hi, I'm Lindsey
As women, we're constantly shown messaging about how less-than-perfect we are. It's everywhere - on the internet, on TV (I mean who really watches TV, we have Netflix, but you know what I mean!) and definitely across our social media. I know exactly how much that messaging can get into your head, and trick us into thinking we're not good enough, or not beautiful like her. And that's a huge part of why I offer Boudoir photography. I want to spend time, with you, rewriting the way that story goes in your head. My goal, in every Boudoir session I have, is to create a photo set that shows you as you are. Confident, gorgeous, and if you're feeling the vibes for your session: sexy as hell.
I'm Lindsey, and I'm so, so glad you're here. A little about me, I've recently moved here to Ottawa, and outside of being a photographer, I'm a dog-mom, yogi, food lover, and I'll take a comfy pair of leggings over jeans ANY day of the week. I watch too much Netflix, and I'm the kind of person who has to finish something once I've started, so yes, I begrudgingly watched Pretty Little Liars all the way through.
I got my Charlie just after my second year at university. He was only ten weeks old when I got him and for a while, it was rough. Being a student and training a dog was really hard, especially when he was such a terror... But now, he is an amazing and affectionate dog and I love him to bits!
My dog, Charlie
Yoga has been the most amazing thing for me mentally and physically. It can be the most peaceful and hardcore workout you'll do. It makes me feel so strong and empowered. It's seriously my favourite way to start my day!
This is Michael! He's my number one. He's my biggest supporter, my teddy bear, my shoulder to cry on, and way more than I could ever ask for.
My partner in crime
As a lifestyle photographer, my priority during a session is capturing those subtle, magical moments when you're in your element.
What this means for you, practically speaking, is that during out session we're going to be casual. We're going to get to know each other. We're going to get comfy - and while we're talking, and you're being your gorgeous self, I'm going to document... well, you. That way, you can look back on yourself, years from now.
If you're wondering what this means about posing, and what to do with your hands, don't freak out. Though I don't use traditional posing techniques that come to mind when you think of department store photography, I will tell you what to do, and how to move. There's no need to worry about feeling awkward or stiff, because we'll work that all out together during your session.
I want you to get comfy.
Lindsey is an absolute joy to work with. Her excitement and confidence immediately sets you at ease and boosts your own excitement and confidence. If you're feeling hesitant or unsure, she immediately coms up with a way to make you feel more comfortable. The photos turn out beautifully and the whole experience is wonderful from beginning to end. If there's a little voice telling you that maybe this isn't for you, don't listen to it. You'll feel amazing and love the results.
After my engagement, I knew I wanted to create something unique for my partner on our wedding day. Friends of mine raved about their boudoir sessions and told me I had to do one of my own. Unsure of what to expect, I leapt in with curiosity and was not disappointed. Working with Lindsey was a smooth and fun experience - everything from email communications to hair and makeup to the big reveal was well-facilitated. Lindsey not only guided me through different poses, but she also created an environment where I felt comfortable expressing myself. I left my session feeling liberated and more confident in my body. I am grateful for Lindsey's approach to her art and encourage anyone on the fence to jump right in. Be open, experiment and know you're in good hands!
From the 1st call to the Day, she kept me Informed of all the does and don'ts, the process, and what to expect. I was extremely nervous the day of my appointment. I walked into her studio and I felt right at home. The Makeup Artist did an incredible job on my makeup and hair. Then the session started... never ever in my life have I felt so beautiful, comfortable in my skin, so empowered.
The reveal was exceptional, the delivery of my photos were as promised.
I highly recommend Lindsey to ALL women for a Boudoir session at least once in your life. Ladies you won't be disappointed!
I was pretty nervous before starting my session, but Lindsey made me feel so relaxed and comfortable right away. As the shoot went on she knew exactly how to make me feel more confident in myself and I truly believe she is top notch! My experience ended up being really fun and I love how the photos turned out! It was amazing to see how Lindsey captured a beauty in myself that I am not familiar with and I think that everyone should book a session with Lindsey if they get a chance!! Thank you Lindsey!!
I couldn’t be happier about my Boudoir shoot with Lindsey M Photography. I was nervous but Lindsey made it fun and encouraged me to let loose and feel confident. Lindsey was professional every step of the way and I could see how much she loves what she does. Every stage from prepping days before to the reveal of my gorgeous photos was well communicated and went smoothly. I will be recommending Lindsey to all my friends and family because she truly is an artist.
Getting the opportunity to work with Lindsey was an absolute dream! Her Professionalism and calm demeanour really helps you get comfortable but her sense of humour and personality really is the icing on the cake. It’s hard to miss the knowledge and passion she has for photography and for making you see yourself from her perspective. It’s very empowering! She could tell that I was feeling a little insecure after a couple of photos she showed me what she had took and Instantaneously had a HUGE Confidence boost. I am completely stunned by the results of my shoot but more shocked by the confidence that shoot gave me day to day. I would 10/10 recommend Lindsey if you’re looking for some sexxxxxxy photos and serious confidence boost!
