We never cease to be honored at the lengths babes will travel to have their own Self Love Experience. Our furthest babe traveled to us from Australia a few years ago!
It is true though, we do have women from all over the United States and abroad travel to us for their Experience!
We are lucky to have our studio based in such an adorable and walk-able town, and that several of our past clients have GORGEOUS airbnb’s in walking distance of our studio who offer our traveling clients special rates on their stays!!
Troy, NY is a little artistic hub in the middle of a historical downtown…this scenic town is filled with many great shops, restaurants, art galleries and vintage stores. I know that after Coronavirus, Troy will be a city that thrives again.
You see I have always said that Troy is in the middle of a Renaissance. And what came before the last Renaissance? The plague.
Covid19 is our plague and the artists and entrepreneurs in this town are ready for the resurgence of art and entertainment (….well as soon as we are allowed.) We have been creating, planning, and working on new models of sanitation for our customers. This has not been a downtime for the businesses of this town…this has been a time of innovation and creation for every single business owner that I know in Troy.
I will say, until sitting to write this blog this morning, I did not realize how appropriate the term “Renaissance Woman” was to describe our clients.
Our clients are women that appreciate art and science, are intelligent, and extremely capable!
“Renaissance woman. Renaissance woman. (noun.) A woman who has broad intellectual interests and is accomplished in areas of both the arts and the sciences.”
I am proud to say that many of the past and present clients of Self Love Experience also work for Regeneron – the company based in the Capital Region of New York that is on the precipice of a treatment for Covid19!
Do you know how proud it makes me to be able to say that I know these women?!?!?!
YES WOMEN ARE ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE FIGHT AND THE FRONT LINES OF THE CURE!
You see for too long women have been underestimated. How can we be smart AND sexy? How can you appreciate art AND science? How can we be modest in public but still want to be adventurous in bed?
It is an honor for me to be able to show the multi-faceted and unstoppable nature of our clients!
On that note, our sale on 2021 dates continues as long as NY is on Pause
Read below to see what this out of town babe has to say about her own Self Love Experience!
“You asked me to write a few words. I really decided to write it at out as a journal entry, raw and honest – take from it what you want. I needed to write this for myself:
I found Lindsay Rae Photography through a friend who did it herself. I instantly fell in love with Lindsay’s eye and the way she captures a woman’s beauty; but I wasn’t sure if the investment was “worth it” for my budget. Not only was it the investment, but I live in Miami, Florida, and LRP is located in Troy, New York – this meant, days off work, airfare, hotel, – an entire trip – just for a photoshoot?
YES, AN ENTIRE TRIP FOR A PHOTOSHOOT.
I decided to say “fuck it, make it happen” and I booked it during the Black Friday special.
I booked it because I deserved it, and amidst a separation, why not book something that will make me feel sexy in my own skin?
A couple months later, I divorced, and that weight gain crept in, Oh did it creep in. I began to doubt myself, do I really want to stand in from of the camera after gaining 30 pounds? I had to. I wasn’t going to talk myself out of it. I began to embrace it, to embrace myself- flaws and all, to embrace the true me. I felt empowered by it and it began to get clear to me: this experience was about finding and coming back to my true self, my rebirth, and embracing my mind, body and soul and realizing I am perfectly imperfect the way I am.
Now, the fun part – Arriving at the studio it was clear to see that this is a one of a kind experience.
I’ve done many shoots before, but the energy in this studio was unstoppable. The amount of detail that Lindsay and her team put into the shoot made me feel like a superstar; it was truly something I’ve never had at other shoots. They were honest and open which I adored. I was very comfortable throughout the entire session.
The team made me feel like a bad ass and now I have pictures to remind myself of what I am capable of : not only of my outer beauty, but that I showed up for myself in a time full of self doubt and worth. Often fear paralyzes us, but sometimes you have to be willing to just get up and prove to yourself what you’re capable of.
Do it because you can, because you’re worth it and because you’re a badass unstoppable babe.
Celebrate yourself today, just the way you are.” – Ms. R
