Baker's Studio Washington, NC

I am doing research on the Laughinghouse family in the Vanceboro, Craven County & Beaufort County area and noticed on the back of several old family photos from around 1916 that they were from Baker's Studio in Washington, NC. I did some research and found out that it was located at 110 W. Main St. and was the property of WH Baker.His wife is noted as Tallulah Baker. I found this from a 1916 city directory for Washington, NC. I know that families members normally get photos taken were each family member will have their picture taken at the same time or together. I found out from a relative that there were a number of photos that my family had and at some point the photos were "dumped" when they moved to a new place. Of course this is really sad that someone would do this. I would really like to get a photo of my great grandfather Edward Laughinghouse (b. 1842 d. 1927 Vanceboro, NC)or others in his family. I have a photo of his granddauthter Bealuh Heath. She was the daughter of William H. Heath and Maggie Laughinghouse. I thought that perhaps the Baker family descendants may have records of who had their photo taken at the Baker Studio and may have negatives available. If anyone has done this type of thing before or has any info on this particular studio please contact me. I have traced forward on this family some but thought I would post here first before going any further. Thanks for any info you could provide.
