We have 2 reserved (free) parking spots in the parking lot at the rear of the building, which are marked for Danielle Earl Photography during working hours. We kindly request you only use those two spots, as the rest are reserved for other units in the building. Additional guests are welcome to use the 2 hour street parking on Duke St. or the Region of Waterloo lot, located across the road (beside the Rumpel Felt Co. building).


On evenings (after 5PM) and weekends (Saturday/Sunday), parking in the rear lot is open on a first come, first served basis, but must be shared with the yoga studio on the ground floor.


The Region of Waterloo lot on Victoria St. costs $2.40/hour or $12/day and can be paid for using a credit card or HONK mobile. HONK accepts credit card and other mobile payment services such as Apple Pay. 


We kindly ask that you do not park in the Kauffman Lofts parking lot - this is a private lot, reserved for the people who live there.

With the exception of registered service animals, we are not permitting animals in the studio at this time. This may change in the future, but for now, we ask that you respect this rule.


The expectation is that service animals in the studio are appropriately trained and that the studio will remain clean, and any mess or damage will be cleaned and/or repaired by the person booking the studio. Messes not cleaned up will be subject to a $200 cleaning fee.
