TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THE INFO BELOW!
IF YOU DO NOT GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL AFTER SIGNING UP, PLEASE check to see if you are on the Sign Up a few hours later or email us. We have been having a few issues lately regarding appts being canceled due to payment issues connected to tight security with the payment system. If this happens please let us know!
If you cannot pay online and would like to schedule an appointment contact the artist at [email protected]*
SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS/GENERAL FAQ:
Please schedule one appointment for each individual. For example, a family of four would schedule four separate appointments. For each appointment you will receive one matted silhouette.
The appointment is for 10 minutes but the child only sits for about 5 minutes. The artist is very experienced with wiggly children and can almost always capture them in silhouette with your help and cooperation. Your job is to keep the child looking ahead as much as possible while the artist works her magic using whatever means you need. If you are using a phone as a distraction have that ready by the time the child is sitting! They are welcome to sit on your lap, too of course. No eating during the silhouette please, that can be a special treat for after.
A deposit of $37, the cost of the silhouette, is required to hold each appointment. This cost covers the original matted silhouette, and unless purchasing frames and/or duplicates, you will have nothing else to pay the day of the appointment.
DUPLICATES, MATTING, and FRAMES:
You may order duplicates (cut at the same time as the silhouette, using multiple sheets of paper at once) for $15/per copy at the time of your appointment. The duplicates are fantastic and affordable GIFTS!
Each silhouette comes matted. You may opt to put families together on one mat and the artist carries several size mats for this purpose. Traditional silhouette frames are available and are high quality, hard to find, all wood black oval frames with a gold leaf inner rim in sizes 5x7 at $35, suitable for one silhouette and 8x10 at $45, suitable for 2-3 silhouettes. The artist frames the silhouettes at the time of your appointment.
*PETS AND SILHOUETTES FROM PHOTO
We do pets by photo only. Please do not schedule an appointment to bring a photo of your pet or person. We are more than happy to work with you on a silhouette by photo outside of the event and encourage you to contact us at [email protected] to chat about that!
CANCELATIONS and REFUNDS:
Should you find you need to cancel your appointment, please do so within 48 hours of the event by contacting the artist Marcella at [email protected] or (774) 200-5461. After the 48 hour time limit, the deposit is non-refundable, barring any emergency situations (we are flexible if you have something really pressing come up! We get that life sometimes throws us a curve ball. We are very willing to work with you on a case by case basis!)
Please contact the artist, Marcella, at [email protected] or (774) 200-5461 with any questions.
