Ana welcomes your requests for commissioned work and will gladly provide you with a beautiful, high-quality portrait of yourself, your loved ones, or even your cherished pet or home! All you need to do is send a photograph that clearly depicts the subject. (It is a good idea to send some additional photos so that she gets a better idea what the subject is like.) When possible, Ana prefers to take her own photographs.

Photo Tips

The quality of the photos is very important. You will get the best possible likeness from the best possible photos. Tips for taking good quality photos are as follows:

  • Send a sharp, well focused picture, the larger the photo, the higher the quality of the portrait.

  • Photos must be clear enough and large enough to see the details in the faces.

  • If possible, try to shoot several digital images (or a whole roll of 35 mm film), from different angles and in different light. Then choose the best shots.

  • Try to have the eyes of the individual clearly visible, this is especially important, the eyes are very unique.

  • All photos will be returned (if hard copy: 35mm).
