Melissa's Completely Relatable Fight for Self Love | Shreveport, La Boudoir

Meet Melissa, she’s like you and me. She's normal and that's what makes her story incredible! Because we can all see ourselves in her. She's also incredible because she is fearlessly letting me tell her story. She wants to empower more women to love themselves. That's amazing.

Melissa is kindhearted, a nurse, a singer in her band Magnolia Mae (I know, it’s the perfect name right?!) with her husband John Garcia, maker of a beautiful and sweet boy, wearer of cute clothes, fun lover, and so many more amazing things. Getting to spend the day photographing her fun and happy spirit was a joy.

If you don’t mind taking a few minutes to answer these five questions, that would be amazing!

Chatting with Tracie: Leaving an Addict | Shreveport-Bossier Boudoir

*Trigger Warning. Abuse.*

Tracie grew up in Shreveport with amazing parents that loved her dearly. She got married and moved to Colorado and Texas for her husband's job with her children. Eventually, she divorced her first husband due to problems he was having that he would not seek help for.

Later on, she met her second husband who abused her in inconspicuous ways, through manipulation, like pushing her to workout so hard that she injured herself. She decided ended that marriage in May of 2016 when he became physically abusive one night. He escalated, picked her up, and threw her across their bedroom.
