Session Details


Before you decide that Olesya Uglova is the photographer for you please check the FAQs and read all the information below.

  • My sessions are relaxed and fun; I try to be as unobtrusive as possible. I do not have rules, nor expectations of the parents, nor the children.
  • I won’t ask your child to “say cheese” or to “stand by that flower bed”. I’ll capture their emotions as they play and you interact. A good portrait can be taken on a doorstep, on a walk, while playing with a dog or exploring the world around.
  • I prefer to capture children as they are.
  • I take pictures of children in the environment that is familiar to them. Usually it would be their home.
  • Clothes are very important for portraits. I can help you to choose ones that will work on that specific day. The key is color and simplicity. For babies and particularly for newborns bare skin and natural fabrics work best. Children love to be barefoot and I love shooting them like that!
  • During my photography sessions I use ambient light and don’t bring any additional intrusive studio equipment. I don’t use an external flash.
  • If you don’t want your photo session to take place at home then we can find a suitable location together, such as a local favorite park.
  • I am currently available for a select number of family, children, underwater and women’s commissions each month.
  • I’m based in Santa Cruz, CA most of the year. I’m usually traveling during summer time.
  • Please feel free to contact me as soon as you are ready to ensure your desired date is available.
  • I encourage you to tell me as much as you can about your family and your expectations from the photo shoot so I can see if they are the right fit.
