Memorial Portrait FAQs

What is the difference between a portrait and a still life?

A portrait is an illustration of a person or animal, capturing not just their likeness but also conveying a particular mood or personality. On the other hand, a still life focuses on inanimate objects such as flowers, food, or musical instruments. In a still life, an artist exhibits their expertise in capturing the interplay of shapes, light, and shadow.

What size should memorial photos be?

To create a solemn and informative atmosphere at a funeral ceremony, consider using picture sizes of 16 x 20 inches (40.64 x 50.8 cm) next to the casket. For entrance photos, the ideal size is 8 x 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm), while program photos are best displayed in 5 x 7 inches (12.7 x 17.78 cm).

How do I choose a memorial photo?

When selecting a photo, ensure it is not cropped and is in focus. Opt for a well-lit photo that clearly shows facial details. Natural-looking photos are recommended, while overly saturated or touched up photos should be avoided. Additionally, pay attention to the background and prioritize high resolution, digital images.

What photo should you use for a funeral?

For a formal and educational approach, emphasize the importance of commemorating their memory by showcasing photographs that reflect their personality and cherished belongings. Furthermore, don't forget to include images that capture noteworthy milestones in their journey.
