Crystal's Downtown Shreveport Outdoor Boudoir Session

So, there’s this man that hangs out in his thong, only, around Broadmoor on Youree Drive. Through learning about him, I learned that being in public in nothing but your undies is, apparently, perfectly legal.

Interviewing My Mom, My Hero: Badass Women Series

When we arrive, the rain has stopped, but a big rain cloud is moving in fast. So we hop and and make fast work of the photoshoot.

The ground is slippery mud, Mom's hair starts falling, there is still some drizzle, the sky is very gloomy, it's just laughable really. But we weren't giving up, and I am glad we didn't. The photos are amazing and will be cherished for a lifetime!

I hope you enjoy the interview and portraits half as much as I did, because she is truly a badass woman who has been through hell and back a few times and is wildly inspiring!

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.
