From choosing your favourite photos to receiving the finished portrait, this guide covers all the necessary steps and information you need to know. So lets get started!

Step 1 - Choose Your Photos

  • Find your favourite photos of your pet.
  • Choose at least 3-5 if possible.
  • Ideally, the photos should be well-lit and high-quality so that I can see all your pet's features.
  • Please provide multiple reference photos to help me capture your pet's likeness and personality.

Step 2 - Contact me

  • You can contact me via Facebook, Email (, Website Inbox, Instagram, or Ko-fi.
  • Show me the photos of your pet and tell me a little about them.
  • Let me know their name, personality, and any style preferences you have in mind.
  • If you have a particular vision for your portrait, let me know and I'll see if I can work to your brief.
  • Please notify me of any deadlines you have in mind.

Step 3 - Send Payment

  • You can pay for your portrait via my website, Etsy, or Ko-fi.
  • Alternatively, I can provide bank transfer details if you're in the UK.
  • A 50% non-refundable deposit is required before starting the portrait, or full payment if you prefer.
  • You will receive a confirmation email if you pay via my website, Etsy or Ko-fi. If you pay via bank transfer, I'll let you know when I receive it.

Step 4 - Waiting

  • Please wait patiently for your portrait to be completed, my average turnaround time is between 3 weeks to a month, depending on the complexity of your portrait.
  • If you need your portrait for a certain date, please let me know and I'll do my best to work to your timescale.
  • Once your portrait is ready, I'll message you the finished piece to confirm you're happy with it before I post it.
  • I'd love to see a photo of your portrait framed once it arrives! And please feel free to post a review to my social media pages or shopping platforms.
