Olesha is a founder, international boudoir photographer & educator, and published author with a Bachelor of Fine Art and a Master’s in Business Administration! She has over 10 years of experience as a professional photographer. Her purpose in life is to guide Black womxn in their journey of self-love, beauty, and pleasure. This is accomplished by sharing her own story of redefining antiquated beauty standards and centering pleasure. At the same time, offering a soft space for Black Womxn to define their version of sensuality and sexuality through workshops, retreats, collaborations, and boudoir experiences.
In 2019 she founded The Coterie Noir, formerly Boudoir For Black Womxn, an educational community for Black boudoir photographers around the globe. The Coterie Noir is now an inclusive educational boudoir community that is fundamentally changing how Black womxn’s essence is captured by the broader boudoir photography community. They host ongoing professional development, educational workshops, and retreats led by culturally competent educators on posing strategic marketing, embodiment, etc.
