San Francisco Bay Area Boudoir Photographer | Alanna

February 25, 2022

It’s been a while since I’ve had a blog post! I swear I have good reasons. It’s been a wild few months of significant changes professionally and personally.

In December, I moved my studio from Downtown Hayward into a new home-based space in Pleasanton, California. This new space has been an absolute dream to photograph clients in. Just a few minutes from downtown Pleasanton, the new studio space gives me many lighting and design possibilities. Getting rid of the traffic I was dealing with in my life was essential to me, so it now gives me even more time for the client care that I love providing.

One of the best things about the work that I do is the relationships that I can create with my clients to feel comfortable showing their mind, body, and soul to me to capture.

The experience I give my clients has never been just about the pictures: It’s about genuinely changing how these people see themselves. These changes in my living and studio situation have opened me up more to give even more 1-on-1 time with my clients before and after their sessions. I want them to leave their experience with me with not only beautiful images to look back on but a whole new self-concept of themselves.


I know the term “empowerment” is thrown around in marketing these days. But empowerment is genuinely what I desire to provide. To show my clients how the world sees them and reprogram their brains to see themselves in that same light. When we see ourselves as beautiful, strong, sexy, and worthy of anything we want, we shall bring amazing things into our lives.


Here are some images from one of the first sessions I photographed in the new space. I am so filled with inspiration here. The light is breathtaking! So grateful to my makeup artists, clients, and supportive people that helped me reach this goal.


So excited to see what the future holds.
