DC | Male Boudoir + Alternative Model Session | Raleigh, NC

While the rest of the state prepped for Hurricane Florence, Erin and I met up at the brew pub for beer + an epic shoot. Cue the cigars + blazers because this shoot was the perfect storm of grunge + class. I’ve been dreaming of doing a shoot like this one and am grateful for a sister who commits 110% to my vision. Because I mean there are perks of having a professional model as a sister but having her as my best friend tops it all.
