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!

YOUR WEBSITE DESERVES TO BE BEAUTIFUL. Who designed your website?! A question I receive from photographers and creatives several times per week.

It’s still hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that 2016 is so close to drawing to an end. Where did the time go? This year was extra special for me because I held three Evoke Workshops in my beloved PNW. Two in […]

Posing is something I am so passionate about and love teaching at my EVOKE WORKSHOPS. This is a huge area of focus at each event, I love sharing how to mix perfectly posed shots with fun candids and how to capture everything in-between. My flow posing system was born out of necessity, I needed to find a […]
