How to order your portrait

Choose your ideal photos

When choosing the ideal photos you should consider a few things, the main things is that you can see facial details clearly. Now these don’t need to be professional quality because who has that, most smartphones have a pretty outstanding camera today so phone pictures are great.

If you have any old photos floating around in draws and you want to use them, then instead of sending them in by post just take a photo of your old photo. This will usually allow us to use your much-loved treasured photo without risking it with royal mail.
