I am going to visit at Price Daniel Saturday, Sept. 13th and the lady told me they would be taking pictures. That's great, but we can't have a contact visit, so how does the picture thing work for that?:confused:

I know I was confused the first time too...but they take one of him by himself. If you decided to take one yourself it'll just be you in the pic. They'll ask you who's gonna keep the pic you or him.

Hope this helps...:)

They can and will take a pic of you sitting on the ledge of the booth and him behind you on the other side of the glass. They used to do this at Stiles all the time but I haven't seen it done at Beto. There was an officer who took pride in the pics she took and how she could get the camera not to catch the glare. There aren't many like her that could do it but it is possible to have one "together" that way. Otherwise, it will be as described above.

When Ron was over there, they would just take a pic of him or just me. Not one together or even on the ledge. This has been about six months, hope things have changed since this time. Good Luck on getting your pic.

I guess it depends on the unit and how it's built...

Guess I will just wait until Saturday and see what the day brings. Just seeing R.G. will be enough for me. Thanks to all of you for your support.

We just got some taken at our last visit and I ask the CO if we could sit in the Corner on the ledge . I was sitting on one side and my sweetie was sitting on the other side ( remember the window between us ) right behind me , I had ask the CO if he could take it from an angle because of the flash , which with the digital camera there was no flash :o . One pic together and one by himself . I got the pictures and will go to walmart to the scanner they have there and get the pictures adjusted and get some printed out for him and send it to him .

Well, pictures may be the least of my problems. With Ike just around the corner, i just may need to do the visit some other time. Heavy rain in the Dallas area or in West Texas. Who knows? But thanks to everyone for all the info. If I can just get R.G. to request a contact visit then everything will be good. But he is hard headed! Part of why I love him. Take care.

Odd as it sounds I saw some relatively beautiful wedding pictures taken like that. My first look was the smiling couple, then I pan back to the separation and the setting,actually very nice.

My only suggestion is "melting" the two together wth Photoshop, might look pretty good.

I'll PM you, but got some very bad news. He got a "serve all, but try next year " letter and is not wanting to spend another sweltering summer in Snyder.:angry:

I've seen this done - the guard will take the picture from the outside with you and him on the other side, there may be a glare - they won't allow the inmate to come out. That's how they do it.
