Check out these boudoir hacks (and get some ideas for your next session)! | Atlanta boudoir photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Have you ever seen an outfit or an image that inspires you so much that you MUST recreate it? You scour the internet to find an exact skirt (or coat, or hat, or pair of shoes, or whatever) only to find it and realize it has been sold out for 4 years. It’s so frustrating, and I have definitely been there.


A couple of weeks ago we had a client bring in an amazing blue faux-fur coat. Of course she had purchased it years ago and it is nowhere to be found on the whole entire internet (yes, I looked). Well everyone LOVED that coat (check out our Instagram to see it!), especially one client that was due to have her boudoir session the following week. This client then came up with one of the most brilliant hacks we’ve seen in order to recreate the look of the blue coat.

Check out her version of the blue coat, and then check out where she found it!

Looking to buy one of these for your own boudoir session? I’m craving to shoot the dusty pink version! Vintage vibes for sure. Find the blanket here.

There you have it, one of my favorite boudoir hacks of recent. I love sharing how to creatively achieve certain looks, and so I’ll make sure to update any further boudoir hacks!

Here's a new way to get information about your boudoir session! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

We may be a few months late (or....maybe we are right on time), but I've finally figured out a great way to make it easier for you to access specific information about boudoir sessions with OWN! 

Check out our Instagram, but more specifically check out our Instagram Highlights. 

 

Instagram highlights are a version of Instagram Stories, but think of them as more specific versions of our stories. If Instagram Stories are the overall novel of our day, the Highlights are the chapters within the novel...only those chapters can stay around for as long as I decide, regardless if the entire rest of the novel is missing. 

(Honestly this is the best way I can describe it, so I hope it helps! )

Our Instagram Highlights are centered around a few subjects that are specifically related to OWN boudoir (or boudoir photography in general). These boudoir stories are a perfect way for you to find out very specific details on a variety of subjects when you're planning your boudoir session. If you don't feel like reading through 6 years of blogs for information, then these stories are for you. 

(Although, 6 years of info is a LOT of info, so if you've got some time on your hands or just feel like being extra prepared then you should start reading now. )

Here's what you can find on our Instagram Highlights:

So... come see me on my stories. ;) I promise to be a really entertaining booby-booty photographer.

Check out our new studio piece... | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

I've wanted a new piece of furniture for our boudoir studio for a while. However, I knew that any new piece I added would need to have a function to it. Storage is all that I could come up with, until I saw a neighborhood posting. 

 

While growing up my parents made my brothers and I (there are three of us all together) take piano lessons. I say "made" because we would kick and scream in order to avoid practicing, and my parents would watch us (or close the door) until we stopped and reluctantly touched the keys again. 

Fast forward to many years later (mannnyyyyyyyy years), I have a new appreciation for piano and I actually miss playing. I miss playing so much that I knew immediately that my new piece of "furniture" would actually need to be a piano. A piano neeeeeeeded to be in my life. I could not only revisit a semi-beloved creative outlet, I could have a killer prop for the boudoir studio. Plus, I'm of course going to teach my clients piano lessons during their boudoir sessions. Duh. 

Well, my dreams came true and my habit of perusing internet yard-sale sites paid off. 

I found a piano. 

The story of how I actually GOT this piano and was able to move it in to my studio (I think it weighs 700lbs) is something that you'll have to ask me at your boudoir session. 

For now, it's working as a great addition to our studio and my musical brain. 

La la la la la, 

Sarah

Confidence doesn't always come with a bodysuit ... |Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

 

First of all, if your asking about this bodysuit the let me just say: it is the best bodysuit ever. It photographs incredibly different of each body, had the perfect elasticity, and OH YES that see-through fabric. It’s from Maison Close and it’s the bomb for boudoir (and the shower and just walking around in general sensuality).

Now on to the main event.


This gorgeous client came in to see us with intentions of giving the gift of a boudoir session to her long-distance boyfriend (edited to add he is no longer long distance!). She ended up giving us the gift of a perfect eyeshadow (it’s a metallic glitter shadow from Stila) and an open mind for her session. Read her words, see her life, the variety of wardrobes, and how client interview (like this very one!) helped her make her decision for OWN! 

She shared with her partner, she shared with her friends, and now she is sharing with you! Take this privilege and run with it, just like she did. Never hide how beautiful you are!

Text me for the link to that bodysuit, 

Sarah

6) How was the actual session different from what you expected (if at all)?

Based on all of the client interviews I read before my shoot, it was exactly what I expected. The day was extremely fun and laid back- there was great music going, Sarah had snacks out, and taking the pictures was so fun. I was sad when it was over and am already looking forward to another shoot in the future!

7) What was your favorite part of the entire experience? (priming, the shoot, seeing images, giving the images..etc)

This is a hard one! The entire experience was absolutely amazing. I think my favorite parts were getting ready and seeing the images. It was a blast getting ready with Sarah and Hope- so relaxing and the conversation was great. And then of course I was completely blown away during the viewing!

Everyone has loved the images so much! I have at least 10 girlfriends who are interested in booking their own boudoir sessions now!

9) What is your advice for women interested in such a session?

BOOK IT! You will not regret it! The images are sure to be beautiful and the day is one for the books!
