I loved the photos so much, I cried when I first saw them."

art of you boudoir is amazing!

Why choose us?
There are a lot of good Austin boudoir photographers, so what sets us apart from others? With over five years of experience in the portrait industry, we’ve photographed women of all different, shapes, sizes, adult ages, and backgrounds and we’ve learned a thing or two during that time. To help you out, we’ve distilled much of it in four key points below.

Your safety & comfort is everything to us. Other than myself, I work with an all-female staff during your session. We have a dedicated changing area and offer a robe in-between sets. Knowing there’s zero risk of running into a sketchy situation during your session can make a world of difference when it comes to your comfort. For something as intimate as this, due diligence is necessary. Bottom line, regardless of a photographer's gender, a true professional will never make you feel uncomfortable.

Posing is so important. Here’s the thing, everyone thinks they need to lose five or ten pounds before coming in. You don’t. We promise. The most important thing is a photographer who knows how to direct you into a great pose that flatters your angles. A lot can be hidden through posing and the right outfit. The best photographers understand this and can coach you there with ease. During your session we will walk you through every pose, facial expression and guide you along the way.

This is an honed craft
. There are a lot of people who have fancy cameras, but making a great picture takes more than expensive gear. It takes experience. An understanding that it’s not your gear that makes a picture, but the person operating it. You can spend all the money in the world on fancy gizmos, but it’s true knowledge of how light, lens choice, angels, and timing affect your results that brings a picture to life. Experience AND talent are key when it comes to making ANY woman look fabulous. Since my journey began, I have attended The Austin School of Photography, Taken dozens of courses and even had the honor of attending The Portrait Masters Conference which is limited to a select number of photographers each year. I am also a member of the Professional Photographers of America Association and am fully licensed.

It's all about the ambiance! Where boudoir photographers take their pictures range from hotel rooms, air b&b's, to storefronts. Of course, not all locations are created equal. Here at Art of You Boudoir we host our sessions in our beautiful private in-home studio that is designed specifically for boudoir photography sessions. A place where you can feel safe and comfortable while you enjoy your double makeover, an arrangement of fragrant flowers, and delicious refreshments!

"​Chris and Arleen were absolutely wonderful! I had a boudoir shoot with them and it was incredible! From the moment you get to their studio, it’s all about you! Makeup and hair are done on-site so you don’t have to worry about it! Chris makes you feel so confident throughout the shoot that makes the photoshoot go by so much smoother! The ambiance is just perfect! Playing your favorite artists throughout the session and Chris and Arleen guide you and show you how to properly do the poses!!  I would recommend Chris and Arleen to anyone!! I’ve been sooooo in love with the final pictures!!"

Ms. L

"I was that much more in love with my body and definitely appreciative of what it has done for me and what it has held me through. Seeing my images strengthened my belief that you can be sexy and appreciate your body without the need to be ostentatious necessarily. Chris is amazing at what he does and is very professional in every way possible throughout the session. I tend to be very stand-off-ish and typically stay that way with people who don't inspire trust, but Chris has such a kind demeanor that made me very comfortable following through with the session."

Ms. A

"They are an amazing team to work with!! Their vision is true art! they reflect all the classiness and sass in a session! Their team guides you through the entire process, making sure you are comfortable and feeling your absolute best! I would recommend them for wedding lingerie, gifts for a partner, or just something for you! thank you!"



"Boudoir photography is an opportunity to empower yourself, to embrace your sensuality and to discover your own beauty."

Session 3

Choose from either a classic boudoir session or a glamourous celebrity-style studio look and let us capture your beauty in stunning, tasteful images.

Indulge in a comprehensive boudoir photo experience with both, the classic bedroom-style boudoir, and a glamorous celebrity-style studio look. 

Elevate your boudoir experience with a luxurious photo session in a posh hotel suite. We'll capture your beauty in stunning, tasteful images while you relax in the comfort and elegance of a top-notch hotel setting.




The first step in booking your session is filling out our contact form and scheduling your Complimentary Consultation Zoom Call. During the chat we will answer any questions you have and discuss how a boudoir session can be life changing.  We'll also discuss ideas on possible sets, wardrobe, and your comfort level to ensure that your vision becomes a reality. Once your boudoir photo shoot is booked, we will provide you with preparation and lingerie guides to help you prepare for your session.



We'll send you a Client Welcome Guide and a Boudoir Prep Guide That will not only help you decide on what to wear, but also how to prepare for your session, tips on how to pose, and so much more! We’ve found that many women whom we have had the opportunity to photograph raved about the empowerment and self-confidence they felt after seeing their portraits for the first time after a session.

Every woman that we photograph has a story, and every story is beautiful and unique in its way.



From the moment you walk in the door you will be treated like royalty. We will introduce you to our team, and toast some champagne before you start your double makeover. As for the shoot itself, you don’t need to worry about how to pose or where to look. Chris will direct you every step of the way- from head to toes and facial expressions. Multiple outfit changes and different shooting sets ensure Chris captures your most flattering angles. He will work with you to bring out the best of your unique beauty, making sure that you feel confident and comfortable throughout your experience. And of course there will be some chocolate breaks sprinkle in between sets, too. :)

I want this!

How far in advance do I need to book my shoot?
I recommend that you book your shoot 6-8 weeks before you need your pictures.  Albums may take up to 3-4 weeks to produce. If you need it sooner I will try to accommodate you and do rush service.

I don't look like a model. Do you work with everyday women?
Not a problem! Honestly, even models often don't look like models in real life. They have cellulite, stretch marks, and acne-like every other human being. Having confidence and believing in yourself is what makes fantastic pictures. The glamour & boudoir sessions are all about having fun, getting glammed up, dressed up and letting your hair down, and forgetting about little insecurities. Treating yourself to new lingerie and beauty treatments before the session is a definite excitement and confidence builder!

I don't know how to pose. Will you guide me during a session?
Yes! You don't need to worry about a thing. I am well versed in posing and have even been known to strike a pose or two during our session together, too!.. Just don't laugh too hard. Lol. You can be sure that you always be guided to pose in a way that will flatter your features in the best lighting. During the session, you will be given straightforward directions on how to pose, such as "bring your chin forward," "look up at me with your eyes," "put your left hand on your left thigh," etc. My wife, who will be assisting you during the shoot, will also show you each poses personally, and if you allow—she will help you put a hand in the right position, fix your hair, etc.

I'm a plus-size woman—should I lose some weight before my shoot?
No- you are beautiful as you are right now. We have much experience working with curvy, plus-size women. What we can tell- it does not matter what your size is when it comes to posing, lighting, and photographing you in the most flattering way possible, in a way that stays true to the authentic sexy that you are. With our unique posing system, we can accentuate your curves and best features, take off some extra pounds, and disguise features you might not love, just with lighting and posing. 

What should I wear to my boudoir photo session?
When you book your boudoir experience with us, you'll receive a complimentary wardrobe consultation and emails that will give you ideas on where to shop, what to look for and how to dress for your body type! Preparing a Pinterest board with outfit ideas that you love is also a great idea. From there, we can always guide you towards the best choices. Sessions typically allow time for 2-3 outfit changes. You are more than welcome to bring more outfits with you, and we will help you narrow it down. It is always good to have options. But don't worry- You'll be super prepared by the time your session is here!

Will my photos be on the internet? Can my photos be private?
We, of course, would LOVE to share them so other women can get an idea of what the experience looks and feels like! HOWEVER, we take privacy very seriously at our studio. We will NEVER share your photos without your explicit permission, a signed Privacy Policy agreement, and a signed Model Release. We will honor whatever level of privacy you would like. Many clients are so proud of their images that they give us full discretion to choose images; while some clients prefer to choose the posted images. Some clients prefer that only their faceless pictures be put in our portfolio. Other clients are comfortable with anything being posted, as long as it’s after a certain date (for example, after they gift the images).

Where will my boudoir session take place?
Sessions take place in our beautiful professional home photography studio. The studio is designed exclusively for boudoir and portrait sessions. Other locations (such as hotels, airbnb's, or even your house) are available upon request and additional fees. Our boudoir photography studio has multiple sets with different lighting, backdrops, and props to choose from. Hair and makeup are done right on location. 

I have problem areas. Do you photoshop?
Professional photo retouching is included in your boudoir session. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing techniques and can enhance your images to your liking. It's important to note that we are not here to change you into someone you are not. We are passionate about creating stunning images that celebrate your individuality and one-of-a-kind beauty. 

A male photographer? Um...
Ah yes, the proverbial "elephant in the room." Some women are unsure about a male boudoir photographer, and some actually prefer them. I guarantee a completely comfortable, professional, and FUN atmosphere. To ensure this, I work with an all-female team. Except for me, there will be no other men on-site during your shoot.

Who will be at the shoot?
For all my sessions, I will have an all-female team to assist me. That being said, you can absolutely bring one girlfriend with you (as long as you'll feel comfortable posing in front of her and she is there to cheer you on). Please note that we do not allow partners in the studio while we are shooting. That's a firm policy. 

Do you provide lingerie at the studio?
For sanitary reasons, I do not offer a client closet. I keep a few accessories on hand, like sheer sheets and other items you may wear over your body. You are not alone in selecting your outfits! Depending on what you describe feeling sexiest in, we'll discuss options together and plan your looks accordingly. I also provide all of my clients with a wardrobe guide, including an extensive list of online and in-person lingerie retailers. I curated this list with every body type and cup size in mind. :)​

Do you photograph men or couples boudoir?
Not for these types of shoots. Boudoir can be perceived in several different ways, but to me, it's all about celebrating you and all of the amazing things in this life that you have overcome.

Do I have to use your makeup artist and hairstylist, or can I do my own?​​
Professional hair and makeup are included in all of my sessions.  Makeup for boudoir is much different from the makeup you use for everyday life. It is also a way for you to relax before your shoot and feel pampered before we get into this style of poses. My local makeup artist will work with you to create the perfect look for your photos.
