Franchise FAQs

What you need to know before buying a photography franchise

We will always treat you like family and we only make money after your sales take place — not by printing portraits that you may (or may not) sell. We will give you the tools, training, and guidance to build a lasting successful business creating beautiful authentic portraits that today’s professional moms and dads can’t get on their own.
Everyone brings their own unique talents to the table. Some of our franchise owners have a great head for business, others are a whiz at marketing, but all have an appreciation for the art of photography and a love for kids. No matter your skill level behind the camera, our exclusive training program will teach you how to capture beautiful, timeless portraits.
We gather as a franchise family each year (usually in January).    We feel very strongly about our family bonds, and this meeting strengthens our connection to each other as well as provides a time for us to learn new or strengthen our photography and business skills.    One of our core values is advocacy — we seek ways to honor and lift up the marginalized.  During our time together, we find a way to serve.   For the last couple of years, we've visited homeless shelters and blessed the families with beautiful portraits of their children.    Read more about our previous SRP conferences: 2019, 2018, 2017   
The total investment required for a Spoiled Rotten franchise is extremely reasonable! At a range of $33,500 – $48,300, it could be less than a new mid-sized sedan. The franchise fee is $30K and equipment package is under $7K. This is a home based business! Build-out costs typically associated with a brick-and-mortar concept are not required. More details are available HERE.
We encourage all SRP photographers to make the most of their investment by committing themselves to their photography business full-time. The more time you spend building your business, the greater your return. When first establishing the company, our founder, Melissa Tash was working as a Payload Crew Trainer for NASA’s International Space Station program. The response to Spoiled Rotten Photography by parents and schools in her area was so positive, she quickly surpassed her NASA paycheck and was able to turn her attention to growing Spoiled Rotten Photography full-time while raising a family.
Most definitely. We are a home based business! The SRP mobile studio system has been specifically designed to allow our franchisees to work from home and spend more time with their families. There is no need for a brick-and-mortar studio. Field work is often required for photo sessions and calls on potential clients.
That’s a distinct possibility – particularly if you are already a professional photographer in your own right. However, we have very specific and high standards for the equipment we use at Spoiled Rotten Photography in order to appropriately capture the images our clients have come to expect. You may use your existing equipment if it meets our standards.
We have a pre-training course that is important for owners that are not already professional photographers. After successful completion of our virtual learning pre-training, you'll attend an intensive 11 day training course in Huntsville, AL. During this time you'll learn how to create SRP styled portraits and all the ins and outs of operating an SRP franchise.
At SRP, we consider ourselves a family of operators and act accordingly.  We provide on-going training and support to every franchisee for the life of their franchise agreement. Our franchise owners also often enjoy sharing with one another what has worked well for their business in their respective territories. We have regular conference calls and an annual franchise conference.     During our frequent (usually every 2 weeks) video calls, we cover a wide range of topics including sales, image reviews, posing, customer relations, and other owner-requested topics.  We also have a very active owner Facebook group.
Nothing is more important to us than our core values.  We believe you hold more value than what is contained in your bank statement. Therefore, we often approve our franchisees based on a number of different criteria – many of which are not related to finances, but instead to depth of character and level of commitment.  If you become Spoiled Rotten, you'll be a part of the best photography franchise available.

The communications on this web site are not directed by us to the residents of any of those states.
