The Team

The Photographer

Crystal Wakeland 

   Hi! My name is Crystal and I'm just your average laid back, goofy type girl, sitting in a tub over there, drinking coffee, letting another photographer take my picture. Haha I love coffee, plants and freaking much! Even though my plants must be fake because I can't keep a plant alive to save my life. I am the owner of Wakeland Boudoir Studios and Crystal Wakeland Photography. I'm a wife, mother of 4 crazy kids ages from 1 -17 years old and have 2 big fur babies. I love to travel, although it is so hard to find time these days with our busy family. I've always loved anything that has to do with art. Painting, drawings, photos, tattoos, you name it, I probably love it. I also use to work in surgery as a surgical tech and specialized in ENT and spine. Although I really loved it, the art part of my life that I loved so much was missing. So I now own my own studio in Arlington/Pantego Texas and specialize in boudoir, maternity boudoir and newborn photos!


   It really is everything that is closest to my heart. I love kids, being a mom and getting the opportunity to help women feel empowered because I feel it's easy to lose our true selves in our busy everyday lives.  For me personally, being a busy mom/wife, taking care of the house and just everyday life, it's easy to give all of yourself to everyone else and forget to self love sometimes. I'm a girl that hardly wears makeup, LOVES oversized sweatpants and t-shirts. But every now and then I want to feel pretty and sexy which is hard for me to see sometimes! That is why I shoot boudoir. As women we give so much and it's important to not forget that no matter our size, age or where we are in our life, it's our journey and we need to feel sexy and empowered walking it!!!  I would love to chat and and talk about YOU now. I want to know all about you and why you are considering a boudoir session!


Hair and Makeup Artist

Rachel Rainey

"Hi, ladies! My name is Rachel Rainey and I am the owner of Rainey Day Makeup Artistry, LLC. I specialize in bridal and boudoir makeup and am looking forward to meeting all of you through Crystal's wonderful photography business!

I have extensive experience with makeup application for all skin tones and textures, as well as hair. I would love to bring your vision to life and create a look that will make you feel beautiful, confident and ready to be in front of the camera!

A little about me- I am a huge travel bug! I'm always itching for an adventure, so feel free to chat with me about your favorite travel experiences while I glam you up!!! A random thing that people are surprised to learn is that I am a gifted writer and hope to be an author someday. I'm way better at expressing myself on pen and paper than with words (however I still consider myself a social butterfly)

   I am a huge animal lover, and my 90lb German Shepard, Milo, is my entire world! I will always look forward to seeing photos of your fur babies, as well during our appointment:)
