What Size Portrait Should I Commission?

There are a couple of factors that can affect what size portrait you should commission, not just the price. 

5"x7"- Perfect for a small portrait of head and shoulders only. Not suitable for more than 1 subject.

8"x10"- Single head and shoulder, or smaller full-body portraits. Not suitable for more than 1 subject. 

11"x15" - Extra large head and shoulder portraits, larger single full-body portraits, and more than 1 subject.

I also do square portraits, if your photo will look better as a square pet portrait I will let you know. These are my standard sizes, however, I can do any size on request if you would prefer an alternative.

Pet Portrait Gift Certificates

Left it too late to commission a portrait as a gift, or not sure exactly what they want? You can always buy a gift certificate. If you do this, I will design a personalised gift voucher card designed either with the recipient's pet, or a piece of my artwork. The cost of this is the value of the voucher, plus £3.
