Let’s Chat About: Connecting the Branding Dots

My journey with photography began with a camera and a dream. There were so many things I didn’t know about- specializing, branding, marketing, business… My mind was being pulled in a million directions, as was my photography. I had no idea what I was doing, I simply did whatever I was called to each day, sometimes loving the projects I was hired for, sometimes wishing I’d kindly declined. These were the learning years of my business, the vital years. The yearsClick for more »

The Senior Portrait Experience with Holli True

I learned early on in my photography business that I was drawn to working with teen girls. There was just something about them that inspired me and my photography. The energy and excitement they had for their senior sessions was off the charts and it affected my energy and excitement, too- in great ways. In the beginning, for me, choosing to specialize in senior portraits for girls was all about the fact that I simply LOVED working with that specific demographic. ButClick for more »

Chase | Senior Portrait Session

This August will go on record as the busiest month EVER for Holli True Photography! And with four more days to go and two senior sessions and a wedding, it’s only about to get busier. It’s been chaotic, but trust me, it’s the good kind of chaos! ;) I couldn’t be more grateful for the incredible senior clients I have had the honor of working with!

The Essentials: 1-on-1 Workshop with Holli True

Inspiration takes shape in many forms, evoking something from deep within. It can awaken a side of you that you never knew existed and motivate you in ways you never dreamed possible. I know this firsthand because I was inspired by photography- and it blindsided me. Photography has been one of the greatest gifts in my life and I can’t imagine my world without it now.  I discovered early on that my heart was for teen girls. With this knowledge came understanding,Click for more »

Let’s Chat About: One location, endless possibilities

I am not a location-heavy shooter. I never really have been. Whether the location is sparse or lush, it doesn’t really matter to me. What surrounds my client during her session is simply background- something blurred in the distance, meant to be ignored. My focus is and generally always will be solely on my client- not the area we are shooting in. This is intentional.  Let me explain why… You might call me boring, and that’s okay. But I have a veryClick for more »

Oregon appears to be as bi-polar as ever these days! Yesterday I had a senior portrait session and it was 102 degrees- today it’s a breezy 66 degrees with rain, thunder and lighting. Um, what? Talk about drastic change! Needless to say, I am making the most of this rainy Tuesday to make some major headway into edits! So, YAY for that!! Fall is definitely on the way and I am thrilled to announce that I still have session times available! I am currently booking forClick for more »

Evoke | Online Workshop

.. YOU’RE INVITED .. Workshops are inspiring, fun and more importantly- they can do AMAZING things for your business! But traveling across the country, or to the neighboring state, isn’t always an option for everyone. I have heard from so many photographers out there who have told me that they wish they could attend one of my Oregon Workshops, but for one reason or another, they simply can’t make it happen. After tons of requests, I am so excited toClick for more »

Happy Friday! This blog post is getting posted much later than I initially anticipated, but such is life. This is a chaotic time of year and this week is no exception!

Senior Threads: One Dress, Three Looks

Senior sessions are in full swing and one of the most commonly asked questions I receive from my clients: “What should I wear?” My response: “Wear what makes you feel your absolute best!” Truth is, if you feel amazing, you will look amazing- and when it comes to senior pictures- anything goes! One of my favorite places to turn to when I need fashion inspiration is Polyvore! Last night, I stumbled upon this great inspiration board featuring aClick for more »

How is it even possible that the end of summer will be here before we know it? Living in Oregon, I honestly love every season and it’s always a little bittersweet when a season nears it’s end.  I’m pretty I feel this way every year about this time. ;) Though, there is no denying, Fall is- without question- my favorite season of all! If you’ve never experienced Fall in Oregon, you are definitely missing out because there’s nothing else quite likeClick for more »
