By mid-life, most women have experienced the full range of life with its many joys and challenges. Sometimes, the marks of life leave scars that require healing. Sometimes, the events of life motivate us to dream bigger. Either way, at Show Your Spark, we help women celebrate their journey with boudoir photography.
This week’s featured Spark Alumna did just that and so much more! Continue reading to learn about her experience in our studio through her own words.
Self-Care Helped Me Heal
I am someone who has been through a lot of challenging situations. Through each one, I learned about myself and healed in ways I never before thought possible. Those difficult situations revealed my strength and the importance of being healthy in my everyday life. Daily tapping into that inner strength prepares me for whatever might happen.
I developed that inner strength by learning to be proud of myself for the way I handled myself in those situations. Those challenges helped me become the person I am today. Learning self-care was the way I healed. Learning to love myself allowed me to come to Show Your Spark for a Spark Session.
Photography to Document Healing
I have wanted to do a Spark Session for years now. Lindsay’s work is beautiful celebrating and highlighting each person’s unique beauty. I wanted to document a time in my life when I was on the other side of my challenges.
Warmth Greeted Me
Leading up to the session, I was excited but nervous. I wanted to look like myself, using less makeup and natural hair styling. Thankfully, Michelle’s beauty philosophy to highlight my natural beauty perfectly achieved my vision.
Nervous about exposing my body in my daily life, I’m always trying to cover up and hide under loose clothes. For my session, Lindsay gave me complete choice in how much of my body I exposed. She also helped me choose the perfect pieces for me from her beautiful client closet. During the session, Lindsay’s warm personality helped me feel comfortable and free with the poses and the wardrobe choices.
An Upbeat Atmosphere
From the very first pose, I had fun during the entire Spark Session. Lindsay’s curated playlist, featuring all my favorite songs, created an upbeat, fun atmosphere. Lindsay made me feel like I was the most beautiful woman she’s ever photographed. I have no doubt that’s how every woman feels when they are with her. At the end of the session, I cried because I didn’t want the feeling to end.
I felt completely comfortable and safe with Lindsay from the beginning, which helped me let go and experience my session to the fullest. I am so proud of myself for saying yes to this experience.
