Fighting the Depression, Why I choose ME: Hampton Roads Boudoir Photographer
Updated: Apr 27
" A mental health disorder characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life."
Sound Familiar? It is so weird how a we can relate to this sentence. This "disorder." What this sentence does not go over is the daily weight that is placed on you. The lack of getting out of bed, the draining of energy that constantly reminds you that you are not enough. Depression is so much more than just a sentence and a script from the pharmacy, it is something that can control your life.
Why am I bringing this up? Because we all deal with this. We all deal with depression through out our life. Some might have an hormone in balance, some might have childhood trauma, or some might be dealing with adult trauma. Hey, we are not judging, but instead we are welcoming you. Welcoming you to learn how to get out of bed and kick depressions butt.
So why is a Boudoir Photographer talking about Depression? Well, because we should talk about Depression. The more we communicate about our issues in a healthy manner, the better the outcome will be. So listen when I tell you that you are safe at Sarah McDaniel Studio. We do not judge, but instead we listen and understand.
Boudoir is more than just talking a photo, it is something that allows us to rebirth into a beautiful form of ourselves. 99.99% of my clients that come in tell me that Boudoir Sessions are something that they have always wanted to do, but they were Afraid. They were intimidated because their Depression and Anxiety told them not to do it. Well, I am telling you that it is worth it. We will hype you up so high that the voice in your head will be a whisper.
We will tell that voice to be quiet, because it is your time to shine.
" Going in to this shoot I was really hesitant... I've been body conscious for years and go through extreme ups and downs of both liking and caring for my body. For the longest time I was in a low spot, again, and was hesitant about doing something like this for myself and also as a surprise for my partner as well. Sarah McDaniel is an amazing photographer who makes you feel great about yourself the entire time. Throughout the session Sarah would show me a photo here and there and I was set at ease because I know I'm an awkward person so I was worried about how the photos would turn out. "
" Sarah does her best to make her clients feel 100% comfortable and at ease during the shoots. Sarah showed me that I could really take power in my body and have some confidence again... with a lot of laughs along the way 😄 I can honestly say I haven't loved myself this way ever, nor have I liked my body this much in a really long time. I can look in a mirror again and just really feel happy with myself, boudoir or not, it just gave me an air of change and I've been on a high of loving myself since."
" From the hair and makeup by Danielle, I never thought I could love my self reflection so much... Danielle had me aweh struck because I never thought I could look the way she got me to look, it was amazing. Sarah also has a studio space with over at least 9 different settings via couch, bed, bathtub, ect to shoot on or with... each one with it's own kind of sensual appeal... so when it comes to variety of photos, there is nothing short of variety. The client's closet is phenomenal as well, there are so many options to choose from! I would highly recommend her to my friends and anyone interested in making future bookings. "
So... Do it. Get out of bed. Get out of the routine. Walk outside for just a little bit longer. Start today, and allow yourself to feel like YOURSELF AGAIN.
