Tot Shots was opened in 2009 by sisters Rebecca Edwards and Hannah McConnell after frustration with the current options for baby and child photography in the Spokane area. After trying all the competition there were a few things that they both knew they could improve on in their new venture: taking advantage of the current technology and printing instantly in house as opposed to waiting weeks for portrait delivery, providing a modern looking portrait with innovative props and background designs, easy availability and open hours, and excellent customer service without paying extreme pricing or sitting fees. These tenets make Tot Shots Spokane's premier studio photography resulting in a very loyal customer following. Not much has changed since 2009, Rebecca owns and runs the business operations to provide Hannah more time with her children but these things remain the same: Tot Shots has never charged a sitting fee or cost per person, we print all photo sheets while you wait, we take excellent photos of children, babies, and families in a modern and friendly setting, are open seven days a week with regular schedules and we strive to provide the single best customer service experience our clients have ever had. We do all this and then some, keeping the cost of our products and service low.
