Hi my name is Julia Vie. I am based in Austin and specialize in boudoir photography. I have many years of experience capturing the beauty of women in sophisticated and timeless ways. I try to steer clear of gimmickry and instead focus on capturing the inner beauty of my subjects and focus on bringing that beauty forth in my work.

Testimonials of My Muses

Boudoir photography helps a woman rediscover her sensual beauty. It is a pampering experience where you get to be truly glamorous for a day.  The session is private, and it’s a chance to be as sweet or sexy as you want to be. You will leave feeling incredibly sexy and confident -- and the best part is that you’ll have the portraits to brag about it! Thank you, Julia, for an amazing experience! - Kim

"I had the V-day session at the St. Cecilia hotel with Julia. She and her staff were awesome! My first time to do a Boudoir session, so I was a little nervous about how the photos would turn out. She did some great shots (I probably could have been a better subject matter; learn to pose WITHOUT smiling), and I was very comfortable. In fact, I would for sure do it again. It was a total surprise for the hubby, and he thought it was the best present EVER! I highly recommend Julia!" Mindy C.

"Julia is a great gal to work with.  My shoot with her was lots of fun & the studio/set is pin-up perfection.  I’ll definitely work with her again and recommend her to any ladies who are in need of a fun photographer in Austin." Lacy S.

"What can I say? Boudoir photography is boudoir photography. What makes Vivian’s Muse awesome is Julia, the photographer. She makes a potentially UNCOMFORTABLE experience an awesome, natural, exciting one. I am generally a reserved person, but this has always been something I thought would be fun. For multiple reasons, I took the “jump” this summer and couldn’t be happier. You don’t have to worry about looking great. Julia keeps an eye out for your best angles/shots while making you feel beautiful and talking you through/calming you down during the whole thing. If you’ve ever considered a boudoir photo shoot, I’d definitely recommend calling Julia." Tiffany

"Julia V. is such a talented photographer! I am very shy, even when it come to my husband. I went in thinking I was going to be a nervous wreck. But she is so friendly, and she made me laugh. Every good pose she would say how sexy I looked or refer to how much my husband was going to love his anniversary gift this year. She made me feel amazing. Every time I look at my pictures, I feel so good about myself. I would recommend her to everyone. She's so good, I am currently taking classes at AAU to get into boudoir photography and become as skilled as she is. If I ever get there, I hope to be able to make someone feel as awesome as she made me feel. Love ya, Julia!! Keep up the amazing work!" Hannah Garret

"Her tag line reads, “Because you had it all along.” I originally went in for a surprise present for my husband’s birthday. I left surprising myself. But she wasn’t surprised, because she knows you have it and instantly brings out the best in you – something you thought you might never have had. It’s hard to put into words how incredibly fabulous she is! So, I guess you’ll just have to find out for yourself." Octavia

"Julia IS AWESOME!!!! She made me feel so sexy with my photo shoot. I was very nervous at first, but she made me feel like I was a GODDESS! My photos came out beautifully! When you look at all the magazines and think about the beautiful women you see and wish you could look like that, Julia can make it happen! She is an amazing soul. She gave me confidence that I had lost. Not only did she make me look beautiful but she made me realize my beauty inside as well, and that is PRICELESS! This should be on every woman’s bucket list! xoxox Julia." Faith Garganta

“Every woman should do a photo shoot with Julia. Do it for yourself, if no one else. The experience will make you feel sexy, beautiful and empowered; and you’ll have some amazing memories to look back upon. I enjoyed every minute of my photo shoot with Julia, and the pictures turned out better than I could’ve imagined. She is so very talented. Do it, you won’t regret it!” Patti K.

"All in all for the price-point, the experience, and the effect it had on my Mister (and me!) – I would recommend Vivian’s Muse to every woman. Julia is a fabulous photographer who knows how to capture a woman’s beauty and preserve her classiness while turning up the heat a notch. Julia is a true artist in every sense of the word. She has her studio set up in multiple areas to create a wide variety of shots, from fun and sassy to serious and sexy. While you are doing your shoot she is very much into what makes you look the best, not just a standard pose. Once the pictures are captured, the eye that Julia has for editing is impeccable! Now I not only have a renewed love of my body but an amazing book of pictures to remind me just how beautiful I am." Julia White
