We Have some really exciting news!

Almost 21 years ago, in August of 1998, James V. (Jim) Schoonover sold his successful portrait studio, Van James Ltd. to the Carroll Studios and came on board as our Director of Photography. Since then he has become the face of Carroll Studios, photographing thousands of portraits for our valued clients. 

We are pleased to announce that our relationship with Jim has come full circle and his original studio, Van James Ltd., will now become the New Brand for Carroll Studios as Clifford R. Carroll, M.Photog.,CR retires after 50 years at the helm. 

As part of the re-branding, you will start to see our logo and studio identification shown as Carroll and Van James. While the quality, style, pricing and level of service you’ve come to know and expect from us will remain unchanged, there will be some new benefits coming. 

We are excited to share this news with you and look forward to continuing our relationship with all of our valued clients.
