Viewing and Ordering
Typically 10-12 days after your portrait session you will return for your viewing and ordering appointment. Our viewing room offers a cozy atmosphere with state of the art projection, perfect for viewing and selecting your images. During your ordering appointment, you will receive guidance in selecting the perfect display options for your works of art.

Pick Up
Orders usually take 5-7 days from your ordering appointment to arrive at our studio. When your portraits are ready for pick up, we will call to schedule a time so that we can ensure we are available to meet with you. At this time we can also review framing options for your artwork.
