tips on taking a good photo?

since each silhouette is hand-illustrated, it is best to have a good quality photo for reference. it will help create the most realistic version possible.

  • photo should be eye level with the person you are photographing

  • it’s best if the person is looking straight forward so their neckline is natural,

  • tip: for a child having someone stand in-front of them, use a toy, or ask them to look out a window

  • make sure their face is fully turned so you can only see one of their eyes

  • photo should capture below the shoulders, above the head, and all of the hair

  • smiles are beautiful but once it is in a flattened silhouette it doesn’t always look like the photo. a relaxed closed mouth is usually preferred

  • ensure you like the hair style as it will be drawn as shown in the picture (while using my own artistic style)

  • long hair: looks best pulled up.  However, if you’d prefer it down then pull it back away from the shoulders

  • background: a light solid colour wall is preferred

  • images are best taken during daylight hours, it creates good lighting and sharper images

  • photos taken with your your phone is ok as long as it is nice and clear

when will my silhouette be completed?

every silhouette is custom hand-illustrated,  it takes time to make it perfect.  once the image has been uploaded and you receive an upload approval email, the silhouette print will be shipped within 1-3 week time period. you will then receive shipping confirmation!
