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

Pandemics and Giving Up Control – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Hope all of you have been holding up ok! I am starting to really understand and identify with caged animals who make a run for it as soon as the doors are opened. The 1 hour car rides I take daily have become my salvation throughout this entire Pandemic. Socially Distant. Music AS LOUD AS THE FUCK I WANT. No one on the roads. Windows down with fresh air.  My only sense of freedom and control during this lock-down. Control. That one word dictates so much for me.  After being dependent on a man in a marriage for 10 years

The World is Flipped Upside Down – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

There never was a time I thought that my little brother would become my light in the dark.  We are so different in so many ways….he collects guns and votes for Trump and I am a wildly independent feminist who believes in voting blue no matter who…but when the Apocalypse has arrived on earth…those differences just do NOT matter any more. (PS: “Apocalypse” (ἀποκάλυψις) is a Greek word meaning “revelation”, “an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling”.) I have found myself talking to my little brother and confiding in him

Nurses Are Societies Real Heroes – Saraotga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Ok well let’s start off with the obvious, this cornonavirus  hype and the strain it is putting on our healthcare workers….. Please be cautious as during any cold/flu season but a simple cough is not a reason to overwhelm already overwhelmed emergency room staffs. Also needless to say, I am a 1 woman business and a mother who cannot afford to get sick so please, if you are genuinely sick please let me know and I will work with you as best I can on the rescheduling. Now, I think it is fair to say that nearly 50% of

If My Body Fails, Does that Mean I Didn’t Fight – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

This is a post where what I have to say is irrelevant. Read below for our clients perspective. —– “An overwhelming feeling of awe and pride radiated from me as I stepped into into Lindsay’s Self Love Experience, not for myself and what I was about to do, but for her hard work, constant growth, incredible talent, and success. I was one of Lindsay’s first subjects at the start of her venture. Against a wall of tall windows in her apartment, she worked all of my angles with her single 50mm lens. Out of my comfort zone, Lindsay made

Moving Past Trauma – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

I have been holding onto this blog for a while now…unable to bring myself to write for it because I connected sooooo deeply to her trauma and how it mirrored my own childhood trauma. If you follow me on Instagram Stories (IG: @lindsayraephotography) you have seen alot of me posting about mental health acceptance and self preservation lately. That is because at 33 years old, on my birthday actually, I had a nightmare while visiting home back in Florida and finally asked my mom about this lifetime-fucked-up reoccurring nightmare I have had…. and she had me connect to an

A Line of Tshirts for Humans

“I feel like we should stop calling feminists ‘feminists‘ and just start calling people who aren’t feminist ‘sexist’ – and then everyone else is just human.” – Maisie Williams (aka Arya Stark from Game of Thrones) This line of shirts has been a dream for me.  I always wanted to have my own clothing line and now I can officially say that I do! Most of these shirts are based on tattoo’s on my body, a way to create a brand that was me without having people walking around with my name stamped all over them.  A few months ago I posted looking

Photographed “That way” – Troy | Saratoga Springs |Albany | New York – Boudoir

Who else is as excited as me for February 7th??  All of this babes wardrobe was from our Lingerie Shop and we have since added over 500 new pieces PLUS our new girl power t-shirt line. If you haven’t seen it yet CLICK HERE for a link to the event! Ok,  so now we need to get into the nitty gritty of this session. I think so many of us look into the lives of others as we see them through social media and just through being neighbors, fellow moms in the pick-up line, etc. but the truth is

Rise from the Ashes – Troy | New York | Albany | Saratoga Springs – Boudoir

Hello my wonderful #LRPBoudieBeauties!  It is a new year and with that I am getting back to blogging regularly.   If you have been following me on social media, then I am sure you have seen alot of MAJOR changes taking place at LRP!  Before we get into all of that I want to just let the vulnerability rain through my fingers while I type and share my story…or the parts of it I am confident enough to share publicly at this point. 2019 was an incredibly hard year for me.  I went through a divorce, and while I played
