1st Meeting--  Written agreement:  Once the client has made the decision to commission a portrait, a written agreement is prepared.  The agreement will specify the number of subjects, size, price, degree of formality, and other details.   Deposit (usually 50%) of the estimated total is required to begin the work.  Schedule time and location of photo session.

2nd Meeting--  Photo Session:  A time frame of about 2 hours is needed to take the photos.  Only those poses (usually 3) which would best translate into a painted portrait are selected by the artist to develop into small color sketches.   Schedule a time (about 2 weeks later) to view the 2-3 sketches for approval.

3rd Meeting--  Color Sketches:  Client approval of selected pose with choices of facial expressions.  Any necessary changes are discussed for the larger painting.

4th Meeting--  Delivery:  Upon completion of painting, arrangements are made for the delivery of the portrait.  Remaining balance is due including cost of frame when applicable.
