Working with you to ensure a portrait within your budget and personal vision is always
the first step. The fees will depend on the number of subjects, dimensions required, clothing,
hands, complexity of background, and inclusion of pets. But, whatever the size, the portrait
will radiate color and beauty.
The journey begins with you, the client. Your choice makes the difference. I am always
interested in talking to someone who is enthusiastic about portraits. If you are, call me!

do not necessarily double the 'one subject' fee, but two subjects, size and other requested
details will result in additional costs.

basic cost is required upon agreement of the contract with an additional one-third after
