Original Hand Drawn Artwork & Personal Portrait sessions


Personal Portrait sessions can be booked for the creation of reference photos for a hand drawn portrait. Realistic pencil drawings are hand drawn using your favorite photos as reference. They are created to inspire you to celebrate and share a special person, story, passion or achievement.

Your favorite people, pets or sentimental subject become the focal point of a unique piece of artwork that will be cherished by you and loved ones for years to come. They are a perfect way to show the people in your life how much they matter, are appreciated and loved.

Each piece tells a bit of your story.

Created as a gift for others, for yourself or as part of a collection, these original portraits are for any occasion that has significance for you.

Designed to provide you with updated photos of your favorite people, pets, passions or achievements,  personal portrait sessions can be used for the creation of an original hand drawn pencil portrait, as a standalone photo session, or as a combination photo + hand drawn portrait package.

Any photo session can be used for the purpose of creating great reference photos for a hand drawn portrait - headshots, family sessions, engagements, weddings and special events.

Sessions can be set up as a session fee, or as an entire package to include photo prints and/or a hand drawn portrait.
