MHP BLOG WARNING: Blink and You Might Miss Something

Life in the Fast Lane. At Millie Holloman Photography, the pace feels a lot like an exhilarating scooter ride: we zip, zag, zoom, and speed off in new directions faster than you can say "Green light!" Want to come along for the ride? Our blog will keep you up-to-date on our most recent photo shoots, our favorite finds, and our craziest shenanigans. Hold on tight. It's gonna be a fast ride!

Such a joy to meet these two for the perfect sunset at Wrightsville Beach. Ryan is away at college so Lauren took the opportunity to have images taken of the two of them while he was here visiting. I’m so glad she did!

Amanda + Brent  |  Becky + Renee  |  Bits & Pieces  |  Matt  |  Millie  |  Photographers  |  Shoots & Ladders


This year’s Shoots & Ladders holiday set is a new spin on an old set. We are bringing back our paper trees due to popular demand! Don’t worry, if you have been photographed in our paper tree set before, it will look a bit different with new props! It’s another set made entirely out of paper. Bundle up and head down to our studio, be sure to wear bright colors because our entire set is white!

This session is for families and kids of all ages. Attention parents: we are making your life even easier because just like previous years, this session fee also includes 25 Christmas Cards, which we will have in your hands, ready to address by December 9th. Don’t have kids? That’s okay! You can play, too! Just read below for details.

This set is only three days of shooting and it’s sure to fill VERY quickly (Christmas is always our busiest time for Shoots & Ladders and we sell out every year). So… book below right away!


$150 session fee includes a family photo and individual images of your children during a 20 minute mini session (up to 3 kids – $25 per additional child) + 25 5×7 Christmas Cards (complete with envelopes)

dates: November 11th, 15th, & 18th. Choose the time and date for your session when purchasing your ticket.

location: 15 S 2nd Street. Wilmington, NC (must have an appointment, no walk ins)

dress: Bright colors, scarves, mitten, hats, sweater… pull out your brightest and most colorful clothing because this set is ALL WHITE! Please don’t wear white.

We’ll present the images (4-6 proofs) to you online on Friday, November 20th. To get your cards back by December 9th we’ll need you to order these right away! Christmas card selections must be placed by Tuesday, November 24th.

Our White Winter set will take place in our downtown Wilmington, NC studio. Your session must be paid when booking. Payments are non-refundable. Choose your time carefully, once it’s chosen it’s reserved just for you. Be punctual. Showing up late gives you less time in our set, or could make you forfeit your shoot. Prints sold separately.

MHP is growing by two!

It’s a new season. We are entering into Fall and with that comes change. The weather gets cooler, the leaves get brighter and we can’t help but smile. Around MHP we’ve been smiling a lot because not only is Fall one of our favorite seasons, we have a big announcement to make!

Meet Becky & Renee, our newest team of photographers at MHP! No doubt you’ve seen Renee around Millie Holloman Photography for several years now. We are so happy she is home! She first started with us as an intern and has filled numerous roles around here. We are also incredibly grateful for Becky because Renee has been singing her praises for years!

Today we could not be more excited to be launching Becky & Renee as an MHP team! We hope that you will join us in giving them a warm welcome. So raise your pumpkin spice latte to Becky and Renee and head over to their portfolio to see their beautiful work and read more about them!

They are now booking weddings and portraits so call the studio to hear more about their special introductory packages!

I met Mindy many years ago through mutual friends. She and her husband, Dan, flew me to Florida to capture their big day several years back and we have kept in touch through the years over social media and email. When she was planning a trip to Wilmington with their girls, I was excited to hear that I would finally get to meet these sweet babies and photograph them. We spent a beautiful afternoon on Wrightsville Beach running, laughing, and splashing in the waves. The littlest one even took her first steps during the session! It was such a joy to have this time to see Mindy interact with her girls and capture some great moments for her and Dan to enjoy!
