Why A FRee

Watch my heart-felt message on WHY it's so important to me that EVERY WOMAN experiences a shoot. 

To cement the idea that you fully love and accept your body exactly the way it is.

To say "thank you" to the body that has been there for you through it all. To lovingly celebrate it and commit to being nicer to her.

To tap into or back into sides of yourself you might have neglected or never explored. 

Because, why the hell not!? It's liberating, empowering and SO MUCH FUN!

Susan Delene

Hey girl, hey! Whether you've been considering boudoir for months, years, or you stumbled upon my website through magical forces that are NOW making you think of boudoir, I'm glad you're here. Can't wait to meet you! 

A few things about me: 

  • I started boudoir photography 20 years ago. Before it had a name. We just called it "fine art nudes" or "sexy photos" ;) 
  • My work has been in juried art shows, magazines, and billboards. But my favorite place is on your wall! Where you get to walk by it every day and give yourself a second look. And be like..."DAAAAMN Girl, you are one hot, badass bitch. Get it!"
  • I'm a mom to a cool little dude that loves music, dancing, and taking shit apart and recreating it in his own way. 
  • I am a published and international award-winning portrait photographer. 
  • I've had a camera in my hand since I was 15 and now I'm 40! When the F did that happen!? 
  • I wanted to be a pole dancer at 18 but my religious upbringing scared me away. I now have a dance pole in my studio and it's a blast! 

I love me, my life, and my pole. And it feels SO GOOD not to worry about what anyone thinks about that. I can't wait for you to experience the power of a libering photoshoot! I feel on top of the world everytime I shoot one! 

About the artist

As Seen In:

A baddie walks into the studio… oh, yay! It’s you!! 😍 Time to relax, get pampered and have fun! We’ll hand you a drink, stream your favorite music,  or we’ll play something for you!

Our studio space is private and located on the 5th floor so that you can feel completely comfortable in all areas of the space. Each member of our team are FEMALE SUPPORTERS of YOU.

After you’re dolled up, we'll guide you from head to toe with posing, angles, and lighting. You don't worry about a thing! We are professionals at capturing flattering, stunning shots that you'll have a blast taking!

What to expect

You’ll take a break from the studio. (We can direct you to one of the many cool places downtown to hang out!) Two hours later, we'll review your beautiful images, create your order, select art for an album, and choose which wall art makes you feel the most elated.

You’ll walk away feeling EMPOWERED, GORGEOUS, and BADASS. Captured timelessly through these photographs, these effects will be long-lasting as you look back on the incredible piece of art that you are. 

Artwork is delivered 4 weeks after your collection in paid in full. Payment plans are available. 

So you’re ready to create your dream shoot! Fill out a fun get-to-know-you questionnaire and then dive into our client-only Prep Guide. The guide is meant to encourage and inspire and it should answer many of your questions.

We’ll send you our inspirational Pinterest Boards to view and then you’ll create your own to visualize the mood you'd like for your shoot!

Based on your mood board, I'll let you know what to bring and what I'll provide so that we have everything we need for your epic shoot!





  • Are you you ready to say "F* it, let's do this! I agree with Morien. I should take a thousand naked pictures of myself, NOW!"

  • Are you ready to walk by an Epic image of yourself and be reminded that YOU did that? YOU invested in yourself and had professional editorial and fine art images commissioned of yourself. Because YOU are f*cking Epic.

  • Can you handle the extra boost of confidence you're going to have? You'll be make bolder moves. Saying no more often. Setting firmer boundries. Showing your kids what it's like to love yourself. And damn, that feels good.

  • Are you ready to give yourself a hug and tell yourself "I love you" before we start shooting? Are you willing to celebrate all that you are while dancing, laughing, and maybe crying at the reveal?

  • Are you willing to agree that you are worthy of celebrating and investing in?

If you answered yes to any of these, I would love to be your girl! 

For Me?


We got you, love! We want to make sure you feel 100% confident moving forward. If your question isn't answered here, send us a message and we'll get back to you within 24 hours, Monday - Friday.

What Days DO YOU shoot?

The shoots are M-F, 9am-5pm.
Most people take a vacation day for their celebratory shoot. (Playing hooky adds to the fun!!)
 We also offer a limited number of evening shoots in the winter as an upgrade.
On average, we only shoot 2 sessions per week. Each session is custom and we put a lot of time, energy and effort into each one!

What are your rates?

What Should I Wear?

It depends on what mood or style you are you going for. We’ll share our Inspirational Pinterest Boards with you and you’ll even make your own. Based on that, we’ll let you know what to bring and what we’ll provide so that we have everything we need for your epic shoot!
Some classic easy options:
Black bra & panty set
White tank top
Favorite pair of jeans
An oversized sweater or t-shirt
And one lingerie body suit or multi-piece set with garter & thigh-highs
We offer oversized white button-ups, sheer skirts and have a few robe options. It's typically a collaboration. 
Oh, and you can't forget nudes! 
If you want to do a personal branding or glamour look, we can talk that over and come up with the perfect thing! 

YES!! That's one of my main jobs. I'm here to make your life easy! I am your hype girl and your biggest fan in the boudoir studio!! I'll help you feel confident and guide you each step of the way. I’ll guide you head to toe with posing, angles and lighting for flattering, beautiful shots that you will have a blast taking! I'm also going to capture some beautiful moments in-between where you're more natural. It'll be a beaufiful mix. I’ve got you, friend!!

Will you help me with posing?

How much editing will you do?

I want YOU to look like YOU! I do general color correction, and I remove anything that is not permanent, like bruises and blemishes. I don't change the shape of your body. I use a very forgiving film-style grain edit and I know how to pose you and where to put the light for the most flattering image. As well as add a light skin softing effect.

I also love to use a painterly Fine Art edit for a few of your photos. It's a fun and beautiful look to employ for epic wall art.

Will my images be shared online?

I would love to share your images, you sexy thing!!! I will, of course, only share what you are comfortable with. We have a written release for such images, if you should choose to share. It’s completely up to you!
