Sound interesting? Great! I am offering two price ranges for portraits. Tier 1 is black and white pencil portraits. Tier 2 is full color portraits. Project information such as size, pricing, and file format are detailed below:
Tier 1 : Black and White portrait
Rates start at $125 for 1 person or pet. Additional people or pets are + $25/person or pet.

“But wait, how much would mine cost?” If you want a quirky, full-color portrait of you, your spouse and your talkative parrot, it would be $300 ($200+$50+$50). “But, wait, I’m on a budget.” I would recommend the black and white portrait that would be $175 ($125+$25+$25). Still have a question on how much yours would cost? Feel free to email me and we can figure it out!
