Commission outline pencil portrait on high quality artist paper.
When I lost my baby Sophie at birth, I never had the opportunity to get quality framable photos. All the photos taken while she was alive were in a dimly lit hospital room on low quality phone cameras. While we had some beautiful portraits taken of her after she passed, I wasn't keen to frame and display these pictures. I wanted something that could be displayed that didn't suggest that she had passed. A pencil portrait can take a low quality photo, or a scan, and turn them into beautiful pieces of art.
Specifically offered in mind of parents who have lost a child to miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal deaths (before 1 month of age), however this is not limited to these parents only.
Please note that this option is not designed for facial portraits, with the exceptions of 3D scans. Also, the requirements for a high quality image are not a requirement for this style option.
