Portraits Now is now re-open!!

WAITING LIST- While we would love to offer a waiting list to reschedule appointments, it is just not feasible with our on line appointment system.  The demand far outweighs the available appointments due to the COVID restrictions and shut downs.  You can keep an eye on our on line appointment system for any last minute cancellations.  Just visit the on line booking site often, click on the earliest day and the NEXT available date will show on the right hand side.

FINISHED PACKAGES AT OUR STUDIO FOR PICK UP- We will be contacting all customers who have packages ready for pick up.  

CLASS COMPOSITES- Some Student Associations organize a class composite with us. We will be extending any deadlines for the class composite until at least late AUGUST (most likely will be extended until September).  We will work with the individual Student Associations for them to communicate the photography deadline to you.
