Father and son silhouette portrait

Our silhouettes are a modern take on a traditional way of preserving precious memories of your children's early years or any special moments in your life. Destined to become a family heirloom, these images become more precious as the years roll by.

Available as an 16x11" giclee print (absolutely the best quality professional print you can find, printed on fine art finish 300gsm archival paper) or as a PDF to download and print yourself. To purchase a PDF version please see the 'Custom PDF portraits' section in our shop.

Ordering your custom silhouette is easy!

Email us a photo or two of your subject and we will send you a proof within the next few days.Once you are happy with the portrait we will print and dispatch your print. Please allow 10-15 days for delivery.
Alternatively we can send you your portrait as a full res PDF file which you can print out yourself or take to your local printshop.


For head and shoulder portraits:

Place your subject in profile against a light background.

Make sure your subject is looking straight on (not slightly toward you or the background)
and is nice and relaxed, mouth closed if possible.

Position yourself at eye level with your subject.

Be sure to include the entire head and shoulders.

For girls, hair worn up in a ponytail can add more interest to the portrait.

Don't worry about being too neat - any stray curls or hairs add some charm to the portrait!

For full figure portraits:

Try to keep subjects faces in profile.

Keep poses simple.

And that's it. Happy snapping!
Oh and please be sure that the pics are reasonably high res - blurry won't fly...

Please feel free to email us if you have any questions or ideas of your own.
