hey there...

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 Abby and her mom contacted me to book her senior session, I was so excited! Her family was traveling up from California for one week over summer, so we had a small window of opportunity to make it happen. Each year, Abby’s family takes over her grandpa’s lodge at Triangle Lake. Her family has […]

While planning Hannah’s senior portrait session this summer, she knew she wanted a natural and rustic location. She wanted tall grass, trees, flowers and the ability to take pictures her family’s restored vintage truck- which was amazing, I might add! Of course, I am kinda obsessed with all-things vintage, so you can imagine my excitement […]

Smith Rock is beautiful, but it pales in comparison to this gorgeous girl! Meet Trew, Class of 2018 high school senior, soon-to-be-graduate! Doesn’t she have the coolest name ever? Yeah, I think so, too! Though, I might be a little partial! I met Trew through FAITH, and I adored her instantly! She is not only […]

I have a love affair with Oregon. There, I said it. For anyone who knows me, they know that no truer words have ever been spoken. I love where I live. Like, really love this place I call home. The rivers, mountains, forests, trails, waterfalls, sand dunes and everything in-between. I am so proud and […]
