We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.  

-Katie Thurmes

I seek to capture emotive moments, using my passion and adaptability to showcase the sincere, fun-loving connections between family members. For me, photographs are not only memories but bonds which join families together across generations.

I provide both studio and on-location services and I am willing to travel to meet clients. With each session, I strive to capture the personalities of my clients and create lasting memories which transcend time. ​Your portrait session should be a unique and enjoyable experience. Working together, my goal is to create truly original works of art for your home which will be cherished for generations.

Session options

the photo session

Although the length of each session may vary, please allow 1-2 hours for individual and family sessions. My sessions are designed to allow enough time for children to take breaks, eat a snack, rest or whatever it takes to catch that special moment. However, I recommend that sessions be planned around naps and feeding schedules so children will be fresh and ready to go.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session, especially with young children. The extra time will allow them to adapt and feel more comfortable in their surroundings. When shooting outdoors, parks, beaches, historic and urban areas are all great locations for portrait sessions. If you do not have a location in mind when booking your session, I can make recommendations to ensure we choose the perfect spot for you.

If meeting on-location, please be mindful of weather conditions. If it is hot, you may want to bring a water bottle; cold, a jacket to keep warm between shots. Also, if you are planning to bring multiple outfits, remember that changing for on-location sessions may need to be done in the car. 

the viewing appointment

Approximately two weeks after your session, we will meet in the studio to view and choose your final pieces. These images will be individually processed and edited, and will be available for purchase in carefully curated collections.

​​​Prior to your scheduled portrait session, we will meet in person or over the phone for a pre-session consultation. During this time, we will discuss your session objectives and any posing or prop ideas you may have. I look forward to collaborating with you to create the perfect photographic art for your home.

A photographer residing in the Adirondack region of New York, Holly postponed college to raise her three children. She spent many happy years running from sports practices to concerts, documenting each memory with my camera. After her children flew the nest, she decided to return to school to pursue my passion in photography and the arts.

In 2014, she graduated from Fitchburg State University with several honors, including an award for academic excellence in communication and media arts, and selection for both the SUNY Adirondack and Fitchburg State juried student exhibitions.

When she's not behind the lens, Holly can be found running or enjoying the Adirondacks with her husband, Alan. She is also a self-professed cookie connoisseur who enjoys playing board games--the latest family craze is Bananagrams. 

My Style

Custom photography is a combination of photographic art, individual experience and client service. It provides for a personalized and professional experience where each detail is deliberately planned and captured. There is no denying that custom photography is more expensive. However, a personalized portrait session is an investment, the result of which provides custom art and heirloom quality images to be cherished for a lifetime.
