Sketch Portrait

This is the shortest and most concise of our offerings. It is ideally suited to remembering specific events or celebrating a moment in time.

A Sketch Portrait might capture the thoughts and feelings of a group of friends at a bridal or baby shower, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. A couple talking about the experience of having their first baby. A retiring teacher’s reflections on a life of shaping young people’s minds. The thoughts of someone who has just gained their American citizenship.  An athletic victory or artistic triumph that should be commemorated.

Pricing begins at $1,450.
