Reckless | Cover Reveal & Pre-Sale | Holli True Author

I don’t think it is humanly possible to be more excited than I am right now! So much has transpired in such a short amount of time, I am still trying to wrap my head around all of it. First off, HELLO COVER! What?! Yes. This happened. Hailey & Jonah were brought to life- which was absolutely surreal for me. I wish I could explain how it felt, but I assure you, there are no words… So, what is Reckless all about? Well, it’s a love story. But it’sClick for more »

Young & Free Senior Portrait Photography by Holli True | Brenden | Class of 2014

Brenden | Young & Free Senior Pictures

I’m really switching things up today. I don’t typically post twice in one day AND I rarely have senior guy sessions to share- so this is pretty much awesome, all the way around! As most of you probably know, I specialize in high school senior portraits for girls. Because I am a specialist, it isn’t often that I get to work with senior guys. I often get asked by other photographers if I find it hard to photograph guys and my answer is a big, fat NO. AClick for more »

Senior Photography Workshop | August 2014

It’s official: the last of our group workshops are open to everyone- this includes people within my typical shooting area in Oregon! We used to have an area restriction, but as we wind down to the last of our group workshops, I’ve decided to open them up to anyone and everyone interested in attending. I hope to see you at our next workshop! For the record, we are doing away with group workshops and focusing on 1-on-1 workshops, going forward. August 5thClick for more »

Daily Fresh Blend Action Set by Bellevue Avenue | PRoduct Review by Holli True

Daily Fresh Blend Photoshop Actions by Bellevue Avenue | Product Review

DISCLAIMER: I was a product tester for these actions and I received a complimentary set of Daily Fresh Blend for review purposes.  I was NOT paid in any way to write this review. If you are familiar with my blog, or my work, you probably already know that I tend to be a little light on my Photoshop editing. It took me several years to figure out my style and now that I have, I try to keep my work consistent. My goal is to keep the natural aesthetic of my images whileClick for more »

Finish what you start | Holli True Author

Patience. Something I seem to be lacking these days. Which is kinda funny, because I have never really been an impatient person. That is until I delivered five copies of my recently written novel to my test readers. Enter the impatience. I am literally beside myself with anticipation and anxiety as I wait to receive feedback from everyone. Holy crap- it’s rough to wait! I’ve received feedback from two people, so far. And I can’t lie, I am so happyClick for more »

Meet Jonah | Holli True Author

Here he is! My Jonah Trabor male Muse, the one and only, Mister Paul Wesley. There weren’t a ton of guesses for him- however, there was a person on the FB page that guessed right away- and that made my day! From the very start, I have always seen Paul as Jonah.  I am a HUGE Vampire Diaries FanGirl, more than that- I absolutely love Stefan Salvatore- so you can imagine why I chose him. (PS- Can I just throw in that the Season 5 finale was insane! WTF?!) When youClick for more »

Evoke Mentorship | June Session

I was met with a lot of closed doors when I entered into the world of photography. It was a frustrating and deflating process and on more than one occasion, I considered calling it quits. I feared that I didn’t have what it was going to take to make it in the industry. And then I met someone who changed the course of my business and showed me it didn’t have to be that way. This person took the time to talk with me, guide me, encourage me. For the firstClick for more »


Something pretty major happened last Thursday- if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably have already heard, but just in case you don’t, this is for you- I WROTE MY NOVEL!! 11 days BEFORE my original goal, which also happens to be my Birthday. Needless to say, I have pretty much been on Cloud 9 ever since because this has been my dream since I was just a little girl. There are a ton of exciting things happening behind the scenes with Reckless (myClick for more »

June 2014 Photography Workshop | Holli True Workshops

This past weekend we wrapped the very first Holli True Workshop for 2014! And let me tell you, it was so much fun! I always get a little nervous about the weather here in Oregon, in the Spring. But we managed to stay dry and even had abundant sunshine for one of the shoots, so we totally lucked out! ;) Posing is a huge element to what I teach- but knowing angles and perspective isn’t the only element to a successful shot. There are several things to dial in,Click for more »

I am an Author

Immense joy. That’s the feeling that consumes my heart and soul when I talk about my life as an aspiring writer. Only, I don’t know that I like to refer to it as “aspiring” anymore. Because I am a writer. Plain and simple. I think a better definition would be: a writer who’s aspiring to have her novels read. Yeah. That sounds more like it. Yes, it is true that I have been pretty much consumed in my novel these days. You see, I kinda set aClick for more »

Meet Hailey | Holli True Author

Here she is! My Hailey Covington Muse, the one and only, Miss Lucy Hale. I absolutely love that some of you guessed her right away- either you already know how much I adore her, or else you pictured her based on the description. ;) Of course, I’m hoping for the latter. It’s been so much fun to write an entire character based off of Lucy, she’s helped me write Hailey in a way that she feels like a real person. There were key characteristics I had inClick for more »
