Procedures for portraits:

The first sitting takes place takes place in the subjects home or office where we discuss the particulars of the portrait(size, pose, clothing to be worn etc.) At this time I may take photos of the subject or good reference photos are provided. All care will be taken with the client’s photos and digital copies will be made.

The next sitting consists of reviewing the photos to make a recommendation to the client for the portrait.

Delivery is done by UPS, or if in reasonable driving distance delivery will be done by the artist. Carrier shipping fees are added to the final cost of the portrait.
