birth celebrations

birth celebration commissions.

The celebration of a new life entering this world is a priceless moment in time. I will work with you to create a work of art that captures the essence of this celebratory day and this new chapter of parent-hood you are embarking on. You can decide to focus the commission on the phases of pregnancy, the birth, or even your vision for the future. We can include dates, names, actual images, cards, captions or journal entries: the sky is the limit! It will be a visual translation of this once-in-a-lifetime moment that will last forever.


Working with me on a birth celebration commission includes the following:

  • One-hour listening session (in person or via skype if necessary) I will meet with you and your partner and listen with all my heart to truly understand the power behind your new union. We will talk about whatever you would like to share in an effort to gather ideas for imagery, color and emotion we would like to portray in the piece. My heart will be open to all that you are gifting me during this time and will practice full confidentiality as we move forward through this process.

  • We will discuss size and framing thoughts so we can project costs appropriately. Birth Commissions range from $500 - $2000, unframed.

  • If desired, i can share sketches about my initial ideas. (Not all clients want this - it is not required)

  • We will set a schedule to create the work. If it is collaborative we will schedule our times to meet and create together.

Once you make your deposit, we will set up our listening session.  I look forward to listening to your story and creating something together!
