beauty & innocence in your everyday life


I just wanted to let you know how amazing [this] guide is! So much more than I could have hoped. I’m enjoying it so very much…. Also really glad there’s a group where we can apply what we’re learning and be challenged…. I’m a pretty new photographer, and sometimes it can be a bit intimidating with all these amazing feeds. But your approach seems really friendly and encouraging.

Holly was quick to respond to questions…. She was also kind, patient, and respectful in her responses, which made this newbie feel comfortable and able to continue sharing. Her written materials were clearly written, and the example images they included added to my understanding of the concepts. I also found her editing videos very helpful. I definitely learned a lot from this course. Thanks!

I’m Holly Awwad. But my name isn’t who I am. I am a wife. I am a mother. However, before I was either of those, I was a photographer.

My style lies somewhere in a grey area between documentary and fine art photography. I love to sprinkle my work with creative shots and I’m addicted to freelensing. I love clean composition and rich colors. I also love using light in creative ways to shape my subjects and create a mood. My style doesn’t fit into a neatly defined box, but that’s okay because neither do I, and this is “MY” voice.
