We’ve got a LOT of jokes about Hump Day around here, for obvious reasons. However, we’ve found that Wednesdays are not only good for jokes, they are great for giving you a bunch of mid-week information! Monday’s can be rough and overwhelming, so we much prefer Wednesday to communicate all of the goings-on around OWN boudoir!

Client Appreciation Month is almost over! | Atlanta Boudoir

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Client Appreciation month has 10 days left! - RSVP to our dinner right here so that you can come hang out with us next Monday!

We should have done this like 7 years ago, but I’m so glad that we finally are doing it now! Our client appreciation month is in full swing and sadly only has 10 days left! Once August 31st hits we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming. Don’t worry, we still appreciate clients a LOT, but in August we like to make a big stink about it. 

Did you know that at the start of Client Appreciation month we’d photographed over 1400 women over the last 7 years? We’ve increased our boudoir club since then, and with fall being our busiest season we are on track to clear 1500 boudoir babes by the end of 2019! Welcome to the club, it’s a fun one to be a part of. 

To give you an idea of what we’ve done in the last month we’ve had: 5 giveaways (including some with our favorite Atlanta boutiques, like RAW Bronzing Studio), 14 boudoir sessions, a SOLID “Can you stump me” session where you guys gave us ideas for boudoir shoots (I’m waiting on someone to fill a bathtub full of rhinestones for their shoot), sent out what feels like a million birthday cards, scheduled client dinners, booked pole dancing classes, and a few more surprises that I can’t disclose because it would ruin it (duh)!

Really what I want to brag about is how honored I am to look back and know that we are able to give our clients an experience that changes them. It’s easy for me to roll my eyes at that statement, but I have to check myself. We give our clients an extremely special experience. That can mean that they get to spend 4 hours on ONLY themselves; sitting in hair and makeup, listening to music that they like, seeing images of themselves that they LOVE, etc. It can also mean that they are taking a huge leap in trusting someone to photograph them when they’ve been terrified of photographs, maybe they’ve even hidden from photographs, for as long as they can remember. 

I appreciate you guys, WE appreciate you guys, and I’m so thankful to get to know you!

Holiday Deadline info because 2019 is coming to an end | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer

Posted on by sarahwitherington@gmail.com

Our busiest boudoir season is fast approaching, and if you are interested in giving the gift of boudoir to yourself or to someone else over the next 4 months then the time to schedule is NOW. Every year we have to say ‘there is no possible way’ to clients with last minute holiday gift ideas and it isn’t fun.

THIS IS NOT A DRILL

For real, the holidays are fast approaching. I think all of us saw the Halloween decor inside of Home Goods during June. 

WTF

But you know what, I’m starting to understand why decor comes out early, it’s just to remind us that before we know it we will be celebrating the holidays! It’s a subtle (or not so subtle) reminder of what is coming up.

That’s why I am alerting you IN AUGUST that the holiday season is fast approaching, and we have some deadlines for you. 


Here are OWN Boudoir’s Holiday deadlines. Holidays include: Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, and Valentine’s Day.

Weekends left for sessions:  4 in total until 2020

Deadline to have your session for Christmas and Hanukkah delivery: December 5th, 2019

Deadline for New Years/January Delivery: December 15th, 2019

Deadline for Valentine’s Day delivery: January 26, 2020.

***Also, here’s a secret for all of our blog readers, we’ll be having a holiday special!***

In order to make sure everyone gets the most opportunities to have a holiday session we have a holiday special in November! The special is from November 1-12th ONLY, and booking is first come first serve! The best thing is that this session can be done before/after work OR during your lunch break. We’re really discrete over here. All of your holiday shopping, whether it is for you or for someone else, can be done in one place. Full details, including package information, will be announced on September 1st!

“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 :)?

37

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

I put people to sleep(anesthesia) for a living

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!
