Tyler and Stephanie Arnet found out that she had eye cancer in November 2017. The husband and wife, who have three kids, knew that they could get through this difficult time together.
When Tyler noticed how depressed his wife was after her cancer diagnosis, he decided he wanted to do something extra special to lift her spirits and put a smile on her face.
Tyler decided on a photo shoot for his wife — but not just any shoot. He posed in a “dudeoir” shoot, which is a manly take on romantic and intimate boudoir photos.
With the help of Jill Steenson of Lillian Lane Photography, Tyler made the photo shoot come to life.
Tyler stripped almost completely naked and spread himself on a bed, the floor, and a kitchen counter, and he even took a flower petal bath all in the name of love.

Tyler Arnet is a dad of three and lives in Vancouver, Washington, with his wife, Stephanie.
Stephanie was diagnosed with eye cancer in November 2017.
Stephanie expressed to her husband how scared she was and he knew he had to do something to cheer up his wife.
“It’s stressful. It’s life-changing,” Tyler told People. “[Stephanie] was really depressed. She said, ‘What if something happens and I don’t make it and my kids are alone without their mother?’”
That’s when he decided to do a sexy “dudeoir” photo shoot.
Tyler teamed up with a local photographer named Jill of Lillian Lane Photography and got into total model mode for the shoot.
“I honestly found Jill’s ad looking for a model and I messaged her,” Tyler explained to LittleThings.
Tyler stripped down to his black underwear and posed for the camera. He hoped that the photos would lift Stephanie’s spirits — and it worked!
“Stephanie was completely shocked and couldn’t stop smiling and laughing,” Tyler told LittleThings.
It wasn’t just Tyler and Stephanie who got a kick out of the photos. They’ve been shared online and are earning the dad a lot of attention.
“I had no idea this was going to blow up the way it did,” he told LittleThings. “Especially because I had no intentions of this being put online.”
All the photos feature Tyler in some sort of sexy pose in various states of undress.
Tyler — a former US Army medic who was deployed to Iraq for 12 month — was not shy to strip down and get into the bathtub surrounded by flowers.
Tyler didn’t mind getting a little dirty and played with flour in the kitchen.
“Laughter is the best medicine,” Tyler told People. “This could’ve been the thing that gave her that boost of motivation to kick cancer’s a**.”
Tyler tried to stay serious in each photo to make them funnier, but he couldn’t help but crack a smile in a few of the shots.
While the photos obviously aren’t the cure for her cancer, they are making Stephanie smile and feel loved by her amazing hubby!
Tyler and Stephanie both agree that this is their favorite photo from the whole “dudeoir” shoot.
“My wife and I both love the picture with the Christopher Walken pillow,” Tyler told LittleThings. “He is our favorite actor.”
