This past weekend was a busy one for the True Crew, as I recruited my amazing hubby to shadow me during some shoots for a top secret project we have been working on. I know, I know, I keep hinting around at this elusive project, I’m just so, so excited about it, so I honestly can’t help it! Until I can finally spill the beans about it, I’ll be sharing little sneak peeks on Instagram- so be sure you follow @hollitrue. When the time comes for me toClick for more »
With the little break in the weather this weekend, we decided to take advantage of the sunshine and green light a top secret project we are currently working on. This means we are in dire need of three lovely female models who will be available to shoot tomorrow (Saturday, October 18th) in Eugene, Oregon.
This is a very special project that requires us to work with the following specific ages: 10, 15 & 18. Each model will be scheduled for a session time where theyClick for more »
Hey Internet Friends! I hope you are having a fabulous start to your Thursday! The sun is shining here in Oregon and looking outside my window, I am simply in awe of the beauty this time of year brings. It’s no secret, Fall is my favorite season and if you live in the Northwest, you know why. It’s absolutely glorious. And it got me thinking about our 1-on-1 Workshops we are now offering to photographers. Because, no joke, right now is the PERFECT time toClick for more »
Things have been a bit quiet here lately. I wish I had something really awesome to announce to explain my absence, however, at this point, mum’s the word. ;) Truth is, we have been working on something pretty amazing behind the scenes and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about it! And while I can’t divulge any of the details just yet, here’s what I can say: it’s going to be BIG! A formal announcement will be coming soon and IClick for more »
Five years. I waited five years to finally see two of my favorite musicians perform live, Angus & Julia Stone. And let me tell you, it was so worth the wait! It was back in 2009 that I first heard this brother and sister duo- I was in search of a wedding song to use for a slideshow I was working on and I came across a song sung by them entitled, “The Wedding Song”. No joke. From the moment I heard the harmonica, I was sucked in- and then Julia’sClick for more »
Every year, about this time, I get this crazy urge to start revamping my website and blog. It’s almost like clockwork. A fall thing. I can’t really explain why, it just sort of happens. At the most inconvenient time- when I’m slammed with edits, shoots and fall sports for my kiddos. ;) Can anyone out there feel my pain? I’m literally doing everything I can right now to not wipe my site out and start over. Somebody please stop me beforeClick for more »
Is it really true that October is basically here? Already? I mean, I’m pretty sure I blinked once and September managed to pass by under neath my very nose. Not that I’m complaining or anything. Truth is, I’ve been ready for Fall to get here for sometime now and wouldn’t you know it, we’ve had quite the Indian Summer here in the Northwest. Go figure. ;) I am so ready for the color of Autumn, hot apple cider, afternoons of baking pumpkinClick for more »
I decided to switch up today’s Threads post and focus on the Photographer instead of Seniors for a change. :) When I get ready for a photo shoot, it’s all about comfort. I need to be able to bend and move easily to get my shots, so I make sure to wear clothing that allows me to do so. Piecing together the right mix of casual and cool, this Be Free look will have you looking stylish and feeling fabulous. And isn’t that camera necklace killer!? Yes,Click for more »
Happy Monday! I hope you are all having a fabulous start to your week!

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 »
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 »
