Confidence can be hard to come by. Life experiences and the opinion of others often prevent us from stepping into the fullness of ourselves.
Inspired by previous clients and supported by her husband, our next featured client took bold steps outside of her everyday life to channel her inner confidence and indulge in a day of pampering and self-care.
Desiring to help her daughter grow up feeling confident and embodied, she set aside nerves and fears to step in front of the camera and embrace her beauty and strength.
The Spark Experience provides our clients with a unique opportunity to rediscover their confidence, strength, and beauty through the art of boudoir photography.

I’m proud of my spirit
I’m a mom of two and a self-proclaimed awkward introverted-extrovert. I’ve always dealt with self-confidence issues. It wasn’t until I grew older that I learned to care less about what others thought, and more about how I felt. I give much credit to my husband who always pushes me to be my most confident self and to “just accept the compliment.” I’m proud of my body and all that it has helped me accomplish during my 35 years here. I’m proud of my spirit and my determination to be happy and find happy moments even in the darkest of times.
Confidence; For myself, my family, and my daughter
I honestly never thought I would do something like a boudoir photography session. I met Lindsay virtually through a fitness class and she invited me to the Show Your Spark Facebook group. I saw all these amazing women posting their beautiful pictures and their stories and felt so inspired to do it myself, for my husband, my son, and, especially, for my daughter. My goal is for her to grow up and feel confident and happy in her own body. Also, honestly, I wanted to be pampered and to have a day that was just for me, which is a rare occasion!
Channel my confidence
I was so nervous leading up to the sessions.! I brought tons of outfits because I didn’t know how I would feel or what I would want to wear. I immediately felt relaxed after Lindsay and Michelle made me feel so comfortable and pampered! My husband wrote me a note which brought me to tears (pre-makeup). He basically told me to channel my confidence and remember why I signed up. It helped so much.
My favorite moment during the session was when Lindsay showed me the first pictures she took. I literally thought, “Woah, that’s me?!” I decided to have fun with it and enjoy the experience.
Reminder of who I am
I love the picture of myself in the purple outfit on the bed and smiling. I just remember this moment because it was near the end of the session. I truly felt beautiful and confident and dare I say sexy! These are all things that a busy mom of littles doesn’t always experience. Just because I’m getting older and am now a mother doesn’t mean I can’t be these things!
Whenever I’m feeling low, or having that imposter syndrome as a fitness instructor, I look at these pictures and remember who I am and how strong I am.
Do it for yourself
I 1000% recommend Lindsay Hite’s Spark Experience to all my friends. My biggest piece of advice is to do it for yourself, not for anyone else. Don’t wait until you are at your “goal” weight, confidence level, etc. This will literally *spark* your confidence and make you feel so comfortable in your body. You will have these pictures to remind you how amazing you are.
