TIMING

POSES

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid restrictions, meetings and poses will be adjusted according to government guidelines.

I can work from live sittings, a photograph, or a combination of both.

Live sittings can be done in my studio or at your home. Meetings take place 1-2 days per week for 1-2 hour sessions.

I can either work from a photo you already have, or I can take the photo. A photo needs to have good detail and excellent lighting.

A combination of both live sittings and photographs allows me to work with you in person while also working in my studio. When a person poses live, there is a vibrancy that is captured that I particularly love. The photo allows me to work in my studio between sittings, speeding up the process.
