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!

  I have a confession to make. There was a time when I didn’t run my business. It ran me. Literally. In those days, if someone would have asked me how I was balancing business and family, I would have laughed. Or cried. Probably both. But, things are different today. I run my business, not […]

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 […]

It’s only Wednesday, yet I feel that I’m on some kind of victory lap right now. You know, because I’m on track to successfully blog five days this week, for the second week in a row. This, my Internet Friends, is what I call winning. Blogging has always been a vital part of my business and for so long, […]

January 13, 2016

There was a time in my business when I was heading down a path leading to a place I thought I wanted to be.  A place that was pulling me further and further away from who I really was and went against everything that I stood for. Truth be told, while there was company happy to keep me there, I […]

If you missed my Periscope broadcast this morning for The Senior Scope, that’s a total bummer! But, you’re in luck because you can catch my Senior Scope Replay here! I shared my heart on a topic that is very near and dear to me: BRANDING. For those of you who have followed my journey over […]

October 29, 2015

It was in the middle of the crazy senior portrait season that I found myself craving a personal project. I could feel myself falling into a systematic pattern with my shoots and I knew that a personal project would shake things up and allow me to wipe the creative slate clean. We were heading over […]

  Sarah shared her review for RECKLESS on Goodreads and it absolutely made my day! There is no greater feeling in the world than having someone love something that you poured your heart and soul into. Sarah, thank you so, so much for your review and for loving Hailey & Jonah as much as I […]

January 15, 2015

It’s only been three months (to the day!) since I released Reckless, and while some of you might think I am still basking in the glow of FINALLY writing a novel, truth is, I have been hard at working writing my NEXT novel, Summer of Gray. All while working through my crazy/busy senior photography season. […]

Five years. I waited five years to finally see two of my favorite musicians perform live, Angus & Julia Stone. And let me tell you, it was so worth the wait! It was back in 2009 that I first heard this brother and sister duo- I was in search of a wedding song to use […]

“One of the best reads I’ve had in quite a while. Holli True touches on many things that we suffer through daily but one of the things I love most about Reckless is that while I was reading, I wasn’t home or at work. I wasn’t worrying about what I need to do or where […]

August 7, 2014

At the risk of receiving some hate mail from readers of RECKLESS, who are already asking for a release date for BREATHLESS, I am happy to announce that my next novel to be released is a stand-alone called SUMMER OF GRAY.  Writing Hailey & Jonah’s story is quite complex with so many layers, I wanted […]

July 22, 2014

Now that Reckless is complete and reviews are coming in from readers, there are a thrash of questions piling in, too. So, I figured I would compile the most commonly asked questions here for a fun little Q&A. If you have a question that isn’t addressed in the post, please feel free to add it […]

July 18, 2014

As far as I am concerned, July 15th should be a national holiday. Why, you ask? Oh, you  know, because Reckless releases on that day! And in my world, that’s kind of a big deal, since it’s a day that will forever change my life. Can I just officially declare the 15th as Reckless Day? Consider […]

June 26, 2014

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 […]
