Hand drawn silhouettes turned into a precious form of wearable art! Take your pick between a raw brass or sterling silver locket on a 14k gold filled or sterling silver chain. (Please visit the raw brass listing for that option) You’ll also receive the original 5x7 silhouette painting for every addition you make to the locket.
-Hold your camera at eye level of the person you’re photographing. Make sure the front, back and top of their head is clearly in view! You should be positioned in a way that you can only see one eye while taking the photo.
-this is one photo where smiling isn’t super important. So the stress is off! (Moms everywhere rejoooiiice) a relaxed face is actually great, its classic and it will be the side view of your child you’re used to looking at. ( you know when they’re next to you playing with a toy and you just love how precious they look when their focused on something- that’s the magic.
-try to get them to look straight ahead. A favorite toy, person, YouTube video (hey Dave and Ava... you guys come in CLUTCH) grab someone to help you so you can focus on getting the photo.
-the hair doesn’t have to be perfect, however if there’s something you’d rather not have in the finished piece let me know that when you send it! Long hair looks best pulled up, crazy baby hairs look cute ALWAYS.
-phone camera are just fine, just be sure to send the highest quality photo you can and make sure it isn’t blurry.
