I recently discovered that a designer I worked with at my last agency has begun doing custom portraits. They’re so cute. I got one for a wedding gift for my cousin and his wife. It’s of them, their boxer mix and cat. She even made the boxer have one brown eye and one blue just like theirs. The finished print was beautiful, completely exceeded my expectations. Pretty much everyone at my office that saw it wanted one. They just bought a new house so it was nice to be able to give them something for their new home that will remind them of their wedding every day.
It makes a great wedding/engagement present, baby gift, etc, it has their initials and wedding date on it. Check her out at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BashfulOnion
