HMUA – Katie Thierrien

HMUA = Hair and Make Up Artist 🙂


Hi I’m Katie. I’m a licensed makeup artist and hairstylist of 4 years specializing in hairstyling, beauty and special effects makeup for film, print, weddings, and events.  My favorite part of what I do is the new places it takes me and the diversity of new people and creatives  I meet along the way. I came to Atlanta three years ago and began to love working on films and  doing makeup for photography. Getting to contribute your art form to a bigger piece of art work and seeing the finished project is very satisfying.  I recently started working with a very talented photographer William Allen and got my first magazine publication in Ellements Magazine in December of 2018. When I’m not making people look their best I enjoy dancing and playing with my dog Chloe.

Will my photos from the shoot be shared on the internet?

Not unless you grant permission for us to use specific photos that you select for our marketing purposes.  On our pre shoot agreement, you can initial and date granting permission or not granting permission.  Either way, your private images are kept safe.

Can I bring an escort/significant other?

Absolutely!  They are more than welcomed to come along & I may ask them to jump in and take a couple pics while you are changing ha ha.  We only ask that they do not take photos, stories or snap chats during the session as it tends to distract everyone from concentrating on making the best photos possible.

What should I wear?

Prior to the session date, we will consult with you on wardrobe suggestions and brain storm on procurement.  We will send you links to stores for you to choose outfits from.  We always suggest a cute one piece  as it flatters every shape and size.

Is nudity required?

Absolutely not,  You the client dictate what outfits that we shoot in.  Some clients choose to create implied nude fine art photographs with sheets and drapes, however as stated prior – the client is the driver of the session.

How much will you edit me? Can you photoshop my body?

Boudoir editing to me is more about “keeping it real” so to speak.  Where as editing for glamour and beauty take it to another level with liquefying parts of the body and totally smoothing out the skin.   I do smooth out the skin a touch to improve consistency and remove temporary blemishes such a bruises, pimples etc.  But for the most part, I believe if you are properly posed and the lighting is manipulated correctly, less editing is required.    For those that want more extensive editing, that can be discussed prior to the shoot or  the reveal session at a per photo cost basis. 

Okay I’m excited and ready to book!  what’s the complete process?

Excellent 🙂   Click on my scheduling link here to see our availability.  We only conduct up to 4 to 5 shoots a month so that we give 100 percent focus, creatively and attention to each client.  We are quality first instead of quantity  so book early – often as possible.
After receiving your date and time request, we will contact you to collect the $100 deposit, confirm the shoot type and to answer any other questions.
We will then email you our shoot agreement form for you to sign and bring with you to the shoot.  We will have an extra copy present on the day of the shoot in case you forget.  We will also discuss wardrobe and send you links to make your selections prior to the shoot. 
Day of the shoot, the remaining session fee is due when you arrive.  Hair and Make up will take an hr or so and we will begin shooting right afterwards. 

How does the Reveal Session work?

Since our studio is located in Midtown, the client has the option of going to get something to eat for an hr or to run errands.  They can then come back for the reveal session the same day or we can schedule one within 7 days. 
At the reveal, the client will see 50 to 75 edited photos from the session for them to choose their favorites.  They can then order from a variety of keepsake products such as albums, canvas prints, additional digital’s or prints, which they will pay for at the reveal. Please allow up to 12 days turnaround time on products to return from printer.

Top 5 reasons why you should book w/ Us

Drum roll please……

5.  The ‘Space’

Our private creative space is a 1000 sf work/live loft with 20 ft ceilings located directly on the popular Atlanta beltline.  With the ability to shoot here or on location, we are proud to offer those options to our clients.  Unlike some in the industry that have to shoot exclusively outside or have to share studio space w/ other photographers, we do NOT share our studio with anyone – which means your session will be private & our ONLY focus.

4. Free Wifi

Nuf said 🙂

3.  Empowerment

There’s something about going out of your comfort zone, that gets your blood flowing.  The rush that you get, the exhilarating feeling of conquering your fears and inhibitions – It just makes you feel so alive again.  There’s nothing that breaks you out of your routine by booking a your own personal photo shoot – you are in control.  Its tough to feel sexy when life calls, but the moments you spend w/us for a session will make it all worth while.

2.  My wife 

Yes yes, I can wax poetic about how much I love and adore my beautiful wife, but you – my next client probably wonders how my wife pertains to you.   In the Atlanta market there are tons of photographers out there, specifically male.  It can be intimidating at least initially for a women to want to do a intimate portrait session or any shoot one on one w/ a male photographer ( that’s why it highly recommended that you bring a escort|friend with you to the shoot)  In my case, my wife is a major part of our team being a co -owner.  I never shoot one on one with a client, she is always present welcoming clients, assisting w/ lighting,  wardrobe selections,  conducting reveal sessions and is the best “hype man”.  Her warm outgoing personality makes you feel at home and relaxed – which creates an atmosphere for the best sessions.

1.  The Experience

Read this from recent client M.P. –

” I contacted William about a special boudoir shoot for my husband that was to be discreet and private. Not for public viewing. His level of professionalism is second to none. The loft and area around there are perfect for unique shoots, and he and his wife are very welcoming. The best part about it is he lets you be you, he gives you the feeling of being a million dollar model no matter your shape or size. I would recommend him for any type of shoot, and will be using him again in the near future”

That testimonial is one of many that sums up how your experience will be with us.   We offer a one stop shop – from our staff hair and make up artist’s handling your pre shoot preparations, to my wife handling everything else in between and myself on the camera, we work to ensure that your experience will be a great one.

Couple’s “Boudoir”

I like to shoot couples, however I like to do it in a non traditional way. When my clients C & A contacted me, I had a creative vision for the shoot which resulted in it being featured in Ellement’s body magazine. My first couples shoot to be published.. Enjoy ..

What is the "Window Series"?!?

The origin of what has become a popular cornerstone of a boudoir shoot with me is a pretty cool one. First, let me start with our studio itself. My wife and I live and work out of our 2 bedroom 1400 sf loft located in downtown (midtown) Atlanta Georgia. Most all of the interior shots you see are done at our private studio.

One day, as I was prepping for a upcoming boudoir shoot with a new client, I was staring out of our bedroom patio door looking at the city view and traffic below. I stepped through the patio door , closed it and looked back for some reason back through the door at the bed and stared. Something clicked in my head and I kept that thought as our client arrived and we shot her first outfit. We shot her 2nd outfit in a different area of our space and then she went to change.

When she returned, I said let’s move to the bedroom. So she she got on the bed, I opened the patio door and stepped out, before closing I gave her the instructions to change her positions|poses every 5 to 10 seconds and I’d give her hand signals if I need her to pause. With that said I closed the door and began to snap away not certain if she would like the outcome. Through the preview screen, I saw amazing images of the client surrounded with city highlights caught in the reflection of the mirror. Shooting through the glass patio door created depth, mystery and a different unique dimension to each image.

Needless to say I was excited with how it turning out, but would the client like it? After she changed, she stepped out for a errand and she came back for the big reveal giving me time to cull the best images from the shoot together. As we flipped through the first few sections, she was super pleased with everything. We then proceeded to the “window series” portion and she was  blown away.  She remarked specifically at how they were visually different from most boudoir photos that she had researched. She walked away with a big smile on her face which meant my job was well done.
Next test were the 2nd and 3rd shoots scheduled that weekend.  They netted the same results = Happy clients. After that, I ran a few stories on Instagram and the feedback was awesome.  A star was born – #windowseries
