I work from photos provided by the client. If you do not have a photo of the desired pose, I can work with you using a series of photos to create one. Separate images can be used to place a number of pets or people together in one portrait. Photos can be sent through e-mail to Laharstudios@yahoo.com. Please provide CLEAR, QUALITY digital photos. Larger photos help to provide the artist with the detail needed to create a realistic lifelike portrait. Your satisfaction with the artwork is most important! Taking screen shots of facebook or instagram photos are NOT good quality.

I do realize that it may be impossible to find a good quality photo if you are planning a surprise. In this case I will do my best to work from reference photos to add the desired detail.
