No Body Is Perfect ... Models Needed

Does this sound like you? 
"I'm fat." 
"I wish I could just lose those last 10 pounds."
"I'm ugly."
"I wish my face would stop breaking out."
"I hate my legs."
"I hate my arms." 
... the list of things we hate, wish we could change about ourselves or think about our own self-image is on-going and usually not very positive and anxiety can get the best of some of us at times. 
Myself included. Too often, from my own mouth, do I hear words similar to those above; I am on a journey to heal from the negative words that I hear come out of my mouth about my body, you know the ones when I say them, my husband looks at me like I've got 12 heads, because they just aren't true, but the psychological torture that we put ourselves through is very real and often times, unnecessary. 
If this sounds like you, please read on...

A few years ago, I began thinking about a project that I wanted to do, and am finally in a place where I can get it accomplished and prepare for a gallery show: 
"No Body Is Perfect"

Details: I am looking for volunteers to help me on a project of healing to include in a gallery show. It is all about the body.  Your body.  The part of you that you wish would just disappear.  Whether it is a literal or interpreted representation (ie, the mind), I want to capture it. This project is for women and men over the age of 18 only; images can be taken showing your face, or without, while the purpose of this is to complete a project, the context is completely up to you.  The photos will be displayed with a brief story about the person in the photos (names can be excluded if requested).
If you would like to participate, are willing to sign a release to have the photos printed and displayed at a gallery show, please contact me at, call or text 716-608-5539 to schedule your session.  I will begin shooting in May.  All participants will receive a printed copy of the photo chosen and story after the gallery show.  Participants will be able to help choose which photo is selected for the show, as well. 
Love starts with yourself, from there, you can go anywhere.

Owner Christine Pilarski is excited to announce that Lifetime Memories Photography celebrated their official grand opening on 4/13/19, 4/14/19 & 4/20/19. 

After many years of being an on-location or home studio, we are happy to announce that we finally have a studio to call our own!

You can find our building by the mural on the side (when coming from Bailey Ave.), painted by the amazing Vinny Alejandro of Urban Inspirations!

Our goal is to offer photographic services at an affordable price!  We know that everyone loves professional photos, but cannot always afford to break the bank just to get them, that's why we are excited to say that our prices start at $75, and we are currently offering a grand opening special of $25 off mini and half sessions and $50 off full sessions through the end of May.

You can book your session today by visiting our website A $25 non-refundable booking fee is required at the time of booking. You can also call our studio at (716) 608-5539 to schedule your session.
