Evoke Education for Photographers with Holli True | Workshops & Mentoring for Senior Portrait Photographers

Young & Free with Hadley | 1-on-1 Photography Workshop

We’ve been a little (or a lot) workshop crazy here at the YF Headquarters. From 1-on-1 workshops to group events spanning from Oregon to Michigan. Needless to say, it has been non-stop fun and chaos- and I’ve been loving every single minute of it! ;) I’ve offered various educational opportunities to photographers since 2010, both individually through online mentoring and in-person for a 1-on-1 or in a group environment.

Young & Free with Adrienne | 1-on-1 Photography Workshop

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Chelsea Taylor, an amazing photographer from Kansas, who travelled up to Oregon for a 1-on-1 Workshop with me. I’ve offered 1-on-1 education opportunities for a few years now and I absolutely love them. It’s a unique teaching scenario, as it’s focused whole-heartedly on the individual attendee, which allows us to dig deep and tap into specific topics, catered around their needs. We spend the entireClick for more »

Summer break is just around the corner (literally in, like, two days!) and soon my quiet house will be filled with the sound of my kiddos voices and laughter. Our family absolutely LOVES summer and everything that it stands for. Lounging by the pool, extended weekends for camping trips to the beach and mountains, exploring our glorious state, warm summer nights by our fire pit and simple times together. Oh, and of course, Big Brother– because I wait ALL YEAR LONGClick for more »

2016 Senior Model: Ellie | Mountain View High School

Hello there, internet friends and happy Wednesday! I’m feeling pretty accomplished today, as I sit here and write my second blog post of the week. Blogging is and always has been one of my favorite tasks, yet, when things get crazy, it always seems to be the first thing I abandon. And I know I’m not the only photog out there with this problem- I’ve noticed a major decrease is blog posts over the past year. Some of my favorite blogs to visitClick for more »

Senior Pictures in the Rain | Brooklyn | Oregon Senior Photography

Rain. It was nothing but constant, soaking, freezing rain. All. Day. Long. Under normal circumstances, rescheduling would have been the obvious solution. The only option. But, as luck would have it, rescheduling wasn’t an option at all. Because Brooklyn, our senior client, had travelled to Eugene from Arizona, and the day of her shoot, was the ONLY day she had to make it happen. So, we did just that. We made it happen. You see, Brooklyn waited to do her seniorClick for more »

Periscope & Snapchat: innovative ways to market your photography business

Social media is moving, growing and changing in ways that are more exciting than ever and the time to jump on board- is now.

With their ever-changing algorithms and their pay to play mentality, unless you have a large marketing budget to spend on boosting every post you’d like eyeballs on, this marketing path is becoming increasinglyClick for more »

Campaign shoots for our Class of 2016 Senior Models are in full-swing, and let me tell you, these girls are blowing my mind! This past weekend we travelled over the mountain to one of our favorite places in Oregon, Bend, where I had two group shoots planned.
