Pastel portrait by Dianne K Robbins

Schedule an appointment for an informal photosession in your home, usually about a half hour. Weather permitting, an outdoor setting can be used as well. This low key environment allows everyone, including the youngest babies, to be their authentic selves. If it is not possible for Dianne to take the photos herself, she can work from a client's good photographs.

Dianne creates a preliminary sketch. Though not a finished drawing, her preliminary sketch gives her client a clear understanding of composition, likeness and mood. This is emailed or mailed to the client. Any concerns can be addressed. There may be revisions. There may be none. Upon approval, the finished portrait is created in either rich pastel ar sensitive charcoal.The work can be done any size but usually is 18 by 24 inches or 11 by 14 inches

The work is custom matted and mounted in foam core to protect it. You may also order 8 x 10 inch giclee prints of your original. These are museum quality prints that make the ultimate gift for the grandparents. Personalized notecards with the children's names and the year can be ordered so that the art can be shared with everyone.

Dianne Robbins has put her artwork in the service of fundraising efforts of schools and charities that benefit the lives of children. She would be happy to discuss the possibility of doing that again. Prices begin at $450..dependent on the number of subjects and size of the portrait desired.
