Welcome Our Newest Portrait
Rose and her Fiance

Welcome to Rose, the newest member of the HauntedPortrait Gallery. "Rose and Jake were sweethearts, at least they were till Sterling swept Rose off her feet. Jake said that he would never let Rose go and that she'd marry Sterling over his dead body. Apparently this was a request they were willing to fulfill.". Benjamin represents the next step in refining my skills. Unlike my previous portraits, Benjamin contains a middle transition which creates a smoother morph between the beginning and end image. You can visit the newlyweds at their love nest

Since I launced my site I have bee repeated asked "Can you make a changing Haunted Portrait out of me?", well now the answer is YES. I'm proud to introduce GhostPortraits. GhostPortraits allow you to become an apparition in your own custom changing portrait. Simply provide me with a photo or high quality digital file and select the scene you wish your Ghost to appear in. In our cemetery scenes you can choose the names that change on the tombstone. The cost of design and one 11" x 14" portrait is $200 and $75 for each additional copy and this includes the FREE shipping to anywhere in the Continental USA.

I took a survey in October asking for input from my patrons. One respondent stated that she wanted to see my Portraits in a smaller size, as not every spot needs a print as big as 11" x 14". The other request I received was "Make them cheaper". The result of your input is the Mini-HauntedPortrait. The Mini-HauntedPortrait is perfect for any small space such as a bathroom and it's 5" x 7" size makes it easy to frame. At $19 each with FREE shipping, they fit into anyone's budget. Or maybe you've always wanted a HauntedPortrait but wanted to see what it looks like before you buy a large one, the Mini-HauntedPortrait is the solution. It took a lot of testing and searching for a special high-resolution lens that would allow me to shrink my micaub masterpieces down to 5" x 7". Don't let it's small size fool you, the Mini-HauntedPortrait still has the same eerie magic and detail of it's full size sister. I will be making a select number of additional works availabable as Mini-HauntedPortraits in the near future.

I know that once you own a Mini-HauntedPortrait you'll become a collector of the most unique changing portraits available anywhere. I do listen to my customers and your comments are always welcome. To order yours visit here www.hauntedportraits.com/Shirley.htm

We Care

HauntedPortraits was pleased to donate "The Count" to our good friends at www.doombuggies.com for their Making Christmas charity auction. The proceeds of this auction went to the Make-A-Wish campaign. "The Count" was specially numbered 999 in honor of the best haunted attraction in the world The Haunted Mansion. If you have a charity that could benefit from a donated HauntedPortrait please let us know. Please understand we can only donate a limited number of Portraits each year but we have been blessed with the support of the community and we want to give back when we can.

HauntedPortraits Goes International

We shipped our first Haunted portrait overseas for the holidays. HauntedPortraits now makes our work avaible Internationally using USPS Global Express Mail. Unfortunitly because of the cost we can not make this service free but the rates are resonable for those dark art lovers outside the continental US.
