Motherhood is overwhelming, it's also beautiful.
I want to photograph your beautiful, chaotic, crazy life.

                                               You live for your children and them for you. The bond between a mother and child is unlike anything else. It just sounds like some cliche until you have children of your own, then you know it is very real. I want to take that feeling and turn it into a photo. A photo that becomes art in your home. You'll walk past it everyday and some days you'll just stare at that chubby faced baby in the photo  wondering where that baby went. 

I've always worked with children and although it can be challenging I actually prefer it. Kids like to have fun, are oblivious with all that is wrong with the world and most of all they speak the truth, as harsh as it may be sometimes! I love capturing a child just as they are, messy face, crazy expression in all. Life is messy and I think sometimes we try to hard to clean it up. 

                                                                     That's why I fell in love with newborn photography. As I sat holding my daughter, all of those terrible post pardum days, I thought to myself that I'd never forget her tiny features, those little sounds she made, the smile that was probably just gas. As a mother of a 5 year old I can tell you that without photos I would remember NONE of those things. Motherhood is overwhelming to say the least. That's why my goal is to help freeze these moments in time. To make mom get in the photo even when she doesn't feel like it because one day she'll be glad she did. One day when you've passed that photo down to your child they'll show their little ones and they can all ooh anD ahh over the fact that they have grandmas nose, or a freckle in that same spot.

what moms are saying

Ashley is not only an AMAZING newborn photographer, but also makes you feel absolutely beautiful during maternity photos. We chose her based on her experience and raw talent for our little girls newborn photos, but also had the opportunity for a maternity session. And I can say, DO NOT PASS THAT UP! I was in awe! Ashley has that charisma to make your photos all you could ever dream. All in the comfort of her own home studio, which is PERFECT btw. She has an amazing assistant to make sure your precious newborn is safe at all times, which was big for me. If anyone asks about newborn photos, I always refer them to Ashley!

Ashley does a wonderful job of making new mothers feel confident in photos right after giving birth. She does a very nice job of working with sometimes uncooperative subjects and producing wonderful results. It has been a pleasure to have her photograph my baby girl as a newborn and us as a family this fall.

Ashley has captured our little one since day one. From his newborn session, 6 month sitter session, family sessions, and of course meeting Santa for the first time. She is amazing to work with, and goes above and beyond every step of the way to make sure your photos are everything you want, and more. I’m so thankful we have such a talented photographer close to home to capture memories I will cherish forever.
