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!

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 […]

I am so excited to introduce, Savannah, the first Class of 2019 senior session featured on the blog this year! She wanted to do her senior session at a lavender farm, so we met up in Portland, Oregon during the Lavender Festival. It was crazy hot and because we did most of her session in […]

I’ve been meaning to post the photos from the EVOKE WORKSHOP for awhile now, but summertime means a busy senior season! Needless to say, this time of year always gets a little crazy for my business and I tend to fall behind on my blog posts. So, I am so excited to finally get these […]

Say hello to this gorgeous blonde bombshell, Katie! She is one of my amazing 2019 Senior Models, so you’ll be seeing her face on the blog a lot in the future! Katie recently modeled for a full-day IN-PERSON MENTORING workshop with the lovely, GWEN SHOEMAKER. During Gwen’s 1-on-1 mentoring day, we covered a multitude of topics that […]

Evoke Workshop October 5-7, 2018  |  Eugene, Ore. The Evoke Workshop is an amazing event happening in Eugene, Oregon for senior photographers. Two intensive days loaded with content and hands-on teaching focused on every aspect of high school senior portrait photography.

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 […]

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 […]
