Ep. 57 – Overcoming Negative Self-Talk with the Body Image Activist

Do you feel comfortable naked or in your own skin? I’m excited to introduce you to Lindsay Rae – an award winning photographer with a focus on overcoming negative body image. She’s a body image activist and founder of the The Self Love Experience, a boudoir photography experience that empowers women to find beauty in their inner and outer selves. On this episode, Lindsay Rae discusses her incredibly tough upbringing from living riches to rags to constantly being shamed into feeling she wasn’t enough. She tells her powerful story growing up with a family of body builders who focused on physical image and how she navigated her way toward acceptance. I’m honored to have her share her truth – and inspire us to work toward overcoming negative self-talk.
