Baby and child portraits are based on a high quality photograph of their face captured in profile. It can be tricky getting profile shots of your little one, so if it is more face-on that can be accommodated. Check out the FAQs on taking the best photograph for your portrait.

The baby and child portraits are drawn on A5 white, smooth, Bristol Board paper (250 gsm). The paper is acid free which helps to preserve the drawings for longer. In addition, a fixative spray is used on completed portraits to protect the pencil from accidental smudging. The pencils used are Faber-Castell 9000 graphite pencils.

The Portrait Shop does not provide framing services, but can use the services of a local framer who provides exceptional bespoke framing. If you have any questions, or would like me to source a frame on your behalf, this can happily be discussed further when you order.

*Each baby or child portrait takes 2 to 4 weeks to complete, but this time may be less or more depending on workload – you will be advised further at the beginning and throughout the process. Of course, if you have a strict deadline in mind, please provide details as soon as you can so this can be accommodated.

Regular updates and progress pictures are shared on The Portrait Shop Facebook and Instagram pages, so give follow along there and you might just see yours being made!


A5 dimensions are 21 x 14.8 cm or 8.3 x 5.8 inches


Portraits are packaged in A5 card-backed envelopes. Postage is Royal Mail First Class Recorded delivery and portraits are posted within 1 to 2 days of completion with an estimated delivery time of 2 business days.

    Absolutely LOVE this!

    Such a unique and special picture to have. I’m in awe every day of how it looks exactly like my girl, right down to the spark in her eyes.

    I ordered a portrait for my friend as a birthday present and I absolutely love it! The portrait is such a resemblance and I will definitely be ordering one of my little boy in time for Christmas!
