Scars – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York, Boudoir

I suffer from really bad anxiety. There are days where I am standing still and minding my own business when out of no where my mind becomes riddled with situations that are out of my control and I freak the fuck out. My heart races, I get dizzy and even more scared. Why am I telling you this? Because my anxiety has left me with many visible scars…many. One of the ways my anxiety presents itself is through picking at my skin.  It is not something I can control or even notice that I am doing until someone points

Let’s Not Forget About Us – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | Boudoir – New York

I am gonna leave the talking to today’s #LRPBoudieBeauty.  Read what she has to say below <3 —- “Let me first say how absolutely thankful I am to Lindsay and Erin for helping me feel beautiful again. It’s been years since I’ve felt so good about myself. I think after awhile women lose how truly special, amazing, and beautiful they are. From how women are viewed in everyday life to media showing an unrealistic standard, friends, work or men (of course most of these examples are unintentional). We are constantly comparing ourselves to something or someone, we’re never quite

New York City Smoke Show – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany Boudoir

I will never forget what this #LRPBoudieBeauty said to me when she first reached out to me about scheduling her New York City Experience and what she wanted to achieve from her session.  She said “I really want to be an impudent girl, smoking a cigarette outside” and I said hell yeah! I think the world needs more women who are not afraid to say fuck societal standards, I am going to do what I want!  That is exactly the type of energy this babe brought to her session. This Russian Princess wanted to make her vodka and cigarettes

I Wasn’t Just A Big Girl – I Was THE Big Girl – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York, Boudoir

When I woke up this morning to the final edit of this blog in my email box, I knew there was no possible way I could wait to share this #LRPBoudieBeauty’s words with you.  They affected me too much, they hit home for me in such a real real way. Like this babe, despite dancing and doing martial arts as a teen, I was always the biggest of all of my friends.  I always felt like I wasn’t just a big girl, I was THE big girl, so when I read the words this babe shared, it struck a

I Am Serious About My Intentions – Troy | Albany | Saratoga Springs | New York, Boudoir

A big theme for me this year has been about my intentions.  So much of my life has been spent just trusting my gut in the moment and taking a leap of faith, but the real power I have discovered came to me when I spent the time to think about what I actually wanted for my life, for the business, for my team and for my family. One of the biggest goals I have had was the revision of our photography studio in downtown Troy, New York. We wanted to up the ante a bit.  The women that

What is Boudoir?

I have been spending alot of time this past week researching SEO, and as I do, it has caused me to put myself into the mind of our clients….alot.  I found it really interesting that multiples times in researching as soon as I typed Boudoir into google, this question popped up. “What is Boudoir?”  It took me a moment to process, because it is such a deep part of my life and identity that I couldn’t imagine there were women out there who didn’t know about this life changing experience.  At the same time as having this moment, I

Comfortable In Her Skin

Alot of the time you will read blogs in here about women who have to overcome issues with body love, but today I want to feature a babe who is comfortable in her own skin. Ya know it saddens me sometimes, we live in a world where we are constantly told that it is not ok to be ok with ourselves…that we need to change ourselves to be accepted. I would say that 90% of the work we do is in working with women who haven’t gotten to the point yet where they can look in the mirror and

You Do You – As Seen in Period Magazine

As we all know, Erin and I have a slight obsession with NYC sessions! There is just something about the energy of New York City that ignites a fire in an artists soul and allows for the most pure form of creation.  Perhaps it is the consistent pulse of energy, maybe it is the fact that you can be surrounded by thousands of people yet completely alone at the same time…whatever it is, the city is where my heart has always belonged. This last session is probably the most “me” creative work I have ever done.  Inspired by the

Do Something That Scares You

Yesterday, as I was packing up from our morning session, I received a call from a client with an upcoming session.  This is not the first, second, or even third time that I have received almost this identical call from a client.   They are freaking out about their upcoming session.  Wondering if they can go through with it, if they can really put themselves out there, if they will look as beautiful as “all of the women I see on your website and facebook.” My first response to them is that I would be interested what they do for a

2017 – A Year In Review

The countdown to the new year continues, and with that I bring you our 2017 year in review! This year has been a year of extreme change and growth. We moved from hosting sessions out of my apartment, to our beautiful Loft on River Street, we opened our lingerie store (The Shops at The Loft) and LRP has added on 3 new amazing women to the team: Kristen Bartlett (Our Brand Ambassador), Michaela Hindes (My photoshoot assistant and soon to be associate photographer) and Randi Poillon (Our Head of Product Developement for The Shops at the Loft and Wardrobe
