Get to know your Instructor:

"Hey there! I'm Olguta (Ol-gouda.. yup, like the cheese .. don't worry you're not the first to have had that initial thought)! I was born in Romania, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and then life (in the form of a 6'3 charming fella) brought me to San Diego back in 2005. I am married to a former Marine and a momma to two of the sweetest (and loud, goodness are they loud!) little boys ever - Jacob who is 5.5 and Logan who is 2.5. I'm a lover of coffee, Olive Garden (who doesn’t love those breadsticks!), sappy music, camping, pretty lighting, comedy shows and adventures!

Professionally, I've been behind the camera for about 8 years. I specialize in Fine Art Maternity Portraiture, and hope to one day shoot maternity exclusively but in the meantime I shoot a little of everything because I adore my clients and can't say no. I LOVE editing, and will spend hours on one image if need be. The endless possibilities, transformations and clients reaction (and often even my own!) to the "after" is so rewarding! I'm honored to be a part of such an amazing + educational platform and look forward to sharing what I know with you all!"
