Our Attitude


Forget boring backdrops and stiff faces!

We believe in bringing a little attitude to school photography. Our school portraits bring fun to every picture that becomes a memory for a lifetime. Better yet, parents are ecstatic with our photography style that uses soft and natural light with natural looking backgrounds. It’s a fresh, yet classic way, to capture the spirit and attitude of each student.


Our Mission


Our mission is to capture the spirit of the child with fresh, professional-quality portraits at school picture prices.

Working with us is a snap!

Just ask our current school partners how professional, energetic, organized and creative we are. With a “memory for a lifetime” in mind, we seriously understand the importance of planning for picture day. We work closely with schools and keep parents informed so that students are excited about picture day.

Our Founders

The original ideas for HotShot Portraits was developed by Peggy Parks and Steve Turner. They created HotShot Portraits to apply their forte for documenting great kids’ expressions to school portraits.  

While raising two daughters, Peggy & Steve had seen enough dull canvas backdrops and timid poses. They thought there had to be a better school picture. That’s why they evolved school pictures to be expressive, fun and treasured! After all, there’s only one chance each year to get the best possible portrait of a child as a student.

 With all the smiles, comes a partnership behind the scenes to make working with HotShot a cinch. Our team of photographers work to produce beautiful portraits of children. With over six decades of experience as portrait photographers, we bring professionals to the team who share high standards and love of photography.

Peggy and Steve are now semi-retired but still work with the HotShot team to ensure continuity of service for their baby.




We are so delighted with this year’s pictures.

You did a knockout job!
