Holli Cipowski is an exceptional photographer. She loves photography. She was taking pictures in her head before she got her first 35mm camera at the age of eight. She’s always loved posing her friends and taking their photo. At the age of 15 she got her first job at a photography studio editing printed portraits the old-fashioned way with oil-based colored pencils.
Holli went to vocational school to learn photography and to learn how to set up her own darkroom. She continued learning about photography after high school at the College of Lake County and McHenry County College, then later at Columbia College in Chicago. Holli continues to hone her skills and learn from other photographers.
She started her first business, Holli’s Photography, back in Illinois, and moved to Arizona in 2016. HK Photo Smiles was born in 2018, and there’s been recent reimagining of her branding with a logo and website.
Holli enjoys sharing a smile, making others smile, and meeting new people. She loves to laugh and see live comedy whenever she can. She also enjoys camping and doing anything outdoors.
She’s a mother to a remarkable 17-year-old son, Hunter, who’s a guitarist and vocalist. She loves seeing him perform at music venues with his band Grail.
You’ll often find her networking and building new relationships as a member of S.E.V.E.N, SMRBA, and the Queen Creek Chamber.
Holli feels blessed to have found a true passion that’s become an amazing career. Every day she gets to help her clients look and feel their best through her pictures.
