A pet portrait can be the perfect way to immortalize your pet or it can make an very personal and original present for a special friend or family member. Sally Jane Turner produces beautiful portraits that are guaranteed to capture any pets likeness. All pet portraits are created from photographs she takes herself or if this is not possible can be supplied by the client. Sally is based in Elmley Castle, Pershore, Worcestershire but has created portraits for clients from as far away as Australia. Watch this video below to find out more or click on this link if you browser has stopped it running.


All Sally's pet portraits are created from high resolution photographs that are then digitally art worked. Any images supplied by the client will need to meet her approval for quality and resolution. If in doubt feel free to contact Sally for advice. Once a commission is accepted a photoshoot will be arranged for a mutually acceptable time and location unless the image is being supplied by the client.

Please note - There must be a competent handler present with the pet at the time of the photo-shoot. Also please make sure the pet is ready to be photographed on Sally's arrival as she is not responsible for grooming.

During the photoshoot Sally will take several photographs to ensure she has a suitable selection to work from. the client is welcome go through these with her at the time to shortlist those images that are preferred or they may leave this choice totally up to sally to decide. Either way, it is often not until an image is viewed at full size on a PC monitor that the suitability of the image can be confirmed.

Most of the portraits Sally creates have a plain background but if desired a natural background of view can be used. this should be discussed with Sally at the time of the photoshoot as it may not be possible to change it after this time. Once the photos have been taken and the image selected, Sally will art work it to produce a proof image. The proof will be sent to the client for approval. changes can be made at this stage where necessary. Once approved and paid for the pet portrait will be printed using oil based inks that resist fading for up to 70 years. All pet portraits are then mounted using a neutral coloured card. Mount colour may vary to best suit the image. If a specific mount colour is required this can be requested when placing the order.

In addition to the pet portraits Greetings Cards can also be created and ordered as required.
