Become a Living Portrait with High Five Hannie

Dale Portrait 1.JPG

Become a real, live portrait in just an hour. Hannah Bingham of High Five Hannie will paint your portrait in real time. The unique catch is, it’s going to be of you, on you! Shawn Poynter of Poynter Photo Co. will take a collection of photographs of you, in your painted state, which you’ll be able to use as the coolest profile photo of all time. This will definitely give you something to brag about and maybe even something to scratch off of your Bucket List.

You can be painted solo or with a friend or sweetheart! If you’d like to be photographed as a couple, make sure to select “couple” at check out and schedule consecutive time slots.

You’ll be painted and photographed from the shoulders up. With your choice of “nude” portrait, your shoulders bare and painted (giving the illusion that you’re sophisticatedly nude), or wearing a shirt you’d like to be photographed in (but that can be painted on).

The paint is fragrance free, water based face paint, made for sensitive skin and washes off with soap and water. Paint used on your shirt will be water based, acrylic paint, but wont come out. Prepare to come human and leave portraited.
