She walked in with a strong breeze of confidence, shoulders back, striking beautiful eyes, blonde hair with a shave on one side (such a rock star), in black
Dr. Martens boots, black skinny styled pants, and a soft pink colored blazer. I thought, “Dang woman, who are you?”
“Hi, I’m Lucy,” she said with a warm and welcoming smile as she reached out to shake my hand.
Within minutes we were off chatting like old friends. Lucy is a boudoir photographer, cheerleader for women empowerment, and entrepreneur. Her goal is simple: to help women feel empowered, bold and confident, to help you live the life you truly desire.
We discussed the topic of women and self-image challenges, and how boudoir photography can help women see themselves in a different light. Let’s
be real – if you’re a woman, then you’ve most likely experienced the negative thought train running through your head as you look in the mirror or when you peer at photos of yourself.
Lucy responded passionately,
“Let me photograph you and show you how great you are, how great your life really is.”
Stepping in front of a lens of any photographer can feel intimidating, and to step in front of a photographer in lingerie, um… that takes some serious bravery. Lucy makes it easier, because she’s all about helping people summon
their own inner confidence. “Go and be you, fully approach life with who you truly are.”
She’s now taking her cheerleading to a new level, with creating connection events. Lucy described it as events for being present, authentic, and simply put – connecting with one another. This sounds refreshing! She’s also consulting and coaching.
“Get to know yourself, and stand up for yourself, then get the life you want.”

Learning how to adult, what can I say, it’s not an easy task. There are the bills, work, responsibilities, relationships, and let’s not forget – personal development. If you haven’t watched Tracee Ellis Ross’s speech for Glamour (2017), then you must see it! Every woman needs to watch this speech about owning your own life, “My life is mine.”
Live your life for yourself, not because you’re expected to live a certain way. Your life is yours…
Your sensuality doesn’t belong to your husband, boyfriend, wife, girlfriend, or friends. It doesn’t belong to your parents, or your church, it belongs to you. You belong to you.
I wrote this poem about taking off the mask and discovering my own beauty, sensuality, and fear. And I created the visual artwork, too. Perhaps another step in taking off a mask I’ve been socialized to wear.
So, bring it, arrive, find it, show it, life is short beautiful friend… don’t hide. #liveauthentic

Love and hugs to you! Until next time, xo.
Life is too short, days go by, and we have dreams unrealized. This is my little dream… my pixel filled corner of the world where I’m sharing what’s in my heart, in my brain, and in my eyes. Mainly beautiful things – which includes much more than happiness (future post coming). Reflecting, pondering, wandering….
I hope you enjoy the art work I create and share with you.
Thank you for visiting!
Love and hugs to you,
