Step One:  THE PLANNING STAGE

THE INITIAL CONSULTATION

Every portrait commission has its own story, and each is unique and exciting as the client and I work to create it together.  If the client indicates they would like to take their own photographs, then I suggest checking out the Photo Tips section on this website to help guide them. 

Whenever possible, I like to meet with my client in their home or where the portrait will be hung if that is not the same place.  This gives me lots of information regarding my client's color preferences, decorating style and degree of formality. We want the portrait to harmonize with their home as well as highlight the subject's personality.  As we chat, I try to listen "between the lines" to create the perfect concept for that client. I need to know how much input the client wants and how much freedom I have in creating the portrait. 

We discuss everything from the size of the painting to possible poses. Sometimes the client has that "perfect photo" and the decision is made! Sometimes I work from several of the client's photos, and sometimes I take my own digital photos. I arrive with camera and lighting just in case! It is one of those quirks that the best snapshot does not always make the best painting. We work and learn together.
