Welcome to Hella Boudie, your destination for personalized boudoir photography in Oakland. Embracing the essence of the female gaze, the studio redefines traditional boudoir with a focus on authenticity and empowerment. This space is for those who seek photos that make them feel confidently beautiful, without conforming to stereotypes. As a curvy female photographer, I understand the disconnect that can exist with conventional boudoir settings. That's why I specialize in creating a personalized experience where you define what "sexy" means—whether it's in modest attire or sultry sexy, the raw allure of natural beauty, or exploring a kinkier side of your unique style. I'm here to make your photo fantasies a reality. Get ready to empower and embrace your authentic self and create images that resonate with the love and appreciation you have for yourself. 

Love it

Your body loves you. 

Hey Babe

You redefine sexy with every glance, believing it's about confidence, authenticity, and celebrating your unique journey.

You effortlessly manifest your dreams, from career goals to personal growth, because you know your power.

You can't resist dancing when Stevie Nicks starts playing—your moves channel the energy of every song.

You incorporate lingerie into everyday outfits, layering delicate lace camisoles under blazers or pairing vintage silk robes with jeans and boots - Your style isn't dictated by trends but by what makes you feel empowered and authentic.

You're from the tech capital, but you cherish a good digital detox—embracing moments of unplugged serenity.

You're a connoisseur of self-care rituals, from hot yoga to moonlit meditations, nurturing your mind, body, and spirit.

You know the best local coffee spots in Oakland, San Francisco and Napa like the back of your hand, ensuring every journey is fueled by the perfect brew. (FYI  Proyecto Diaz is just around the corner from the studio)
