How It Works
Choose Your Photo
Pick your favorite photo of your pet. Review our image guidelines for inspiration and the types of photos that will make the best digital portrait.
Visit our Etsy shop and pick the design you want. When ordering, choose the size and background color - and check if you would like to include your pet's name.
Sit, Stay, Roll Over
Okay, you do not have to actually roll over. Hold tight while your pet's portrait is created. Most orders ship within 1 - 2 weeks.

What Makes A Good Photo
We know you have plenty of images to choose from. Let's make sure you pick a portrait photo that will stand out.
The image you provide as a reference is important. It will determine the quality of the final portrait and will help ensure a speedy turnaround. Let's review the following tips and guidelines to make sure the image you submit will be a great fit:
Choose a photo that is taken in daylight or a brightly lit room.
Use a smartphone or high quality camera. Please no blurry images.
Avoid overly filtered photos that may make it difficult to capture your pet's coloring.
Ensure the whole face and neck are visible and not covered by shadows.
Ask your pet to sit pretty. Make sure your pet is looking directly at the camera at eye level, facing forward.
Only include accessories if you want them in the final portrait. Collars, leashes, harnesses, bows, and other outfits will be illustrated in the final portrait if they are visible in the photo submitted.

Need Help Choosing Your Photo?
Not sure if the image you have chosen falls within these guidelines? I would love to help! Contact me by emailing or through the form below with any questions and concerns.
Do you do pets other than dogs and cats?
Yes! Our pets come in all shakes and sizes. That includes those with fur, scales, and even feathers. I would love to create a portrait for you no matter what type of animal.
Can I preview my art before it is printed and shipped?
No, sorry! My goal is to create a wonderful portrait for you and to make sure it arrives to you in time. Because of this, I cannot offer a preview as it would likely delay shipment.
Do you create pet memorials?
Absolutely! I am always honored for people to trust me to create a portrait of a beloved pet who has passed. If you are interested in a memorial portrait, you can select the "In Memory" option on the listing you choose. You can also contact me directly, and I will help walk you through the process - including helping you choose a photo off of which to base the portrait.

I am so glad you asked! Check out the Image Guidelines for tips of photos that work the best for portraits. I have even included examples of my own furbaby, Gigi!
How is this portrait made?
All portraits are created digitally, hand-drawn on a tablet based on the image you provide. The final digital art is then printed and shipped directly to you!
What happens if I select "In Memory" on my order?
I have included this option for people who are ordering a portrait of a pet who has passed. This is just to let me know to reach out to you to see if you need any help choosing a photo and if there are any additional customizations you wish to include on the portrait, like date of birth to death.
What is your return policy?
Due to the custom nature of pet portraits, I am unable to accept returns or full refunds. If you are truly unhappy with your final product, please contact me within 24 hours of receiving your delivery to see if there is some way that I can help.
