I had never done a Boudoir shoot and decided to do one with Caroline of Boudoir by Olin earlier this year, because, well, WHY THE HELL NOT!? #bucketlist
And honestly, I had so much fun!
I’m not gonna lie, though — as confident as I come across, I was definitely nervous that all I’d do is make horrible duck faces (thanks for editing those out, Caroline!) and come off awkward AF because I was trying too hard to be “sexy.”
What I loved about my shoot with @boudoirbyolin is that there was absolutely no pretense or expectation of what sexy should look like. In fact, we started out with me in a few athleisure-inspired numbers — because that is TOTALLY my speed and comfort zone (I couldn’t tell you the last time I wore lingerie) — so I was able to relax and just be me without feeling like a complete fish out of water. Then, after a few rounds of images (and a glass or two of champagne), we moved onto something a little more daring and had a lot of fun with that, too!
Bottom line, sexy comes in all shapes and sizes. It can be layered with lace and pearls (or in my case, strategically placed feathers) or covered in Calvins and cardigans. No matter your style or level of comfort, my incredibly talented friend, Caroline, will make you feel COMPLETELY AT EASE and free to be you. And that my friends, is what it truly means to be sexy.
If you’ve ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot, either for your husband, S.O., or yourself (hand raised), a la Samantha from S.A.T.C., I cannot recommend Boudoir by Olin enough. She’s absolutely brilliant with the camera and you honestly feel like you’re hanging out, snapping candid pics with your best friend.
So, what are you waiting for?! Go ahead…be bold and #defineYOURsexy. Click here for Caroline’s upcoming Boudoir dates, holiday pricing and details! I promise, you won’t regret it!
And in the meantime, below are a few more snaps from my session (PG, of course).
