Why I decided to shoot boudoir in my home studio

For years I shot boudoir photo sessions in either a hotel room, air BnB apartment, in my clients’ homes, or even in a rented studio. All of these options were fine at that time. In fact, when I travel, I still shoot in Air BnBs or hotels. Hm, much less in hotels, to be honest. […]
