    You leave instructions for ordering but what about those who have ordered & paid you in good faith? You have no such assistance to them.

    I placed an order from Sears portraits, paid for them and have not been able to pick the pictures up yet. You call the number they provide at the studio and no one calls back. I emailed customer care and never heard back. Then last week I placed an order online scared that I would lose my pictures, my credit card was charged and there is no sign of my pictures coming. These pictures are of my baby when he was a newborn, something I will never get back. I am disgusted and frustrated.
