Hi I am Caroline. My good friends call me Olin. I’ve loved art and stories since I was a little girl drawing on the walls and listening to my great grandmother’s stories.
Oh, the stories my great grandma used to tell. Many of them revolved around the 60 (seriously!) family photo albums. I realized how important it was from a young age to have printed family photos and albums to celebrate family and life’s stories, big or small.
Art has also been everything to me. Replacing doodling on my mother’s walls in Indonesia (thanks, mom) with degrees in New Media and Design, you’ll find me frequently photographing the most happening weddings all over the world under my main wedding brand Milou and Olin Photography fun pet portraits under Pet Photos By Olin and beautiful boudoir photography for women under my boudoir brand Boudoir By Olin.
But when I’m home in California, I’m with my families. . . clients who, for a brief time, invite me into their perfect little clans so I can share their story through art.
I live in Sacramento with my own family, complete with our 2 kids, 3 dogs and a funny cat. The kids and dogs are frequently forced into modeling for me (thankfully, they all work for treats). Hikes with the family make the perfect photo opp's don't you think?
I capture a little bit of life in each photo, and telling stories through art is who I am and what I do. Sharing your happiness in my photos with the world is what I am after.
Frankly, I don’t know quite where I’d be without the work I do or the lovely clients I have.
My portrait work is all about my mood: light, fresh and inspired by kids, childhood, and the creative nature of kids and play. My style is modern, clean, and editorial, mixed with story-telling in portrait form, all with my personal minimal hand editing and retouching to my aesthetic and high standards. What I create is a visual vignette or story of your life that becomes a cherished piece of art.
Upon booking, you’ll receive plenty of information to prepare you for your shoot, including an outfit guide for the whole family. Donna is always happy to answer any questions you might have.
I look forward to creating a fun, authentic, visual legacy of your family for future generations to come.
