A local photography studio is stepping up to help families who purchased portraits from another company, but never got them.
CPI corporation closed studios across Albuquerque in stores like Sears and Walmart before filling some paid customer’s orders.
They said they'd do their best to fill them, but KOB Eyewitness 4 worked with the families to try to get answers and results from the company and they had little luck.
Wanting to change perception of the photography industry and to help these families, Kim Jew photography is offering free photography sessions for anyone affected, and will let them cash in receipts over $200 to pay for portraits through Kim Jew instead.
"I just kind of feel bad, as part of the photographic industry we want to do things to make people feel a little better about having their portrait taken again," portrait artist Kim Jew said, "So this was our way to say, we can make this more of a positive experience for you."
He hopes it will also expose people to a different kind of portrait taking.
