Lingerie as Fashion – Bondage Inspired

With the rising fame of 50 Shades, those of us outside of the kink community have been wanting to dip our vanilla toes into learning more about the world of bondage. One of the amazing things I have learned just from being friends with this amazing author, aside from how terrible 50 Shades is becasue it lacks consent completely, is that restraint really is the ultimate release…

I’ve Spent a Significant Part of My Adult Life Being Cruel

It has been a while since I have sat down to blog and I have a long list of blogs waiting to go up! It is the holiday season and with that we are working on our new collection for The Shops at The Loft.  Randi and I have amped up the fashion and editorial vibe of our new season to create a line we want to call our “Unbound Collection” We feel like alot of what this entire Self Love Experience is about, is the un-doing of negative thought patterns.  So much of what makes this experience as special as

Family Can Be Blunt – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Hi All!  Randi here and I am excited for my first blog takeover! I have been a part of LRP for a little over a year now, and have never been more inspired or felt more unity than I do sharing in the amazing stories that make up this incredible group of women. What I have grown to realize is that we all share similar experiences, feelings, insecurities and achievements, no matter what path we may walk. I met this particular woman about two years ago when i was lucky enough to help her prepare for her maternity shoot.

A Woman Should Never Give Up All Her Mysteries at One Time

Receiving this blog was exactly the strength I needed for tomorrow.  You see I have some pretty severe PTSD from my last surgery when Gaia, my now 5 year old daughter, was born.  I had a terrible birth experience and have avoided dealing with some pretty awful women’s health issues since her birth. It is meeting women like this #LRPBoudieBeauty that remind me what true strength is and feed me confidence through their grace to try and strive to be the same. Though its just a routine procedure, for me, the fear is real, because my past experience was real.

As a Good Christian Girl – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Read this one…don’t stop reading until the end. Then check out her gorgeous art! Girl has something to say and we need to listen: —- “I’m not sure where to start or exactly why I was filled with so much emotion during my reveal (Yes, I ugly cried) so I thought I would start with a quote that speaks to the depths of my soul…. “Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” ~unknown I remember the

Learning to Love My Body After PostPartum Depression – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Let’s get down and dirty and real here today.  Where are all my moms at?  Any woman who has given birth can probably understand alot of what me and today’s #LRPBoudieBeauty are talking about.  The post partum experience and the birthing experience as a whole is not always “The most beautiful thing ever” and “The best day of your life” In fact, the day my daughter was born was hands down the worst day of my life.  Now I will never tell her this because I don’t ever want her to think that it is her fault, but my birth

The Fear of Aging – Saratoga Springs | Albany | Troy | New York – Boudoir

Sometimes words escape us….and that is ok.  I always ask our babes to send me a few words about their experience and when I asked this incredible woman the same, she thought she struggled with words, but what really happened was she spoke from such a true and beautiful place of vulnerability. In my 20’s aging was never a thought in my mind…hell, I never thought I would live past 25 (hi anxiety) so now that I am 31, the concept of getting older has really started to impact my thoughts and decisions.  I see my face changing and
