Dae Afta Dark

Here are Dae’s own words describing what brought her to the Next Level Visuals Studio.


This past year I have spent time embracing all sides of myself good, bad, and ugly. I’ve stripped myself naked all in an attempt to rediscover me. One thing I’ve embraced is I am nothing if not Oshun Goddess divine sexual sensual feminine woman energy.

I’ve had a bucket list for at least a decade now. I rarely checked it though. If so it was only to add. Never to cross anything off. This year I decided no more. If something interested me, I’d pursue it. Regardless of whether I had someone to go with. No more waiting to live life, putting experiences on hold.

I would pursue passions, and hell some whims too. Take time to be quiet and still to get in touch with me. To listen, focus on, and pay attention to that small voice inside of me. It’s not so small anymore though honestly. So with that said one of the things I had on my list was to do a boudoir shoot.

I’ve always had a vision of a dope pic of me hanging above my “luvin bed”. I am inspired by art of all kind and what is a better piece of art than the human form? My body has gone thru all types of changes in these 38 years of mine. It’s overcame broken bones, countless scrapes and bruises, surgeries, a birth, you name it all of which should be celebrated.

Although it’s taken awhile I’ve learned to embrace and love all parts of me……..including the physical.
