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!

Yes, friends, this […]

Snow senior pictures are absolutely breathtaking and seem to be popping up more and more lately. Living in the Willamette Valley, we aren’t blessed with snowfall very often- but when we got it two years ago, I celebrated with a beautiful senior session in the snow. Since it isn’t likely we’ll be seeing proof of winter on […]
