PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - A minority-owned business in Peoria is making a splash one photo at a time.

LaToya and Johnny Jorden say they were able to open their doors a few weeks ago with the help of the Minority Business Development Center on Peoria’s southside.

With the help of those resources, they chose Northwoods mall to open a ‘selfie studio’.

The couple says they would love to see more black-owned businesses in the area.

“We are a place to have fun, but it’s also a multi-use space for photographers, content creators, and brand ambassadors so it is a multi-use space for business-to-business transactions as well.”

They’re expecting a busy weekend with prom-goers already asking to come in and take pictures.
