2. Will the illustrations be life like pictures?

No, I use cartoon style of illustration. They will not be life like pictures. Please refer Sample Custom Picture Book for an idea.

To begin with, I collect basic information such as the child’s name, the names and relationships of the other characters the child would like to see in the book, the reading level, the interests of the child and so on. Apart from the above basic information, I would request you to give any other detail which you may deem fit to make the book extra special. These could even be things like a toy that child likes to hold on to at all times or a particular song that helps the child associate with the memory that you are trying to preserve and so on.
