Photo Tips for Perfect Silhouettes

  • Place subject in front of a well-lit background, facing either left or right.
  • Only one side of the face must show on the photo and entire head should be in the photo.
  • A relaxed face helps to show the features (eyelashes, nose, lips) more realistically although smiling faces are cute too. It's up to you how you want to photograph them.
  • Pictures taken with a phone camera work too. Just make sure to take the photos in good lighting, during the daytime is preferred.
  • If photographing more than one person, take individual pictures.
  • Remember to take the picture straight at eye level with the person you are photographing, standing about 2-4 feet away.
  • If person has long hair (past the shoulder line) put it up. Ponytails, braids, messy buns really do make for cute silhouettes and add character to the final silhouette.
  • For full body silhouettes, take a picture of the people standing, walking away or towards the camera. This works well when photographing siblings.
  • When photographing babies, try taking the picture when they are asleep. Hold the camera directly above their face, with only one side of the face showing.

Very happy with necklace

I finally purchased my first VCS piece and I’m very happy with it. The medium charms show a lot of detail and are accurate to my photos and likeness of my children. The design team were helpful and accommodating in answering questions and updating small details. I didn’t purchase a special chain - just got the regular sterling silver chain which is nice and delicate - I like that it’s extendable as even though I usually prefer 16” necklaces, the 18” suits the size of the charm better. I bet it would look great with the small paper clip chain - I already have one and thought I’d be able to try it out, but the rings on the charms are quite small and they won’t come off the original chain. FYI that if you have an old hotmail account, you might not receive the draft silhouette email.. I had to reach out and give them my Gmail email instead.
