Order a Portrait


In addition to portraits of themselves, people often commission my half-hour portraits of their children to give as gifts to spouses and other family members. I also paint individual portraits of members of wedding parties and family reunions.

If you live outside the NYC / Westchester County area, I will paint your portrait from a photo.

Here are some general photo guidelines:
  • The photo should be fairly close up to the face, so that I can really see your features well.
  • Natural light is best, though not a requirement. Even better is natural light from one side of the face, as if the sun were shining on one side of you, putting the other side in some shadow.
  •  A small smile is just fine, but a big grin with lots of teeth will not look natural in a portrait. (Imagine if you had to hold that smile for an entire live portrait sitting!)
Please send your photo to jessica@jessicamillerpaintings.com. Feel free to send more than one photo, and together we can decide on the best one.

Half-hour portrait payment is required in full to begin. For all paintings except half-hour portraits, payment is made in two installments: a 50% deposit to start, and the balance upon completion of the painting. Payment can be made in the form of a check or money order.
