There are many women with children that have chosen the incredibly challenging task of juggling a photography business and motherhood. But this talented photographer has a successful photography business and….wait for it…..ten children. My hat goes off to this beautifully gifted artist, Lisa Holloway.

Lisa Holloway is an award winning, world renowned Las Vegas portrait photographer specializing in custom newborn, children, family, and high school seniors. Lisas ability to weave emotion and light into something magical something more than just a portrait, but a recording of who you are is second to none.

As the mother of 10 children, you’d better believe that Lisa has a very patient and easygoing nature which helps her connect with everyone she photographs. Her portraits are sharp, vibrant and simplistic with plenty of emotion from those youthful eyes she captures.

Lisa’s Favorite Gear:

Canon 5D Mark III
200mm 2.0L II
70-200mm 2.8L II

100mm macro

90mm TS-E

85mm 1.2L

50mm 1.2L

16-35mm 2.8L II

Natural light!

Lisa’s Advice for emerging photographers:

“Photography is definitely a journey. Never lose sight of what initially drew you to create your art or you can quickly lose your passion. Always stay true to yourself. Do not let current fads, trends and ‘in’ editing processes sway you from what you love. It is YOUR art, and yours alone. Learn to say no early and often. Only take on obligations that you truly want to do and that you have the time for. You must learn to value your time! All of that aside, take your camera out often and have fun! Try new things regularly, collaborate with other photographers, and don’t forget to photograph daily life. Children grow up fast. Best wishes to you on YOUR journey!”
