Our portraits are offered in two extraordinary finishes:
The Classic Finish
The Classic finish is our conventional, standard finish displaying the realism of a photograph with rich artistic enhancements and is available in every size. Our artist will carefully go through and embellish in all the right areas to make sure you look your absolute best. This portrait is finished with a canvas texture, mounted to artist masonite for durability and beauty, and sealed with a protective coating.
The Legacy Finish
The Legacy finish is our most exquisite offering and the closest thing to getting a master oil painting done. Because of the amount of labor involved, we can only finish a very finite amount of Legacy Portraits per year. As a result, they are limited to sizes 30” or larger.
In our Legacy finish, the portrait is rendered entirely as a painting. Our artist commences digitally in a program developed specifically for traditional painters. In this program, the artist chooses her brush, the exact number of bristles on her brush. She mixes her paint colors and decides the precise amount of paint to apply to the brush. She then chooses the angle, the pressure, and brush technique, just as one would with traditional old world painting. After the artist is finished, we carefully create archival quality pigments to bleed into a unique museum-grade canvas from Germany. The end result is a spectacular portrait that is truly one of a kind. Because of the special materials that we use, our Legacy Portraits are rated for 250 years before any fading takes place.
We look forward to speaking with you to plan the creation of your artwork.
All of our portrait commissions are accepted by appointment.

To provide you with the most unforgettable portrait experience, we block out two hours of private studio time and dedicate four staff members to your family. To do so, we require a fully refundable booking deposit to secure your reservation and ensure your commitment. This deposit is completely refunded to you when you arrive at your appointment. Space is limited as our talented artists can only complete a limited number of portrait commissions per year.
Rescheduling an appointment with less than two weeks notice will result in a loss of the reservation fee. Reservation fees on appointments rescheduled with more than two weeks notice are applied to the new appointment and will be refunded on the day of the appointment. Reschedules must be made by phone and are not accepted via email. The reservation fee is not refundable for permanently cancelled appointments.
We do not photograph children under the age of 5 without adults in the portrait unless otherwise noted.
