Hello, I'm Ashley -- thank you so much for your interest in my photography.
I'm guessing you've landed on this page because you want to know more about the girl behind the lens -- so here is a little bit about me. I'm a mom to two beautiful girls, Madison (5) and Mackenzie (3), and a wife to an amazing husband, Scott. Florida has been my home for nearly all of my life, with the exception of a two-year stint in Costa Rica (can't say that was horrible). I'm a proud alumni of the University of Central Florida (go Knights!) -- I spent many years at that wonderful school earning my Bachelor's degree in Marketing and Master's degree in Business. Photography is obviously a passion of mine, but boating, Orange Theory, red wine and Lilly Pulitzer are also up there on my love list.
So what got me here? I picked up my first DSLR camera when I found out I was pregnant with Madison. What started as a hobby quickly became an obsession. Fast forward 6 years (and countless photography courses) and here I am. It's been a long journey with the most amazing reward -- hundreds (maybe thousands) of pictures of my girls in their first years of life. I have so many amazing memories I was able to capture and freeze -- I'll never get those moments back but I can look back on them forever. If you're interested in a glimpse into my life, you can check out some of my personal work here.
The emotions I feel when I look back at my family's story are indescribable, and it's something I want every mother to experience. These moments we have with our children and all of their milestones come and go so quickly. I know we've all heard the "they grow too fast" saying but my goodness it's so true. That's why I absolutely, positively love what I do.
Contact me if you're interested in booking a session or learning how to take better pictures of our own children (because I teach, too!). I'd love the opportunity to tell your family's story!
