Brooke | Class of 2014 | Eugene Senior Photographer

It’s a double blog post kind of day, I hope you guys don’t mind. I am determined to make some serious headway on getting sessions blogged from this year’s seniors. This time of year is always a little chaotic as we prepare to wrap up the year and move into the next one. I’m sure you can all relate and feel my pain. Please know I’m sending each of you some positive vibes, please feel free to do the same for me! ;) I am so excited to shareClick for more »

End of Year SALE | Holli True Workshops

To celebrate the beauty of 2013, we are offering $250 off your registration to one of our 2014 workshops!  Space is limited to just 8 attendees per event.  I have found that this is the magic number for Workshops.  Having a smaller group allows me more hands-on time with each of the attendees, I love that!  The shooting groups are also smaller, (2-3 photographers per group, maximum!) which results in more interaction with our lovely models and more images forClick for more »

Let’s Chat About: Inspiration & Motivation

You know that old saying, “Look before you leap”? Well, that’s what I’m doing. Looking ahead, trying to envision what 2014 will look like- the good, the bad and the space between. I know, it’s impossible to really forecast what *might* be, however, I am attempting to enter 2014 with wide, open eyes, refusing to leap with my eyes wide shut. Looking back at some of my old blog posts from last year, I had a great plan of simplifying my workClick for more »

Michaela | Class of 2014 | Portland Senior Portrait Photographer

The past few weeks have been such a blur with Thanksgiving, family gatherings, Christmas preparation, life and business. Not to mention, the crazy winter storm that took over our town 5 days ago- the snow is still here, as we haven’t been above freezing temperatures in over a week. For some of you, I know this is the norm this time of year, but we live in a valley where we rarely get snow, rain is our forte. ;) This isn’t me complaining, don’t get meClick for more »

My head and my heart…

In just twelve short months, I have learned a lot.  About life, about people, about business and about me.  I’ve had a bit of an awakening and so many things have been exposed in perfect clarity.  If you are a long time follower, you know that inspiration has always played a central role in my business.  Much like Young & Free, Be Inspired is simply who I am.  Yet, lately, I have been feeling uninspired by some of my choices and experiences. My head and myClick for more »

Lindsey | Class of 2014 | Oregon Senior Photographer

Needless to say, I am so excited announce the projects I have been working on behind the scenes! 2014 is sure to be the best year. Ever. I recently met up with Lindsey, who drove up from Coos Bay, for her senior session inClick for more »
