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!

Wow, the past couple of weeks have been a total whirlwind! In January, I announced the first EVOKE RETREAT Senior Photography Workshop for 2018. Registration filled-up and it sold out quickly. (To everyone that registered for this event, I just want to send you a huge, heartfelt thank you!) I’ve poured my heart and soul […]

If you’re a regular blog reader, you know that I am on a mission to redefine what the senior portrait experience means for me and my clients. (If you want to read more about this, CLICK HERE.) If you’ve ever been through this process, you know that it isn’t something that happens over-night. It takes […]

I am convinced that “slow-season” is a nonexistent state-of-mind. It used to be that December would roll around, things would wind down and I would have until March to get things done. You know, the things I can’t possibly get done April-November. Also known as EVERYTHING. But, here we are at the end of February […]

Snow is currently falling outside my window. Not enough to really accumulate on the ground, but enough to make my snow-loving-heart swoon! Truth is, winter is VERY LATE arriving in Oregon this year. I was beginning to think it wasn’t going to show up at all. I’m like a little kid when it comes to […]

I am so excited to announce I am bringing back mentoring for photographers!  Whether you prefer to learn from home or want to travel to Oregon, you have options! Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of photographers! I’ve loved helping others grow their businesses and push through their struggles. I started my business eleven […]

Sessions in the winter are always limited here in Oregon, due to all of the rainfall we typically get. Rain equals mud, so shooting in parks and other natural locations becomes very tricky. Instead of battling the mud, I love to take it to the streets! Urban senior sessions are the perfect solution! Since all […]

Over the past few months, I’ve been hinting about some big changes in my business. A major undertaking was redefining the senior portrait experience for my clients. To be completely honest, I was in a creative rut. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to shake it. On the outside, things looked great. […]

  There are no words for how much I adore Dani. She travelled down to Eugene from Corvallis for her senior portrait session, with her best friend, IMANA. They opted to do their senior sessions at the same time, which made the day even more fun. (I’ll be sharing the shots of them together in […]

Working with Imana was incredible and exactly what I needed. Seriously. As winter approached and I photographed my last sessions of 2017, I found myself getting restless and impulsive. I was ready to shake things up. I wanted to try new things, explore new places, remove limitations in my business and simply rewrite what the […]
