Custom Portrait Projects
Points to consider...
    1. Where will the portrait hang?
    2. What size?
    3. What medium: oil, pastel, watercolor, charcoal, other?
    4. What style? Realistic or Impressionistic?
    5. I prefer to conduct a photo shoot/sketching session.
    6. My Personal CONTACT with the subject makes the BEST portrait!
    7. If a photo session is not possible, then I will need a collection of images.
    8. Clothing, subtle and solid colors. Formal or Informal?
    9. Children, adults, and pets should be well fed and rested before the photo session!
    10. Together, we will pick out the best images from the session.
    11. Oil portraits typically require 3 to 6 months from the photo session for completion. More time is needed for multi-panel projects.
    12. Travel, Hotel, Per Diem, for portrait sessions that require me to travel outside of Atlanta.
