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!

One month down and eleven more to go for 2016! I can’t even believe how quickly January passed me by, I kinda feel like I blinked and the month was over. Does anyone else feel like this or is it only me? Regardless, February is here and I couldn’t be more excited! January was a […]

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 […]

It might be raining buckets here in Eugene today, but looking at Clarissa’s gorgeous senior pictures, I feel like I’m surrounded by nothing but sunshine! It’s only fitting that her session be featured on a gray day like this, given how bold and colorful her pictures are. You might recognize this beautiful girl, as she is one […]

Yesterday was the day of my MOHS Surgery to remove the Basal Cell Carcinoma (Skin Cancer) from the inner corner of my left eye. (Read my story here.) MOHS Surgery is done in stages, they remove a diagnosed portion of skin and send it off to the lab for testing to see where the cancer […]

Happy Monday, friends! I know I am a little late getting my post out today, for that, I am sorry. As I prep for my MOHS Surgery tomorrow, I have a to-do list that is easily a mile long loaded with things I would like to accomplish before then. For those of you who didn’t […]

I have to admit, all of the pictures from our summer and fall senior sessions I’ve been posting have me craving some serious warmth and sunshine- especially as I listen to the rain tap against my window. This time of year is always a little hard to get through, especially for a girl who likes to stay busy and […]

One of my favorite things about being a senior photographer is that I have the opportunity to work all over the state of Oregon, in various locations. As a state that borders the Pacific Ocean, beach sessions are something I am obsessed with! It’s a no-brainer why we offer beach sessions as an option to our […]

It’s officially time to announce our amazing 2017 Young & Free Senior Model Team for Holli True Photography! After spending countless hours reading through applications, conducting interviews and much consideration, we’ve narrowed our team down to a solid group of fourteen girls. We feel so fortunate that we have girls from all over the state […]

Happy Monday, friends! It’s a new week, which means I am back to the beginning of my pursuit to blog five days a week. I’ve had several of you message me, giving me kind words of encouragement, which I greatly appreciate! I’ve also had a few people jokingly tell me that I am absolutely crazy […]
