It is not necessary to use a professional photograph. Professional photographs are great but the BestThaiArtist can do a stunning portrait from a good, clear everyday amateur photograph too. Just remember, the more detail the photo shows of the subject the better. It is most helpful when the BestThaiArtist can see faces clearly. Features such as eye color and hair color and style should be visible in the picture and/or augmented by providing additional photographs. If you are uncertain of the quality of the photo, it is recommended that you send several to the BestThaiArtist to get exactly the right details.
