Newborn Baby Portraits Drawn in Pencil

The birth of a baby is an exciting time for any family...

A pencil portrait makes an impressive and cherished baby gift. Newborn baby portraits are wonderful to give as christening gifts, baptism / baptismal gifts, and adoption gifts.
Newborn baby portraits also make a wonderful gift from the new grandparents to parents, but also for new grandparents to receive a special portrait drawing of their newborn grandchild.
The pencil portraits are drawn based on photographs you provide of baby and are returned to you with the finished newborn baby portrait.

Pencil Portrait of a Little Boy

This pencil portrait is of my own son. I was in the reference photo, but since I was holding him, you could only see the side and back of my head. But I really liked the way he looked! So I drew him and didn't draw myself. This goes to show that it doesn't matter what else is in your reference photos. I can just draw the good parts.

This beautiful baby girl was a joy to draw. I was able to get a lot of good detail in because the reference photo was very clear.

Remarkable. Love the wispyness of the hair, it's perfect. the eyelashes, the little wrinkles, the nose, that little mouth. it's absolutely breathtaking. Would love to know how you did the hair. that is the part that is really impressing me. Well done Darla!

This pencil portrait drawing is titled Brianna, Safe in Daddy's Hands. It is one of my favorites. I hope that Brianna will treasure it when she's grown up. She is very sweet.
