Studio Sessions

  • No sitting fees—the shoot itself is free!
  • Sessions are allotted up to a full hour in a private, spacious studio.
  • No hard sells—we’re here to listen help guide you to the most economical solution.
  • We have a professional photo lab onsite so your prints are in your hands before you leave.
  • Pets are welcome by appointment (service animals are always welcome).
  • We do international passports and visa photos!


  • Arrive at (or no more than 10 minutes prior to) your scheduled appointment.
  • Plan to spend between one and two hours at our location. While you are allotted up to a full hour in the studio if needed, most sessions typically wrap in 20-30 minutes. As a convenience, sessions are usually followed within a few minutes by a presentation and portrait selection that typically takes around the same amount of time as your sitting (we can schedule a separate viewing upon request).
  • With a photo lab on-site, your prints (now up to 24×36) are in your hands before your leave.


We don’t charge a sitting fee, so there is no charge for the number of subjects in your session (please update your session information with any additions, or schedule a longer appointment if we can expect eight or more individuals, even if they are not participating).


Solid colors are recommended, but we encourage creativity


  • Thin, tight stripes tend to create distracting moiré patterns.
  • Bold patterns can become dated quickly.
  • Jewelry with large reflective surfaces can result in unintentional photobombs.
  • Glitter gets everywhere.
  • Shoes that scuff or scratch the floor.

Coordinate colors and styles. Everyone in your group should dress to be photographed, even if they don’t expect to.

As some poses may be full-length, please make sure everyone is wearing matching shoes and socks.

Arriving dressed and ready in your first outfit and bringing outfit changes will help you get the most out of your session.


Our pricing is readily available on our website and in-studio but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Our associates are here to help you get exactly what you need in the most economical way.

Ask your friends and family what size frames they have/would like and/or what sizes and subjects they need ahead of time. The smoothest sessions are those that work off a list of sittings and sizes needed.

Opt for frames with mats. Framing photographs directly against the glass is terrible for them and a mat just looks prettier anyways.

Or… think outside the frame. We offer a wide variety of alternative presentation options (canvas, metal prints, foam mounting, etc.) and photo products. Ask an associate for details.

We offer a digital copy of the entire edited session with a print/digital license. With this, you can post your images to social media, print them at the lab of your choice (we do offer lab service pricing for prints in-house as well), send them to friends and family to get their own prints, or most importantly, keep an archival copy.


Bring your cap and gown if you have one (we keep most schools’ caps, gowns, and tassels on-hand, just in case), casual outfit(s), and any uniforms or equipment for sports and/or activities (marching band, football, etc.). We can knock out all of your senior portraits in one sitting, even if you don’t purchase them all at once.

If we are doing your cap and gown portraits, wear what you’re required to wear under your cap and gown on graduation day, including dress shoes. This is usually a white summer dress, dress shoes, and jewelry for girls and a white dress shirt, tie, dress pants, and dress shoes for guys.

If you already have your class ring, wear it. Some shots will be tight enough to see it in detail.

If you have other children in the house, we highly recommend buying all of your frames at the same time so that when it comes their turn to graduate, they’ll match.


We do progressive maternity shoots! We can take a shot each month, from the time you find out to newborn, so you can track your progress.

Outdoors & On-Location

We’ve pre-scouted locations around Hampton Roads to offer a variety of environments to enhance your portrait session, including parks, piers, beaches, barns, botanical gardens, and much more. We’re also available for on-location photography services, whether they be in-home, on-the-job, or a place that’s special to you.

Weather: We will do our best to keep an eye on conditions and proactively contact you in the event we expect inclement weather. We can always reschedule, or cancel if there is no other time that will work.

Payment: We typically ask that the balance be paid prior to the start of the session. Your can make payments at any time through the “appointment details” link of your appointment confirmation or during business hours at our studio in Harbour View. If you have any trouble, please contact us at (757) 686-2011 or [email protected]


  • Arrive at the location at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to check in, get ready, and get directions to the area(s) we will be shooting.
  • Plan to spend at least a full hour on-location. While you are allotted up to a full hour of shooting, most sessions typically wrap in 30-45 minutes.
  • Most locations offer a wide variety of activities for all ages. Feel free to make a day of it after our session concludes!
  • Your session will be uploaded to a password-protected online gallery within 72 hours, where you can download, view, share, and order from your shoot.


Solid colors are recommended, but we encourage creativity.

Consider the weather.


  • Thin, tight stripes tend to create distracting moiré patterns.
  • Bold patterns can become dated quickly.
  • Jewelry with large reflective surfaces can result in unintentional photobombs.
  • Glitter gets everywhere.
  • Heels may or may not be appropriate due to ground conditions.

Unless otherwise requested, some poses may be full-length. Please make sure everyone is wearing matching shoes and socks.

Arriving dressed and ready in your first outfit and bringing outfit changes will help you get the most out of your session.

We have a changing tent to allow for clothing changes, or many of our locations have public restrooms you can use.


Our pricing is readily available on our website and in-studio but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Our associates are here to help you get exactly what you need in the most economical way.

Ask what sizes and poses are needed ahead of time. The smoothest sessions are those that work off a list of sittings and sizes needed.

Outdoor and on-location sessions include a digital copy of the entire session with edited favorites and a print/digital license and access to our Lab Service pricing for prints in-house. With this, you can post your image(s) to social media, print through us or the lab of your choice, send to friends and family to get their own prints, submit digitally, or most importantly, keep an archival copy.

QueenJasmine Princesmom Aytch
Outstanding portraits. We are always so pleased with the wonderful staff and beautiful photos
Jenny Melms Thompson
Shots is wonderful. The service and the prices are exceptional.
Sandy Williams
We had an amazing time at Shotz. The staff worked so well with our three kids and the pictures came out phenomenally. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!
Andrea Barker
My daughter is incredibly shy, they did great getting her warmed up and playing with toys before the photo shoot. This was the first time photos weren't a fight with her! Also very reasonably priced.
Heather Hunley Criner
I searched for a local portrait studio to have graduation pictures taken for our son’s high school graduation. We prefer to support local businesses when possible. Especially when it is for an item or service which can add personalized, individual attention to details that most large corporations cannot. From my first phone call to inquire about package options and appointment times, I was impressed. Kenny was very polite, professional and patient as he answered all of my questions. He offered several suggestions to try to best for our needs. During the appointment, Terry immediately check us in and set up the studio for our session. She asked various questions and opened up our son to reveal his personality in every shot. Attention to detail, as well as explaining to process and why certain poses are taken a certain way allowed for each moment to be best captured! When our session was finished we were able to view our photos. The option to choose right away or come back after we decided was given. Terry made suggestions and pointed out details and subtleties in different shots to assist in choosing without being pushy. We left our session pleased and excited to share with our family to make the final decisions. Digital rights are also available. Once we were ready to order, we went in, were able to mix and match poses and sizes on multiple sheet options. Framed collages are also available. Their pricing is competitive and very affordable to meet any budget. I never take the time to write a review unless I am extremely pleased, and impressed beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Shotz Portrait Studio! Thank you again Terry and Kenny! We look forward to coming back!
Dina Buck McCreary
Great job ! My sister found this studio through groupon. Jeff handled my nephew's grad photoshoot like a champ! ( He has a great sense of humor which made his smile so much brighter) Prices are reasonable. They had baby gate for my other busy 1 yr old nephew! That was very convenient. Will be coming back.
Jazmen Carter
Family picture session, with a 7 month, close to bedtime... sounds a little risky right? Well not with Shotz Portrait Studio! We were blown away by our entire experience... from the professionalism to the charismatic patience of the photographer and all to be topped off by the perfection of our final images. We have tried a handful of photographers in the Hampton Roads area over the past 5 years and nothing comes close this! They even show their support by offering a military discount! Seriously I have spread the word about this amazing company and cannot wait to use them in the near future for our sons first birthday shoot!
Brittany Sawyer
Kimberly Nunez
Jan Horton
I had a great 1st time experience with Shotz. They did an excellent job with my 25th birthday pictures. I would definitely recommend them and I like that it is a local, family owned business.
Danielle Batten
I was so impressed with our photographer!! He was so creative and great with children! I would definitely recommend!!
Alysia Eisel
Morgan Enzor
We did outdoor family photos and indoor 1st Communion photos. Best photography we've ever had!! Excellent customer service!
Jessie Dame
I cannot thank Terry enough for taking the time to scan my old pictures and make them into 8x10's for a memorial table at my son's wedding next week. I have been to several locations trying to get this done and within minutes she created my pictures. Terry has wonderful customer service and is warm and caring. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Leslie Klein Wheeler
Marguerite Williams
Great, great,great and great! My family and I really enjoyed the studio, they didn't not disappoint us! Just so happen I searched for a picture studio last minute on Monday after failed attempts and a cancelled appt over the holiday weekend. I was desperately looking for a same day appt, so I looked for other studios than just ones I knew. And Shotz came right up! And I'm so glad it did, I guess it was meant to be the whole time. Definitely will recommend and we are going back !
Tiara Dickson
Jasmine Tonique
We went for senior pictures . It was a terrific experience - 2 outfit changes, cap and gown and formal ka take for less then half the price of most competitors - plus we have a disk with permission to print what we want. And did I mention they fixed a few stray hairs and with a touch of a button - definitely recommend checking them out.
Judy Gardner
This was our very first visit to a Photography Studio and we had such a blast!!! Our photographer was Jeff & Hope helped out too. They were both very professional, helpful, and patient. We got some AMAZING photos and I entered my son in their Cutest Kid Contest. Very talented family-owned business. We will definitely be back for family, Easter/Christmas, and "just because" photos in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Nancy Van Buren
My family has been going to Shotz for over 2 years now and we love them! Every experience is amazing and fun. My now 6 year old daughter loves all the props she gets to "play" with. My 10 month old loves them, too! The photographers are incredibly creative and they set up and take gorgeous photos that we will treasure forever! And after 2 years of portraits, none of our photos look the same (something I can't say for other studios)!
Kristin Glander
WOW! What a great studio and photographer. Kenny is fantastic. He did a wonderful job for our family of 10 that included 4 under 4 years old. He is very patient with the kids and made sure we got the shots we wanted. Terry the owner is a wonderful person to work with. We traveled 1 hour to their studio and it was worth every minute and mile! Don't waste your time and money anywhere else.
Chris Goodman
I took my daughter in for her kindergarten graduation pictures. The session went better than I expected. The photo selection process was easy. I will return to Shotz for my family pictures.
Katina Myers Afocx
Professional and fun staff. I didn't know how to pose and they helped give unique ideas that made my pictures better than I expected
Aysha Barber
Teaira Bulaski Hawley
I love their customer service. They are not pushy sales people. They're very welcoming. I've never been dissatisfied with any of the pictures I've had taken there. In a nutshell they're fast, friendly, and affordable.
Ciara Lassiter
I love these folks and I know you will too. They'll make you feel like family. Can't speak highly enough of them.
Diane Kuras
OMG I don't know where to start. My 10 mnt old son never smiles for no one but me. They had him laughing and smiling I end up buying all the pictures. He was enter in the cutest baby contest. I hope he wins. Can't wait to do his 1st b day pic there in March. Cake smash ones at that. Great place. I just love them.
Veronica Robinson Green
We took our family photos there today they did a awesome job keeping my toddlers attention and getting them to smile and laugh we will be coming back soon for more photos.
Sharde Organ
They are so great with children! The staff is friendly and professional, and love all of the different portrait options and all of the props they use! Very creative! Will definitely be coming back!
Corinne Powell
Another successful family Christmas picture!!!! We had 8 people to photo and the staff was very patient and honored our request for a Brady-type photo!!! Thanks again and see you next year!!
Leni Nevels Jones
Great, curteous staff. The photographers are great with children! Second year in a row getting great photos!
Shana Patton
Our blended family had pictures done of the 5 kids for the first time over the long Thanksgiving weekend and we couldn't be happier! The pictures turned out GREAT, the staff was professional and courteous, and best of all, we were able to take home all of our pictures with us!! Kenny had a way of relating to the kids so that they would smile and laugh during the photo shoot. Afterwards he spent a great deal of time with me to be sure I ordered all of the pictures I needed and to make any necessary touch ups. Extremely happy customer! I cannot say enough good things about the staff and our experience there. Thank you Kenny and the rest of the Shotz family!!
Michelle Superczynski Hurst
Our son had his senior pictures taken at Shotz, not only were the pictures fantastic, your photographers made sure to take the time to get perfect pictures of his poi (spinning light sticks)! That is one of his favorite hobbies, and you guys taking the time to really perfect the lighting and action shots meant a lot to us. You've got a customer for life! Great job!!
Mary Lockwood
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful experiences we have had the opportunity of experiencing with Shotz! My granddaughters 2nd Birthday, 5 generations photos, Christmas photos, now senior pictures! Our next will be granddaughters 3rd birthday and Christmas. Everyone has always been so accommodating and patient with us. Your pricing is awesome. Looking forward to our next visit.

Had our first session there today. I loved the entire experience, easy to make appointment, lots of shots, took their time to get perfect pictures of my little girl. I will be back again and again!
Amanda C. Peterson
We hadn't done family pictures in over seven/eight years I knew Shotz was close to my home and kept saying I needed to get an appointment scheduled, I finally did online that was simple. We arrived and though at first we felt the young man who emerged from the back seemed to be having a bad day when he called us back to begin our session he was a little more friendly. Our session began and we took many pictures then we viewed our photos and I wanted them all. The deal they were running was a great buy the CD with all out photos for $125 can't be that!!! I would definitely recommend this place they did a great job...
Irene Cartagena
Could not be more pleased with our New Year's pictures. Kenny is awesome! Kept the kid engaged and got some beautiful shotz!!
Lori Crawford Carr
They did such an amazing job with our daughter's pictures. They were so patient with us. She is only two months and was a little fussy. Her pictures turned out beautifully.
Holly Cutchin McGillvray
Louisa Butler Evans
Amazing experience , very friendly and patient staff, great photos - definitely recommend!
Kristyna Wardova
Jovon Rivera
My daughter had her marching band pictures taken here as part of her Senior pictures. They turned out beautiful! Service was wonderful, too! What I liked the most was the fact we walked out the door w/a package of pictures. No coming back in a few days or a couple of weeks later. There are 3 package choices to choose from, any of which fits a family's budget.
Rosalie Lehman-Bryan
My daughter had her 4th year birthday pictures taken about 3 hours ago. In those 3 hours I think I've told everyone I know how great of an experience we had here. We had a horrible experience the day before at another studio and just so happened to stumble on Shotz through Google. My only regret about randomly finding this gem of a studio is that I have gone 3 years using a different studio/photographer. My daughter normally dreads picture day. She was having so much fun that she kept asking to take more pictures. Thank you so much for giving us the best pictures and the best experience of any place we've been. We will be back!
Taralyn Warren Rowe
Terry and Kenny were great! Very professional, kind and extremely efficient! In and out with gorgeous prints in an hour or so. My granddaughter loved her time there...will definitely be back soon!!
Ann Turner Ashby
They have an awesome staff. They do whatever they can to make you happy. You feel at home when you walk in... I would highly recommend them to anyone. 🙂
Taylor Lawrence
Tiffany Vaughan Ricks
The people were very friendly and you could tell they enjoyed what they were doing...There were plenty of props...Most likely will not be returning to our previous spot...reasonable package deals and extras 😉
Charlotte Watford-Baker
Great experience! Best place I've ever been for my little girl pics, Will be returning for future pics, love all the props, family owned/operated and time spent with you. Thank you!
Katrina Linker

We had an awesome experience at the studio! Terri and Daisha were great! Terri always works with you so you get the best deal possible!

Their photographer has the knack. All parents know what I'm talking about. If you have kids that seldom sit still longer than 10 seconds, let alone look at the camera, they have the magic here. Got great pictures.

We have used Shotz since our son was a newborn every time has been fantastic. The staff is great and we always get more terrific photos than we know what to do with. This time we did an outdoor shoot at Bennet’s Creek Park and we ended up with over 70 photos that we could use.

This place blew me away! We've been to JCPenney and Picture People in the past and after trying Shotz through a Groupon this is the only studio for my family from here on out. The family running this business were professional, personable and patient. The photo session felt like teamwork and with a 1yr old and a 4 year old I finally managed to get beautiful pictures without being frazzled out of my mind by the time I left. The price for our whole package was comparable to the places we've gone before, but the kids toys in the play area and them putting on a movie for my girls while we reviewed the shots really put them over the top.
Heather Moffitt

This was our second time using Shotz for family pictures and they turned out great! I love that they are so accommodating and great with children. I also love that we can review and receive prints right after the shoot. I'd recommend to anyone looking for family pictures.
