Olga is a fabulous photographer and she is so easy to work with! I have two young kids and they are impossible for me to capture in pictures, but somehow she is always able to get so many great shots of them. I always get comments from friends about how lovely the end result is, and have recommended her to many people.
Olga took absolutely stunning photos of our family. What a treat to have such beautiful memories as we are settling into our lives here in the SF Bay Area after an international move. Olga was very accommodating and even moved our shoot date when the fog on the original shoot date proved to be too much. Thanks Olga!
Olga is such a genuine, warm hearted, friendly and talented person who I am lucky to call friend. She has taken several photo shoots of our family; my son and his friends, my son and I and my whole family in a maternity shoot. I am so grateful for her to have captured our family at that specific stage as my baby was stillborn. Those pictures are so near and dear to my heart and something I treasure so much. Olga has a way of making you feel comfortable, relaxed and having a good time - during what should be a stressful time taking pictures. She is very trustworthy and prompt about getting the pictures back to you and goes above and beyond to please you! I would highly recommend Olga!
She is the absolute best. So relaxed, flexible and talented. I have four small kids and she made the chaos seem calm and captured my favorite people in the sweetest way. I will treasure these images forever. She will most definitely be our family photographer as long as we are in the Bay. Do yourself a favor and book!
We had grandparents in town after few years of Covid delay so I wanted to do a special photoshoot for the family. I fell in love with Olga's photos the moment I saw her work, but what I didn't expect was the level of professionalism. Weeks leading up to the photoshoot, we talked about everything from outfit coordination to picking a location. Olga was knowledgeable, patient, and very passionate about her work. She even came all the way to the South bay ahead of time to scout out a location I suggested. I would recommend Olga to anyone looking to capture memories for their families.
This review is long overdue! We had the pleasure of meeting Olya last Fall to get our holiday photos done. I was looking for someone super last minute and she was very quick to help me and was very responsive to any of my concerns and needs. I was about 25 weeks pregnant at the time, with 3 girls ages 3,5, and 7. Olya did an amazing job getting the girls to smile and have fun during the shoot. She was prepared and had bubbles for them to enjoy and relax. We had never been to Hippie Tree before but I really wanted to shoot there. She gave us pointers and tips on getting there safely and made sure we were prepared as well. The photos turned out beautifully and in a timely matter, especially given it was near the Thanksgiving holiday. Olya followed up with me a couple of months later after the birth of our son and was so gracious to send us a pizza meal, knowing our son was in the NICU. She didn't have to do that but she did and we are so lucky! She has a very genuine heart and loves what she does and it shows in her work! I highly recommend her for all your photography needs!
We loved our in-home session with Olya! From the start, she was very professional yet personable. She was super fast to respond to my questions and provided guidance on what kind of clothing to wear. During the shoot, she chatted with the kids and made them feel relaxed and happy in front of the camera. We stayed in one room, but she took shots from different angles and with different lens so we ended up with quite a variety of images. After the shoot, we received the retouched images very quickly! I've never seen such a fast turnaround time and could not be happier with the high-quality, beautiful images she produced. Thank you, Olya!
I worked with Olya on maternity and boudoir sessions and the results took my breath away! Knowing this was my last pregnancy, I wanted to capture this moment in time. Olya was highly communicative, prompt, friendly, and incredibly talented! Her photos truly capture the beauty of pregnancy and made me feel like a goddess. I will treasure these photos forever! I will be calling Olya again for more family photos once our little bundle of joy arrives. Olya is a natural talent and her creative energy will shine through on your photo memories to last a lifetime!
I did a maternity and newborn photo shoot with Olya and I’m so happy with the results! She is easy to work with, very friendly and made me feel super comfortable. She captured some beautiful moments - it was hard to choose the final photos, I liked so many of them! I highly recommend her for your family photos
