Reimagining the Photographic Experience
owner and Photographer
A Vision to Integrate Photography and Art.
Helping my father in his darkroom as a child in Russia led me first to an advanced art education. In the United States I earned a degree in Fine Arts that, complemented by Graphic and Digital Design instruction at New York City’s renowned PRATT Institute, gave me a rare multi-media perspective.
I learned the vast difference between shooting a picture and envisioning what every image can be.
Reimagining the Photographic Experience.
Over the years my passion for photography grew stronger and in 2013 I founded Zesty Orange Photography Studio. There were lots of photographers eager to sell, but none took the time to create an experience that integrated art and delivered photographic products that exceeded expectations. And no one offered help with the many details combining in a truly complete end-to-end process to capture your family’s story.
Art Direction to Achieve Superior Results.
I designed our dynamic studio to enhance the process. Professional consultation that creates true photographic art is only possible by guiding every step; hair, makeup, lighting, wardrobe, and staging. For me, the artistic process couldn’t be more personal, and you’ll see that difference in every photograph I take and in an approach that looks beyond transactions to relationships.
Think Beyond Click ‘n Shoot Photography.
As a mother, dissatisfaction with the kiosk photographers left me determined to offer not just an assembly line snapshot, but an affordable luxury experience. Safety is a top priority and I take great pride in my newborn safety certification, a studio like no other, and heirloom quality for everyone.
Sessions are family affairs, and from our coffee station to a play area for little ones, everyone is welcomed.
Maternity to Newborn to Special Milestones.
Every family is unique, but we all have the desire to capture timeless moments to enjoy today and share with future generations.
From maternity to newborns, 1st Birthday Cake Smash Celebrations, and the world of life’s milestones, all are artistically captured and preserved. For every session and for every client, I strive to capture what’s truly unique and timeless about you and your family.

Olesya went above and beyond the two times that I have scheduled sessions for my son, his newborn shoot and cake smash. Her personal touches and unique eye make for a one of a kind experience.
So glad we found her!
Olesya (owner and photographer) is an amazing artist! We had a family photo session. My family is an LGBTQ family and we have to always check before receiving or requesting services because some businesses may not want to work with us. Olesya did not think twice about it and make us feel welcome and like we were old friends.
I could not have asked for a better experience!
Olesya was so kind, welcoming and very creative. I was blown away with how my maternity pictures turned out. Highly recommend Zesty Orange Photography.
