Oh hi there,

I'm Holly!


I'm the owner and artist behind Holly Sykes Photography.


I've always had a camera in my hand, trying to document all of life's moments before they are lost and forgotten. I got serious about photography after I had my children, as time seemed to move so much quicker and the moments so much more precious. 

You see, for years I struggled with loss and fertility challenges. I was told by some of the top fertility specialists that I likely would never be a mother. In my heart, I knew I was a mother.  

After 9 years of heartache, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy followed 2 years later by a healthy baby girl.  My children, Leif and Ayla are the little pieces of my heart that had been missing my whole life. I absolutely live for them.

I've now been doing family and newborn photography for almost 5 years! I also work as a Director of HR for a large software company. 


So yeah, you guessed it, I'm extremely busy. And for awhile I contemplated giving up my photography business but its really my passion. I love to create art and I squeal a bit with joy every time I see my images on my clients walls.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and your family!

I have many returning clients who I photograph year after year. I believe people come into your life for a reason, and I am so very grateful for my peeps!

Do not hesitate to email me with any questions!
