Lauren Lazarus is currently taking pet portrait commissions! This is a great time of year to place your order because things will really start to pick up around October for the holiday season and there is a cut off. If you’d like to purchase a gift card for a friend or family member, please reach out to her via her website. The process is simple: All she needs is a good photo to paint from that can either be emailed or texted to her. If you want to purchase a pet portrait from her for someone else but don’t have a good picture, then a gift card is the best way to go. She can then communicate to the pet owner directly and work on getting a great photo to paint. Her motto: “The better the picture the better the painting!”
