08 Sep Curvy Unicorn | Austin Boudoir Photography
We’ve all seen those horrible “boudoir” sessions go viral. You know the ones. The sexy dinosaur, the chubby bearded farmer on a tractor…or laying in a field of grass, the Cookie Monster and the red Muppet in heels.
Just. God. Awful.
And honestly, an embarrassment to my lovely genre of photography.
I wholeheartedly believe that men should be shot in a boudoir session. Do it correctly. Light him well, pose him well, flatter his body and features. But — don’t make it, and him, a joke. If you’d like to see some male boudoir DONE RIGHT, check out my best friend Jen Swedhin’s work. She specializes in shooting male boudoir.
So, when the conversation came up between my teammates and myself (Sarah & Lauren), we wanted to put something together that would be truly WORTHY of going viral. And so we decided: What would be better than a CURVY UNICORN BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?!
That’s right – nothing!
So, we got together for a super secret session and we played. Lauren rocked the fuck out of the unicorn makeup. (For our makeup nerds: she used NYX, Makeup Forever, Kat Von D, RCMA & House of Lashes) Sarah made sweet love to the wigs and wardrobe. We jammed loud music, drank truckloads of caffeine and got to work, y’all. It’s been soooo hard keeping it on the DL.
If you know Sarah, you’ll understand why she was chosen to be our unicorn. She is the literal definition of a unicorn. She is sparkly and pretty and sugary sweet and so happy, all the damn time. She is a magnet that just pulls you in. Then she takes such good care of you and covers you in love and kisses and all things unicorn-y. If you have not met Sarah yet, please make it your life’s mission to be in her presence. She is seriously incredible. She is my spirit animal…and I’m sure will become yours once you see this session.
We will be showcasing this session, along with some of our others, at the RAW art show in Austin next week. Please find out more info on that by CLICKING HERE.
And now, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to Sarah, the unicorn. ?
We decided to submit this session for a feature in the boudoir magazine, Philosophie and we were accepted! YAY!
