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!

Senior Season also happens to be Workshop Season here in the PNW, simply because Fall and Winter typically means rain, wind and wintery mix. Of course, with how dry and hot Oregon has been in 2015, it’s hard to remember what rain even feels like anymore. ;) This year has been filled with various workshops- […]

Happy Monday! I hope you’re all soaking up as much of the summer sun as you possibly can, while it lasts! Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Jamie Dalton of BP4U Photography Resources, who asked if I was interested in being featured on their blog. Of course, I was absolutely honored and so excited […]

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 […]

Happy Friday!! I successfully managed to blog five days this week- which is a major triumph, if you ask me- especially considering all of the chaos the end of the school year has brought to our family! ;) With any luck, I’ll be able to continue this blogging trend and get back on track with having […]

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 […]

Happy Wednesday, Internet Friends! If you follow me on Facebook, you know I have been posting sneak peeks like a mad woman. Between all of the shoots with my AMAZING 2016 Senior Model Team and the number of 1-on-1 and Evoke Workshops I have been teaching, I am literally drowning in edits- which is truly […]

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 […]

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 […]

To say that I am blown away by my amazing team of Senior Models for the Class of 2016, is the understatement of the century. No joke. Yesterday was our last Spring campaign shoot for our amazing VIP Crew, consisting of 24 girls from all over the state of Oregon. If you follow us on […]

This is such a crazy time of year, it seems that as soon as Spring arrives, it is nothing but pure chaos! With summer just around the corner (YAY!), this means senior season is almost here- also known as my favorite time of year! If you’re a senior photographer, looking to maximize your locations by […]

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 […]

Social media is moving, growing and changing in ways that are more exciting than ever and the time to jump on board- is now. Facebook, at one time the social media standard, has become a bit of a pariah- at least in the eyes of most small business owners. With their ever-changing algorithms and their […]
