Sliding Scale

Sliding scale means that you may negotiate the rate of your session. $200 is the full price fee but if you have financial limitations and cannot afford the full price, take a look at your budget and let Lapde know how much you are able to afford and the two of you can come to an agreed upon rate that you are comfortable with. Lapde has never once turned away a client due to finances so rest assure that you two will be able to work something out.
