Let's talk about BLACK | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

It’s easy, it’s slimming, it goes with everything, it makes up 90% of your closet.



BLACK.



You know it’s true. No matter how much you want to branch out from those perfect black pieces of clothing every time you see a piece of clothing that looks like it is even THINKING of not being black you look at it and then retreat into your wardrobe hole like a groundhog afraid of it’s shadow (or really like US afraid to come out of the dressing room).

I’ve been there, I AM there, I am preaching to the choir. Because I know that it’s so easy to fall into the warm snuggly arms of a black wardrobe I knew that I needed to do some research on a few color options that could be almost as comfortable as black. Don’t worry, I’m not going to force you (or myself) to jump feet-first into hot pink and bright cerulean blue. Here are my suggestions for branching out of the black hole (see what I did there?):



1) GREY!!!

You should have seen this coming. Grey is just black that has reached puberty and is trying out a new look, but it doesn’t forget it’s roots. Grey is exploring itself. Grey is fantastic and open to new ideas. You have light grey, dark grey, yellow-ish grey, pink-is grey. Grey has so much versatility but it’s still so close to black that it is practical for everyday viewing and wearing. Grey is the first step in breaking up the monotony of black.

2) Navy blue

Navy Blue is grey’s best friend. They like all of the same things, they look good with all of the same accessories (except sometimes navy blue doesn’t get along with black, it just depends on how light navy is feeling), and they have so many different versions of themselves to go with anything. Navy is a gorgeous color to be photographed in and is a flattering color on everybody. This is because most people do not have a blue-ish undertone in their skin and so navy doesn’t bring out any unwanted skin issues or make someone appear paler than they actually are.

3) Hunter and Emerald green

Think of these greens as fraternal twins. They are born from the same beautiful mixture, but they look and behave pretty differently. In our case, though, they behave very similarly with regards to wardrobe. They flatter, they surprise, they evoke a sense of richness… these greens make you want to touch the clothing that they cover, which is especially great for your boudoir session. Wink wink ;)

And there you have it, a solid few colors to break up the black void. Again, I am preaching to myself, here. Currently I’m wearing a bright yellow shirt and I’m definitely uncomfortable but I’ve gotten SO many compliments on it… so I know that I made the right decision. There is absolutely nothing wrong with black, in fact a LOT of wardrobe pieces look better when they are black, but let’s not make your entire boudoir session an exhibition on the color black. Let’s show YOU off in the best way (which might mean navy or ::gasp:: red).

**Some additional favorite options of ours: deep purples and deep reds

See you soon!!!

Our Lingerie Shopping Guide is now available!! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

The official Own Boudoir Lingerie Shopping Guide is here!

We’ve gone through seven years of helping clients and photographers know where to find the best lingerie, the best body chains, the perfect off-the-shoulder sweaters, and not-too-tight thigh highs, and heels that are the perfect height. I have no idea why it didn’t occur to us before now that we needed to officially write out our guide, but I’d like to think that we’ve used the last 7 years to real perfect our suggestions!

The point of this guide is to direct clients (and photographers!) toward the best stores for outfitting a boudoir session. Searching for lingerie, for heels, for garter belts, and for ANYTHING that you’re wearing in your boudoir session can be quite daunting and overwhelming. Go ahead, Google ‘lace corset’, you’ll find thousands of results. We’ve narrowed down the best places to shop so that you don’t have to scroll through the maze of the internet. Boudoir sessions can already be a little intimidating and cause a case of nerves, we don’t want you to get more nervous or intimidated because of the shopping element.

So, without further ado, our Lingerie Shopping Guide is here! Click on the link below to download the guide!

Happy shopping!,

Sarah and the OWN team

How far out should you book your boudoir session? | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

***availability update for 2019:

3 spots left for April 2019

6 spots left for May and September 2019

4 spots left for June 2019- (June is ideal for early September deadlines)

"When should I book my boudoir session?"

Outside of the rest of the questions that you have about booking a boudoir session, the question of "WHEN?" should absolutely be at the top of your list. Picking a date and time is definitely step one because we're going to need to figure out when you should show up (duh!). It'll also give you a good idea of how long you have to freak-out before stepping foot into the studio ;) 

Unfortunately, all too often we have to turn clients away because we are fully booked. I absolutely love when clients are so eager to have us photograph their session, but I hate having to disappoint when we can't accommodate a deadline. 

The answer to the big question?

You should book your boudoir session at LEAST 2-4 months in advance, especially for holiday deadlines (our busiest time of the year!). Booking your boudoir session in advance gives us ample time to plan out the personal aspect of your session. Poses, wardrobe, music choices, etc. are all planned separately in the months leading up to your session. 

Hoping for a miracle that we'll be able to squeeze you in? Please always ask, but just between you and me these aren't the kind of squeezes you'd typically enjoy. 

Ready to make your first step?

Contact us today! 

We can't wait to meet you!!!

xoxo,

Sarah

You'll never stay dry with this boudoir set ... | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

(The title of this blog post had me trying to figure out how to write an introduction that included both the words ‘boudoir’ and ‘wet’, but I couldn’t figure it out without wanting to make a dirty joke… so this is what you get)


Shower sessions have become one of our most popular requests. I mean, think about it:

You’re (hopefully) used to taking a shower, and so it isn’t as foreign to you as putting on a strap-heavy set of underpants

It requires very little posing instruction (due to the familiarity of knowing how to take a shower)

Hot and steamy skin looks sexyyyyyyy

These images are completely unexpected when one thinks about ‘lingerie photos’ (aka boudoir photographs).

For 2019 we’ve taken our shower set-up up a notch and we’ve made it an entirely separate add-on for your sessions. This way we can specifically create a shower backdrop just for you and based on the inspiration images that we discuss before your shoot. Believe it or not, most of the shower images don’t feature a real shower :) but you’ll have to come in studio to figure out our secrets.

Bridal boudoir sessions are back!! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Bridal boudoir sessions are back!!



Are you newly engaged? Have you been engaged for 10 years? Are you THINKING about getting engaged? Do you want to drop a hint to someone that you would like to be engaged (and obviously the best way to drop that hint would be to have a bridal-themed boudoir session)?

We have the perfect session for you!

Bridal boudoir sessions were first introduced by us in 2016, but we discontinued them for 2018 while we strengthened our shooting levels. Now, though, for 2019 we have brought bridal boudoir sessions back.

While our clients can absolutely book one of our larger sessions and incorporate bridal looks in those, the bridal boudoir session is for those clients (past, present, and future), that want to really focus on the bridal aspect of their boudoir shoot.

Bridal Boudoir Sessions are $550 and include a one-hour session, 2 outfits (one must be a bridal outfit), and 10 digitals images or a little black book.

Ready to book your OWN bridal boudoir session (it also makes a great bachelorette gift!)? Click here to get started!











Check out our Valentine's Day themed sessions (exclusive to past clients only!) | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Yesterday was either a day of love, a day of annoyance, or just another Thursday. Valentine’s day pulls in mixed reviews from everyone, but over here at OWN Boudoir we celebrate it in the best way we know how: boudoir photos!

Once you book with OWN boudoir and have your first session you become a part of an exclusive community. As a past client you not only get the transformative feeling that comes with seeing your OWN beauty captured on camera, but you get exclusive access to past-client events and special themed sessions (woo hoo!!!!).

Valentine’s day happened to be one of those instances where we offered special themed sessions just for past clients. We were able to get creative (I mean, just CHECK out these images) and have a blast creating a Valentine’s boudoir activity that was really just for our clients (even if they DID end up wanting to give the images as a gift).

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!

AND…. here is the fantastic $30 blanket that created that gorgeous boudoir piece:

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!

How did she react to her boudoir photos? | Client Interview | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

This wonderful woman not only has one of the coolest jobs I’ve ever heard of, but she also masquerades as a certified babe underneath all of those scrubs. Getting to catch her in-between flights (flights that she takes because she’s on her way to save someone’s LIFE) was such a privilege. Her boudoir session was full of questions from both Kari (her hair and makeup artist) and I. After hounding her with questions about how her job works and where it takes her we were able to shut up for a few hours and create a beautiful collection of images. Read below to hear about her experience and check out her images!

boudoir photography, atlanta boudoir photographer, boudoir photographer atlanta, atlanta boudoir session


1) How old are you... or if you prefer, who were you listening to at age 14 :)?

Currently 28 

2) What do you do for a living? Or... How do you typically spend your days?

Flight nurse is my real job. But if I’m not treating patients, you can find me curled up with a good book and a comfy blanket. 

3) What prompted you to consider booking a boudoir session?

Everyone deserves to feel beautiful. And these pics did just that for me! 

atlanta boudoir photographer, boudoir photography, own boudoir, boudoir reviews, atlanta boudoir reviews

4) Fears and hesitations are common when it comes to boudoir! What (if any) fears or hesitations did you have with regards to your session?

Like everyone, I have certain aspects of my body that I might not like a well as others. But my session made me fall in love with all my “flaws”. It’s also a little intimidating to “bare it all” to a stranger; however, once I met everyone those worries flew out the window. 

5) Thank you so much for choosing OWN! What was it about us that made you choose us for your boudoir session?

I have stalked the Instagram page for a long while. I love the style of all the photos. And the insta stories made me feel like we were best friends. 

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

Gah, it was sooo much fun. I recommend everyone try it at least once. I was nervous that I would be awkward. I might have actually been awkward, but I was made to feel like I rocked my shoot. My pics prove that I did because I had an awesome instructor.

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

Seeing the end product is always the best part, however to have a day where you get a whole day about you is probably the most memorable part of the experience.

8) How has the response been to your images?

Girl! My images have been a hit! It’s neat to see what stands out the most to different people. I have gotten nothing but A+ responses!! 

9) What is your advice for women interested in such a session (aside from "JUST DO IT!!!")?

Everyone deserves to feel sexy, beautiful. Love the skin you’re in and let the lady with the camera do the rest. ;)

10) What has changed about the way you see your OWN beauty?

I might see “flaws” but looking through a lens of a camera I know now that even flaws are beautiful.

Here's WHEN you should book your boudoir session | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Wondering when the best time to book your boudoir session is? Look no further than this post! Here we have listed all of the deadlines and date information that you need!

Here’s an example of our best selling package: An 8x8 album holding 25 images, a custom USB holding 25 full resolution digital images, and a complimentary mini album!

Here’s an example of our best selling package: An 8x8 album holding 25 images, a custom USB holding 25 full resolution digital images, and a complimentary mini album!

This post is designed to set you up for success, ensuring that you never miss the cut-off date for the holidays and making sure you know JUST how long it takes to get your album back so that you’ve got the perfect birthday gift. We had a LOT of sad emails this past season because we were booked to capacity and could not accommodate last-minute requests for boudoir gifts. While we don’t mind being booked up, we do hate having to send the “NO VACANCY” email to clients that are so excited to work with us.

In order to help solve that problem I wanted to our clients know now (yes, in January) what the deadlines are for the ENTIRE year. This helps you to plan out your boudoir session, and probably gives you a bit of relief since you now know exactly how much time you’ll need between your session and your requested delivery date. I’m hoping that this helps us all have a little less anxiety next year as we are planning your boudoir session!

The bonus of having these dates out now? You can go ahead and get a head start on booking your session, giving you first dibs on dates and times (also remember that weekend availability is only available to book until January 31st, meaning if you’d like a weekend in November then it’s best to snag it now!).

A couple of things:

  • Print Deadline means this is when your session needs to happen in order to have your images printed (be it in an album, prints, or otherwise)

  • Digital Deadline means this is when your session needs to happen in order to receive your images digitally only.

Now for the big picture!

  • General boudoir delivery deadlines (gift for yourself, birthdays, anniversaries, new job, etc)

    • Printed Images- No less than 2 weeks before your deadline

    • Digital Images- No less than 1 week before your deadline

  • Valentine’s Day-

    • Printed Images- January 31, 2019

    • Digital Images- February 3, 2019

  • Hanukkah and Christmas 2019

    • Printed Images- December 3, 2019

    • Digital Images- December 13, 2019



And there you have it! These are all of the major deadlines that you’ll need to keep in mind when booking your boudoir session with OWN. Our travel schedule during the summer and fall will affect availability for sessions, but not shipping of products!

First boudoir shoot of 2019 | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

And just like that, we are officially in the 2019 boudoir season!

Today we had our first boudoir session of 2019. We have had a fantastic couple of weeks off here in Atlanta, but coming back into the studio was like gasping for air!! The creativity was flowing, we high-fived, played 90s hip hop, and drank champagne. I cannot WAIT to meet everyone this year… and to take your naked photos (kidding, kidding). Here’s an image from today’s boudoir shoot. I’ve also now started my quest for a blue fur coat.

It's not always about the veil | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

What do you wear for your bridal boudoir session if you’re not really in to the whole “bridal” thing?


While most of our clients have chosen to have their boudoir session for themselves, we do a have quite a few that choose to give the gift of their boudoir photos for birthdays, anniversaries, deployments, and of course as a wedding gift! But, what if bridal veils and garters aren’t exactly your style?

We get this question quite often from our bridal boudoir clients, and it really allows us to help curate a wardrobe for their shoot that they feel represents their OWN self. As we’re planning your session we will discuss images you are drawn to and the different outfits that you plan to bring with you. If the traditional bridal accessories don’t really excited you then tell us! To be honest, we will probably ask you about it, but just in case we don’t you had better veto any tiaras and white stockings that we try to suggest for you.

If you’re looking for non-traditional wardrobe choices for your bridal session, but still want to keep the ivory and white color scheme we have a few suggestions for where to shop.

One of our favorite places as of recent is Free People. Free people has been stepping up their ‘intimates’ category lately and they have gorgeous selections of robes, crop tops, body suits, tanks, bra sets, sheer gowns, etc. Here is one of my favorite pieces that would look great with a sheer bra (or nothing!) underneath.

Sunday boudoir smiles in one of our favorite lingerie brands! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

It’s a warm, winter Sunday here in Atlanta. This of course calls for smiles!

BlueBella lingerie is one of our favorite brands to photograph. Their lingerie is unique, it is carried in a wide range of sizes, and it always photographs so well. I love recommending this brand to our boudoir clients because they’ve USUALLY never heard of BlueBella before (except that I keep blabbing about them, so that might no longer be true).

Check them out at www.bluebella.us

Check out our latest on location shoot! | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

It’s not every day that we get to shoot on location, and this past weekend we had access to a gorgeous location for a round of boudoir mini-sessions (available to past clients only, btw!)



Le Maison Rouge is a burlesque style event space in Atlanta modeled after Moulin Rouge in Paris. It’s sensually dark, has a collection of beautiful velvet chairs, and the lights all glow a dim red. There are sequins, a stage, a bar, a throne with a lion theme…. you get the picture, right? It is also PERFECT for a very specific style of boudoir session. Had it not been for one of my past clients I never would have considered renting this space. She and I have photographed 6 (!!!) times together, and that is a LOT of boudoir. Each time we get together we are looking for ways to reinvent her look and channel the next level of creativity. This time was no different, and we took it up a FEW levels in boudoir for this round.

The full story (and image set) from our on-location boudoir shoot at Le Maison Rouge is coming soon, but for now please feast your eyes on these insane few images from our day.

A gorgeous couple's boudoir session | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

***This is a revisit to a past post showcasing one of our first “official” couple’s sessions of 2018. We often get asked about whether or not we photograph couple’s boudoir. The answer is “yes” we definitely photograph couples! The catch is that you won’t see many of them on our website because of privacy requests. For that reason I wanted to share this session, which we gained permission to share. Yay for couple’s! Want to have your own couple’s session in 2019? We’re game if you are!

Here is a glimpse into one of our first couple's boudoir sessions for 2018. 

 

One of our biggest announcements for 2018 was that we were OFFICIALLY offering couple's sessions as an option with our boudoir packages. We're a few months into 2018 and we've had SO much interest in bringing two significant others together to document their intimacy. Here is a peek into our very first couple's session of the year. 

 

2018 Boudoir Mini Sessions are here!!! | Atlanta Boudoir

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Once a year we get a brilliant idea of a theme that we know our boudoir clients would absolutely love. More often than not this theme isn’t one that most of our clients want to create an entire session around, but it is definitely a theme that they’d be interested in if we downsized the session!

This year’s theme? Burlesque!!!

Throw on your corsets, your velvet, your frills, and your heels. We’ve booked a Burlesque club here in Atlanta and are hosting a day of mini-sessions!!! We have 5 boudoir mini sessions available on November 25th, 2018.

Here is the link to schedule yours: Book your mini session here!

We’ve had a LOT of fun creating some inspiration boards for these sessions, too. I’m basically just watching and rewatching Moulin Rouge in order to prepare. There will be some serious Nicole Kidman and Dita Von Teese channeling happening in November!

See you there?

Here’s a glimpse at our inspiration :)

Here's the deal on keeping your boudoir images private | Atlanta Boudoir photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Your boudoir images are really the very definition of "sensitive material", and we totally understand. We have a variety of privacy options for our clients so that each boudoir session can be done without any question of how your images will be seen!

I will say I'm a bit surprised that we don't get MORE questions about our privacy policy when it comes to boudoir images! I'm flattered of course that our clients are coming into their sessions ready to share their images with the world. However, for those that have a few more reservations about their images being seen we've got a few options for owning your digitals in confidence. 

When you book a boudoir session with OWN boudoir, whether you're coming in to our Atlanta studio or we're coming to you, we sign a contract to set the expectations for the shoot! Our standard contract outlines what is included in your session, any additional fees, the location for the session, etc. It also lets you know just how your images will or won't be used. For our standard contract (the one that goes out to everyone, unless you ask specifically for a different one) your photos are shareable ONLY if they are anonymous. 

Anonymous photos by OWN's definition are those photos that don't include any full faces, personal tattoos (like those that say your name or anyone's name), company logos, or very specific physical traits (example: birthmarks, prosthetics, etc). 

Most of our clients choose this contract for their shoot because they WANT to show their images off, but want to make sure their high-school students, work friends, or nosy relatives don't have a conniption. 

For clients that would like to make sure that there are no photos shared ever ever ever everrrrrrrrr, we have a version of our contract that is so creatively titled as the "Non-Sharing" contract. When we sign this together, OWN waives the right to share any of your images from your session, no matter how anonymous they are. We can even go a step further and opt-out of back your files up to the cloud or sending you a downloadable gallery. 

What if you don't mind sharing all of your boudoir images with our future clients? We ask for a written statement saying that you give permission for us to use your images. This way all of us are on the same page (and also so that I don't have a panic attack trying to make sure that I'm following your preferences). 

While these three options for your images are what is pretty standard here at OWN boudoir, if you have a specific request or question about your boudoir images then let's talk! Creating your perfect boudoir session can't happen unless we talk! 

Send me all of your demands, 

Sarah

Props? Oh yes, bring your props | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

J.K. Rowling and Yo Yo Ma would be so proud. 

When this lovely client came to our Atlanta studio last year with her "can I bring props to my boudoir session" question we went all 'Broad City' and were like "YAAASSS QUEEN". Of course, we tend to say "YAS" before asking for more information, but we haven't been burned yet.

(That being said, please don't surprise me by bringing some weird prop like a taxidermy fox-thing, IDK what to do with that). 

During our questionnaire and wardrobe planning process, which you can read more about in a few posts back, she elaborated that she'd love to bring in her cello as well as the candles she'll use at her October wedding. Insert a sigh of relief from us that she wasn't bringing a taxidermy fox. 

I'll admit, working my lighting with the candles proved to be a bit of an equation at first. I was 0% satisfied with a lot of the images, but with a little experimentation and a LOT of micro adjustments I finally got it right. Cue Harry Ma, which is my combo of Harry Potter and Yo Yo Ma. Deal with it. 

To date, these candles and the cello are some of my favorite unique props that have been brought in to the boudoir studio! I’m currently on my way to San Francisco for a few boudoir sessions (Yippeee!!!!!) and I can’t wait to see the props that these ladies come up with :)
