All images by Jennifer Rozenbaum. Used with permission. PS: we’re working on a few boudoir pieces in time for WPPI. But we’re keeping them to a minimum.

Jen Rozenbaum was recently featured on creativeLive and makes her living as a boudoir photographer. She states that she embraces her femininity while allowing women to embrace their own. “By daring her clients to shed their clothes, they begin to shed their inhibitions.” is what her bio states. She’s also presenting this year at WPPI.

Jen is a woman that is seemingly very to the point; and that ethic is reflected in the specific ways that she works with clients.
