I loved the photos so much, I cried when I first saw them."
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!
The first step in booking your session is filling out our contact form and scheduling your complimentary consultation call. On the call 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 guide you on what to wear, how to prepare, how to pose, and 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. :)
Your reveal and ordering appointment will be scheduled within two weeks after your photoshoot in our boutique studio where you can preview your images and select your products privately.
We will guide you through the product selection process to have the right products suited to your needs. Prints and products are purchased separately.
