Stars Align | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

It’s not the, Oh, I took sexy pictures. It’s the, I made the decision to do something that scares me. I made the decision to trust someone new and I made the decision to step outside of my comfort zone and confront my body in a way that I never have before. So I think that’s really what makes it as empowering as it is. It’s not just sexy pictures. It’s an entire experience that really comes together to help our clients take that next step into themselves. A step into who they want to be and who they see

A Survivor Story – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Today I hand the mic fully over to this client. Read below to hear her story! “Have you ever felt so beaten down, so useless so depressed, so unworthy, so defeated that it seems like there is no end in sight? Because this girl has. My story goes back to when I was young starting in middle school. I was not a popular girl in any sense of the word. I didn’t really have any friends, in fact I was teased almost every day. I used to get called a monkey, people would say “oh does the monkey want

A World In Need of Saving From Ourselves – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Message from a white girl: Where do I even begin? Maybe I will reintroduce myself first….  My name is Lindsay Rae, I am a 33 year old mom and the LR behind LRP. The world is falling apart around us, but is that “world” really just the shattering of the cloak we have all been blindly and unknowingly hiding under our entire lives? The one that keeps us from seeing the pain and sacrifice of others who don’t look like us? The one hidden from us in school that kept us blind to the real disturbingly painful and racist

An Entire Trip For a Photoshoot? – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Troy, NY is a little artistic hub in

A Shoot Story for the Books – Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Where do I even begin to tell the story of this day at Self Love Experience….. First of all it started out like a normal shoot until Amber threw a ringer at me… she told me “I want my shoot to be different from everyone else…I want to be the first for some new poses”  The first she was!  The first to use the blush wings, the first to use the new lighting, the first to do several poses on the golden ottoman… She was also the first client to have a major DEA drug bust happen in the

Finding “Me” in Myself – Troy | Albany | Saratoga Springs | New York – Boudoir

As someone who walks the walk and not just talks the talk I can agree wholeheartedly with what today’s #LRPBoudieBeauty has to say about her session helping her to find herself. I have about 18 pieces of Estate Art in my apartment (and alot more of myself as well as others in the studio!), a mix of just me, some with my boyfriend, some of my daughter, and some of us all together…but my largest 24×36 Estate Art is of just me and hangs in our living room.  Every time I look at my scars or see my messy

Female Business Owners – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

There is no joke that now is one of the hardest times in our generation’s history for small business owners, but what I am not seeing on the news is the incremental impact on FEMALE businesses. Not only are we fighting to keep our businesses alive but now we also have to be full time moms, full time homeschool teachers, chefs for 3+ meals a day, 24/7 playmates, cleaning crews, etc etc.  While yes there are men out there that step up (my man happens to be one of the best ever at taking over everything so I can
