How does this work?

You book your session and pay the retainer of $50 of the session fee. The balance is due the day of the session. We will set up an optional online outfit consultation and then we meetup the day the session. After your session I will send you a proof gallery to choose your images. Usually 2-3 days after session. If you choose the collection that includes an album I will create a proof and email to you for approval. Once approved & ordered it will take about 2-3 weeks to receive your products.

What should I wear?

All sessions include a virtual styling session. I’ll have you get your best options together and then we will meet on on zoom or FaceTime to plan what to wear and how to accessorize.

Don’t need help? No problem, you do you, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with for our session. I always tell clients 4 outfits on average is a good sweet spot.

Can I choose my location?

Yes. Well, kind of. We still have some of our favorite amazing locations to choose from, but for everyone’s safety and comfort, our location options are limited to those that will be easiest to avoid crowds right now. Each session has limitations.

What if it rains?

If the weather forecast is looking bad, we’ll touch base about 24 hours before our session to see if we need to reschedule.

For the Parents

You’ll receive all the full session pricing when you request a quote. My sessions start at $300. I will send you an ala carte item list after your first inquiry.

Valerie Ozella Photography is not for everyone… but you should know, I do put a lot into these sessions and my goal is to make these teens feel confident and valued. I want them to walk away with confidence and feeling good about themselves. I choose to only shoot about 40 seniors per year – because in order for me to deliver this type of service, I spend a great deal of time and energy.

Nobody EVER regretted getting beautiful images made of their child. You can’t get this time back. Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all. Email,, 707-290-1839, text or call, FB messenger.
