Hi, I am Holly Sykes

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. 

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 over 5 years! I also work as a Director of HR for a large software company. 

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

We feel honoured to have her documenting our lives, and we wish her to continue spreading joy and amazement with her work, which is truly a work of art and love. We love you, Holly!

Holly...is incredible. I have scheduled all my photos with her exclusively because of her professionalism. I’m an extremely anxious person and she handles my newborns with such care and ease. 3 under 3, we’ve done family sessions, newborns, cake smashes, minis. All of her photos of us are incredible. Never disappoints. Never ceases to amaze me at how incredible she is at making us all look picture perfect...

Holly is an amazing photographer and a wonderful person. She has been doing our photos since my first daughter was born in 2018. She always give 110% to her work and goes above and beyond for her clients (feels more like a friend since my daughter adores her). We especially look forward to our Christmas photos every year it has become tradition for us. ♥️ We love you Holly.
