About Paula

 

Hello. My name is Paula Thorne and I'm an artist. One of my artistic services is to bring people who live far apart together into one picture. The idea started when my 95 year old father-in-law, who was in ill health, came to live with us in Texas.  He really missed his long time friend who lived in New York City.  He wanted to visit her but couldn't because of his failing health so I created a picture of him sitting next to her with their arms entwined.  You can see that picture below.  I call this "As If You Were There photos" and am able to make them for any number of occassions, like for a milestone birthday, or for a military son or daughter away on assignment.  I can even place the individuals in a new background to make them look like they are in a special location like a beach in paradise.  I would love to make one of these portraits for you.  I can create it and send it to you in a matter of a few days.

Below are a few examples from my portfolio of my work.

If you are interested in having an As If You Were There portrait made for you, please give me a call at
(281) 543-1217,
text me at that same number, or send me an email to
photos@paulathorneimpressions.com
and I'll get back to you the next day. I do have a more extensive website but prefer this simpler, more personal approach of connecting with you. 
Plus, since making these portraits are such customized products, talking in person will ensure that I create the portrait just the way you want it.

Packages start at $119 but can be less when I'm running specials.

 You can place your order through the website,
but there are a lot of instructions and options to choose from which may make doing it yourself feel a bit too daunting or troublesome. 
If you get frustrated with it, please don't hesitate to call me. I can help you quickly pick the options you want so we can get your order started.
