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!

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

Cooking up something new for 2018 | Atlanta boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Stay tuned for what's new with OWN boudoir in 2018

Well to be perfectly honest, we stayed up pretttttyyyyyy late last night ringing in 2018. It's almost 6pm and I think the advil is finally kicking in. I feel lucky to be where I am right now, but this headache needs to find a new place to be. 

A couple of days ago I had our last shoots of 2017 here in Boston! I'm in Boston for a few days while my boyfriend works on a conference. It's nice to be able to commute with him and step away from Atlanta for a few days! While he's been designing staging and sound set-ups I've been chilling (literally. it's like 7 degrees here) at various coffee shops and hotel lobbies thinking of new and wonderful ideas for OWN boudoir in 2018 and beyond. 

We have a newsletter, did you know? The first announcement of 2018 is coming soon, so if you're not on our email list then go ahead and let us know! We'll add you to it and then you'll be in the know! 

Happy new year, ya'll! I hope your advil kicked in earlier than mine

xoxo,

Sarah

Shine bright like a diamond... | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

One of the most fun (I resisted the urger to say "funnest") parts of planning your boudoir session is that we get to plan your wardrobe. 

My descriptive phrase for this portion of the planning process is: Adult Dress up

Of course, that phrase makes wardrobe planning sound a little more rated-R than it actually is, but hey.... sometimes we DO get a little R-rated for your boudoir session! 

About a month ago we had a lovely lady come in for her 6th (sixth!!!) session with us. The challenge presented to us for this particular session was to make sure that her wardrobe planning, or adult dress-up, let us choose a wardrobe that was completely different than anything she has done with us. 

Challenge accepted. 

Immediately I thought about a rhinestone body-suit. I had seen a few during my Pinterest and Instagram browsing hours, and there are a few boutiques here in Atlanta that carry them. After we mentioned this idea we all knew that this was definitely the route we wanted to go with her wardrobe. Of course, sometimes when you have a brilliant idea the universe throws a wrench and you realize you've got to works a little harder for that idea. 

With the rhinestone bodysuit we quickly discovered that they are a) Hard to find and b) extremely pricey due to them needing to be custom made. We didn't have that kind of time or budget, though, so an extreme brain-storming session needed to be had. 

Cue the brilliant brain of my client manager (and wardrobe planner), Kelsey. She suggested that we create our own illusion of a rhinestone bodysuit by buying individual sheets of rhinestones and manually sticking them to the skin of our client. Brilliant. 

Tedious...

....but brilliant. 

The results were that we had an insanely unique boudoir look that we had full control over. I loveeeeeeee it. AND I got to keep the additional rhinestone sheets for my own adult dress-up.
