oudoir by Olin is Sacramento's premier boudoir studio, but we shoot clients all from all over the country. Through a passion for photography and a desire to help women discover their inner and outer beauty, we have cultivated a strong belief in
helping women to truly believe in their beauty and themselves. At Boudoir by Olin, we provide professional hair and makeup services not to make you look better, but to help you see that you are gorgeous.
It’s not about how you look but rather how you feel about the way you look. Confidence is truly a beautiful thing. Confidence is what we all need. Confidence, self acceptance and personality is what we bring out in the women we photograph. You are perfect now. It is our job to coach and find the model within you that has been there all along.
Some of us forget what it’s like to feel beautiful and strong along the way. We get to busy with our lives, our family & our jobs.
This experience is for you to feel that again… because you truly are perfect right now.
i there! I am Caroline and I am passionate about women and being a woman. My good friends call me Olin. I am passionate about capturing the female form at its finest and most fierce.
I have been doing photography for over 10 years. Boudoir is so precious to me because I love helping women feel better about themselves, inside and out. We all struggle with self image, and I want to help women overcome as much of that as I can. I love the WOW factor. I love delivering images to women and having them say, "I can't believe that's me! I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life!" It means so much to me to be able to offer that to women, and that women of all ages trust me to provide them with this experience.
I have an all female team that is ready to show you how gorgeous you are. I welcome you to my personally designed, beautiful studio just for boudoir.
You don't need to lose 15 pounds to do a session with me. You don't need to be Beyonce curvy. You just need to be you. Have fun. And enjoy this moment. You won't regret it!!
Boudoir technically is a French word which means 'a woman's dressing room or bedroom', but I like to think of it as just a fancy word for women's intimate portraiture. Boudoir is NOT pornographic. Boudoir can be fun, flirty, beautiful, cute, sexy, feminine, intimate, candid, posed, or really anything else you want it to be. If you have not already joined our private VIP group on Facebook, I highly suggest that you do!
Maybe the idea of a boudoir session doesn't sound like an important thing for you- but I would argue that it *can* indeed be, and in numerous ways! While a boudoir session doesn't replace some good old fashioned therapy for any body image issues you may have, it for sure can help!! I LOVE showing women how beautiful they are. There are so many things that hold us back from seeing and feeling how stunning we really all are. From societal pressure, the ridiculous way we are all supposed to fit into standard clothing sizes (who else has felt their self esteem deflate in a dressing room??), body changes due to having a baby, or even a change in medication, I mean...the list goes on, right? We DESERVE to feel as beautiful as we really are. A boudoir session can help with breaking through all that crap! I know it can be nerve wreaking before a session, and even feel like it's going to be the opposite of this, but I promise you once you get in the groove of your session that will change. I don't know how many times I've heard these things during or after a session: "Damn, I look good!", "I was so nervous, but this was SO fun and empowering!", "Holy what?? That's me!"
Not only can boudoir sessions help you with any body image issues, but they can also be incredibly empowering. Even if you are booking with the intention of it being a sexy gift for your love, it's also something you are doing for yourself. You are choosing to get sexy in front of another person that you may not know well, and in front of a camera, and own it. That takes some guts, and is powerful. YOU are powerful, and that's part of how badass of a beauty you are.
Tap into that foxy goddess ladies- it's in there and it's time to own it and show it off!
We have an incredible community of women in a women only VIP group! Be the first to know about specials, contests, and shoots.
Once you arrive, I will go through your wardrobe and plan out your shoot. If your session includes hair and makeup, our professional hair and makeup artist will be ready to create the perfect look you’re going for! All you need to do it show up! Together, we will create a variety of looks within your session. I will use flattering lighting, show you all the poses and of course, retouch (more on that later). I will pose you from the angles of your head the whole way down to your fingertips! As you can see there's nothing to worry about, we've got you covered!
With our all female staff you're in good hands, and we can't wait for your shoot! Once you book your shoot, we’ll send you a fun questionnaire where you can tell us exactly the look you’re going for! The day of your shoot, I will be prepared to create the perfect look for you!
Professional hair and makeup is such an essential part of the boudoir photography experience; it can make or break your photo shoot and that’s why we only work with the best makeup and hair artist! Leah, our professional hair/makeup stylists that we've worked with for years is highly experienced. Not only does she know how to give you the perfect look you’re wanting, but most importantly they know how to do makeup for the particular lighting and retouching techniques we use.
Do you have a specific look in mind? In addition to your questionnaire, feel free to create a Pinterest board and send us the link!
We have put together this gallery of Before and After photos to illustrate how much professional makeup can help. We would also like to point out that we only photograph real women and not models. Through our posing, lighting, editing and creativity, we are able to accentuate the beauty of all our clients.
One of the most common concerns about doing a boudoir shoot is, what will I wear? I ask our clients to bring 3-6 different looks, depending on their session type and not including jerseys or button downs. Jersey's are cute, but not cute enough to shoot a whole set in. Also remember to bring a variety of items. A good rule of thumb is, if you would not wear it to work then it is probably perfect for your shoot!
When you book, you will start to receive a bunch of emails, spaced out from the time you book to the date of your shoot. It will include a guide that lists our favorite websites and also has information about different types of lingerie. However, It is very important that you bring your wardrobe so you know it fits you properly. Fit is SO important. We can not fix ill fitting lingerie in Photoshop.
If you have lots of ideas and outfits and you’re having trouble narrowing them down then I always recommend you bring it all! It is better to have too much than not enough.
ur client closet is available to all to use. We invite our special ladies to take a peek into our collection. We frequently add to and update our client closet.
The closet is stocked with gorgeous bodysuits and pieces ranging in sizes from XS-XXXL (we do not carry pieces with cup sizes). We also keep a selection of shoes in sizes 6-10 as well as accessories, kimono's, robes and jackets. We regularly add to the client closet with new pieces that are on trend. Please note that we cannot promise the available of specific pieces
We ask that our ladies bring a pair of nude and black thongs to wear under our garments. Each piece is cleaned after each use to ensure that all our pieces are hygienic for all our clients. The client closet is a great solution for ladies wanting to add that extra bit of something to their outfits.
I have photographed women of all shapes and sizes. I will tell you everything to do, from the angles of your head the whole way to your toes. You don’t need to worry about a thing, you just need to simply show up for your session.
I have years of training in posing to ensure that you are always posed in the most flattering ways and under the most flattering lighting. Once it’s time for your shoot I will just ask you to do simple things such as: “bring that shoulder towards me, bring your chin forward a bit, now look up at me with your eyes, put your hand here, etc.” It’s super simple and again you don’t need to do anything to prepare for this.
"Do you use Photoshop?" This is the number one question we are asked. The answer is "YES". You can rest at ease knowing that we’ve been in business for a long time and our customers love how we do this! You will still be YOU, just a retouched glamorous version of you!

Can't wait to chat with you soon!
Our studio is located at 1515 N C Street in Downtown Sacramento. We have a meticulously designed space with amazing lighting, multiple set ups, a makeup and wardrobe area, and a fabulous sales area full of samples and a large flat screen from which you will view your images during your reveal. Our studio is FULL of gorgeous natural light, hardwood floors, and hand selected decor in our historic brick building.
I actually believe that boudoir is the best gift you can give YOURSELF, to capture your essence as you are now. When you need a reminder of the strong, beautiful woman that you are, you will have a collection of amazing portraits to look upon. I love it when women come to me for themselves. The images we create together will boost your self esteem and your confidence, and that should be celebrated by YOU! It will help you reclaim your femininity, your sexuality, two things that are often lost as we get consumed with our lives, our jobs, our families. Put that pep back in your step, and reflect on the bodacious babe you are. Celebrate the body that you live in!
There is no such thing as the perfect body. You are never too big, too small, too old, too young (well, I only accept boudoir clients who are 18+) to do a boudoir session. Boudoir is for every BODY. Let me show you.
I want to help you feel beautiful now, just the way you are. We flatter you with hair and makeup styling, a wardrobe that compliments your figure, and amazing lighting and posing techniques to highlight your best ass-sets (see what I did there?). I do not believe in heavy photoshopping. Don't get me wrong, we will gladly remove all of your bruises and pimples, but we don't want to over manipulate your body to make you look like someone you are not. We already live in a time where we are consumed with unrealistic bodies in the media, I want to show you that you are beautiful at this very moment.
I offer 45 minute Signature Sessions with 4 outfits, hair and make up at $400. Sessions take place weekdays in our Sacramento studio. Additionally, I offer 1 hour Couture sessions with hair and make up in your home or selected location anywhere in the world. Most ladies opt for a Signature Session. We can discuss this more during our phone chat, so let's schedule one!
Your location and duration of session will depend on the type of session you choose! I am going to pose you from head to pointed toe, and help you with a variety of facial expressions! Prepare to be sore after your session, we do a LOT of bending and twisting (it's quite the workout!). It's super fun and you'll walk out of the studio feeling amazing. I photograph studio sessions on weekdays.
Two weeks after the session you will return to the studio for your Image Reveal & Ordering Appointment! We will select which images you would like to purchase and how you would like to display them at home! Ordering appointments take approximately 1-1.5 hours. Come prepared to pay in full at your viewing session unless you are taking advantage of our payment plans (more info on this coming to you soon!).
You will receive your images in about 4-6 weeks once your final payment is processed! We usually drop ship everything directly to you in order to keep this process as simple as possible. We do not offer online galleries or multiple appointments for your reveal, all ordering decisions must be made at your reveal appointment.
Our studio books up 4-6 months in advance and our printed products can take up to 8 weeks for delivery. If you have a special occasion coming up or wish to book a holiday appointment, I recommend booking 12 months in advance of that date.
Absolutely, we love it if you bring cheerleaders! The more the merrier! Partners, friends and mothers are however NOT allowed at your session.
Some ladies just get a basic album, others come to me, want it all and invest several thousands on a collection. Keep in mind what you spend is up to you. You can purchase from our Collection Menu or the A La Carte Menu, both will be sent to you following the completion of your booking process.
Many of my clients utilize PayPal Credit to pay for their collection, and for those who do not qualify I offer in-house financing payment options. You are always welcome to pay in full with cash or credit/debit cards.
