The beginning reference photo! Whether you’re planning on using an old treasured picture or you’ve taken a hundred new shots of your furry friend, a good reference picture is one I can clearly see details – such as reflections in the eyes, whiskers and individual hairs. But don’t worry, I’m here to help and advise. The best reference photos are often taken outside in a shaded area with natural light, at the same height as your pet, with the subject looking directly at/close to the camera, and sat still!
Once we have agreed upon your desired image, I will ask some basic questions such as size, portrait/landscape orientation, head study/full body, paper choice and your pets name! Once these are decided, I will email over an agreement, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit, payment confirms that you agree to my terms and conditions. This deposit allows me to confirm your order and book you into my calendar.
Heres the fun bit! You will receive ongoing updates of your pets portrait as it emerges from the paper, these updates will also be shared across my social media pages – unless you’re purchasing as a surprise gift and want to keep it secret, just let me know when booking.
Once your portrait is complete, I require the remaining sum before postage.
For all my portraits you now have the option of a beautiful coloured background! Please click here for some coloured background examples.
