"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

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.


Ready to book your boudoir session? We’re honoring our 2018 pricing for all 2019 bookings until December 31, 2018! Book now to snag this year’s options!

This body chain is now a part of our studio closet! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

What do you do with those accessories or lingerie that you’re pretty certain you’d never wear outside of your boudoir shoot?

We get this question every few weeks, and my answer is always the same: Give them to me!! I will take great care of them, and those unique pieces that helped create your perfect boudoir look (but don’t really have a place in your home closet) will get put to great use!

Exhibit A: This body chain was recently donated to the boudoir closet after a client’s session! It’s obviously great as a body chain, but I’ve used it as handcuffs/ties, as well as a collar (and a few other things ;)).

Could it be perfect for your boudoir session, too? It’s here waiting for you! I can also easily pop it into my luggage if you’re not having your session here in Atlanta… it doesn’t exactly take up a lot of room ;)

Representation | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Atlanta United has made it into the MLS Playoffs, which has nothing to do with boudoir…or does it?

This past weekend, Atlanta’s own MLS team won their match and will be advancing in the playoffs. The MLS team has a HUGE following here in Atlanta, which is so rare for an Atlanta team. We have quite the reputation of being terrible fans :)

To celebrate their advancement I of course wanted to pull some representation from the boudoir archives! This image from a recent boudoir session is doing everything it can to distract you from keeping your eye on the ball. Maybe we should put it on the sidelines to distract our opponents?

Good luck to the 5 stripes!!!

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 :)

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 :)

A great alternative to lingerie... | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Is a closet full of traditional lingerie really necessary for your boudoir session? 

Once you start planning your boudoir session you of course start gathering a selection of images and outfits that serve as inspiration for your session. If you're looking for garter belts (and gator belts, and monte carlos, and el dorados... sorry, I went off into an Outkast tangent, It's my Atlanta raising coming out), lace push-up bras, frilly thongs, etc then you won't have a hard time at all finding wardrobe inspiration for your boudoir session. 

Well, what if you're not exactly a lace push-up bra kind of person? Where do you find inspiration for your boudoir session when you don't love any of the 'typical' wardrobe choices that are available? 

So many of our clients aren't into 'typical' lingerie but will still bring it in because they don't know what else to bring. I'm all for bringing items that are out of your comfort zone (hello pearl thong!!), but there's no need to bring items in because you feel like you HAVE to. 

 

Here is a great example of shapewear being used during a boudoir session! 

Here is a great example of shapewear being used during a boudoir session! 

 

Here are some ideas for alternatives to your typical lingerie options, and we've worked with all of these during boudoir sessions so we support these choices 100%!

1) Shapewear- This can seem like an odd idea, shapewear isn't exactly known for being photogenic, in fact the whole point is for it to make something ELSE look photogenic. However, lately there has been a trend in shapewear where the designers are adding a bit of personality to an otherwise boring (but highly effective) undergarment. The bonus? Shapewear SHAPES you and so it is great for nipping and tucking in certain bits that you may want concealed. 

Check out this amazing option from SPANX

2)  Sleepshirts- While traditionally worn with pants (and not the first item you consider when you're planning your boudoir session), we're going to forgo the pants for this style and just use the shirt! Sleepshirts tend to be a little baggier and feature buttons all of the way down (or at least halfway). The amazing thing about sleep shirts is that we can 'sex it up' by unbuttoning the shirts, pulling the hem up the thigh, taking the collar off of the shoulder (with fully button-down versions), etc. Fabric is super important with sleep shirts, so go for thinner fabrics that form to the body and avoid super thick plaid that doesn't move. I'd also avoid crazy patterns like tiny sleeping rubber duckies :) 

Check out this beautiful option (and I love the fabric!)

3) Classic Blazer and Trouser/Skirt look- Cue the 'sexy Lawyer', or literally any profession :) I love love love this look and we get it a LOT in studio. Since blazers and trousers/high waisted skirt are typically already fitted and tailored to your body shape they automatically photograph really well. Simply remove the shirt from underneath your blazer and you've made your work outfit boudoir-ready. If you don't want to go topless underneath the blazer (or don't want to wear a blazer at all!) then try adding a simple bra or a bodysuit. This look is powerful and sexy and a great alternative to the traditional boudoir wardrobe. 

Check out this two-piece set from ASOS (just imagine it without a shirt!)

There you have a few great alternatives for the traditional boudoir wardrobe of lingerie and pearls. A few other alternatives? Sweatpants, big cardigans, and of course NUDE!

My favorite lingerie stores in Atlanta! | Atlanta boudoir photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Now that you've booked your boudoir session, where on earth do you find your boudoir wardrobe?! Can we even call it a wardrobe? :) 

Shopping for lingerie can be insanely intimidating, plus where on earth does one shop if they're looking for unique pieces that won't make you look back and say "oh yeah! 2018! The year of the strappy bralettes". 

Here in Atlanta (though they also have online stores) I wanted to remind you that there are two amazing brick-and-mortar stores.

What this means is that you can try lingerie ON and get hands-on advice for what looks best on you. Bonus: trying lingerie on around someone you don't know will really help prepare you for your boudoir session.

Kidding, but not really.

Anna Bella Fine Lingerie in Alpharetta is a beautiful boutique with an amazing owner, Pam, to assist you in your lingerie needs. For our boudoir clients they never steer wrong, and there are options for every style, size, and budget. 

Trashy Diva Intimates is located in the Poncey-Highlands area of Atlanta and is fresh in town from New Orleans! Their boutique is stunning and includes a dress-shop as well! Style, size, and budget are no issue here... plus they have a wide variety of burlesque accessories for all of you looking to branch out in your talents. 

As always, tell them we sent you, say yes to something out of your comfort zone, and enjoy the experience. 

In love and lingerie,

Sarah

Check out the new piece debuting in our boudoir closet | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

When you're preparing for your boudoir session it can be quite overwhelming to try and find the perfect pieces that will make the perfect photograph. Insert the studio boudoir closet. 

Over time we've curated quite the collection of items for clients to choose from that we KNOW will photograph perfectly. Having this closet of wardrobe unmentionables saves you a little bit of time and stress during boudoir planning, and don't we alllllll want to be saved from those things? We've got shoes, corsets, handcuffs, button-down shirts, tank tops, etc. Occasionally we'll switch things over, especially as styles change. No one needs to bring in that hot-pink rhinestone bra from Victoria's Secret circa 2002. 

A brand new veil just arrived in our Atlanta studio via Amazon (holla at me, Amazon, if you want to sponsor us)! For a solid $24 we've got the most beautiful veil, accessible to any boudoir client that wants to use it. This is perfect for brides that don't want to (or can't) break out their own veil for their boudoir session. Plus it's just fun to play dress-up with!

Boudoir Interview!!!! | Atlanta boudoir

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Reading the words of past clients and hearing them talk about their OWN experience helps me (Sarah) and the OWN team know where we went right. When past clients have come in for a 2nd (or third or fourth or fifth) go around, then we REALLY pay attention... and you should to. 

We first met this lovely woman a couple of years ago (as she tells you in this interview). She was going through some things and I love that we were able to reconnect again for her second shoot with us. She brought in some custom made cowboy boots, so just wait until you see those. She also is one of the most caring and focused people I've ever met and that makes me feel so honored that she chose us again. I basically just want to sing her praises for the next 72 paragraphs, but I'll spare you and let you figure it out yourself. 

Read on, 

Sarah

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

 27 years old 

 

2) What do you do for a living?

NICU Registered Nurse

3) What/who made you decide to book a boudoir session?

My first session was 2 years ago. I was single at the time. Struggling with self esteem and self image my whole life because of constant bullying in school. I suffer from a birth injury that resulted in a alter walking gait. Of course kids always point these things out which in return made me very self conscious and shy. As an adult I have worked hard on myself to break through those emotions, however at 25 I still felt like I had so much farther to go. That’s when I heard about boudoir and thought this might be just what I need to over come my childhood insecurity and feel like  the confident, beautiful woman I had become. 

 

4) Did you have any obstacles or fears about boudoir?

My fears were of course taking the photos and only seeing everything I hate about my body. I gained over 30lbs in college, and struggled to loose the weight while working 12 hour night shifts at the hospital. When I decided to do my first boudoir shoot I also decided to live a healthier life style and was able to loose 30lbs and feel better in the long run.

5) Why did you choose OWN? 

Honestly, I did a shoot with a local photographer in Rome GA. The finish product was not what I had imagined . So, I went to google and read reviews, looked at portfolios and that’s where I found OWN. 

 

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

It was nothing like I expected! My first session with another photographer I had to bring my own lingerie and come up with my own location and posses. That photographer didn’t really encourage me or couch me. It was a very awkward experience, so I was very nervous that that was just how these sessions would be. However, from the first email with Sarah the experience was completely different. She was very responsive, encouraging and knowledgeable. She also took care of everything from make up, hair, backdrop, and poses. She made me feel like a very important super model. A strange yet empowering experience. That’s when I realized it’s not about the pictures, it’s about the entire experience that gives you that confidence you are looking for. 

 

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

My favorite part was shooting and of course seeing the images. The sessions were both just so much fun, but of course nothing beats the excitement of seeing the finished product where it super hard to only pick a few imagines to take home. 

bridal boudoir atlanta, atlanta boudoir photographer, boudoir photography, wedding boudoir, sexy photos, wedding veil

 

8) How has the response been to your images?

At the time of my first image they were just for me. Not long after the first session I found a great guy who I am not engaged to two years later. He loves those first pictures I did. He uses one as my contact photo on his phone. He has not seen my bridal picture yet, however after hearing his responses to the first photos. I was able to really focus on the things he loves about me physically in the bridal session. I can’t wait for him to see those at our wedding. 

 

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

Just do it! Like Nike, haha. You will not regret it. Especially, if you struggle with self image or scares those seen and unseen you need this. It will allow you to see the real you not just the altered version of yourself that can be painful to look at . When you have this experience and have those photos it makes those ruts we all get into thinking about how we wish we looked like a celebrity that much easier to get through and realize you are one of a kind and beautiful just the way you are. 

 

10) Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty as a result of this session?

I have always struggled with a mentality that I assume everyone only sees my disability. I always get theses feelings that people are not

Going to like me or think I’m beautiful  or sexy because of my birth injury. My 2 sessions have really helped me over come those feeling of feeling like I am never good enough and that is with more then any therapy I could have experienced.

Of course we love hearing the feedback that our clients get from their significant others when they show off their boudoir photos. When that feedback includes some serious comments from your friends, we love that even more! 

A couple of months ago this stunner came in for her boudoir session in our Atlanta studio. She was referred to us by another client, which is one of the biggest compliments that we can ever get! We cracked up the entire time, but you'd never know it by looking at these images! If you're thinking of having a boudoir session for your wedding gift take  look at these images, and this interview! You can also read this interview if you're not thinking of doing a boudoir session, you're an adult so you can do what you want :)

3) What/who made you decide to book a boudoir session?

I saw my friend Kate's photos with you and was blown away. I didn't realize it was a "thing" brides even started doing for their husbands, but I figured, why not?! I'd already been working hard on my body for the wedding, I wanted to capture it in photos not only for Bryan but for ME to have forever!!!

 

 

4) Did you have any obstacles or fears about boudoir?

I don't really see myself as sexy, so I was nervous if that would show through in the images, and if I would feel awkward trying to pose. You made those go away!

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

Makeup was fun, getting to know you and sipping champagne , seeing the images while you were shooting was really cool and empowering. Of course seeing the final result was awesome too!!

 

 

8) How has the response been to your images?

Obsessed. "I want to have sex with you right now" - from a girlfriend even LOL.

 

 

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

DO IT. It doesn't matter if it's for a [significant other] or not, it's awesome to do for yourself!!

When vanity makes you do this... | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

"You're so vain", but who cares (especially when it comes to boudoir)

Sometimes vanity pushes us in the most positive of directions and that direction can lead us down an instagram wormhole that puts out out at my studio's doorstep. I don't really know how many times that actually happens to people, but I can count a few. This gorgeous human walked into my boudoir studio as a result of her husband's encouragement and on her OWN damn volition. We had such a fantastic time cracking up while trying to make the "sexy face". Spoiler: we succeeded in the sexy face but the bloopers are hilarious. 

I am so proud of her for being so open with us during her shoot, with you that are reading this, and with the future readers. She has an amazing joy and air about her... plus she is pretty F***ing hot.

Your boudoir session doesn't start when you walk through our studio doors, your boudoir session starts the moment you get in touch with us. We get all of the scheduling out of the way (that's a huge part of it... I mean, we have to set a date for this party!) and then we start the fun stuff. Fun stuff means fun mail, fun e-mails, fun shopping, fun Pinterest-ing, fun packing, and whatever else brings you joy in preparation for this super-fun time. I of course had to throw "fun" back in there one more time. 

Clients ask us all of the time where to go to prepare for specific parts of their boudoir sessions. We're here to help, and while we've got a specific list that we send out to our clients, I thought I'd make it known to everyone...regardless of whether or not your prepping to have some super-hot (and fun, did I say that?) photos made of you.

However, before I do that... we want to here from YOU! I want to know what your favorite places to shop for lingerie are. Tell me where you get your nails done! Where do you get spray tanned? Who cares for your skin? Do you have a favorite workout? What's your favorite luggage bag that can house a billion bras?

I'm compiling a list of "fan favorites" and can't wait to share! 

In love and tasteful nudes,

Here's a unique wardrobe idea! | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Looking for a unique wardrobe idea for your boudoir session that doesn't necessarily involve whips and chains or a bendy-ness of a Yogi to get into? Look no further than leg warmers! 

 

I absolutely LOVED the leg-warmer look that a client brought in last week! It's also been especially cold here in Atlanta lately, so the leg-warmers were almost a necessity. Someone move me to Miami, stat.

Leg warmers are easy to get in to (a huge plus) and really change the direction of an outfit! Here we paired leg warmers with a black lace bralette set! By itself this set could be paired with heels or thigh-highs to create a more "late night" sexy vibe. With the leg warmers added we were able to create a more "saturday morning sexy" vibe. Let's all clap for variety!!! 

Here are a few of my favorite images from this boudoir set. Take note that this look can also be achieved by using thigh-high socks!
