer or tablet, and a studio space for us to be creative in. You may remember our cute little shop in downtown Middleton, though we loved that space we recently moved down the street to a new location in exchange for a spot that offers some things we were missing at the last location. Like parking for you! We would love to have you come into the studio, and get to know us a bit more.  We want to hear more about what you are planning, and how we may be able to document your story; whether its for a portrait session with your family or for your upcoming wedding. So let’s set up a time to chat and get to know each other more!


Our Studio is located at 3510 Parmenter St. Middleton, WI 53562.  We share a building with REA Engineering and our entrance can be found in the rear parking lot.
