As a Good Christian Girl – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Read this one…don’t stop reading until the end. Then check out her gorgeous art! Girl has something to say and we need to listen: —- “I’m not sure where to start or exactly why I was filled with so much emotion during my reveal (Yes, I ugly cried) so I thought I would start with a quote that speaks to the depths of my soul…. “Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” ~unknown I remember the

This is What Happens When You Surrender – Albany | Saratoga Springs | Troy | New York – Boudoir

If you follow us on instagram (@lindsayraephotography) you have seen lots of this incredible woman this week. I am pretty sure her power is palpable….but isn’t it funny how silently women suffer? We never know who is really struggling or why and that is why I find this weeks blog so important to read. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, even the most confident woman struggles on the inside and that is what we are here to help you with. Take some time and read about her experience below. —– “Life is hard. In a world of well

Learning to Love My Body After PostPartum Depression – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Let’s get down and dirty and real here today.  Where are all my moms at?  Any woman who has given birth can probably understand alot of what me and today’s #LRPBoudieBeauty are talking about.  The post partum experience and the birthing experience as a whole is not always “The most beautiful thing ever” and “The best day of your life” In fact, the day my daughter was born was hands down the worst day of my life.  Now I will never tell her this because I don’t ever want her to think that it is her fault, but my birth

The Fear of Aging – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Sometimes words escape us….and that is ok.  I always ask our babes to send me a few words about their experience and when I asked this incredible woman the same, she thought she struggled with words, but what really happened was she spoke from such a true and beautiful place of vulnerability. In my 20’s aging was never a thought in my mind…hell, I never thought I would live past 25 (hi anxiety) so now that I am 31, the concept of getting older has really started to impact my thoughts and decisions.  I see my face changing and

When It Rains – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

As most of you know, this summer I was given the opportunity to travel to Canada and teach at a Camp of over 150 boudoir photographers from across the world.  It was definitely an honor to be asked to teach and an experience I will never forget!  I was asked to teach 3 classes, 2 along side my boo Teri, and the students we had the opportunity to teach left such an impact on me.  There are few things better for the soul then to be surrounded by peers who respect you and who’s passion for the art of

I Never Thought I Could Be Free – Saratoga Springs | Albany |Troy | New York – Boudoir

I could not conceive of a more appropriate blog to share this week…the week of Independence Day. Despite the many MANY faults of our country, especially under the leadership of our current fascist misogynistic cheeto of a president, this United States is still the land of the free.  There is so much that I take for granted living here, always blinded by the fight for equality, and so infrequently taking a moment to realize how lucky I am to be from here. We have a long way to go America…for our immigrants, for our black brothers and sisters, for

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

This is one of those times where I feel like I don’t need to say much because our #LRPBoudieBeauty says it all. PS:  The Independence Day Flash Sale ends at 11pm  7/2/18  (You must be a member of our VIP Group to take advantage of the sale!) Read what this incredible woman has to say about her LRP Self Love Experience below: —- “The Statement ‘We are our own worse enemy’, that is how I have lived most my entire life, and I’m not sure why. Whenever I would see a picture of myself or look in the mirror,

Mellow Melancholy – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I recently was invited to go to Canada to teach at a camp for boudoir photographers that was hosted by the Do More Photographers Community! I believe there was close to 200 Boudoir Photographers from around the world who gathered at this children’s sleepaway camp to learn, shoot and bond. It was a crazy and out of the normal experience for me, because anyone who knows me knows that I do NOT nature very well…the closest thing to sleeping in nature that I participate in is a hotel room with trees outside its window…and even that is out of

Why I Canceled My First Session – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I won’t lie, I was pretty shocked when I read this incredible woman’s blog for the first time.  When she cancelled her first session back in 2015, she told me it was her husband that didn’t want her to do the session…I wish I knew then what I know now so I could have supported her in the right way her first time booking… As my mom tells me….Everything happens for a reason.  In 2015 we didn’t have Randi on staff and having the personal styling add-on has literally changed the face of LRP. Our styling add-ons have become
