If there's one thing I've learned from personal experience and being behind the camera it's this: photos have a unique power to empower, to heal, and to inspire.
My vision for boudoir is to bring out your inner soul, to show you how others see YOU. The beauty, the grace, the feistiness, the strength, the light, the sultry, all the pieces that make up your story and the incredible woman within. The vulnerability of saying yes to boudoir is a huge step in your self-love journey. To be vulnerable is to be brave. to be courageous. to stare down the lies you tell yourself and see the truth of your own beauty, strength and worth.
You are worth loving. You are worth it all. You don't need to feel brave, skinny, fit, beautiful, put together, happy, whatever to do boudoir. trust me. You just need to show up and be YOU.

I direct my shoots like a mini film with different scenes and wardrobe changes based off your vision and desire for the shoot. It doesn’t matter your shape or size, you’re gonna feel confident as HELL as I direct you through different poses and movement. The biggest thing to remember is to arch that back and rock your vibe.
I'm the feisty short woman in love with telling stories. I am an adventurous wedding + boudoir photographer based outta Raleigh, NC.

My name is Sarahruth O’Boyle. I am a teacher and an artist. I see beauty in every person, every detail and every ounce of darkness.
I am not burdened by the status-quo, instead I value those that seek to break it. Those that see the world differently - Those that aren’t afraid to find themselves over and over again - those that see the beauty and strength in that process.
I seek to make the world beautiful by challenging the idea of beauty. My name is Sarahruth O’Boyle, and what I create, is Modern Alchemy.

"To do something that you feel in your heart is great, you need to make a lot of mistakes. Anything that’s successful is a series of mistakes.”
First off, let me start by saying Caity is amazing! She knows how to make you feel confident, sexy and strong all at the same time, plus she’s such a badass!
I’ve always wanted to do a shoot like this and admired Caity’s work, but never felt confident enough to actually do one. so when I got the opportunity to do one, I was excited but also very nervous. excited because I was going to get to shoot with my amazing friend and knew she could work her magic no matter what, but nervous because I don’t look like the skinny models I see in pictures. I have scars that I’m still trying to learn how to love and I feel like I’m totally awkward in front of a camera.
At the beginning of the shoot, I felt somewhat uncomfortable because I didn’t know what to do with my hands, but Caity came to the rescue and told me exactly what to do and that helped a lot! I became more and more confident as we kept taking photos. by the end it all started to feel natural and it was easy to just be myself.
Looking at the pictures, I am blown away. i can’t believe that is me! I'm so happy that I was able to shoot with Caity and I definitely recommend that everyone, especially women, try it at least once! It’ll change your life! ”
I truly love to celebrate what my body can do. it carries my soul around this world and allows me, with consistent attention, to experiment with it. and through all those experiments, i learn, i fail, i am amazed, i get annoyed, discouraged and then surprised over and over again. sometimes, the little bits around my body take over my attention and can consume the total self. that pimple, bulge, dimple, scar, frizz, sag, you name it! i am quicker these days, due to practice (i.e. age), to move away from the little bits and catch up with the total package. thing is, once you become a mom, no one takes your picture anymore so you can lose sight of that beautiful, glorious, stunning package.
my husband has a saying “someone always has a bigger boat.” someone always has something you can choose to covet or choose to celebrate. choose you and choose to completely celebrate you. talk to caitlyn, she will graciously take your picture, in whatever degree of sexy boudoir you want, and she’ll show you how all those little bits add up to your complete self.
Shooting with Caity was a dream come true. I was admittedly nervous at the thought of doing a boudior shoot with my (sexy ass) man but Caity and Sarah put us at ease right away. We went over Caity's vision for the shoot while Sarah was working her hair and makeup magic on us (both!) After a few outfit selections, a couple of coffee and khaluas, and so much anticipation; We were off. The shoot seemed to fly by without a second wasted.
Caity was expert about queing poses and scenes, but then letting the chemistry between us take over. All the while she was re-adjusting hairs/hands and angles to make us look our best. There wasn't a second where I was unsure of what I should be doing, and nothing felt forced or awkward in the slightest. It was like being on a romantic date with your very own professional coach and cheerleader. I was so surprised with how fun and sexy this whole experience was... I know it's unreasonable to ask Caity and Sarah to come with me on all of my future dates, so I'll settle for planning another shoot in the very near future.
The whole ride home DC and I were raving about how impressed we were with literally everything; Caity's professionalism and creative vision, Sarah's keen eye magic touch, the beyond adorable location, and how excited we were to see the final pictures and video...I loved every second of this day and cherish all of the incredible pictures and video we got back. I cannot recommend Caity and her team highly enough. If you and your S.O have never tried something like this before, take the leap! You won't regret it.
I met Caitlyn through barre-up, first as a client, then as the photographer who gave the studio its amazing new branding shots. after being floored by my first ever headshot, i decided to do something crazy and booked a boudoir shoot with her.
from start to finish, i couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Caity is great at communication-answering questions quickly and in detail, full transparency about what to expect through the whole process, but most importantly, she really took the time to get to know who i was and what would make this my shoot, not just a shoot. she recognized that i wasn’t “traditional” and spent the whole shoot pulling out the best me i didn’t know i could be.
the photos are spectacular. as someone who has never had a photoshoot besides school pictures, Caitlyn gave me amazing cues and direction to make the overall vision happen for the final shots. the whole photoshoot itself felt so organic and natural as Caitlyn just seemed to “get” what worked best for me and what i was trying to get out of myself. i still can’t believe that it’s me in those photos. 11/10 would book again a million times.”
My boudoir experience with Caity was not just a simple experience, but an incredible one! HMUA Sarahruth turned my blank canvas into my exact boudoir vision— sex-hair and sultry! Caity handed me a glass of white wine (my preferred choice) put on some tunes and made me feel like one million bucks! who wouldn’t want some me-time just like this? its empowering, relaxing, and awakening at the same time. come one, come all. you will leave a model— no matter your shape, height or size. thanks for such an incredible time, Caity!
