|Just wanted to tell you that Frank loved the portrait of Lindsey! He couldn't get done talking about it and said what a beautiful job you did of capturing her perfectly. Thank you so much. If I ever need another portrait done, I will definitely give you a call. --Rhonda Noble, Oakmont, PA|
For $385 (in two payments: $100 deposit when you order + $285 when you approve the finished portrait) you get:
This is an exciting extra! You can order t-shirts, sweatshirts, even baby- and kid-sized apparel featuring your very own pet. Not just the breed art that is already available, but your pet! You can also order mugs, mouse pads, tote bags, teddy bears, buttons, and a multitude of other goodies for home and office! CafePress chooses only the highest quality products and the most advanced printing techniques to fill your order.
When I've worn shirts featuring my pup Rosie's portrait, people often stop me and ask how they can get their pet's portrait on a shirt. I have to explain that any local t-shirt shop can heat-transfer your pet's face onto a t-shirt. But it would be missing the key ingredient: the portrait! You can only get that by having your pet's portrait done! Then you'll have a choice of over 50 great products showing off your pet's shining face!

Special savings when you order with your portrait: Normally these high-quality prints cost $40 each. But if you order at the same time as your portrait, you pay only $30 for a print. If you order two or more at the same time as your portrait, the price drops to $25 each! (Why? By printing, matting, and shipping everything at once, I save time and you save money!)

If you are like most of my clients you've probably never commissioned a portrait before and have a lot of questions... So do I! Your portrait will be as one-of-a-kind as your pet: I'd like to get to know your dog better and learn more about what you are looking for in a portrait.
I'm either sitting here working at my studio or not far away -- feel free to pop in and say "hi," say a few words, or ask a question. I'm all ears...

If you are already sure you are getting a portrait, don't wait until you've rounded up photos!
$100.00 deposit on your pet portrait will lock in your place on my waiting list. I'll contact you right away to work out the details.
While you decide what you want in your dog's portrait, start looking for pictures! If you are like me, you've got a photo albums and shoe boxes (or folders on your computer) overflowing with pictures of your pets (I've got more pictures of the pets than the people in my family!). Get those photos out right now and look through them with details and close-ups in mind.
Send me several of your favorites so I can get a feel for your pet’s character. I’ll tell you if these photos are suitable for my “model.” If you don’t find what you like, get out the camera, read my “Tips on Taking a Photo” and shoot away from all angles, in a lot of poses and places. Then send me prints of your pictures, or have them put on a CD and mail that to me.
|Britt, a Welsh Springer Spaniel, died suddenly at only six years old. Britt's mom's friends wanted to comfort her with a portrait showing off Britt's beautiful face. Obviously, there was no chance to take the perfect picture. Their solution was to find (being very sneaky to not ruin the surprise!) several pictures.||In the finished portrait, I combined elements of several photos. Her mom's favorite photo with the cocked head was over-exposed so there was no detail visible in the highlights. I started with the cocked head expression, then pulled the missing details, like Britt's freckles, from the bottom photos and her silky ears from the top left and bottom right photos.|
I've done dozens of each kind of portrait. I'll be glad to give you the benefit of my experience about what portrait suits you and your dog. Get in touch below.
