Thank you for visiting Luminant Photography’s website! My name is Victoria Rayburn, and I am a Lafayette, Indiana family photographer. I was thrilled to start this venture in 2015. While I have a full-time career that I love, Luminant allows me to have fun with my art background and spend time with wonderful people and families, like you!

About Victoria

Writing and art are my passions, which is why I majored in English and minored in art in college. During the day, I am the Assistant Content Manager at Treefrog Marketing and Communications. At night and on the weekends, I am a photographer.

My photography career began when I started serving as an assistant to Carrie Bower, co-owner of Kindred Photo & Video. I still serve as an assistant and am very thankful for Carrie’s continued mentorship and friendship.

Why “Luminant”?

Luminant Photography received its name for two reasons:

  • Christ is the light of the world. John 8:12 says, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Christ is my savior, and I hope to use my business  to share His light with others.
  • Photography is all about light. In fact, it literally means “writing with light.” Whether you’re talking about exposure or color, lighting is an important aspect of every form of art. I had a painting professor in college who encouraged students to squint at their paintings to make sure there was a balance of lights and darks in every piece of work. Years later, I still use this tip in everything I create, including photos.

A Few More Facts

If we’re going to spend an hour or two taking photos together, I think it’s only fair if you know who you’ll be spending time with.

  • I’m saved by Jesus Christ. God has made Luminant a possibility, and I hope that my actions always reflect Christ’s love, especially during photo sessions.
  • I married my best friend when I was 21. Zach often serves as my assistant and may tease your kids to break out the giggles.
  • We don’t have children, but we do have a Goldendoodle whom I love far too much. Her name is Hattie, and I really wish I could take her everywhere with me.
  • I’m a coffee addict. I know I have a problem, but I don’t intend to fix it. I promise to show up to your session fully caffeinated and ready to go!
  • I’m 5′ 1″. Nobody wants their photos taken from below, so I bring a step stool to every adult session.
