I'm a photographer - artist, wife of handsome kiwi husband and mama of three little ones - William and Anna-Bella, Jayne who are making my life full of adventures and unexpected moments.

I'm love to capturing beautiful wedding adventures around New Zealand & overseas and also limited number of lifestyle documentary sessions in Auckland. I love to help others and share everything I know as a tutor and mentor, I'm Click Pro at Click & Co and author of an Ebook | Breakout at Click Photo School.

Welcome to browse through my personal everyday moments with kids, wild New Zealand landscapes and nature, self-portraits and much more!

They are messy, they are real and they are mine :)

Im a Mama, an artist, and professional award-winning photographer {see list of awards | publications below}.

I love to capture beauty in the details and harmony in the moments
— Olga Levien

My photography journey: I started to learn how to use the camera in manual mode over 6 years ago with point and shoot camera and been taking pictures mostly on my mobile phone, I met my future husband overseas in Europe and next thing - we moved to New Zealand - a beautiful country with wild nature! We had our babies one after another one {it was a plan! :) } and I had the opportunity to watch them grow and capture these beautiful and messy moments. I decided to follow my passion when my babies became a toddlers and I jumped into photography and business, found my mojo, an ability to be creative, feel artistic freedom and create a magic through my lens. 

Each person and mum needs this special time, do something for yourself, something that you love and that makes you happy! I'm so happy I have photography and creativity in my life! I would love to share my passion and everything I know with you!

x Warmly,
