CLIENT FEATURE :: That Girl | Austin Boudoir Photography

“For this first time in a really long time, I felt beautiful. I was so stuck on society’s beliefs on what beauty should be that I forgot what real-life beauty is.”  ~ Loren

You know that one girl…the one that you just need know?

You see her and you just know that she is incredible.  She’s smart, she’s sassy, she’s loyal.

She’s legit.

Loren Torrid Boudoir
Well, Loren is THAT girl.  I am lucky enough to call her my cousin [more like little sister] and also one of my very, very best friends in the world.

When I decided to throw my first “model call” in a fancy hotel suite this past summer, she was the first person I thought of.  Not only is she completely & utterly beautiful, but she has an equally amazing personality.  She has an infectious laugh and is a real treat to be around!  I knew I could count on her to help me “throw” it, but I also really wanted to shoot her as one of my models.  When she agreed to do both, I was thrilled, to say the least.

This is what Loren had to say:

 “I was extremely nervous.  I was at my most vulnerable state, just the camera and a few pieces of fabric covering me.  I was worried that I wasn’t skinny enough or pretty enough.  That all of the flaws I saw would show up on the prints.  Elizabeth took all of those worries and threw them out of the room.  She was encouraging, sexy, and fun!”

Q&A with Miss Loren

1. Looking back on the planning process, do you feel like you were given adequate information and references to help you better prepare for your shoot?
Yes! We set up a Pinterest board, she has lots of helpful links on her website and she was always attentive to my needs.

2. What was your favorite part about your session with Torrid Boudoir?
Feeling like a queen! The hair and makeup experience was so fun.  I felt like I was a little girl playing dress up.

3. If you could tell future clients one thing about booking with Torrid Boudoir, what would it be?
Don’t over analyze your decision to book a session.  It is completely worth every penny.  You’ll feel like a fierce and foxy female the whole entire time.

4. Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?  Why or why not?
Yes! I would love to book a wedding gift session (photos for my future hubby in my pretty bridal attire), a bridal boudie party and a couples session.

5. What changes have you noticed in yourself after your photo shoot with Torrid Boudoir?
I’m much more comfortable being naked.  That helps a lot in the bedroom 😉


At one point during Loren’s session, I *literally* started crying as I was shooting.  It was intense.  She was blossoming into a woman that completely accepted herself, and owned her sexuality, right in front of my eyes.  I simply asked her to slowly feel herself.  To move around, roll around and be “in her own moment”.  She did it and she totally transformed.

That is EXACTLY why I do this.  I strive to make a difference in my client’s lives.  I want to help women recognize their true beauty.  My goal is to help them embrace their incredible sensuality.

These are the images I captured at that moment.  Some of my favorites I’ve ever shot:

She is such an amazing woman.

Thank you, Loren.  I will never, ever forget your session.  I love you.
