commission a portrait by naava

How do I start the commission process?

  1. My portrait commissions are based on your photographs as a reference (so you can be anywhere in the world!). Email me at with a high-res, well-lit photograph that you love of your child or family or mommy-and-me moment. It’s best if I can see everyone from head to toe. If you’re not sure, send me a few photos (or your social media account) and I can help you select the best images for a portrait.

  2. Before I begin drawing: Payment must be made in full, the main reference photograph must be selected and approved by you and I, and then you will receive my start date and timeline for your painting. I will stay in touch with you through the process so you can see progress.

How much does it cost?

See my investment page. Portraits are priced by the size of the paper and how many people will be included on the page. I will email you an online invoice for the project before I begin painting. I accept most payment options.

Are paintings shipped framed or with a matte?

All of my paintings are safely packaged and shipped without frames or mattes.

Do you paint full families or just children?

I’d be happy to paint your full family. All people must be in the photograph together.
