How to Order your Portrait

Step 1.

Contact me initially by phone preferably. Or you can or send photos of your pet by e-mail or regular mail. I would also be happy to meet you in person to meet with you and your pet to review photos of your pet(s).

I will need at least 3-4 clear and close-up photo's for reference to work from.

I cannot stress enough that the photo's NEED to be suitable photo's for me to work from. Unfortunately I have had to turn down orders in the past due to unsuitable photographs.

If photo's cannot be provided by you, I would be most happy to meet with you and your pet and take the photo's myself for a minimal additional cost.

Below I have examples of  photo's that are optimal for drawing.



Photo tips:

1. Take outdoor photo's ...natural light is best on an overcast day.

2. Take only head shots for a head portrait of your pet.

3. Take photo's at eye level with your pet.

If you cannot provide photo's I would be happy to meet with you and your pet and take the photo's for you at an additional cost.

Local (Bracebridge area) is $15.00

You will be able to keep the photo's when portrait is done.

Anywhere outside of Bracebridge is calculated by time and gas.

Step 2.

 Once I have reviewed your photos and we have discussed the layout and photo's being used I will give you a time frame on how long your portrait will be to complete.

Please allow 3-4 weeks .  At busy times such as Christmas it may be longer.

A 50% deposit is required up front. The balance of payment must be paid before the portrait is to be picked up or shipped out.

Step 3

Once your portrait is finished I will send you a proof to look at and fully approve to ensure that you are totally happy and satisfied.

All original photo's will be returned to you.

All portraits and are matted and wrapped to protect your portrait. Framing is not included.

If your portrait is being shipped  I will provide you with a quote on shipping. As the shipping price depends on the size of the package.

The courier service takes appoximately 10 business days to reach you. I will contact you the day it is shipped out.

 *At this time I can only accept cash or cheque. I am not set up for credit or debit card payment. All cheques must be cleared before shipment.
