Mrs. N's Mental Health Journey // Virginia Beach Boudoir Photographer
Updated: May 31
"Bringing to Light the Beauty in Everyone" is our motto and mission statement and I’ve been thinking a lot about what that means lately, especially in light of a lot of mental health issues during this quarantine. I know for me personally, depression symptoms have been on the rise and some days are harder than others in self-isolation to remember it’s a matter of brain chemistry and not reality. The voices that want to tear us down can be louder than the ones reminding us we are more, that we are better and that we’re constantly on a journey of working on ourselves to combat our illnesses. This week we’re looking at Mrs. N’s session specifically through this lens of mental health awareness, because it was a big part of why she wanted to book a session with us and it’s one of Sarah McDaniel Studio’s prime focuses. I hope seeing the empowerment through her images came help serve as a reminder that no matter what we’re all dealing with or may be struggling through these hard times, we can bring that light of beauty out into the world from within ourselves even when it feels like the darkest of times.
So,what made you want to do a Session with Sarah McDaniel Studio?
A: I was eager to work with someone with such a mental health focus. Plus I love her work! This is something we love to hear! Our focus on mental health is one of the cornerstones of our Studio and being able to highlight the beauty of someone's unique own mental health journey to make them feel beautiful, strong and empowered is our goal for every client. You are so much stronger than you think, let us help you discover that strength from within.
What was one of your biggest fears?
A: Biggest fear? All of it lol. Truthfully....seeing with my own eyes that all the BS ive been told for years about my body was true.
You called it for what it really is, and it's exactly that: BS! What other people tell you about your body, the ridiculous standards and images in modern day media or the voices in your head are all WRONG. Being able to see yourself in a way you might not have thought possible is a powerful step in combating all of those preconceived thoughts. If we can help shine the light to help you realize the truth of your beauty and that all those others are BS we want to be able to do that for you!
What was your favorite part of your Session?
A: All of it. Being in the presence of Sarah and her team was like a mini vacation. You can't help but feel amazing and empowered. I think we could all use the idea of a mini vacation right about now, and we're so glad your experience helped you feel that way. We want nothing more than for you to feel amazing and empowered both during and after your shoot and let yourself feel pampered more than just any regular spa day! Our team strives to make every experience unique to you and uplift you with positivity and reassurance to help you realize your true potential for being the Beautiful Being you are.
What would you say to someone that is interested in booking a session with us?

You won't regret booking your first or next session with us, with our specific focus on mental health and positively addressing your personal and unique experiences we want you to not only find a way to express your strength but to make you feel beautiful while you do.
