Sincere Apologies, the Private Commissions Service is now closed. Text remains below for the records.
Heavens to Betsy’s artist and founder, Nancy Ellis, provides you with a unique opportunity to commission an illustration of your child, in her vibrant and distinctive children’s book style.
Here’s a handy step by step guide to ordering:
- Have a rummage through your photos and select some favourites.
- Identify whether your photo is a Moment or a Portrait piece (see below for descriptions)
- Choose whether you would prefer a black and white or colour illustration
If you’re finding it tricky to choose a photo, help is at hand!
Simply email a selection and I’d be more than happy to help you make that decision.
Where the subject is engaged in an activity or generally unaware that the photo has been taken. Faces are either side on/ looking down/ facing away from the camera.
A Portrait commission is where the subject is facing directly or 3⁄4 towards the camera.
Bespoke Books, Greetings Cards, Favourite Toy Portraits and more.
Nancy offers a completely bespoke service to all her clients, often discussing specific requests for larger scale projects. For more information, drop Nancy a line for a chat with no obligation.
I need to cancel my order
After this time, there’s a likelihood that work would have started on the commission and therefore it wouldn’t be possible to cancel.
