All portraits are priced after the individual requirements for the project are discussed. Fees begin at $6,500.00 for a child's head-and-shoulders portrait of average complexity, painted approximately life-size. Fees increase proportionally for half-figure, three quarter-figure and full-figure poses and may vary according to the complexity of the background. Discounts are extended for multiple subjects in the same portrait.
Fees do not include framing, applicable sales taxes, or travel and shipping expenses. Preliminary costs, such as travel, are billed when incurred, and a non-refundable deposit of 40% is due when painting begins. The balance is due upon final approval and acceptance of the portrait.
