the studio

We designed and built our gorgeous studio specifically with boudoir in mind. Everyone falls in love with the studio as soon as they walk in and begin to see all the possibilities we have here for whatever kind of imagery they have in mind. The main room looks like a contemporary home with abundant natural light, but almost instantly, even during the brightest time of day it can transform into the look of a hotel room at midnight. We have so many textures and colors throughout the studio to inspire you. Clients are often stunned by the way we can transform the space to their desires. And we’re always open to creating more options — just ask! Explore the space and see how it inspires you.


studio location

The studio is located at 1902 Park Blvd, in the Ivy Hill neighborhood of Oakland near Lake Merritt. Parking is usually easy, as is taking Lyft from the Lake Merritt BART station. Want to see the studio in person before your session? Absolutely! But by appointment only, please.

studio rentals

Yes! The studio is available for rental for your own use. Though obviously we designed it for gorgeous boudoir imagery, we also use it for other types of portraits, fashion, food, catalog, and more. Plus it’s even usable as a meeting place for small groups. See all the options here.

”My boudoir session with Oaktown Boudoir was amazing! I was so comfortable with Cheshire, and the vibe was really mellow. The studio is really cozy. I felt totally at ease from the moment I came into the studio. We collaborated on some different ideas for shots and we ended up with dozens of beautiful photos. I literally couldn’t be happier with the finished product!!” —Luisa
