Pet Portrait Photo Guidelines 

The most important part of your order, crucial to the quality of the final pet portrait is the quality of the image you upload. 

Take a photo or choose an existing photo that is taken in daylight or in a brightly lit room. Natural light is always the best option, whether taken outside or indoors near a window

Use a smartphone or high quality camera.  The pet should be in a "sit" position so that the whole face and neck is visible and not in shadows.  Avoid filtered photos to ensure we correctly capture your pet's coloring.

Make sure your pet is looking directly at the camera at eye level, facing forward. This is best accomplished by crouching down to take the photo.  Please avoid overhead or blurry photos.  Do not worry about the background - our digital artists will take care of that.

Examples of a poor photo:

Photos that are not good - poor lighting, lying down, facing sideways and lying down.

Examples of a good photo:

good quality image - eyes facing straight ahead, in sit position, daylight.
