Possessive pronouns are, in short, exactly that: they are the pronouns that help us show possession in the English language. Usually to show possession, we have two options that are grammatically correct. First, we can use an apostrophe and an s:
In singular possessive terms, place the apostrophe before the "s." This will indicate ownership by one person or thing. For example: I would you rephrase your sentence as "Sara's portrait".
