The Vanessa Yoss Photography Experience

Why should you want to choose Vanessa Yoss Photography? 

When you book your portrait photography session with
Vanessa Yoss Photography, you aren't just getting photographs, you're getting an experience.  

the process

Your consultation:   In person, or via Zoom; this is where our relationship starts.  We get to know eachother, and I get to learn exactly what you're style is, what your needs are, and if  I'm the perfect photographer for you.   We'll discuss your artwork wish list and you get to check out all of my gorgous luxe products.  This is something you need to SEE.  and TOUCH.  Our Products are the highest quality and are truely stunning.  

 You're ready to book?  GREAT!
 All of your session details will be drawn up in a simple, easy to understand contract. We'll go over every detail together.   Your session fee (retainer) is due at this time. Once your contract is signed and your retainer is paid, we set a date for your session ( or your wedding date). 
Once your session is booked, we'll discuss the details.  Studio or on Location?  Style, wardrobe, etc.   

Session Day:  Come in to our studio and be pampered with full professional hair & makeup artistry by one of our amazing stylists.  Bring your favorite wardrobe pieces, or select a few from our ever growing client closet!  Less is more is not true here, bring it all! Options are awesome! 
 Let's take some photos!   We'll bring out all of your amazingness- sessions are not timed. There is no rush.    
Before you leave me, we'll go over any questions that you may have, and discuss product options and your artwork wishlist again, we'll go over full product menu pricing & collections. At this time, your product deposit is due. This deposit will be applied in full to your final product order. 

All of your images are carefully gone through by myself personally. I will carefully select only the very best images, and color correct and hand edit each image. ( portrait & boudoir |  In regard to wedding images- all properly exposed images are color corrected, lightly edited to my style and high resolution images delivered to you)
A viewing & ordering session will be scheduled approximately 10 days after your session, either at your home or in my studio.  We'll carefully select your favorite images at this time and design all of your art work, albums, folios, etc.  At this time you will place your final product order.   
Product orders generally require 2-4 weeks to fill depending on product. 
  I am currently offering payment plans. Let me know if this is something you would like to discuss.

a little bit about

Together, with my Husband Nick, our kids Lina (17), Mia (15) & Xander (13) we live in a small suburban Illinois town on the boarder of Illinois & Wisconsin.  Both being entrepreneurs,  life gets pretty busy and hectic, but when it does settle down a bit, you can find us living our best life relaxing by the lake ( or tearing it up).  We enjoy travel & seeing the country. 

I am a lover of all things creative and artsy. Love decorating  | shopping for cute things for the house |  We are constantly in the process of a remodel of some kind. Whether here or there. 
We have FIVE kitty cats. Zebb ( our Russian Blue), Nico & Nora (The twin Maine Coons) Scarlet (Bengal #1 who is 6 months ) and Our newest baby Gumball ( Bengal #2, ) Gumball and Scarlet are siblings from different litters and they LOOOOOVE each other. At this point, whats another kitty, right?
