The only thing that fits everyone | Boudoir in Atlanta

“You’re never fully dressed without a smile”- Annie

Fun Fact- I spent a lot of time in musical theater growing up (and so did our Client Manager, Kelsey!), and I was in “Annie” twice! Once as Grace and once as Lilly. If you know anything about those two characters then you will understand when I say that they represent the variants of my personality so well. I’m a little classy and a little sassy. Basically, I’ll wear a nice slicked-back bun but I’ll let my thong hang out.

Of course, I didn’t know that back when I was playing those characters, but I can see it now! I guess that’s how most things in our lives work, we can’t fully see the big picture sometimes until we’re a bit removed from it. Originally I had wanted to be a foreign ambassador to the United Nations, but here I am now, a boudoir photographer in Atlanta. See? I’m multifaceted.

Anyway, take 3 seconds to smile, y’all. A REAL smile. Toothy and stuff 😁... and then have an amazing rest of your workday.

What shouldn't be a concern during your shoot? | Boudoir Atlanta | Client Interview

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Something has changed recently in the way that we find companies and brands that we love. I used to Google what I needed in order to find the best options. We can talk about my Google search history later ;) Now that social media is around (and since Google is full of ads) we’ve moved on a bit from Google and we’ve started relying more on direct recommendations and referrals. With something so personal as boudoir I cannot emphasize how thankful I am that our clients refer us out to their friends, family, dentist, dog walkers, etc. We aren’t just referred for boudoir in Atlanta, we are referred for boudoir around the country.

This client came in as one such referral, and I’m so glad she did. She trusted the process and the experience (you should read her advice about that below). The result: incredible images that are carrying her through this chapter in life. Of course, I can already predict that the chapter after this is going to have her moonlighting as a Taraji P Henson lookalike, but right now I think she is doing just fine ;)

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

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

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

Doing a boudoir session was always on my bucket list but I became inspired after I saw a friends pictures. I decided to book shortly afterwards. 


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?  

The reason I hesitated on booking the session was due to me feeling like my body wasn’t in the best shape it could be. Actually booking a session motivated me to concentrate on working out a little more.  Immediately after taking just one picture with Sarah I realized my body shouldn’t have even been a concern.

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

I chose OWN based on my friends recommendation, but I was quickly impressed by the impeccable attention to detail exhibited throughout the entire company.

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

I wasn’t expecting to feel so comfortable and confident. I felt like a supermodel during the shoot! 

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

the images..etc) Seeing the images while shooting and during my reveal was my favorite part.

8) How has the response been to your images?

I have received a million compliments on my images.

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

Make sure you feel comfortable in all stages because I think that translates into an unforgettable experience. 

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

My beauty was captured so well with my clothes off that it has helped me be even more confident with clothes on!

Our first annual client appreciation month is here!!

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Welcome to OWN Boudoir’s first annual Client Appreciation month!!


During the entire month of August we are focusing on the most important part of our business: YOU!

In August of 2012 we started OWN boudoir and I cannot believe that we have been successfully growing our boudoir business for the last seven years! We definitely couldn’t have done it without clients and supporters like you. We’ve been all over the US photographing boudoir photoshoots for the last 7 years and I cannot wait to meet more of you here in Atlanta and around the world.

We knew that just one day of appreciation wouldn’t be enough, and a week seemed too rushed, so we decided to do a full month to show you exactly how much we care. 

Throughout the month we will be highlighting some of our favorite local lingerie boutiques like Trashy Diva and AnnaBella, hosting client dinners (come bring margaritas with us!), showcasing a few of our repeat clients, and doing a TON of giveaways! 

Each Thursday we will have a giveaway on our Instagram page, so head on over there each Thursday for the details! On each Friday of this month we will have a BIG giveaway, and details will be given in this newsletter each week! 

Here’s just a hint of what we’ll be giving away: Our favorite body chain for boudoir shoots, gift cards for Nouvelle Nail Spa and Sephora, a 16x24 Wall Art print, tickets to the Girls Gotta Eat live podcast, and a MAJOR giveaway at the end of the month. 

Head on over to today’s post on Instagram for the start of our giveaways, and we can’t wait to show you how much we appreciate you!
