When I travel to a boutique to hand cut silhouettes, parents reserve a ten minute session (per child). The hand cut silhouettes only take about two or three minutes to actually make and the rest of the time is for me adhering the silhouettes to the bristol board and pleasantries etc. You can also choose for me to take photos of your child for pencil portraits. I draw those in my home studio and return them to the boutique for you to pick up later.
