Meet your Professional Boudoir Photographer!

Meet your photographer! Diandra Dellucci

It's been a hot minute since I last introduced myself. I've been a proud Charlestonian since '82, when I first landed here with my parent's compliments of the Navy, and we never looked back. I lived through one of the worst hurricanes to hit SC in history. In the first 30-minuets of Hurricane Hugo a huge oak tree split our house in half, and I spent the next several hours huddles in the back of the hallway with my mother riding out the storm.

I'm a mother to two breathtaking children who drive me crazy every day, but I wouldn't trade them for the world. I struggled to get pregnant early on. I had an ectopic pregnancy that was very traumatic and almost took my life. I took some time off to travel to Japan to visit my friends that were stationed there. While I was there, we got lost in the mountains looking for Budda and almost had to spend the night with the trees, TRUE STORY! I went to as many temples as I could and asked for a healthy baby. Their temples are so peaceful and serene. When I got back, I was pregnant with my son. I tell him that he looks like Buddha because that was the last temple I prayed at. We made it out of the mountains with 10 minutes left to see Budda.

An old vintage film photo of a softball catcher and cheerleader

I was quite the athlete growing up, participating in all sorts of sports: Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Softball, J.V. Basketball, Band & even Varsity Cheerleading but softball stole my heart. Of course, my knees now remind me of those glorious days. Especially when a big storm is on the way. I was the catcher for my high school's varsity team from sophomore, junior and senior year, playing EVERY single game, except for that hilarious incident where I unknowingly took 4 Benadryl and passed out during warm-ups. I had hives from my birth control and needed the itching to stop so I could focus on the game. The box said take 2 so I figured 4 should knock the hives out. It knocked ME out!!! Yes, darling, Benadryl apparently makes one oh-so-sleepy! I still chuckle at the memory of waking up in the back of my coach's truck while the game had ended (we lost). Life is full of surprises, isn't it?

Now, let's talk about my amazing partner, Jeff. I jokingly tell people we meet at a BDSM site, but I found him by accident. Well, he found me. He might not always fully embrace my whimsical ideas, but he supports me, nonetheless. My ultimate dream is to retire in the serene mountains, where I can wake up to the breathtaking Blue Ridge and savor my morning coffee on a cozy rocking chair. Bliss, indeed. I scroll Zillow in my free time to find my dream home and daydream about my "golden days".

Unbeknownst to many, my foray into the world of boudoir photography was purely accidental. After having my own session as a gift for Jeff, I discovered the profound healing power it holds. Covid had hit and all my weddings canceled, and I had nothing on my books. I was showing a few friends some of my own boudoir photos and they begged me to do pictures for them. I didn't even have studio yet so; we rented a hotel in Downtown Charleston and the rest is history! They showed a few of their friends and my phone started to ring. I took the money I had made and turned my art studio in what is now known as The Owlet Room. Every time I got a client, I would take all of the money I made and get a new piece for the studio. It took me the better part of 3 years, but I finally have it exactly how I want. When you step into my studio you will be transported to a different era.

Being able to do what I now love, empowering women to see and embrace their true beauty, is a fulfilling journey that brings me immense joy. And to top it all off, I got to homeschool my two children for over 3 years as well. Now that both kids are back in school, I can do what I love even more! That is great news for you!

A photo of a group white water rafting

Oh, and here's a juicy secret about me: I have an insatiable love for whitewater rafting. Can you believe I once braved a "tornado" and ended up covered in poison oak from the flying branches .5 and inch away from my girl bits!? Yes, poison oak next to my lady parts was NOT FUN! I also had to assist in saving a few ladies that had been ejected out of their raft and one had a severally broken hip from fighting a rock and loosing. Life's adventures can be quite prickly at times, don't you think? I even had the wild dream of becoming a raft guide when I was a teenager.
