See below for ordering process details


Step 1 - Contact Marcie

Go to the "Contact the Artist" page and complete the inquiry form.  Include any applicable details, notes and a brief description about your portrait.

Step 2 - Discuss Portrait Details and Submit Photos

Marcie will contact you via email to discuss your portrait once your inquiry is received.  At this point, she will typically request photos that can be transmitted via email.

IMPORTANT TIPS FOR PHOTOS -  The best photos are the ones that are candid and show the subject's personality or capture a special moment. We are creating a piece of art not redoing a professional sitting. Marcie can easily fix superficial things like hair, clothes and surrounding objects, but I do not adjust facial and body positions as those are unique to the subject. Photos should clearly show subject details. If you are not sure if a photo will work Marcie can help and advise.  Any professional photos to be used for a portrait, must have a release included.

Step 3 - Receive a Quote and Estimated Completion Date

After discussing the details of your portrait and receiving acceptable photos, Marcie will email you a quotation and estimated completion date for the portrait.


When the portrait is finished, Marcie will send a digital photo for your review and approval.  Once approval is provided, you can make a payment electronically via PayPal or mail a check. Once payment is confirmed, the portrait will be shipped via USPS or UPS.  A tracking number will be provided via email.
