Ho Ho Ho!  There is something magical about time with santa!  Let your child experience time with the Jolly Old Elf, and let us create some beautiful memories for you to cherish forever.  

 

      

These sessions go QUICK!  If you do not get a session, sign up for the wait list, and we’ll let you know if a session becomes available! 

Session Fee Donation: Session fee is a min. donation of $35 (is being donated to the Legacy PTA.)  Let us know if you have any special requests, or if your child is  bringing any special items, or anything else you’d like us to know to make the session a success! 

Portraits will be created at Legacy Elementary School Library

Portrait Sessions: Saturday, Nov. 10th

 

 

      

  • Wear classic or fun clothing styles in SOLID or SMALL PRINTS. 
  • AVOID: Bold patterns, stripes, large logos, or writing.
  • Reds and Greens will coordinate perfectly with the set!  Gold or cream will look amazing too! 
  • Add layers and accessories (hats, jackets, bow-ties and jewelry).  This is a great way to add variety and personality to your images and gives your portrait depth and dimension.  
  • For a family portrait– you want to look like you all belong together, but not like you are wearing a uniform.  Dress in similar tones.  Here’s a hint:  lay all your family’s clothes out on the bed – if they could somehow all be worn by one person, you’re on the right track… if any item of clothing stands out too much, you might want to consider substituting something different.

         

  • Come to Legacy Elementary School Library (165 Pine Grove Rd Madison, AL 35757) at your assigned time.
  • Don’t forget your special items to include in your portrait!  
    • Fresh flowers, wooden toys, dolls, jewelry, a favorite stuffed animal or book, musical instrument, their lovie or anything else your child loves!

  • View  and order your images in your private on-line gallery.  
  • A typical proof set has 10-15 images.   
  • Share your access code with family and friends to show off your images!   
  • You have one week to make your selections. 

Donation:  The session fee is a minimum donation to the LES PTA of $35

Investment:  8×10’s start at $25.  Packages start at $65 and are available with increasing discounts.  Digital images are also available.  A digital artist custom crops and enhances each image, and portraits are professionally printed on archival paper.  

Deployed Spouse Program:  If you have a spouse deployed with the US Military, make note of this in the comments section when you order.  We’ll send a special gift to say “Thank you for your service!”

Foster Parent Program:  If you are a foster parent and have your foster children photographed, please let us know and we will give you a discount code for 30%.

Portraits will be delivered to your school for pick up.  We’ll send you an email when they are ready (in plenty of time for Christmas).  Home shipping is also available (this is great for out-of town grandparents that order!)

This summer we decided to have a personal project challenge.  Every year I try to photograph something just for me.  It’s not for a client, so I’m able to be completely creative and execute my vision.  It’s a time to stretch my skills and creativity.   I grow as a photographer each time I complete a personal project, so this year I challenged my fellow ‘Spoiled Rotten’ Photographers to a personal project competition… and the results are awesome!   I’m so proud of my fellow professional photographers, and I know this exercise caused them to grow as a photographer… something we vowed to do when we signed on with Spoiled Rotten Photography.   

Vote for your favorite project!

For FUN, the winning photographer will receive a $50 Amazon gift card (and a year’s worth of bragging rights)  So without further ado, here are the projects.  Please vote for your favorite by Sunday July 22nd at 10pm!

Presenting our 2018 Personal Projects…

Name:  Heather Sams
Franchise Location:  Colorado Springs
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Relationships and the moments we share
What is your theme?:  Capturing the connection
Image Title:  To Have and to Hold

Name:  Melissa Tash
Franchise Location:  Huntsville, AL
What was your inspiration for this image?:  I saw an image by Melanie Jasmin that intrigued me.  It was a little boy with yellow hair and a yellow background, wearing yellow, with a lemon and a sour look on his face.  My daughter’s color is orange… I knew she would look amazing with her orange hair on an orange backdrop, holding an orange, and looking cute… a sharp contrast to the feeling of the inspiration image, but using the same color technique.  
What is your theme?:  Color matched personality
Image Title:  Cutie

Name:  Kim Hoover
Franchise Location:  North Charlotte
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Old black and white movies
What is your theme?:  Sneaking away from the dance to catch lightning bugs.
Image Title:  Tiny Sneaker

Name:  Tracy Sisson
Franchise Location:  Huntsville, AL
What was your inspiration for this image? : Several paintings by abstract artist Casey Matthews, were my inspiration.  She uses layering of mixed media and negative space to create movement and texture.
What is your theme?: “My theme is layering, negative space and movement.  I wanted show the layering effect by creating blurred areas in front of and behind the subject.  Instead of blank negative space, I used the subject as the ‘negative’ space for the layering to move around.”
Image Title:  Sitting Pretty

 

Name:  Megan Bourrell
Franchise Location:  Huntsville, AL
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Enjoying the view
What is your theme?:  Going Home
Image Title:  Serenity

Name:  Joy Thomas
Franchise Location:  Huntsville, AL
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Beach/coffee inspired! Time with friends, resting and renewing!
What is your theme?:  Coffee and Friends
Image Title:  Coffee Makes it Better

Name:  Kara Kellner
Franchise Location:  Birmingham, AL
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Dancing is part of my soul!! Even though I can’t do it anymore, I can get my kicks by living vicariously through my lens.  Photographing dancers gives me the same delight as performing on stage.  Getting that perfect ‘shot’ of a dancer can be compared to nailing the perfect pirouette.
What is your theme?:  Long exposure dance portraits.  Shutter speed was slowed to 2 seconds in order to capture a dancer’s movement through motion blur (rather than out-of-focus blur).
Image Title:  Motion

Name:  Katrina Gatta
Franchise Location:  Cleveland, OH
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Sweet babies.  I want to capture their sweet spirits.
What is your theme?:  New born
Image Title:  Bearly Dreaming

Name:  Elizabeth Bailey
Franchise Location:  Alpharetta
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Lisa Visser.  She creates beautiful, moody, black and white, tween portraits!
What is your theme?:  Black and White Tween portraits.  Mine is not as moody as the inspiration, but I wanted the freckles to show. 
Image Title:  Fearless

Name:  Melissa Guarino
Franchise Location:  Birmingham
What was your inspiration for this image?:  I love to ride around looking at abandoned places.  I like to think about what they used to be or how they looked in their prime.  I love to imagine the character they once had.  I did an entire series of abandoned places in my hometown of Birmingham, including an abandoned hospital.  I decided on this image because the NO TRESPASSING sign made it seem extra “forbidden.”
What is your theme?:  Street Photography, abandoned places, still photography
Image Title:  Days Gone By

Name:  Jackie Kelly
Franchise Location:  Huntsville, AL
What was your inspiration for this image?:  Tom Sierak’s ‘The Audition’
What is your theme?:  Artistic impression of Sierak’s painting
Image Title:  Captive Audience
