After my mother passed away, without my anchor  I began to struggle. I felt insecure and never mourned her death with any sense of completeness. My heart was always aching to hear her laugh or see her smile while she spoke with her trademark honesty.

Trying to cope, I fell into some bad patterns and began seeing myself as not good enough. I tried perfecting everything in my life until it almost killed me. It was during this time that I started on a destructive path of not eating. Suddenly 15 pounds lighter, I found myself tired, weak and mentally on total autopilot. It was all because I wanted my mom to be proud of me… but not at the cost of my life!

Vivian’s Muse started as a way of honoring my mom’s memory, but it’s turned into something much more magical than I ever imagined. I feel so blessed to be able to show you how beautiful you are, no matter how you might feel about yourself. I still feel lonely without her in my life, but I hope Vivian’s Muse will evolve  into a community of like-minded woman who can help each other through loss and heartbreak, and inspire joy in one another.

Welcome to Austin’s Only Premier Studio, Parlor & Boutique. Here you will capture another side or perhaps another angle of your life. Your potential. Your Dream. We are all not perfect in our own minds, yet we are ALL perfect, whole and complete. We are One. I hope you call me even if it is to say you enjoy my photographs…Please come by to say hi to my baby puppies, Coco ( like Coco Chanel) and Fawn. They are fabulous. They live in the moment. They hang out & are both unique; each with her personality, rackets and dramas. Coco is a true Diva. But I love her for it. So bring it all here and reveal your true side in front of the camera.

I am not perfect!!
Please respect the process & my work, I am not perfect!!

all the best,

Want to get in touch? I’d love to give you a tour of the studio or just chat for a while. Getting to know my clients and sharing parts of myself and my work is what I do – so don’t be shy! I can’t wait to hear from you!

XO Julia

Maximize My Experience…

This retreat is about you & your personal style.
Style is an attitude. It’s not about what, it’s about how.
Personal style is about accepting who you are.
 After all, style is something each of us already has— all we need to do is refine it!
Some of the things that other muses have discovered are:
A new sense of style.
A new sense of actual physical beauty as well as inner beauty.
No need for competition
A new sense of power
Feel more grounded in sexuality
More adventurous in life & in the bedroom.
A new sense of being a woman.
If you are a mother, don’t forget your man fell in love with a woman, not a mom. You are more to him than “just a mom!”

Let’s get to know each other…

*Some muses incorporate their hobbies and interests into the shoot.
  What are the hobbies and activities you enjoy? 
*Whether your style is Pin-up, Playboy, Victoria's Secret, 1920's Vamp, or something racier, I can help express it.
