Capture Life.

Bonito Photography was developed in 2004. Twenty years ago Holli's father handed her, her first SLR Canon AE1 camera. From there she had a vested interest in landscapes. It wasn't until last year she began shooting portraits with a friend and experimenting with black & white film. After a few shoots, she realized...capturing images of people (but not limited to) is what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Holli Bonito is a Connecticut native now living in Colorado.

A special thanks to Ron, Latoya & Kamari (my first shoot) for giving me the opportunity of a life time and everyone-else who has let me into their lives and allowed me to see a personal side of them which would normally be uncomfortable.

I have been both going to and recommending Holli Bonito Photography for the last decade! Holli’s ability to put the person being photographed at ease (and even actually really enjoy and have fun) during the shoot translates into the most natural and beautiful photographs you will ever see! Rather than getting posed, fake smiles, and awkward portraits with Holli of my two children, I have blown up and hanging on my wall Holli Bonito 9x12 portraits of them from age 9 to High School Senior Portraits that I cherish EVERY SINGLE DAY while they are both away in college. I cannot tell you WHAT A GIFT it is to see your children in a portrait full of the personality you remember about them — complete with the twinkle in their eyes, the little smile they used to make, and the kindness in their heart! These qualities ONLY COME OUT in Holli’s art of photography and no one else’s! I plan to hire Holli Photography for both their College Graduations, Weddings, and other family events I hope to capture, remember, and share with generations to come!

Our first ‘blended family’ photo-shoot was a memory in the making. Holli was so inventive- we got some great ‘unconventional’ shots…even re-enacted an angry geese fly-over! She made everyone comfortable, and allowed us to be as silly as we wanted…she really captured the essence of our fun-loving, anything-goes, crazy group! We can’t wait until we have more grand-kids so we can have an excuse to do it again…Thanks Holli, we loved every darn picture!
