How to Order a Portrait

Ordering your pets portrait is easy! All I need are a few favorite photos and a size to create original artwork that looks just like your pet to treasure forever.


I only use the highest quality archival papers, boards and artist materials for all of my portraits. This allows for beautiful tones that are light-fast to protect them from fading. Your portrait will look as good as the day it was finished for centuries! 

Want to give a portrait as a gift?

Prepare to be their new favorite person (and probably for some happy tears!) Portraits are hands-down one of peoples' most memorable and precious gifts they've ever received, especially if the pet has passed away. All you need is a photo or two!

Contact me for more information on gift portraits.


My Tori was the sweetest girl you could ever meet. My best friend. Thank you Risa for capturing her everything in this portrait. Her spirit lives on and she’s back in the living room, watching over us, once again. Thank you!!
— Jill, Tori's Mom


How does it work?


Send me your absolute favorite pictures of your pet.

Pick high quality (big & not blurry) photographs that show the eyes and important markings. If a pet has passed away, I'll happily work with whatever photos you have available.

Fun fact! - I can easily combine multiple photographs to create a unique pose if a single one doesn't quite capture the details or pose you would like.


Send at least a 50% deposit. 

This will hold your place in line, cover the initial costs of setting up the artwork, and make sure you're the real deal!

Once I start working I'll send you snapshots and post updates on my social pages for you to share with friends and family (unless it's a secret gift, of course!). 


Your portrait is done! Any remaining balance is due & your portrait is sent to you!

When you approve the final artwork, it's time to send it home. All portraits are packaged very carefully to avoid damage and shipped with insurance and tracking. Framing discounts through are available upon receipt.

Shipping & packaging is always $10, even if it costs more!
Payments are accepted through Paypal, Check, or Bank Transfer.
