Gift certificates are perfect for the person that has been hinting at booking their boudoir photo shoot, for the bride that needs to show off her lingerie, for the mom that needs to reconnect with her individual beauty, or for any woman that would love to see her OWN beauty on paper.

Don't forget to check THIS site for your boudoir wardrobe | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

It’s easy to get into old habits and routines when you’re shopping for clothing. Add lingerie into the mix and you’re almost guaranteed to stick to what makes you most comfortable.


One store that often gets overlooked is ETSY! Etsy is a HUGE haven for creative pieces for your boudoir shoot. Lingerie and costume stores are pretty limited, especially here in Atlanta. Etsy provides a world of options for any style of lingerie or wardrobe that you could think of for your boudoir shoot.

Feather wings? Check. Cage skirt? (see below). Sparkly crown? Sure. Huge tulle princess skirt? Of course. Body jewelry? LOADS OF IT.

So, check out Etsy for your boudoir session when traditional stores aren’t really feeding your fire. You won’t be disappointed.

Weekend availability is BACK (but extremely limited!) | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

That’s right, we’ve added a few more weekend dates for boudoir sessions to our calendar!!


We get it, schedules can be hard! They are unpredictable and not everyone gets the option of working from home during the week. Weekends are where you can finally do what YOU want to do (which could be binging Netflix or staring at a blank wall while you eat Cheetos… no judgment). If you’ve been really wanting to book a boudoir session, but your weekly schedule just wouldn’t allow it then the weekend is perfect for you!!

There are a limited number of weekend dates left for the year. These are perfect for our bridal boudoir and Base session options. We’ll spend a couple of hours together and then you can join your friends for brunch. If you’re a bride then the weekend sessions are a GREAT option to use your hair/makeup trial for your wedding as your hair/makeup for your boudoir session! Plus, it’s obviously a great gift.

Interested in seeing our availability, or ready to go ahead and snag one of our dates? Click here to see our availability calendar!

The power of posing | Atlanta boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

**I’m reviving this post because it is SPRING BREAK season and the rules of boudoir posing definitely work for swimsuit posing. Summer is coming up next, so I hope this helps everyone take the best vacation photos!

We all love the promise of spring, summer, and warmer weather. What’s not to love? The stores put out the new fashions, there are even cuter sandals than last year, patios are sensible again, and the beach/pool are regular weekend activities. One could almost go into a happiness coma thinking about it all - until it suddenly hits you that bathing suits will be involved. The mere thought of putting on a suit after a winter of soup, blankets, and hottie-toddys can terrify me back to Siberia.

Fear not, readers! You may not be feeling your best, but I will teach you how to pose your best! It never fails that we’ll have that one friend wanting to Instagram every step we take, and so it’s important to know how to look our best.

In honor of the start of summer (and swimsuit season!) here are a few important posing tips for your upcoming, vacation, lake day, etc. Hint: these tips also apply to your boudoir photos :) 

Some Don'ts

1) Don’t do the straight-on shot. This pose doesn’t allow the camera to register any of your shape and angles because your entire body is on the same camera-plane. The result is a very flat shot that gives the illusion of a wider and shorter shape.

2) Don’t do the ‘legs apart’ shot. For the same reasons as above, this pose causes the camera to see you a bit wider and shorter. When feet are a part the eye sees a ‘box’ instead of anything curvy. While the hand-on-the-hip is usually a great idea, in the straight-on and legs-apart shot it can accentuate the ‘box’ figure. I also think this makes me look pissed. I’d rather look approachable :)

You can see in this image how my body looks much wider since the eye is drawn to the distance between my feet and creates a ‘boxy’ assumption about my figure. My hand on my hip is not helping the ‘box’.

3) Don’t put all of your weight on the hip/leg closest to the camera. Putting your weight on any leg will cause your muscles to bulk up a bit (as it should!). Whatever is closest to the camera (boobs, legs, head, shoulders, knees, toes, etc) will appear the largest. This is great if we're trying to make something appear fuller/larger (like the booty for example). However, in this particular pose it a) creates the illusion of larger thighs and tummy regions b) will make you appear inches shorter c) will give the idea of weight that isn’t there, especially in the tummy area. I can’t believe I am even putting this online. This is something that I would de-tag right away and hold against my so-called friend for the rest of her life.

You can see in this photo how my thighs appear larger than they normally are since that is where I am holding my weight. The angle makes me look much shorter than I am, and I have some bulges in the tummy.

And now for the "DO"s...

3) Do stand at an angle and
4) Do put all of your weight on your back hip and
5) Do put your hand on the smallest part of your waist. You can see an insta-difference between this image and the above image. They are the same pose, just with the back-hip/leg holding my weight. The angle works well with the camera. I have what I want to appear the ‘smallest’ the furthest away from the camera. This pose should be your go-to. Hands-on-hip are a great accessory to this pose, but make sure your elbows are out so that you don’t appear to only have one arm.
I’m going to use this shot for my Miss. America swimsuit entry. I kid, I kid.

Success!! I hope all of your swimsuit images are stupendous this year. Remember, these posing tricks/tips also apply to clothed photos :)
