This is your moment

This is your life, girl! Embrace it!
We, as women, have this ideal in our minds.  What we want ourselves to look like, How we expect ourselves to feel. All too common, I hear women make excuses for not achieving their desires, and putting themselves at the bottom of their to-do lists.  I, myself, am often my own worst critic.  It ends here. 

You are a bad ass, amazing just as you are. Accept that. 
Embrace your flaws. 
Love your imperfections. 
Hug those curves.
Flaunt your bad-assery. 
It is what makes you, you.

What does a boudoir session at Vanessa Yoss Photography cost? 

My boudoir experience is $349.
This includes your hair & makeup application, your wardrobe and style consult, your photoshoot with full posing guidance, and your  same day image viewing and ordering session. Images are not included in your boudoir experience session fee.
Digital images, a la carte products, and amazing collection options can be purchased separately. A la carte products start at $450 collections start at $1500; The average client investment is 3500 but you can invest as little or as much as you wish!

Do you edit all of my images? 

Yes! A brief edit is done immediately after your session to get your images "client viewable". Once your order is placed, I hand edit each purchased image in my VYP style so your images are ready to turn into amazing artwork!  A typical edit includes basic skin retouching, blemish removal, contrast and other artistic edits. I DO NOT "nip & tuck" images unless it is specifically requested per image. I am a boudoir posing ninja, and i try my absolute damnedest to pose each client in the most flattering pose and lighting to show off their "assets" .  You're a Goddess just he way you are, girl! There's no need to fix you!
