Forget What You Think You Know About Boudoir


Empowerment Portraiture

Forget everything you think you know about “boudoir” photography.

CRAVE is a transformational portrait experience that is customized specifically to each client to help them reconnect with their value and their worth.


This is NOT a traditional “boudoir” session!


    We have two locations to choose from!

    Washington Sessions

    With a studio location and cabin location in Bellingham, WA it’s easy for us serve clients from Seattle to Vancouver who are looking for a boudoir photographer in the PNW.

    Arizona Sessions

    We also serve our boudoir clients from Phoenix, AZ to Flagstaff, AZ and beyond. We have a great indoor studio that also backs the national forest for a mix of indoor/outdoor boudoir photos in Flagstaff, AZ.

    How it works…


    The Discovery

    Schedule your Discovery Session with Robin. This is a 60-90 minute planning consult. We will talk about you and dig a little deeper than surface level to learn more about why you want to have a CRAVE Experience and what you hope to get out of it. All of your questions will be answered during this time.



    We teamed up with an amazing fashion coach to help us in creating an exclusive to CRAVE and comprehensive fashion and shopping guide for your session. You will work with Robin, one on one, to define 4-6 different looks for your session using our exclusive fashion guide paired with your specific body type and fashion preference.


    Hair + Makeup

    Our hair and makeup team will be on-site the day of your session. They will address any of your questions and concerns right away. All hair product and makeup, including false eyelashes, are included. You just get to sit back and relax and enjoy being pampered for the next 90 minutes.


    The Shoot

    We know that you are most nervous about this part. So, this is where we put on your favorite music, craft you a custom cocktail, and dance around the studio laughing for the next 90 minutes all while capturing the most amazing photos of just how incredible you truly are! Don’t worry, there will be lots of direction given!

    The Design Session

    4 weeks after your session we will get together in person or over Zoom for a cinematic-style presentation of your final 40 photographs. You will pick out the photos you love the most, don’t be surprised if you love them all, that’s normal, and we will design your final artwork from the selection of your favorites!

    **Most clients pre-purchase their artwork before their session to take advantage of our collection discounts.


    Trying to plan your experience around when you want to have your finished artwork in-hand? Below is an example timeline.

    Planning Period

    This is the time when we do all of your consultations, fashion planning, and you shop for your outfits. We suggest a minimum of 4 weeks to allow you to enjoy the excitement of this phase.


    Shoot + Reveal

    On the day of your CRAVE Session we will schedule your Design Session and reveal. Robin spends a lot of thoughtful time making sure your final reveal is perfect! Plan on 3-4 weeks before seeing your finished photos.


    Delivered Artwork

    We pride ourself in our finished artwork. It needs to look and feel just as amazing as your photos. Our albums, for example, are made in Italy. You should expect the delivery period to take 4-6 weeks.



    Our studio has been thoughtfully designed and decorated to be the perfect backdrop to your CRAVE Session. We have multiple scenes that we move around and create during each session to make it fully unique. Check out this little sneak peek of our studio in Bellingham, WA.
