As a victim of Sexual Assault and Abuse I have always felt very self conscious of myself.  I have horrible communication skills from past trauma experiences.  I am 33 years old and have been through numerous traumatic events.  Being a victim and a SURVIVOR of sexual assault makes you feel like you have your beauty taken away, You feel like you don’t have control of things, you feel like you need permission to do anything that has to do with making yourself look and feel beautiful confident.  I scrolled through my Facebook newsfeed one day and saw a gorgeous boudoir picture and thought I could never do that.  I am not pretty enough, not confident enough, I do not have the will power to do that, I do not have the self-esteem, etc.  I thought about it more, I researched Lindsay and her work, and saw she worked with RAINN.org.  I thought, NO MORE, Sexual Assault wont define me.  It wont prohibit me, it wont stop me.  It WILL EMPOWER me.  I booked my appointment for a self love photo shoot and it was the best experience I ever had.  I felt confident, beautiful, empowered, my self-esteem went up.  It was almost as if this was a unique therapy session.  At the end I had a smile from ear to ear.  Lindsay makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera.  I thought for sure I was asking a million questions on how to put my foot, my arm, where to look, how to smile, etc. she never made me feel uncomfortable at all.   This experience will leave you with a whole different outlook on life, and most importantly a whole different outlook on yourself.   You will see yourself in ways that other people do, and have probably told you before, but you never really believed because of the abuse you faced.  A Self-Love photo shoot will not only make you feel and look beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well.  Nothing is as great as self-love.  xo
