It's hard to feel independent when food for your family is hard to come by. To help out, we are once again opening our studio for holiday portraits in exchange for groceries that we can donate to the Montclair Human Needs Food Panty.

This July Fourth stop by our studio in your red, white and blue and we'll create a portraits for you that you can share on your social media sites. Our studio at eleven midland is right on the parade route.

The food pantry needs non-perishable items in cans or boxes (no jars, please) and the food must not be past the expiration date.

So pop on in for a portrait, wave that flag, and help dispel some of those old U.S. Blues. We can all help.
