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

A Night at the Roxburry – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York, Boudoir

I have been waiting for a while to finally find the time to sit and blog this session.  I loved working with this amazing #LRPBoudiebeauty.  She was one of the very first boudoir sessions I shot way back in the day and I have loved watching the evolution of our work together! You know how everyone has those friends that they send all of their “internet things” to?  Ie: Fashion, inspiration, ideas, etc.  If you were to scroll my IG messages about 75% of them would be this babe and I just sending inspiration back and forth to each

Let Them Hate – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

I cannot even begin to tell you how often I hear stories from women who come into our studios that they are worried about haters.  Seriously.  Grown women, who still think it makes their lives more productive to hate on other grown women. It’s a thing….and I cannot stand it. What I struggle to understand is why as women we cannot tribe up and realize how much stronger we all are when we can support each other rather than tear each other down.  It gets even worse when a woman starts to embrace her own body and sexuality. Confidence is

Waiting Out The Winter – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Is anyone else suffering from a case of Seasonal Association Disorder?  Because damn is this freezing weather making me sad.  I usually can hack it until the first week of April with winter, but having a basically frozen car on April 17th is just not ok.  Not to mention the fact that, despite being pale skinned, I love the sun!  I miss the sun! I miss nature shoots, and sunshine and green grass and lakes…and basically everything this winter has stolen from us. As I can’t beat the cold, I decided I had no other option but to try

Life with Anxiety – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

When I received the words from this beautiful woman I don’t know if she had any clue the impact that they would have on me and the level to which I would be able to relate.  More and more in my adult life I am finding that having anxiety about abandonment and being left behind is a very very common thing.   For so many years I felt alone in my story.  All of my friends with their perfect little families, and I was the child of  a terrible and pretty violent divorce.  I always felt that I was alone.

I Belong to Myself – Saratoga Springs | Troy | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I have entered inthe the phase of my life where I am taking my self care alot more seriously.  I used to be the girl that only washed her face when she showered, and never really used moisturizers or anything that really adds up to a good self care routine.  At the ripe age of 31 I have finally decided that along with my massive workload and the mental growth it has brought me, that it is time to start paying a bit more attention to my vessel as well.  The past month has been dedicated to creating routines
