Welcome to Holly's Hobby Photography! My name is Holly Ely. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse, living in St. Johnsbury, VT. Nursing was a career that was embedded in me from when I was a child, always wanting to take care of other people. I love being a nurse, but my passion is photography.


I am the mother of two amazing, caring children, and wife to a one of a kind husband. He is my rock, and my family is my world! We enjoy camping as a family in the summer, and do so every chance we get. I am so lucky to have such a supportive family that has allowed me to both continue my education to get my nursing degree, as well as stand behind me in my decision to start this business.


I specialize in Newborn and child photography. Senior portrait sessions are based on the uniqueness of each client, and coming in the summer/fall of 2015 I will be adding another genre to what I will offer on top of all that I already do! Looking for other portraiture sessions? Engagement, wedding, event, business headshots, commercial property/real estate, or perhaps fantasy/concept/model shoots? Please send me an email with what you are looking for as I am open to all forms of photography!

Please enjoy looking over some of my favorite photos, and feel free to contact me with questions or to place a booking. Thank you for visiting, and please sign my guestbook and let me know what you think. Don't forget to "LIKE" me on Facebook by clicking on the Facebook link on the "contact" page and adding me to your "interests" so you can keep in touch and abreast of events and promotions we have from time to time.
