Olga is absolutely the best. She is so easy to work with that you always forget about camera and that you are posing and feel like you are hanging out with your friend! Cause she feels you, your family, your story. And the pics you get - they are always a story too. Your beautiful story! More...

We could not be happier with Olga and the photos she took! She worked with us for more than 2 hours and got back to us with 71 amazing photos! She was very easy to work with, very kind and patient. When we ordered a photo book through her, she gave us three enlargements for free! We will definitely be coming back to her for future photography needs. More...

Olga was professional and patient with us. She delivered high quality family photos that captured my two boys best moments. I particularly loved the unintentional moments she was able to capture as they were natural and true to life. We used few of the photos she took for our Christmas card last year and have gotten a lot of compliments. More...

Thinking about a family photo session, I was imagining those warm, intimate feelings every family shares. And how it's impossible to stage those emotions. That was the main reason I asked Olga be our photographer. She has that essential "great-photographer-talent" to see what's most important - how people feel at the moment -- and to catch it. Looking at the result of our 2-hour journey with Olga, I know that in 5, 10 or even 20 years I will fondly remember how happy and close we were with each other that day. And I think it's priceless.

My sister highly recommended Helga Photo to me when my family and I moved back to the Chicago area. Olga had taken my sister's family portraits and I loved them. Olga did a great job with our family photos. She was easy to work with, the kids loved her, and she was truly a nice person and very professional. Olga is very responsive before the photo shoot, during the photo shoot, and afterward. She delivered our photos in the timeframe promised and we loved them. We will definitely work with Olga every year for our photos. Thank you! More...

One of the most important things in photography is capturing a moment, weather it is happy, sad or any other emotion. Well, not every photographer can do that, but Olga has such gift. She can bring what's inside of you to the photograph. She did my maternity shoot, delivery of our baby, newborn pictures and many many more. She is the person that makes you feel comfortable in any setting. Our pictures are the best memories we could ever ask for and they are amazing. Olga is not just my friend, she is incredible professional, who truly loves what she does� More...

Olga really loves her job, she is very talented and creative. She knows how to organize the photo session and how to set everything up. She is very caring and patient with kids. And she's full of fresh ideas, too! I was on cloud nine when I got my photos. We spent wonderful time looking through the photos with our whole family. Thank you Olga for making us happy! More...

Thank you so much for catching those precious moments after the twins came home. You were so sweet and calm around them. It was great for you to come to our home, it was so easy! I love the photos and have shared them with friends & family. Thank you again. More...

Olga is not only very talented but is such a pleasure to work with!! Professional, patient, creative, fun and easy going! We had a lot of ideas for photos but Olga had even more suggestions plus wonderful props and did not rush us (our two week old daughter decided to feed back to back 3 times but Olga was nothing but understanding!!) The resulting photos were stunning! Overall I feel that Olga went above and beyond! Really look forward to working with her again! More...

We just moved to Chicago and were looking for a photographer for our son's birthday party. Olga was absolutely great to work with. She captured some gorgeous shots of the birthday boy and of the overall scene. Looking through the pics is like re-living the day. They're wonderful and capture the essence of our little celebration. I can't recommend Olga enough. More...

We just mover to Chicago in the beginning of Spring and we wanted to make a photo-book of my son's birth just as we did with our daughter two years ago. We did not know anyone who could photograph the delivery and the date was getting closer, he was due on the middle of December. I saw a post on FB mentioning Helga so I contacted her directly. She was really honest and told us that this would be her first time capturing a delivery and she always wanted to this. She seemed very passionate about it from the beginning. My husband and I saw her work and met her in person and connected immediately with her. She really inspired on us the trust we one would expect from someone you are planning to let into your live for photographing such an intimate moment. We are glad we decided to go with her and very grateful to her for accepting. It was difficult to tell this was her first time working with a birth, it seemed like she had done it all her life. She managed to work around all the restrictions from the Hospital and the Obstetrician and the result was well beyond our expectations to say the least. The story she managed to tell with her pictures is really inspiring, filled with love and full of emotion. My husband is a seasoned photographer and had nothing but complements when looking at her work from a technical standpoint. Having her in the delivery room felt just right. She was always unintrusive and stealth focusing on succeeding at capturing the decisive moments while observing the directions from the hospital. The fact that she is a mother give her the experience and knowledge to know what to look at and when to click. She knows what she is doing and really went the extra mile and brought us the only snack we had in hours. It really was a great experience having her photograph this once in a lifetime moment.

Olga is great to work with and was very patient with my 2-year old (and my husband) who are not excited about getting pictures taken! I highly recommend her and can't wait to schedule my next session with her. More...

We loved working with Olga for our family pictures. She was warm, kind, and patient with our one year old, helping us keep her happy and smiling. She had great ideas for where to take the pictures, and her vision showed in the results. We love the pictures she captured of our family, and will look forward to working with her again! More...
