A photography session costs $70.00 for the grounds at the LSU Rural Life Museum and $70.00 for Windrush Gardens. If you wish to take pictures in both sections, then the cost is $140.00. Since photography sessions are dependent upon the weather, all sessions are paid the day of your appointment at the LSU Rural Life Museum’s gift shop.
The entire property of Burden Museum and Gardens closes at 5:00pm. So all photography sessions must be scheduled between operating hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm. No one is allowed to stay on the property after 5:00pm for a photography session.
Please be aware that the Museum Gift Shop, where photography appointments are purchased, closes daily at 4:30pm. If you are running late, please call the Museum Gift Shop at 225-765-2437, otherwise you will miss your appointment.
