Erika T.

Calling her sessions “Body Love Experiences” may just sound like clever marketing, but I assure you, it is fact.

My session was the closest I’ve ever felt to being a celebrity. I showed up in lounge pants and a tank, with a bare face and floppy hair and was immediately made to feel like a queen. I was treated to a boozy cup of coffee and sparkling water and we laid out my outfits.

Then Erin put on some amazing music, had me hop up in her chair, and she got to work on my makeup and hair. I felt like an honest to goodness model. When I saw her gorgeous artistry on my face, I could hardly believe it. I looked like I’d stepped out of a magazine.

I slipped into my first outfit and Lindsay got me all set up on a beautiful sofa with a faux fur throw. It felt very Game of Thrones and I was loving every second.

Lindsay makes you feel like a rockstar. You feel sexy and confident and I wasn’t nervous for one second. She completely puts you at ease and coaches you during each pose. I could tell there were not going to be any “bad” picture of me, because she knows her shit so well, she was going to make sure I was radiant in every frame.

When we were done, I was sad to leave! It felt like the coolest girl party ever. Before I even saw my proofs I knew I needed to tell every woman about this.

As I type this my husband has no idea I’m about to pick up my art. I’ve managed to keep all of this a surprise for months, but in reality, I did it for me, not him. Yes, it will be a really fun surprise, but really this experience was completely for me.

Here’s what I would like to get across to you…you are worthy of this experience. You deserve to feel this amazing too.

As I’ve told women about this I have heard, “I’m too old.” “I’m overweight.” “I’m not sexy enough.” And so on. I hate to break it to you, but you are dead wrong.

I’m about to turn 37 and have a son who is almost 13. I have stretch marks. I have crows feet and laugh lines. I’m currently at my heaviest, non-pregnancy weight. I’m super curvy. I had a C-Section with my son so my lower stomach has never fully recovered. I’m short with short legs. I’m generally fairly awkward and not sexy.

But none of that mattered!

I have followed Lindsay’s work for awhile and one of the reasons I chose to work with her because she does have such a diverse clientele and everyone looks so stunning in their photos.

I look like a goddess in mine. I’ve shown some friends the proofs and they were blow away. A friend of mine even booked her own session after she saw my “teaser” pics.

There is never a “wrong” time to have a session like this. You don’t need to wait until you’ve lost 20 pounds, or until your kids are older, or until you are married, or some other arbitrary thing you are telling yourself. Decide you are perfect and worthy enough right now to capture yourself at this moment in time.

I cannot wait to keep doing this again at different points in my life. Yes I’ll have more wrinkles, and some grey hair, and all of that, but who cares? My body is amazing and carries me through life every day, so why not celebrate it?

It’s never too late to truly love your body.
