Wash It Away | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Wash It Away | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

I like to explain our bodies to children by the example that our skin is like a bag that holds our organs and bones and will move and adjust as we use the bag and add and subtract from it and it all is natural and NORMAL. You can use a grocery bag as an example too and show how it moves as you adjust what is in it.

Head Held High | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir 

Head Held High | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir 

We exist, as a society, in a constant state of worrying about what other people think about us. We project our emotions onto others rather than reading their emotions for what they are. That’s how we get in our little emotional spirals. We assume what other people feel and what other people think rather than taking the time to empathize and actually try to feel how they feel.

It comes from within | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir 

It comes from within | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir 

It’s not like you just wake up one day and are like, “Oh, my god, I love myself. Hey,” in the most whiny voice ever that we see online. It’s, “No, today, I like myself a little bit more. Today, I looked in the mirror and I saw my eyes and not my acne. Today, I stood naked in front of the mirror for five whole minutes and didn’t cry.” I’m up to 15 minutes now that I can stand naked in front of the mirror. You want to talk about self-love? I’m a person with a business on self-love and I am still doing the work daily.

Her Confidence Grew | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

Her Confidence Grew | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

When you can learn to look in thee mirror and just see yourself without the words of your past, you can start to see your potential. And you can start to find the parts of yourself that you like. Miss V got her first taste of that during her session. As the session progressed, her confidence grew and she found a new way to really grab onto her self-love.

Do Something That Scares You | Troy | Saratoga Springs | Albany | New York – Boudoir

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.

Also, to stay covered up from head to toe and to look “presentable” at a moment’s notice.

It Is Not What They Call You, But What You Will Answer To

One of the beautiful, too seldom heard, voices of the transgender community shares her experience behind the camera with LRP Boudoir. Take a look as Kym experiences her first Boudoir photoshoot, mere weeks after the final phases of her transition. Her power, her confidence, her voice and her positivity offer enlightenment and guidance both for the trans community and to any one who has ever been bullied or has felt less than perfect. We encourage you to watch until the end, because the stories Kym shares from growing up are more than thought provoking, they are life changing.
