Song Portraits Process

How Getting a Song Portrait Works

For those with budgets in mind, you can choose The Song Portrait Quickie. It is written, performed, and recorded while you are on the phone with me, Skype or Facetime. The whole process takes less than a half an hour and costs $95.

The Mona Lisa Song Portrait is an in depth anthem, rich with details honoring your unique loved one.

Both come with the option of a fifteen minute phone/skype/facetime consultation.

Place your answers in bullet points and send to

After I get your answers in bullet points from you, I get to work on crafting the song. Although I can do it in a few days, it’s ideal to give me a few weeks, as my schedule might be full, and I enjoy doing this best in an unhurried manner. I’ll email you the lyrics, and you will have a chance to review them and give me feedback until it is so right that you feel certain it will be one of the best presents they ever received. Then I’ll record it and send it to you for a final chance to edit, or to give your seal of approval.

End of story, unless you want some additional services, like me showing up and singing it to your loved one live, or via Skype, phone, or FaceTime. You also have a choice to upgrade to the highest sound quality, where I record it at a state of the art recording studio, with a sound engineer and producer. Ask me about pricing for these add-ons.

Song Portraits can be arranged for birthdays, eulogies, anniversaries, retirements, graduations, businesses, websites, non-profits, causes, babies, and children. You can even have a Selfie Song Portrait!
