• Most portraits can be completed within 3-4 weeks and I can occasionally honor rush requests for an additional fee.
  • All portraits include an 8x10" print; please enquire about additional prints or sizes.
  • You also receive a high-resolution digital file for things like: cards, photo gifts (mugs etc) or additional prints that you can make on your own.
  • Full-body portraits require a single reference photo of all of the subjects posed in the way that they will be depicted in the final portrait. Clothing can be updated.
  • Tors0-up portraits can be completed from separate reference pictures of each subject. Focus on each person's hair and smile: clothing can be updated for portrait coherence!
  • I'm always happy to update clothing colors and styles for portrait coherence if agreed upon before I begin the portrait.
  • No, I cannot make their "eyes open." Smiling eyes for everyone! This is a signature style that I've developed and happen to really love. It's OK if you don't, but I promise it gets weird when we mess with it and will kindly refer you to Etsy to find a style that resonates with you!



A few years ago, I created this style of portrait for my own family holiday card because I could not, for the life of me, get it together for family photos that year. 

I've never looked back! I offered it to my mailing list and got such good feedback on how happy they make people, I've been making them ever since.  Nothing brings me more joy than receiving your reference pictures of cute babies and even cuter pets!
