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!

When we started planning Haydn’s session and she requested having her senior pictures taken at SMITH ROCK, I was over the moon with excitement! Central Oregon is a place I travel to often, especially for senior sessions, but Smith Rock was a place I had never ventured out to. So, you can imagine my excitement […]

Have you heard the exciting news? I’ve created a Facebook Group for Senior Photographers! I don’t know about you, but working from home and spending lots of time by myself during the workday, I find myself craving connection. I think one of the toughest things about being a full-time photographer is how isolating it can […]

Yes, the title of this blog post is Historic Oregon Bridges and Gorgeous Senior Pictures. You might be asking yourself, ‘What in the world do these two things have to do with each other?’ Let me explain… My senior client, Yesenia, had very specific locations in mind and actually went location scouting with her mom […]

One of the things I love most about Eugene is all of the GORGEOUS natural parks we have available for senior pictures! If you haven’t been here before, you’re definitely missing out! Now that Spring has (finally!!) arrived in the PNW, all I want to do is get out and explore, create and shoot, shoot, […]

Whether you’re looking for tips on how to […]

There are fewer places in the Pacific Northwest more beautiful than Bend, Oregon. Breathtaking is a word that comes to mind. Gorgeous, incredible, amazing… Based on that stellar collection of words, you can easily understand why Bend is one of my favorite places to take senior pictures. I’m fortunate to have senior clients from Bend and […]

As I was prepping Natasha’s gorgeous pictures for her blog feature this morning, with the rain pouring relentlessly outside of my window, I found myself craving sunshine! Natasha’s senior session took place on a beautiful sunny evening in Eugene at a natural park. She’s one of my local clients who attends Sheldon High School. Natasha is […]

To add a little sunshine to this rainy, gloomy Wednesday, I am so excited to share Josie’s senior pictures on the blog today! Josie attends Crescent Valley High School in Corvallis but she decided to travel down to Eugene for her session. I knew from the moment I met her that we were going to have […]

To say I simply adored working with this genuine beauty would be the understatement of the century. To be completely honest, I absolutely LOVED photographing Jenna! And can I just say that I am obsessed with her freckles, gorgeous hair and incredible wardrobe?! I mean… there are no words. It’s pretty obvious that Jenna is a […]

Sometimes my clients have a hard time trying to narrow down the perfect location for their senior pictures. There are so many options to choose from- Urban, Park, Garden, Beach, Forest, Waterfall… The list goes on and on. And I totally get it! With so many beautiful places to explore in Oregon, it’s nearly impossible […]

If you ask most photographers what their biggest struggle is, they will likely have the same response: posing. This seems to be a common issue among photographers at all stages of their business, from beginner to established. Body Language is a Posing Video + PDF Bundle that goes step-by-step through the posing process. This isn’t […]

This so-called “slow season” has been anything but. I don’t know about you, but I feel busier than ever right now. There are a lot of fun, educational projects in the works (more details soon!) and we are currently planning for our Workshops happening this Spring! In April, we’ll be traveling over to Sunriver for […]

Living in Oregon, I am surrounded by natural beauty at every turn, from the Pacific Ocean to the snow-capped Cascade Mountains. I’ve shot in so many gorgeous places, but rarely have I had clients request to take their senior pictures at a waterfall. This has always baffled me. Oregon is LOADED with amazing waterfalls, many […]
