BILLIE OLSON
Portraits Assistant

Why I love working at our Portraits studio
I enjoy working with our diverse variety of clients. Seeing past wedding clients’ love stories continue with new babies and family reunions, working with business professionals and event planners that are making a difference in the world, and introducing new families to our amazing Living Room Studios home. I consider it a great honor to create lasting memories that will be shared and passed on to generations to come.

What’s something people don’t know about me?
My top 5 pastimes are camping by the lake, playing my music a bit too loud, watching scary movies, hanging out with my fat cat Finn, and day-dreaming about what adventure to take next.

Describe your perfect day
Waking up with the sun to the sound of bird songs and frogs. Followed by a day of exploring new places with good friends. Ending with some stargazing while singing along to my favorite songs.

If you were a client for a day, what session would you choose?
I would love to do a destination anniversary session. It would be a fun way for me to bring together a few of my favorite things, travel, photography, Jeremy, my love, and inspiration from Andrew.

We’ll get acquainted when:
We will meet when you choose Living Room Studios Portraits. I’m available to answer any questions and help along the way. I will assist in setting up the details and vision of your photo coverage. In addition, I will assist you on your path in creating beautiful wall art and prints for your home, selecting digital collections, and fulfilling any special editing requests. I very much look forward to working with you and welcoming you into our Living Room Studios family.

Studio Assistant

Why I love working at our Portraits studio
I love working at our Portraits studio because the team is amazing! It is such a wonderful group of people who are all so passionate about this art and seeing the excitement that comes from the clients when they get to see their beautiful images. As people grow and change, these images allow us to remember some of the best people, places, and times throughout our lives. Andrew and this team’s ability to capture the pure joy and happiness in that moment is a gift that we get to be a part of everyday.

What’s something people don’t know about me?
I’m very close with my family. We all live 10 minutes from each other and get together for Sunday brunch every week.

Describe your perfect day
Traveling around a new location with my family with no whining or fighting from the kids (with four girls this can be rare) while enjoying incredible meals and fantastic views as we explore.

If you were a client for a day, what session would you choose?
I would choose the Life Event photography for a Family Reunion. My family gets together every summer in Ocean City, New Jersey, for a week-long family reunion. There are over fifty of us in attendance every year and it would be so incredible to have Andrew document our summer reunion at the beach. I would also love to have a family reunion captured by Andrew with my family in Minnesota; I think I have some planning to do…

We’ll get acquainted when…
When you inquire about a Portrait or Corporate session. I’ll be here to help get your session scheduled and answer any questions.
