Louis Chaudet was the son of Anne & Albert Chaudet who were professional photographers. They opened a photographic studio in Pottawatomie County, Kansas about 1890. The were active in several places in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska and had a railroad photocar. They had a studio in Pasadena in 1910 and in Long Beach in 1920. They retired about 1930. The following site shows a picture of Ann and her daughter, who was also a photographer on a motorcycle. http://www.historicphotoarchive.com/caps6/00529.html I researched this information as a result of a newspaper item in the Colton Courier of June 11, 1906 which stated that the Chaudets were in Colton making postcards. Sure would love to find some of those postcards!
