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!

I met Tyler on the very first day that I started working at the Credit Union 7+ years ago.  He and I were hired at the same time, for the same department, along with a handful of other people.  I instantly liked him, as he reminded me so much of one of my cousin’s.  As […]
