Feeling Like a Girl

This shoot is a pretty epic one…not just because it is a stunning babe, or because the light is stunning…no it is epic because this is this #LRPBoudieBeauties 4th shoot with us.  You would never have ever imagined from her first shoot where she would barely walk out of the bathroom that we would end up here.

These are quickly becoming my favorite sessions for return clients, the Intimate Lifestyle Portraiture Sessions.  These sessions we only offer to return clients, because before we go to your house we want to know you, for you to know us and for there to be a deeper trust between us.  That trust is what allows such stunning vulnerability to shine through in the images.

I never in a million years thought when this woman walked into my studio over a year ago for the first time that she would end up becoming one of my best friends.  A person who I text or call multiple times a day every day.  Someone who would push me and inspire me to start my wellness journey.  Someone who would show up to my house to workout with me and tell me I can do this and to just believe in myself….kind of like I told her when she first came to me all that time ago.

It is kind of amazing how full circle life is!

On that note, this gorgeous woman has some words to share so be sure to read all the way through!


“I did my first shoot with Lindsay in January of 2015. Being a pharmacist and being a professional it’s very difficult to find that line of keeping things classy, sexy, conservative and professional all at the same time. My first shoot was one of the hardest things I have had to put myself through. I find myself to be a very confident and humble woman not to mention very active in sports but this, was nothing like I’ve ever experienced before.
I remember being so self conscious of how I looked, to the point of not being able to come out the bathroom. I kept thinking to myself why did I do this? How can I do this? What are other people going to think of me? It wasn’t until I sat down for my reveal session that totally blew me away. I couldn’t believe that was me. I couldn’t believe that I had the opportunity to do something so personal and intimate like this. This shoot went deeper than what’s just on the outside. Your vulnerability and emotions are completely exposed.
There is a different kind of self love experience that doing a boudoir photo shoot can give you that nothing else can. It gives you all of the feels so to speak. Working as a pharmacist it’s hard to feel sexy because our job is solely focused on the care of our patients. After my first shoot, I was determined to do another one and push myself even more. This time I wanted our gorgeous glam goddess Erin Goyer Bink to shoot with me. We showed strength, femininity, courage, women power, and brought the sexiness to that shoot. That was such an incredible experience and yet so different than my first session.
I think now I feel comfortable and confident enough to know that I can have that balance between working as a pharmacist and also play dress up and be sexy when I’m not at work. This last shoot took it to the most vulnerable state anyone could be in. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable and more confident in myself. There are so many people that have allowed me to get to this point that I couldn’t be more grateful for. My trainer Alexa Jaye who pushes me every day off I have to consistently make sure I stay on track with my fitness goals, Erin Goyer Bink who is not only one of the most beautiful people I know inside and out, but who I have learned so much from, and the amazing and most talented Lindsay Rae. Lindsay and pushed me and transformed me into being the best version of myself.
Standing there naked looking out the bedroom window of my home, the only thing going through my mind was how incredibly grateful I am to have gotten to this point in my life and how each and every person I have encountered along the way has played a huge part in getting me there. I look out the window with confidence and excitement to the endless possibilities that lie ahead.”
