What is a Spoken Portrait?

A Spoken Portrait can be anything you want it to be.  After all, it is your life and your voice. We are here to help you express yourself.  

Put simply, it is a collection of whatever memories, thoughts, and engaging stories you wish to share. An audio memoir to be cherished for years to come.

You may want to speak about one specific part of your life, or share a great interest or passion. You may want to tell a longer story, with a larger cast of characters. 

Share your joy. Remember something profound or sad.  Maybe tell some jokes.  Is there a favorite song you’d like to sing? A poem you’d like to recite?  

Just as an artist uses paint and canvas, we use words and the human voice to capture the essence of who you are, and what you want to communicate. A painter uses colors and hues; we use the timbre of a voice, laughter, a vocal inflection, even moments of silence to create your portrait.

Everyone has a story to tell. Now it’s your turn.

Whatever you want to talk about, it’s up to you. Our job is to help you tell your story the way you want to tell it.  In your own words.

We will discuss everything with you in advance, and give you a short questionnaire to help you organize your thoughts before the interview.

We have several basic packages to get you started, and from there everything is tailored to your needs.

Spoken Portraits are available in three categories: the Sketch Portrait, the Profile Portrait, and the Life Portrait. 

For actors, musicians, and writers, the Performance Portrait is the perfect way to showcase your creativity in sound.

We also offer a variety of add-ons to customize your Spoken Portrait.
