Why did you want to do a Session with Sarah McDaniel Studio?

"I needed to see myself, in a way that would give me my self-confidence back, help me see my real beauty inside and out--like my friends and family tell me I am. My body is amazing, just like me, and I'm so glad I can finally see it.

For a long time growing up, especially in high school and college, people who I thought were friends and guys who I thought might've actually cared about me, only cared about what who I was on the outside. I was made to feel less than worthy of love and friendship because I was more focused on my grades and my future rather than the latest clothes and makeup. I was mocked and made to feel awful like I could only get a boyfriend and have everything I wanted IF I was a size 2.

Now, I know that's not true but the younger me couldn't understand that. Nobody ever really made me feel beautiful and cherished until I met the love of my life. He loves every part of me--all my curves and my heart and mind. After my son was born, I bared the greatest gift in the stretch marks and folds that showed the last 9 months of growing a miracle. And yet...I found myself feeling vulnerable again like I wasn't beautiful anymore when my body didn't bounce back, when my clothes never fit the same. But when I started doing more for me and feeling like myself again, I wanted to capture the moments of real beauty, so I could never forget how amazing I am and how far I've come in my life."

What was one of your biggest fears?

"I was worried that I wouldn't look beautiful. I wanted to look and feel as beautiful as one of the models in the pictures of a magazine. I was worried my stretch marks, few extra pounds, and overall insecurity of going outside my comfort zone would make me not look good on camera.

Boy, was I wrong.

Sarah and Chelsea made me look and feel gorgeous in every shot."
