The procedures for a portrait using your reference photo are basically the same as usual, except that you will need to submit your photo to me, ahead of time, to see if it is suitable for use as a portrait subject.  A good photograph does not necessarily make a good portrait, depending, for one thing, on the lighting.  I prefer non-flash photos with a directional light source.  Also, it helps to send a few supporting photos, to help me to get a sense of the character and natural postures of the subject.  The main photo of your choice should be sent to me as a jpeg file of medium to high resolution, file size around 1 MB, and it should be a photo with no copyright attached.

A 10% discount is offered on the price of the portrait, if using your reference photo.
