CLIENT FEATURE :: The Empowered Woman | Austin Boudoir Photography

Makeup: Lauren Torres |
Wardrobe & Hair: Sarah Swofford |


I very rarely do any giveaways or specials, but on International Women’s Day this past March, I did one that I called “The Empowered Woman” in our private, ladies only Facebook group (Join us by clicking HERE!). Kelly was our lucky winner!  She won a full boudoir session, which includes a custom Pinterest mood/inspiration board, professional hair & makeup, as well as wardrobe styling and the actual photo shoot.  We had a total blast and she worked it so hard, y’all! It was truly AMAZING!


More from Kelly:
Why did you book a boudoir session? What’s your story?

It was my lucky day & I won a boudoir sesh. I’ve always wanted to do one, but would flake out because I never thought I was skinny or sexy enough. After I won the empowered woman contest, I had no excuses not to do it!

Going into the shoot, were you worried about anything?

I’m a big introvert & am just awkward in general. I was mostly worried about looking like a deer in headlights in my pictures.

What would you tell other women about doing a boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir?

Go for it! Don’t wait until you’re the perfect weight or size. None of that matters. The Torrid Boudoir girls will make you look and feel like a rock star!

What was your favorite part of your session?

Surprisingly, the between the sheets session. I wasn’t sure about it at first but those pics ended up being my favorites.

Would you have another boudoir shoot with Torrid Boudoir in the future?

In a heart beat. I hope to do it again some day!

What changes have you noticed in yourself after your photo shoot with Torrid Boudoir?

I’m more accepting of myself and my body. I’ve always had a distorted body image of myself and I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t on a “diet” I’ve learned to let that go, enjoy life and be present in photos. In the end the only thing that matters is that you embraced life & were grateful for the gifts (and body) you were given.

Thank you, Kelly, for putting your complete trust in me & my team.
You are a fucking BEAUTY QUEEN!
