Weddings, Corporate Events and other Festive Occasions

Arts & Crafts Show , and Street Fairs

Stores, Schools, Museums and Holiday Celebrations

A Silhouette Station is an elegant and artistic addition to any festive occasion. your guests will love watching silhouettes being cut and being able to take home a gift that will be cherished for years. I cut two silhouettes at a time so I can put the duplicate into a guest book and have the guest sign beneath their portrait. This is a wonderful keepsake for the wedding couple to cherish.

Several times a year, Varin will set up at fairs in Ohio. This year she will be at "Chardon Art Festival", "Made in Ohio" and "Yankee Peddler."

The vintage aesthetic of the silhouette makes it a perfect fit for museums and events with an historic theme. 

Since children look so adorable, schools and children's boutiques are a favorite for this art form. There is often no charge to the venue for me to visit your school or store, so please contact me for details. The parents will love it!

The Photo


Creating a good silhouette starts with the photo. There are just a few things to keep in mind.

  1. If possible, have the subject stand against a blank wall.

  2. The subject should not be smiling. A relaxed mouth is the best, not wide open or pursed or grimacing.

  3. Shoot "through the ear" or at ear level.

  4. Include entire head and shoulders.


Look at the picture to see if it looks like the subject. Take several pictures if you are not sure.

For very young children I suggest you take it when they are watching TV and for dogs, having another person hold a treat will help them to look to the side. As with people, take the picture at ear level.

Email the photo to varin@sweet-silhouette.com and order the silhouette from this website.
