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.

I am so happy with it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE how my little one's silhouette turned out. I decided to go with color vs the traditional black. I am so glad i did. It truly pops against the white wall. I highly recommend VCS. The team was wonderful to answer all my questions.

Great picture, off on color

The item is wonderful. I’m fairly confident it was printed in the wrong color. If not printed in the wrong color, the color on the site is far off, and far off from the proof. I’ve compared on multiple screens and the item I received is a different color. I recognize this is a small business, so I understand there will be variability. I did reach out, and felt the question was handled well. So overall, I would rate the experience as average, but not to the right of average. I do love the print and am happy with it, but likely would have chosen a different avenue had unknown the outcome. Thank you and best of luck!

It made Nana very happy

I bought this for my mother and she loved the silhouette of my daughter. It came out great and the service was fast, responsive and the result was better than expected.

Such a great gift

I bought two for both my mother and mother-in-law for Mother's Day. This was absolutely such the perfect gift! I am thinking of ordering a third for myself!

I was so excited to receive my item (I was in love with the proof) and the post office lost it. I bought 3 - 8 x 10 prints that I was SO eager to hang and they are in la la land! I know this is not your fault, but I am also a business owner who has shipped items that have suddenly disappeared through USPS. Especially with the nature of your business, and the price to your consumer - I would look into shipping through a more reliable company.
