After many years of providing family portrait photography, we are sad to announce that all of our U.S. portrait studios are now closed. We appreciate your patronage and allowing us to capture your precious memories.

BocaNewsNow.com Consumer Advice: If you have paid for portraits at Boca-area Sears, WalMart or Babies 'R Us locations, first check with the store itself to determine if you have been issued a refund, or if your photos are being held in the store. If you receive any resistance, call your credit card company and dispute the charge.
