hello

My name is Holli True and I am a High School Senior Portrait Photographer based in Eugene, Oregon.  I love nothing more than sharing my passion and heart for working with teen girls.  This is what inspired me to become an industry educator and why I created the Evoke Senior Photography Workshop!

I have a serious confession to make… I LOVE getting my past clients back in front of my camera! It’s so much fun to see them again, catch up on life and hear all about their college adventures. When ELLIE answered my model call for a recent EVOKE WORKSHOP, I was absolutely giddy! It just so […]

Today is a VERY exciting day because it’s been a long time coming! I am so thrilled to introduce BLOG FUNDAMENTALS online course designed especially for photographers. After years of teaching workshops and offering mentoring to photographers, blogging is a topic that has repeatedly come up time and time again. I knew that something needed to […]

When a client books their senior session for the Rose Garden, I’m not going to lie, I am giddy! Not only is the location gorgeous, lush and colorful, it’s also kind of like stepping into a dream. Like Dorothy arriving at Emerald City. From black and white to full-blown Technicolor. Talk about breathtaking! There is […]

Each year I bring on a team of amazing soon-to-be high school seniors for my Senior Model Team. This is a HUGE process which includes a few months of accepting applications, conducting interviews and curating the perfect team for my photography company. This year I invited 25 girls to be a part of my Senior […]

If you’re currently asking yourself, “What do guitars and ukuleles have to do with senior pictures?”, chances are, you’re not alone. In fact, before my senior portrait session with the lovely and talented, Reegan, I never would have put those three things together. However, after working with her, in my humble opinion, it’s a perfect […]

This gorgeous girl is no stranger to the blog, if you’ve been hanging around here for awhile, you probably recognize her. :) Haley is one of my amazing clients from a few years ago, who recently modeled at the EVOKE SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP! I always jump at the opportunity to get her back in front of […]

This past winter, I had the opportunity to photograph, Savannah, a Portland high school senior. She wanted urban-inspired senior pictures, which was so much fun! Winter weather can be totally unpredictable, especially in Oregon, but we totally lucked out and managed to avoid the rain. It did, however, begin to pour, soon after we wrapped […]

When we started planning Haydn’s session and she requested having her senior pictures taken at SMITH ROCK, I was over the moon with excitement! Central Oregon is a place I travel to often, especially for senior sessions, but Smith Rock was a place I had never ventured out to. So, you can imagine my excitement […]

Have you heard the exciting news? I’ve created a Facebook Group for Senior Photographers! I don’t know about you, but working from home and spending lots of time by myself during the workday, I find myself craving connection. I think one of the toughest things about being a full-time photographer is how isolating it can […]

Yes, the title of this blog post is Historic Oregon Bridges and Gorgeous Senior Pictures. You might be asking yourself, ‘What in the world do these two things have to do with each other?’ Let me explain… My senior client, Yesenia, had very specific locations in mind and actually went location scouting with her mom […]
