True Elements: Rep & Referral Program PRESALE

This may very well be the most anticipated release of True Elements to date.  Since hinting about the Rep & Referral Program Guide, I have received tons of emails and messages about it, which has been so incredible!  It was the kick in the rear I needed to get down to work and make this installment happen- so thank you so much to all of you for keeping me on track and inspired to bring it to life. I became a Senior Portrait Specialist pretty early in my career,Click for more »

I had the best of intentions. I really did. I sat down last week and I wrote out my blog calendar for the remainder of February and most of March, filling Monday-Friday with witty topics, sessions and announcements. And now, here it is Thursday, nine days later, and I only have two blog posts to show for it.  Fail… Try as I might, I seem to be struggling with maintaining my blog these days. Why? I really have no idea.  But it is very frustrating for me, as I LOVEClick for more »

Evoke Mentoring with Holli True | 1-on-1 Workshop

Turning a New Leaf | Workshop Announcement

When I began my journey with photography, it was with one goal in mind: to turn my passionate hobby into a full-fledged, thriving business.  This was my only focus.  I lived and breathed photography, craving the life of a full-time photographer.  Everything I did, every plan I put into action, every step I took was with that one destination in mind.  In 2010, it happened, I left my full-time job for good and my dream came true! But then, soon after, somethingClick for more »

So, I kinda fell off the face of the Earth last week.  In a nutshell, life got crazy and continued to compile and build and take over my brain and my life… I’m sure you’ve been there before.  Whenever that happens to me, the only way I can stay sane and in control is to simply unplug and recenter.  And so, that’s exactly what I did.  :)  I took an unexpected mental vacation.  Let me tell you, I am so happy I did.  Just having that couple of days offClick for more »

You may have already noticed, but I’ve been busy doing some early Spring cleaning, making some fun updates to my blog. After designing my Senior Rep Packets, I absolutely fell in LOVE with the end product and realized that I wanted to utilize what I created and bring it into my brand. I think that’s the cool thing about branding, the more time, thought and purpose you invest in it, the better and more authentic it becomes. Young & Free was born almostClick for more »

Yesterday I saw the sun for the first time in weeks. And I don’t mean that figuratively. Throughout most of January, we have been buried under a thick and gloomy fog bank here in Eugene- it’s anything but pretty. And I am convinced it has been sucking the life out of me, I’ve never felt more sluggish in all my life! Trust me, I’m generally not one to complain about Oregon and I know that there are many of you out there who are much colder than usClick for more »

I have a confession… I’m kinda obsessed with setting goals.  There.  I said it.  Yes, I am one of those people. The make-a-list-so-I-can-feel-the-sweet-vindication-of-crossing-each-item-off-kind-of-person.  Yeah… That’s me.  At the start of very single year, I sit down and create my ultimate list goals for the year.  And rather than tuck them away into a drawer, where they will be out of sight and out of mind, I hang my goals beside my desk so IClick for more »

The holidays are officially behind us and while I absolutely LOVE everything about them, I welcome the start of a New Year and all of the possibility it brings.  While this is a slow time of year for sessions, it’s a busy time of year for my business.  Reflecting on everything from 2013 (the beautiful and the not-so-pretty stuff), planning for 2014 (where I am, where I want to go, how I plan to get there), entertaining my big dreams (because I believe they canClick for more »
