Experience & Background

Holly is an experienced portrait photographer who has been specializing in modern fine art baby and child photography since 2006.  Her portfolio and client satisfaction are highly regarded.  When you book a session with Holly, you can be confident that the portraits you receive will be consistent with the images you see in her portfolio.  Satisfaction is guaranteed. However cliché that sounds, it’s true – her goal is to make your experience the best and give you images you will treasure.

Photography sessions take place on location – in her clients’ homes, local gardens, parks, downtown areas, and in Holly’s studio in the Franklin, TN area.  She also conducts sessions in Raleigh – Durham, NC during the warmer months.

Holly’s love for art and photography began at an early age.  As a child, she spent much time studying family photos and appreciating how they captured the way people and things had changed.  As a teenager, she received her first SLR film camera as a gift, beginning her journey in photography.

With almost 20 years experience working with children as a camp counselor and educator (BA & MA in education), and years of actively studying photography, Holly developed a style that captures a child’s innocence and sense of wonder.  Combining a love for photography and children, Holly Marie Photography was created in 2006.

Holly’s approach calls for the use of natural lighting; however, she is equipped and experienced with studio lighting if needed.  Her candid photos show the many facets of a child’s personality and capture a moment in time that will be treasured.  Her simplistic instinctive style is easily recognizable and she transforms plain everyday moments into works of art for the families she photographs.
