Do Something That Scares You | 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 this 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 themselves as, without anybody else telling them what that is.

I Am Powerful, Beautiful, Inspiring, Confident | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Alexander Den Heijer said, “When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.” I don’t even want you to be a flower, though. I want you to be a crow. As my friend Laura says, “Why be [anything else] you can be a crow? Crows get what they need and fly away.” 

Be a crow! Collect your shiny objects (and accomplishments), then fly away and build a nest in a place where you are accepted, loved and supported.

Comfortable In Your Own Skin | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I’ve had to learn to be okay with myself as I exist and that means being okay showing up exactly as I am. One of the biggest parts of what I stand for is to loudly proclaim for every person everywhere – you need to learn how to love yourself now. Not when you reach whatever goal you’ve set in your mind as your “ideal” – NOW. It’s ok for that love of self to fluctuate, but being able to exist without constantly criticizing yourself is a freedom I can’t even begin to explain.  Here’s what Miss A has

Breaking The Mold | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Society tells women that we have to fit into this tiny narrow minded mold of what is considered beautiful. That very tiny narrow minded mold doesn’t include life. We are meant to change, to evolve, to grow as our world changes around us – as it changes US. Our bodies are magical organisms that shift and adjust as we face trauma, pain, joy, wonder – you name it! Instead of criticizing that, why don’t we find ways to appreciate it? Here’s what Miss C has to say about her Self Love Experience: “For those who have never done any

It is my job to help the client unwrap that protection around themselves. It’s not my job to rip it away. It’s not my job to force you into doing something that makes you uncomfortable, but just gently give you a push outside of your comfort zone with a rope that you know I’m holding and here to pull you back if you need.  Here’s what Miss S has to say about her Self Love Experience: “16 and pregnant. My whole world stopped on a dime. Everything I thought my world would be like went out the window. You

But am I beautiful? | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I’m telling you, “It’s okay. You don’t have to love yourself today.” But today, you need to take a step towards what you’re going to do to like yourself tomorrow maybe just a little bit more. Here’s what Miss J has to say about her Self Love Experience: “I have a Hebrew tattoo on my thigh from my early 20’s- it says “beauty” and to me it was an attempt to remind myself, permanently, that I am beautiful. But I wasn’t swayed.  A few years later, I got another tattoo, a swan on my ankle. Another attempt at trying


Acceptance Comes From Within | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Over the past 6 years, more than 600 women have stripped down in front of my camera to rediscover their beauty. In crafting nearly 400,000 frames of these beautiful humans of all shapes, sizes, and colors, I’ve discovered firsthand just how deeply damaging our culture’s obsession with beauty propaganda is and how true it is across the board and across all ways of life. Sure, we can all head down to a doctor’s office and change what we don’t like seeing, but will that heal the way your brain interprets what it’s seeing? Here’s what Ms. N had to
