I've said it before and I'll say it again, I just love custom portraits! I've been so fortunate to have such amazing patrons! My most recent works included a set of portraits done for two sisters who have been some of my biggest supporters. Needless to say, that when I found out they had no idea this was happening, I was even more excited. Also the eldest sister happens to be the one and only Let's Be Preppy (please go vote for her here to win a summer internship)! The "At the Beach" portrait was done from a photograph of them while they were younger and it just kills me it's too cute!

The second round of portraits were for a dear buddy and ex-coworker. She's down at USC and her parents have since moved from Annapolis but once an Annapolitan always an Annapolitan. I originally had the dress a different color but Emma suggested we change it to pink and I think it turned out way better (feedback is the best way to ensure a happy result!)!
Another portrait was done as a gift for Mother's day! I just love how it turned out!
