WHAT TO DO IF YOU DONíT
HAVE A GOOD PHOTOGRAPH
OF YOUR PET?


Sometimes it is just not possible to get a good photograph of your pet. If, for instance, your pet has passed on and you never did get a good one, I will do my best to re-create the image of your pet using as many tools as I can. I will ask you about the breed and special characteristics, including their personality and most important, the special little features that make them who they are - a gimpy ear, a turn of the head, these are all important things to me as the Artist, in order to be able to give you as close a portrait of your loved one as possible. Your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me, as is the creation of as photorealistic portrait as possible.

My goal is always to make your portrait as photorealistic as possible.
