What if I am not ready to schedule my Portrait Sitting?
The Consultation should take place sooner rather than later. We will use the opportunity of the Consultation to plan your sitting to ensure that your perfect date is available when you need it. It is not uncommon to schedule the sitting weeks or even months in advance. We can always shift the date if a conflict arises. In our experience, scheduling a date at the Consultation will give you a target around which to schedule, ensuring that your portrait gets made and doesn’t get passed over with time.
What should we wear for our sitting?
The formality of the clothing is up to you. Your personal style and the room in which your portrait will live usually determines the formality of your attire. At the Consultation, we will help you choose style and colors, discuss clothing do’s and don’ts and provide resources and assistance to guide you. This portrait will be an important one that will live in your home for a very long time. We do everything we can to make your experience with us as stress free as possible.
May we include our family pets?
Absolutely! We love including your pets in studio or location portraits. Be sure to let us know if you will be including any non-human family members along so that we may prepare. (If you have horses, we’d prefer to schedule a location portrait.)
Do you only create mixed-media paintings?
We are well-known for creating personalized, world-class portrait art of your family. Everyone loves our Oil-enhanced Mixed Media Portrait Paintings, and most clients find them well worth the investment for lifelong enjoyment. Occasionally, some clients decide that our mixed media portraits do not fit their budget. In those cases, our “Emulsion on Canvas” photographic portraits provide an excellent opportunity to own a world-class portrait of your family at a good value.
