My name is Ashley and I'm so glad you are here. I specialize in maternity, births and family portraiture, and truly strive to give my clients an experience that feels relaxed and enjoyable. I feel that photography captures life in such a personal way that I immerse myself fully into every session, curating the experience especially for you and your family, to ensure we capture true smiles and giggles the entire session. Your vision and moments are valuable to me and I aim to give you images that are vibrant and organic. I would love to get to know you better to give you the best experience possible!
I'm Ashley, I have four daughters, a man child, and a pug named Hank. I like tacos, Indian food and coffee...like a whole lot. My husband would tell you it's a problem, but I think he just doesn't understand. I try not to take myself too seriously, and I strive to surround myself with laughter. I lived in Alaska for most of my high school days, and I still claim that as home. If I could convince my husband, I would pack everything up and move back in a second. Although, the beach has grown on me...a little.

I'm a mom to four little girls, a man child, and a pug named Hank. I like tacos, Indian food and coffee...like a whole lot. My husband would tell you it's a problem, but I think he just doesn't understand. I try not to take myself too seriously, and I strive to surround myself with laughter. I claim Alaska as home, though I grew up moving around a lot (military child probs), and the mountains just have my heart. If I could convince my husband, I would pack everything up and move back in a second. Although, the beach as grown on me...a little.

I try to give my clients the treatment and experience I would want if I were my client. I feel like there is so much stress around sessions sometimes - and I totally get it! I'm a mom of 4 sassy little girls, they are absolutely wild, and the thought of taking them out at sunset and expecting them to behave is overwhelming. I don't want my clients to approach my sessions that way. This is a small window that we shouldn't spend it stressing, but enjoying the moment with the people we love! All of my clients know that I'm going to make a fool of myself at some point - or multiple points - to make them laugh and I'm more likely to say something incredibly ridiculous and silly to get your kids to smile. I know that in 10 years when my clients look back at their portraits, they are going to know the smiles peering up at them, they will recognize the emotion and it will bring a smile to their faces. That is what I want for you! I want to give you images that remind you of how happy you felt because you were about to welcome in a new baby, or how your son used to be shorter than you. These are the moments that I know I want to look back on with my own family, so I know that these will be the moments you treasure, too. I try not to put too many limits on my session, because I don't want you to be preoccupied with how much time is left on the session and Sally isn't smiling yet, I want you to focus on snuggling little Sally, or cuddling in with your partner. Focus on the love, the moment you are sharing and let me handle the rest.
I've had several photographers do my family sessions but when I found Ashley I knew I would never need to look for another one again! Our photos look so natural because that is the energy she provides, which is hard to find by the way. Her skill is unlike any other, 100% recommend. - Sol
Ashley was a true professional from my first contact with her through the editing of the final picture gallery. She took the time to provide tips on what types of clothing would photograph best for fall backdrops and worked hard to find a beautiful and unique location for our family photos. During the shoot, she worked hard to get my children smiling and laughing, which produced some of the best photos we've ever had taken and truly captured each of their personalities. She captured a variety of family groupings, which meant I had lots of options to choose from. I have never been happier with family photos and can't wait to have Ashley photograph us again soon! - Jaclyn
