Art of You Boudoir
(Formerly ATX Portraits)
Hello and Welcome! We're here for women who don't wake up with perfect hair. Women who like both sneakers and heels. The women who feel beautiful in a t-shirt. For the mothers, fiances, and wives. For those who are divorced or single. Those who want to celebrate or to heal. We want you to know just how truly amazing, unique, and beautiful you are. We know that you work so hard and always put others before you. Today, it's all about you. Time to applaud all the things that you have overcome in this crazy life. It's time to celebrate you. You are so deserving of pampering and your very own boudoir session. So smile love, and enjoy this moment, and let's show the world the art of you!

Top 5 Boudoir Photography FAQ's
I’m nervous about how I look, will you help me with posing?
I’ve got you covered! I don’t want you to worry about a thing– I will be there to guide and cheer you on throughout your entire session. Trust me, you will do absolutely AMAZING!!!!
Are Hair and Makeup Included?
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.
Who will be present at the shoot?
For all my sessions, I will have an all-female team there 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.
Will my photos be on the internet? Can they be private?
Do I have to be nude?
Absolutely not! Your boudoir session is all about you and making sure we capture images you’ll absolutely LOVE and are comfortable with!
Before & After
100% Everyday Women Who Decided to Treat Themselves
Nationally Published Photographer
Professional, Certified, Licensed, Insured :)
Hi, my name is Chris Reynolds, but all my friends call me 'bear". I am a professional boudoir and portrait photographer based in Austin, TX.
Though I started my business in 2018, I've always had a love for photography. As most people do, I allowed myself at an early age to be deterred from following my dreams. The dream of being a professional photographer. Until one fateful day in 2014 when I bought my first camera. I have not put down my camera since.
I chose to photograph women because I truly believe that there are three sources of beauty in this world—art, nature, and women.
As someone who has Celiac, I know what it's like to struggle to appreciate my body and honor it. That's why my mission is to help you see your strengths and beauty. To prove to you, that even though you may not think it, you truly are beautiful. I personally am a believer that God created all of us and that he doesn't make mistakes. No matter what is your age, weight, or body shape. You deserve to have gorgeous photographs of yourself.
I promise you that I will take the most beautiful images you have ever owned and that this photoshoot with me will change the way you see yourself forever.
