I can’t say enough amazing things about Lena! She is extremely talented. Her portraits are always stunning. Love working with her!- JOSH PATTON
Get a close up of your pet. This way I can better see all of their beautiful features.
Get an eye-level shot by crouching down when taking the photo.
It is best if you take the photo when your pet is either sitting or standing, not laying down.
Light plays an important role in good photos. For best results, take your photo outdoors, in daylight.
Consider the size of the portrait. Will it be a small painting that you can display on a shelf, or a larger piece that will hang on your wall?
When it comes to portraits, the right frame can make all the difference. Not only can it enhance the aesthetic of the piece, but it also provides long-term protection.
That's why I offer four framing options with every portrait - because I believe that every client deserves to have their artwork displayed in a way that they love.
And while sometimes opting in for an unframed portrait may seem like the more budget-friendly option, it often ends up costing just as much, if not more.
By choosing one of my pre-framed options, you'll be able to hang your portrait immediately upon receiving it - no running around trying to find the right frame for your piece.
Ultimately, my goal is for you to be able to sit back and enjoy your framed portrait for years to come.
Even though it may seem like a small customization, adding your pet's name brings an extra level of charm and allows you to truly express your love for your furry friend.
And don't worry about whether you want the name included or not - simply specify that by writing "no name" in the designated text box and I'll leave it off.
A great pet portrait begins with a great photo. It should be in focus, good quality, and taken in the daylight. It is also best if the shot is taken at eye level with the pet, and not at an angle from above.
That’s okay! Feel free to upload any photo you have in mind, and if it is not suitable for a portrait, I will reach out to you and help you pick the right one.
Lena painted a portrait and we love it so much. She has also done fabulous portraits before. I am so happy to recommend her for anyone else who desires a very personalized portrait!
Lena has completed several works for me over the last few years and each and every time I am amazed at her talent and the way she brings so much life and energy to her artwork. She is so kind and professional and I will continue to recommend her to anyone needing art for a gift or themselves.
“I searched many options before choosing RomaLena for my pet portraits. I admit I was very afraid of being disappointed but it's just the opposite - I'm in love. The quality is excellent, the portraits are not digital (like so many other vendors) they're actually hand-painted water colors and they arrived exactly on time. My framer even commented that he had framed a lot of pets and this style was the nicest he had seen”
My custom pet portraits are hand painted with authentic watercolors on the highest-quality museum rated paper.
Receive yours in 3 simple steps:
1 - Choose your style
I offer two styles of portraits. The first is the "classic" style, which captures the pet's head and shoulders in great detail.
The second is the "peekaboo" style, which is a playful take on the traditional pet portrait.
Whichever style you choose, I guarantee that your pet's personality will shine through in the finished painting.
2 - Choose size
Consider the size of the portrait.
Will it be a small painting that you can display on a shelf, or a larger piece that will hang on your wall?
