holly gerard persika photography

Hi, I’m Holly.

I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in Denver, Colorado. I have had a passion for photography ever since I was a little kid. My grandpa even set me up a darkroom in his basement for me to use back in the day. I also love good music, my husband, event styling, warm weather, the mountains, ice cream, traveling, hiking, cheese, writing, craft beer, art, the beach, gardening, and design. I would love to chat about your ideal photography session!

Why Persika if your name is Holly?

My husband gave me the nickname¬†“Peach” when we first started dating and it stuck. “Persika” means peach in Swedish, which ties in nicely with my somewhat-Swedish heritage.
