In The Most Beautiful Homes

Charla Holmes established her photography studio in 1982 with a passion for capturing the essence of life through her lens. Her work has earned her numerous accolades, including the “Best of Waco” award for 11 consecutive years. Recently, she was voted The Heart of Texas Champion for being “Best Family Photographer” in Central Texas, which is a testament to her dedication and passion for her craft. She thanks for Wacoan readers for voting her best photographer in several fields.

In 2005, she earned a Master’s degree from the Professional Photographers of America, and her work has been featured in the International Photographer Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City.

Charla’s passion is capturing significant moments in people’s lives, creating unique and personalized photographs that interpret her clients’ stories and relationships. Charla has built a strong bond with her clients over her 30 years of experience, many of whom she has photographed since their childhood.

Her clients are like an extended family, and she values the relationships she builds with them more than any accolades she receives for her work. Charla considers it a privilege to capture her clients’ special moments, and her work has been recognized in prominent publications, including Brian Townley’s coffee table book “Letters to My Younger Self”.

Before every session, Charla recites a prayer: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,” Colossians 3:23.

Charla always works to give back to the community that supports her business through donations at charity and community auction. In June 2022, she was awarded ‘Model Wacoan of the Year’ by Fuzzy Friends Rescue.

Charla creates a relaxing atmosphere behind the camera, capturing her clients’ unique personalities and relationships beautifully and authentically. Her passion, dedication and love for her craft inspire her clients to trust her and allow her to capture their most cherished moments.
