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.
Join Holly as she shares how she uses light, composition and patient observation to capture the authentic moments of childhood. Learn how to look beyond the traditional snapshot and find the beauty and innocence in your everyday life. Explore combining genuine emotion with compositional elements and techniques to become a better storyteller. Holly shares her process to help you strengthen your voice as your family’s historian, as well as create artistic and beautiful captures of the true magic of childhood.
Ahhh, Fall. Oh how I love Thee! It is Holly’s absolute favorite season! The gorgeous colors, the cooler temperatures, and the cozy traditions have her swooning from the time she see’s the first leaf fall from the trees. But as a photographer, her favorite part of Autumn is the glorious, golden light!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Family, food and festive lights are-a-plenty. There is joy and wonder around every corner. And even the oldest soul can’t help but be swept away with the nostalgia of the season. In Holly’s chapter of the holiday collaboration, She’ll show you how to capture the details & traditions of the season to tell your family’s beautiful holiday story.
