Olga Levien

I'm a photographer - artist, wife of handsome kiwi husband and mama of two little ones - William and Anna-Bella, 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 an Ebook | Breakout with Click Photo School {coming soon}.

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 awards | publications below}.

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

My photography journey really exciting: I started to learn how to use the camera over 6 years ago in Russia while been using mostly my mobile phone, 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 found my mojo, an ability to be creative, leave the everyday routine, feel artistic freedom and create a magic through the lens. I also few years in a row capturing my everyday moments in 365 project that became "mostly 365". It pushed me to think outside the box and be creative.

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

x Warmly,
