I am Cheryl and the photographer and owner of Belle Boudoir Studio. I have photographed over 2000 women since starting my photography career in 2005.
I am absolutely devoted to creating an amazing experience for you, improving my skills as an artist, and keeping our studio and equipment fresh to give you the best possible images.
The best part of my day is when I reveal the images I create to my clients. Hearing “is that me?!” and all the smiles, laughter, and tears that follow are why this is my calling: to make the world a better place — each happy, confident woman at a time.
I studied art in college and spent most of my time oil painting. I even took my studies abroad to Europe. Upon graduation, I purchased my first pro camera and began photographing everything from newborns to weddings to corporate events. It didn’t take very long though before I discovered that my gift and passion was boudoir. I had such a blast! I fell in love with capturing artistic beauty and producing images that changed the way women feel about themselves. I can’t imagine anything else I would rather do.
I live with my husband of 15 years, our sweet daughter, and two quirky dogs. I love the rain, stormy northwest beaches, backpacking, moments of reflection, and traveling at every opportunity.
I am often told that I must have the best job in the world and I couldn’t agree more.
