Mrs. S Savoring Her Sensuality // Norfolk Boudoir Photographer

Updated: Apr 21, 2020

What does it mean to feel “sexy”? How is desirability defined through our sense of self as opposed to the preconceived notions and standards of what is attractive and as an objectification for someone else’s consumption? Confidence isn’t predetermined, it’s an organic and growing part of us that like all areas needs to be nurtured and cultivated. The confidence to be yourself, without excuse or apology or fear of judgment by others is the ultimate enlightenment. You can’t work on your relationships with others until you acknowledge the status of the relationship with yourself. Consider taken check marked on your permanent Facebook profile with yourself.


Always remembering to be kind to yourself and treating yourself to opportunities to grow in self-love and confidence in your appearance if it may not be something you currently love about yourself is very important. The person you are on the inside should always come first and foremost but you should love the person on the outside just as much.

So,what made you want to do a Session with Sarah McDaniel Studio?

A: I wanted to do a session because I have always felt self-conscious about myself and wanted to feel empowered about my body. When looking up places to have a boudoir shoot I came across Sarah and the amazing photos she has taken. I wanted to feel the way the women described on her site.


We sincerely hope your experience helped in your journey to feeling less self-conscious about yourself, more body positive and more confident in the beautiful being you are. We hope you feel like one of those women described on the website because you ARE. We hope that by sharing your experience with others that more women can feel just as empowered and included. You are beautiful, you are sexy and it's the energy from within that radiates to the rest of the outside world and we're lucky enough to capture a few of those moments on film.

What was one of your biggest fears?

A: My biggest fear was that I was going to feel awkward trying to pose sexy but Sarah and raven make you feel so comfortable.


Want to know the secret to sexy poses? How you feel. Sometimes being asked to pose in what can seem like unnatural positions for our limbs and muscles can seem a bit silly but seeing your images right away will help alleviate any of those fears. Being able to see your sensuality reflected throughout the shoot helps bolster your confidence and also puts you more at ease to be more relaxed and even adventurous for future shots. Comfortability is always our primary goal, physically, mentally and emotionally in the space we create for your shoot.
