Hey friend - I'm so glad you're here! The Wichita Mountains is a place very close to my heart, and not too far from home, so I felt like it was the perfect place for the Spring Blüm Retreat.


When I shoot out there, I feel like everything else melts away and it's just my camera and clients creating magical art together. It's the perfect spot to fall in love with photography all over again.


My heart for the BLÜM Retreat is to help you flourish in your journey - no matter where you are right now. I want to create an environment where you can find peace, get creative, feel free to ask all the questions, and discover direction for the future.


I want to help you discover what makes your heart sing, so you can create art that you are proud of from that space. 


My belief is that not only can you do what you love, but that you can also run a successful business. I have managed to do this, and I want to share whatever I can with you to help you succeed.


These retreats are for women who may feel stuck in business and just need a fresh perspective, those who are looking for a spark of creativity, or those who just need a place to fall in love with photography again - I want to help you truly bloom.

Blum was such a treat - from start to finish, Holly treated us so kindly and spoiled us with her generous spirit. She was relatable and available for the so many questions I had stored up.

She served us delicious healthy food. She was patient and thorough in her explanations. This weekend was a turning point for my business. One that I need more badly that I even knew. So, so very thankful.

I am forever grateful for the BLÜM retreat and all I learned.  To be in a team oriented environment while learning and expanding my photographing skills was such a gift! I walked away with not only a refreshed sense of self and expanded photography skills, but also new friends. BLÜM retreat with Holly Button Photography was such a gift! - Lyndsey 

I’m so thankful I was able to attend Holly’s BLUM retreat, I’ve been in the business for 10 years but still felt like I was searching for something more and not reaching my full potential, this was exactly what my heart needed in a time where my self doubt was rising. I loved how comfortable and valued she made each one of us feel and loved getting to meet other women/photographers who shared the same values and love for photography as me. I walked away from this retreat with a full heart and fresh perspective, I’ll never be able to say thank you enough! I love you so much! - Stephaine J

If you are thinking about going on a retreat with Holly... just do it! You will not be disappointed! From the moment you get there to the moment you leave you will learn, grow, and laugh so much!

Holly is a delight to be around! She loves what she does, and she loves helping others fall in love with photography! 10,000/10 🌟🌟🌟🌟 - Rachel D

From the moment we connected, I felt comfortable with Holly! She answered any and all questions and in a timely manner. She’s really big on voice text and I absolutely love that because you can hear her tone and excitement.

As someone who has extreme social anxiety and stranger danger (it’s a real thing lol) I never once felt anxious while I was at the retreat. Literally as soon as I pulled in Holly met me at my car and gave me the biggest hug and smile. I felt like I’d known her my entire life. The atmosphere of the shoots was simply amazing.

The knowledge I came home with I can’t even begin to thank her for it all. The families she chose were perfect, the location was perfect. I will definitely return. It is worth every penny! - Bobbie D.

I had such an amazing weekend with Holly and all the amazing photographers that came along. The weekend was filled with great content, amazing discussions, and even better company! 

I felt like I was supposed to be there and I would do it 100 times again!!! - Valerie U

I’m not about perfect and posed, because that isn’t real life for me. It’s chaos, it's unexpected, and oh so wonderful.
