Hi, I'm Ashley! I've newly joined that awesome 30 club. I'm married to my amazing husband, Mark. He supports me in a million ways and is the calm to my storm ;) My first and most important job in life is helping raise our gorgeous daughters, Paisley and Evie. Being a mommy is like nothing else. It helps me have this vision I'd never have without them. This without a doubt translates into my love for photography <3 When photograph other children I try to imagine how their mommies and daddies would like to remember every little detail of them, just like I do!
When I'm not working, you can usually find me at home (well,we also love the beach) . . . playing outside, dancing in the living room, Ordering take out.. Im an AWFUL cook. Citing wedding vows with my 4 year old whose pretending to be a bride and curly haired sweet baby on my hip. Besides my gorgeous little family I love - coffee, eating keto, working out, creating art, meeting new people and dreaming of a stress free world. (haha!) :) I'm goofy and hope to make my clients feel right at home. More than half my clients become my friends. I truly value the relationship I build with them while being a part of their big moments in life. I'm really terrible with words but I feel like that's why I'm a photographer. I speak through my images. I tell your story and you don't even need a caption. I think that I have a passion for this that is really indescribable. It's probably one of the greatest feelings- knowing what your really meant to do. I cry when I see my clients cry, and their joy is my joy. I get to see the passion behind those wedding days, those first few days of becoming a parent, and those family bonds and relationships. I get to document that and give it as a memory no longer just engraved in the back of your mind but also on paper. I'm a translator of emotion. Real life--> Real art.
I specialize in newborn & wedding photography. I also work with all the other beautiful walks of life :)
Feel free to shoot me a message with any questions. I'd love to talk! (No, really.. half my days are filled with zero adult conversation ;)
