4.9/5 (20 Reviews)
“Great and professional staff, I had some ideas of portraits I wanted, and they catered to them. The sales was not pushy at all, and I got exactly the products I wanted. Same day printing is great. Would definitely[sp] recommend and will use in the future.”
“I absolutely love this place. [The] staff is always so friendly and really makes you feel good. I’ve taken my daughter and nephew there ever since they were 4 weeks old [and] I will continue to come here. I absolutely love them.”
“Second year in a row getting GREAT photos. All of the staff were kind and courteous. Same photographer took our photos this year and last year. He was great with the children and very patient.”
“Literally the most wonderful studio ever. My son and niece love the tickle flower! They are very flexible with planning and have great rates. And Bobby pins! I will forever do the norfolk to suffolk commute for them! 3 thumbs up.”
“Another great shoot! Thanks for everything. Addie was more definitely comfortable this time!”
“As always, a GREAT experience at Shotz! I take my children for birthday pictures. I especially enjoy the NO-pressure to buy and affordable prints. They always have MY best interests at heart!”
“We came in yesterday to update our family photos–with our newest addition to our family! The gentleman we worked with was super cool and patient with our newborn. Actually I don’t think our son was too fussy but regardless the photo shoot went very well. He took all sorts of different poses with hubby and I with our son and photos of our son alone. All of the pictures turned out well. The price was very reasonable in my opinion. We also got a CD with all of the photos on it as well which is great for our long distance relatives. The pictures are printed right there in shop so there is no waiting period (like days on end). Overall, I would definitely recommend them to friends and family and look forward to coming back for holiday pictures :).”
“Best pictures ever!! I took my kitten to have pictures taken of us! The photographer was amazing! Not just about posing & taking pictures, but took Candid shots too!! One candid shot made it to my final 3!! Also affordable!!”
“Very professional and nice people. They printed the pictures that I selected and they were ready in 5 minutes. I would recommend them.”
“I loved the studio the second I walked in. Very clean and welcoming. I felt instantly relaxed. I was nervous about having our family photos done since we are shy people but Kenneth was awesome and very patient and I felt comfortable immediately. The pictures were fantastic and professional and I will definitely come here again. Great work!”
“I have been to Shotz twice. The first time was back in June for family portraits (myself, husband, and then 18 month old), and then we went back today to take my daughter’s Christmas/Birthday photos. I am SO impressed with the studio. The entire staff is so warm and welcoming, and they make both my daughter and my husband and I feel so comfortable and relaxed. The pictures always turn out amazing, and everyone has a good time in the process. Plus, you get to leave with your order in hand! Where else does that happen?! If you’re looking for a place for pictures where you are going to be treated like family and not charged an arm and a leg, this is the place for you! I really cannot say enough good things about Shotz! I am not normally one to go and write reviews, but this place is so great, I have to spend time to brag about them! We will be customers for as long as the Navy has us in the area. Amazing!”
“Cant say enough great things about shotz!
My friend and i had to come by to take pictures for a professional application. We called in ahead of time to book our shoot and gave them the specifications for the pic which they said they could do. We had to change our appointment twice and they were extremely acommodating.
The day of: We arrived 10 min earlier than our appointment and they offered us a room to touch up, get ready etc. We spent about 15 min doing that and they did not rush us at all. Once we were ready, he took a few test shots and then began the picture taking. I took about 20-25 pictures after which he uploaded them and we viewed them on the computer. Besides the fact that i was not really happy with the way i looked, there were a few things in my pic ( crease on my shirt, pin, etc) that he said he would not be able to remove with photoshop so he offered to re-take my shots. 20 pics later we uploaded them and photoshopped them. He did a fantastic job!
My friend was a little more particular than i was about my picture and she got about 60 shots taken. She was also a ton more indecisive about her background, etc but he was SO patient with her.
Our session total took about 3 hours with pictures and photoshop but they came out great! He even emailed us the pictures and tailored them to the correct size we needed so they could be uploaded. I definitely recommend them for any sort of photo shoot you’d need. Their professionalism and skill are unmatched!”
“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!”
“Five stars all the way. These guys are courteous, patient and love what they do. I have a mean, serious baby that does not like to smile for strangers. These guys kept beings as silly as they can to get her to crack a little smile. Your photo shoot is done in a private studio and you are never rushed. They kept snapping picture until everyone in the group had the perfect smile. I recommend this studio and definitely will be returning.”
“This place was amazing. I serve in the army and I had my family coming down for my graduation and I wanted some high quality pics at a good price. This place answered the bill. They were friendly, nice and relaxed. Loved every sec of being there and they didn’t rush us at all. Great place.”
“I took my 1 year old son to get his 1st birthday pictures there. It was very last minute but they had an opening that day at the exact time I wanted. They were very professional, no wait to be seen, so patient with my son who was less-than-photogenic, were able to get my son to smile in quite a few pictures and what BEAUTIFUL pictures they were! They had TONS of props (more props than I have EVER seen!) and so many cute ideas for photographs.
The photographer downloaded all the pictures in front of me and we went through each and every picture to determine which ones I liked on a LARGE Apple monitor. They edited the pictures in front of me too.
So pleased, very thrilled and I want to scream from the roof-top how wonderful this place and the people are! It is family-owned and operated. In this day and age, it’s hard to find individuals that care and aim to please! Highly recommend this family and studio! :)”
“I have done all of my son’s pictures here as well as pictures for myself and my parents with my son here for the last 9 months and I plan to continue to go here. The prices are awesome and the staff is amazing. They always have fun and definitely keep my son smiling. 😀 All in all if you are looking for a place to make memories with your family this is the only place to go 😀 I am actually going there tonight for my son’s one year photo session!!!”
“I took my toddler to Shotz for his two year pictures, which turned out great. After that, our entire family went in for family portraits and a large group shot. The staff is very friendly and patient, and our portraits were wonderful.”
“The staff was very patient with my family. I had a toddler and newborn doing Christmas photos with various outfit changes. We did not feel rushed and we had a great experience. Definitely recommend them!”
4.8/5 (84 Reviews)
“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.”
“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.”
“Took my 4-year-old and 4-month-old there while I was in town visiting family. My normally happy baby decided to be fussy during the appointment but you would never know it from the photos! They were so patient and worked hard to get great shots of both girls and somehow managed to make it all a stress-free experience. Highly recommend. We’ll be back the next time we’re in town!”
“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.”
“I love these folks and I know you will too. They’ll make you feel like family. Can’t speak highly enough of them.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Great work! Easy going and patient with newborn and older sibling.”
“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!”
“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!!”
“Great, curteous staff. The photographers are great with children! Second year in a row getting great photos!”
“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!!”
“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!!”
“I took my daughter there to take her Senior Pictures and the service is excellent and the prices are affordable.”
“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.”
“Shots Portrait Studio is hands down the best! Their prices are literally unbeatable.. I got more than enough pictures printed for a great price. Anybody looking to take pictures , definitely check their website out & go!”
“I freaking LOVE shotz portrait studio! So lucky to have found them! Kenny is awesome! He works really well with my infant and gets great shots of her! & best of all we leave with prints in hand!”

“Down to earth staff …. no pressure in buying prints. Will definitely be a repeat customer!”

“These guys are amazing!!! I went in for my graduation photos today and the photographer was so professional and helpful. He even helped me adjust my cap and gown when I had no idea what I was doing lol. I can’t wait for another event to come around just so I can go back. The prices are phenomenal and the service is second to none. Thanks again for everything!”
“Amazing experience , very friendly and patient staff, great photos – definitely recommend!”
“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.”
“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.

“My family has been coming to Shotz almost since they’ve been in business. Its an amazing family owned/ran business that always keeps their customers’ best interests at heart. They are amazing with kids. Their packages are always affordable and every photo is high quality. I highly recommend this studio to anyone!”
“Second year going there for Christmas photos and my son’s newborn and one-year photos, they turned out great. Photographer was so helpful and supportive, consistently trying to get great pictures!”
“The staff is super nice, great quality portraits for great prices. They are so patient and understanding when it comes to my kids. Awesome awesome awesome.”
“Our recent experience at Shotz was fantastic! Terry was highly efficient, professional, attentive, and courteous during our photo shoot. My daughter had her high school senior portraits done at this location, and it was by far a pleasant experience. We were very happy with the quality of work and the cost was exceptionally reasonable too! Yes, we will use this studio again in the future!”
“Excellent job! Very good with young kids. Cute props and my kids had a good time. I’m glad I wasn’t pressured to buy like some portrait studios. Will definitely be back.”
“I have used Shotz before to do a family photo that includes our small Maltese dog. Both times the photographer was professional, and took a lot of time going through the photos, and cropping them and using Photo Shop. They were very patient and helpful. I like that they gave a 10% discount to teachers and military also. This experience we did have a spot of lint on one pose which was noticed after we got home. When we called, they were so nice and reprint the pose that was affected, and even went beyond with some extra photos that we did not request reprinting on. So they really wanted to make sure we were satisfied. Shotz stands behind their photography, and we’ll be back!”
“I have been to Shotz twice. The first time was back in June for family portraits (myself, husband, and then 18 month old), and then we went back today to take my daughter’s Christmas/Birthday photos.

“Excellent Service, very patient with my daughter and very talented camera shots and angles, and editing, we appreciated the experience and look forward to our next photo shoot.”
“We have had several photo sessions with them & have a great experience every time.”
“A+++ this place is great. I took my six month old here and they have alot of props and we used a groupon but we ordered additional prints because they were so good. 1 hour session and as many outfits as u want. Walk out with prints the same day.”
“I took my 1 year old son to get his 1st birthday pictures there.

“Enjoyed the visit. They have plenty of prop choices to create awesome / fun pictures. They took a good number of pictures and let us pick our favorites, even got to view the pictures side by side to see which of the similar style pictures was the best. Everyone was really friendly. I will definitely recommend this place to others!”
“I love this place! We have taken our infant there twice and they have been amazing! Most places tend to rush you out of the studio, not Shotz! The first time we went, my daugther was just not in the mood for pictures, the girl, Felicia (hope I spelled it right) was so patient and took seriosuly hundreds of pics and did everything she could to get her to smile. They gave us time to nurse her, we never felt rushed. We still ended up leaving with over 20 good pictures in 5-6 different poses.
The second time we went for Christmas pics and they had us do again, 5-6 different poses and again, went out of their way to make a 4 month old smile. You will leave their feeling like you got your money’s worth and best of all, you leave with your prints! love them- can’t wait to go back!”
