Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.

They also offer postproduction services such as professional-quality video editing.

When Carol Nanfito steps behind the lens, she’s less preoccupied with camera angles or lighting than with the people posing for her. Prioritizing subjects over technical wizardry is what lends each of her portraits—from kids playing with their favorite pups to fathers escorting their daughters down the aisle—their direct emotional style. To preserve the memories from her on-location and in-studio sessions, Carol offers various sized prints, as well as albums for certain packages, such as boudoir. She even hosts boudoir parties where groups of girlfriends can each strike sultry poses during half-hour photo shoots.
Cean Orrett, an avid shutterbug since age 5, has captained a team of likeminded photographers at Cean One Photography Studios for more than 15 years. Rather than relying on the same setups and compositions for every shoot, Cean and his team customize their approach to the clients in question, whether they're newlyweds or high school seniors. Depending on their clients' preferences, they shoot sessions inside their San Diego studio or in the great outdoors throughout California, capturing candid images to suit each subject's personality. The same guiding principles fuel Cean One?s film subset, in which he documents milestone events such as parties, weddings, or baby's first doctoral thesis.
