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!

Over the past handful of weeks, I’ve received lots of emails and messages asking why I find value in blogging on a regular basis.

There is such a collective mix of locations and areas to choose from- brick walls, alleys, doorways, textured walls, tree-lined sidewalks, stairways and so much more.

While sitting in math class one afternoon of my Junior year of high school, one of my best friends, Jennifer, turned to me and blurted out, “My mom’s having a baby!” I’ll never forget that day, watching the natural mix of emotions that Jennifer went through as she realized she was going to become a big sister and that […]
