The Photographer

Crystal Wakeland 

   Hi! My name is Crystal and I'm just your average laid back, goofy type girl doing a job that truly makes me happy. I love coffee, plants and baths...so freaking much! Even though I can only have fake ones because I can't keep a plant alive to save my life. I am the owner of Wakeland Boudoir Studios. I'm a LEO wife, mother of 4 crazy kids ages from 2 -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. I now own my own studio in Arlington/Pantego Texas and have been specializing in boudoir and maternity boudoir for 7 years now. I have worked with all different women of all ages and sizes. I specialized in posing women according to their body type and have alternative posing with women with certain disabilities. This is why all my sessions are custom to each client.

 

  I love my kids, being a mom and getting the opportunity to help women feel empowered is so special because I feel it's easy to lose our true selves in our busy lives.  For me personally, being a boss, busy mom, wife and taking care of the house, 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 do/see sometimes! Which brings me to this...

Why I am a boudoir photographer: As women we give so much to our kids and our families 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!!! YOU are worth it and I'm here to remind you of that just in case you may have forgotten:) 

 

 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:)

 Album Company

All Female Team

It is very important to me that all my clients feel comfortable in EVERY step of their boudoir journey with me. This is why I order all my albums from and an all women, small business, that specialize in boudoir albums. 

What does that mean for you as a client?

1) No need to worry about who will see your images when going through large labs that produce like crazy. The process of these albums are all printed and handmade by women just like you and me. They will print, bind and package your images/album with the care and respect that it deserves. 

2) Since this company specializes in boudoir, the options are ENDLESS in the different designs for your album. From Italian leather, Vegan leathers, alligator print and even rainbow glitter if that's what you love! They have gorgeous custom gilding, acrylic cover display boxes and metallic crystal covers for your album! Fancy right? Wait till you see it in person.

3) This company also donates 7% of all its profits to the London Abused Women Center, which is an amazing agency that helps women and girls that have been abused, trafficked, prostituted or harassed. They give support and provide counseling for the women and girls that need help.
