I had a mentoring call with Olesya which was really exciting for me because I love her work. She was very thorough in the questions she asked me and gave me very specific advice about my business. I loved how she shared some information with me that I had not heard anywhere before and she gave me some actions to go work on straight away. All in this was worth way more than the amount I paid for the call.

The business side of photography was always so overwhelming to me. There are so many things you have to consider and need to do. Olesya knew all my concerns from the questionnaire she sent me prior to the meeting. She walked me through each step of the way and answered all my questions from setting up your business to editing and marketing. She was an open book. I appreciate her sharing all her knowledge and experience with me!! Also, Olesya is one of the kind and sweet people you will meet.

I came to Olesya because I wanted to gain inspiration and knowledge for my family sessions. She is so friendly, laid back and open to sharing her experiences as a family photographer. Her energy and love for families is certainly demonstrated through her work. I enjoyed shadowing her throughout a family session….it was so much fun! Olesya, thank you so much for allowing me to experience a session with you.

$1275 • 5-6 HOURS
Can be split with up to 3 people to shoot simultaneously. I will recruit and style models (we can work on that together if you would like) and we all conduct a 1.5hr session and shoot side by side. Everyone has opportunities to direct. The model family gets images from all of the participating photographers. We meet 1-2 hours before and 1-2 hour after the session to discuss.
Come to my existing family session

This option is more for shadowing me shooting as I will be doing most of the directing. However you will have opportunities to shoot behind me as well. We will also spend time to recap the session after the shoot. If you can shoot some behind the scenes camera photos and phone videos for me, I will give you a $50 discount on the fee.
Online or in-person mentorship
