With her relaxed shooting style, Suzzi Richardson has spent more than 10 years with her eye behind the camera, coaxing sultry smiles and ebullient grins from even the shyest of subjects. Throughout the course of each private shoot, held within her 1,600-square-foot studio, Suzzi works to make clients feel secure so that they can confidently channel their inner sirens for boudoir shoots, get dolled up for flirty pinup sessions, or duct tape their shadow into a flattering pose during portrait shoots.
Before of many sessions, Suzzi styles hair and makeup and throws open the studio's wardrobe, allowing patrons to peruse a vast selection of clothing, sets, and props. Though her photographic forte rests largely in the realm of pinup and boudoir, Suzzi also brings her diverse talents to bear while capturing shots of weddings and children as well. Once shoots have come to a close, she sets to work retouching the images, erasing imperfections while working to ensure that each subject’s personality still shines through.
