Cell Phone Magic

Curious about what the personal photos look like that I use in my portraits? Here is an example! They don’t have to be perfect! I can make anything work! I used these three cell phone pictures from a client to make a portrait of her children and their dog.

Recently, Barney, the beloved dog of these two children passed away. They missed him so much that they wanted to create a picture in memory of him. So, I asked them, if they could spend one more day with Barney, what would they want to do with him and it could be anything! This is what they came up with. The double rainbow symbolizes their two wishes coming true.

Miss G’s Beginnings

Miss G’s Giraffe is the very first whimsical portrait I ever made and defined my style! I used many stock images until I could create the portrait from my imagination. It was like finding all the little pieces of the puzzle. Did you know some of my images contain almost 50 different stock images? This one only had 7!

Behind the Scenes – Stock Images

I found this picture that was taken by one of my assistants without my knowledge…lol!  It’s my favorite spot to take stock pictures. I often wonder what goes on in the minds of people passing by when they see me on the ground taking pictures of toys…lol!

Behind the Scenes

A little peek behind-the-scenes for your evening enjoyment…A lot of people have been asking me about what the personal photos of the dogs looked like that I used for my Afternoon Tea Pet Portrait. Here are the exact three pictures I used to create Afternoon Tea. I asked the pet owner to take a picture of her dogs with their paws on a table. The rest is Photoshop magic!

Close-Up Afternoon Tea

Each and every portrait I create is custom made right down to the tiny little details. You normally can’t zoom in here, so I thought I would zoom in for you! I created this portrait based on the personality of each dog, as explained to me by the pet owner in the description below.

The Pet Owner’s Imaginary Idea: Although my specialty is children’s portraits, I also create pet portraits. This request came from a pet owner! She really wanted to have a portrait of her dogs having an elegant tea party. She pictured a Victorian style Old English outdoor tea party, complete with chandelier hanging from the tree and fancy hats.

Katie is the beautiful sophisticated senior dog fanning herself in the back. She prefers the coolness of the shade. She is elegant and wise, looking very fashionable in her pink dress. Emma, on the left, is the diva of the group! She is the leader of the pack and a total drama queen. She has been featured on Target Boots & Barkley pet products recently and even has her own dog blog! Emma just loves the color red! Bailie, on the right, is the baby of the group and looks up to the other two dogs. She is a very goofy dog and loves the colors brown and orange. She wants to be just like them!

Be sure to check out Emma’s very own dog blog!
