Debunking the Myths of Boudoir Photography
One of the most meaningful gifts we can give ourselves is to see and appreciate the glorious creature we are – just as we are. One of the most meaningful gifts we can give our loved ones is an inside view of who we truly are, our essence. Photography is a powerful tool. Yet for some of us, a necessary evil. Great photography goes beyond marking a moment; great photography captures the essence, the very heart of a person.
Join us as we welcome Michelle Goldwood to Uplift for an educational workshop Debunking the Myths of Boudoir Photography. Michelle is a professional photographer and owner ofGoldwood Studios located in the Stutz Building in Indianapolis, IN.

* The setting that best suits you.
* Plus answering any and all questions you may have.
We’re excited to debunk the myths and raise awareness of this topic with you.

You will learn:
- What is mental health and why it’s important to maintain it.
- The steps in maintaining mental health.
- Symptoms indicating help is needed.
- How can we help ourselves.
Jane Yip is a neuroscience graduate from Australia with completed post-doctoral work at Eli Lilly-Indianapolis. She has published peer review articles on several brain disorders including depression, schizophrenia and autism. In addition, she is a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA).

Tracy McDaniel, Founder & CEO of Restored Inc., spoke about the reality of domestic sex trafficking, online safety and what YOU can do about it! The key word here is YOU – that means ALL OF US! For this event, we asked for donations of Target and Walmart gift cards that could be given to the girls to shop for items that they need. These girls come from environments where there is no power to choose. They have been stripped of all dignity. These gift cards give them the ability to make selections, purchase items they pick. It’s part of the restoration process and so very important.
