Melissa did an absolutely fantastic job of photographing the children at our center. These were studio portraits and not your typical school pictures. She took great time and care with each of our students; who all were extrememly comfortable with her from the babies to the five year olds. Melissa has a unique talent and I will be eternally grateful to her for capturing these children’s timeless images. She is truly an artist and I would recommend Melissa to anyone!

I want to thank you for everything. Our expereince with you has been wonderful and exciting! The parents are very, very pleased and have not stoped talking about the unique touch that you have with their children and capturing their beauty. I hope to continue our professional and personal relationship through out the future!

We had Melissa come to our preschool and take pictures, and it was a wonderful experience. Melissa is light-hearted and fun with a beautiful smile on her face always. She is gifted with the children, which showed when they warmed to her quickly. This photography session was the least stressful of my career!
And of course the pictures were beautiful. I had one mom call me when she viewed her proofs. She was crying because she said she had no idea that her children were so beautiful. We had a great response from the families and many want her to return next year. I highly recommend this photography experience. God bless, Melanie Strankman Preschool Director

I just really wanted to take some time to let you know what a wonderful job you did photographing Emily, Elizabeth, Charlie, and Patch. You were so genrous with your time and made sure you gave each of the kids their own “time to shine.” When the pictures came in, I was so taken with how rich the colors were. As a teacher at the preschool, I was able to see many of the orders, and they were all so breathtaking. Your work truly goes beyond what one would expect. I can almost “hear” my children in their pictures. — You did such a marvelous job capturing their personalities!!! My only regret was not ordering MORE!!! Thank you so much for sharing your unbelievable gift with my family, and please know that these pictures will forever be displayed in our home.
Much gratitude, Caroline Hearn

I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful portraits you took of my girls. I am amazed at your patience, which pays off because our pictures were perfect. Thank you for being so patient with my little one as she cried, then napped and finally smiled for the camera. You captured my children in a way that I see them as their mom and now I will have those images forever. Thanks so much. Allison Thomas

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with my portraits. I have three children and have had school/daycare pictures made before. These are not your ordinary school pictures, they are portraits. I want to hang these on my wall. They capture the beauty and the innocence of each one of my children perfectly. Thank you so much for giving me these memories!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding pictures you took of my son, Tyler. The expressions you were able to capture in that short amount of time were priceless. I will admit that I was one of those “Moms” that wanted to be there when his pictures were taken, but after going online and seeing the quality of work that you do, it truly put my mind at ease and the results were exactly what I had hoped for. You do exceptional work and I will definitely give your name if someone should perhaps inquire on where to go.
Again thank you, Jackie Kelly, Mom of Tyler Kelly 9 Mos.

Thank you so much for coming to MCDC and making pictures. You do outstanding work. I was very pleased last year and again this year. I loved all of my daughter’s pictures. You provide quality pictures and affordable prices as well. I appreciate your time and dedication with each child. Thanks again for the great job!
Have a great day! Vicki Wampler

I have to tell you that everyone who has seen Kyle’s pictures are so impressed with your work. I am so pleased with all the pictures and thrilled that you captured such amazing shots. People keep saying that he looks like a Ralph Lauren model in these pictures. Thank you for the excellent work. Carol Lyon

I thought Melissa did a great job with my children! My daughter came home talking about her portrait session excitedly, and she is usually slow to warm up to people.

The experience was great! It’s important for a photographer to connect with the children to get good pictures, and that was definitely the case in every session with my daughter.

I was absolutely amazed by the beauty of these pictures even though my child was not participating in the experience very well. Even though she was crying and didn’t want her picture taken, these photos are the most beautiful I have of my child. – Michelle Woods

They were wonderful photos and the on-line viewing and ordering made it that much easier. – Karen Owen

I had a great experience with Spoiled Rotten Photography. The pictures were great, the prices were reasonable and the turn around time was very quick. – Samantha Killian

Melissa was a very patient and persistent on getting a good picture of a very crabby and uncooperative 3 year old. Her editing of my print made for an absolutely perfect portrait!

Very impressed with the quality of the portraits – Helen Stinson
