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

"For more years than I care to admit, I have been the caretaker. I was constantly putting everyone else's needs before my own. Being a single mom, I had no time for myself. I had no personal life, working 60-70 hours a week to make ends meet, working side jobs to help out and for many years, I just handled it. I was the go-to person for my family, friends, and co-workers. If it was a problem that needed to be solved, I was the one who solved it. If you need someone to talk to, lean on, listen to you, I was that person. When my child started having emotional issues, I was the one who was there (of course) but when others said, "I'll be there too" and then didn't help, it was a devastating blow to my heart. For the past four years, I have lived in a constant state of fear and worry.

From this fear and worry, my own personal demons started to emerge. Fear of not being "good enough". Not being a good enough mother, daughter, sister, friend, co-worker. Of not being "enough" Not being pretty enough, thin enough, friendly enough. It was slowly breaking me down.

Before, I hid behind everything. I chose not be front and center. I allowed others to take advantage of me. I took no credit for what I did. Now, my confidence is higher. I'm proud of the way I look and feel. Having a session with Sarah McDaniel Studio allowed me to gain even more confidence in my looks and the way I feel about myself.

And then I met this person. This person chose me. This person loves me just the way I am. This person tells me every day how beautiful I am, how special I am, how much I mean to them."

What was one of your biggest fears?

"My biggest fear was that when I looked at the photos that were taken, I would see that the idea in my head of the way I looked was true. That I really was that ugly and big girl.

Listening to Sarah and Chelsea hype me up was a huge relief and confidence builder"
