I remember it like it was yesterday. I took this image of my youngest daughter, Mackenzie, when she turned four months old. I had had a love affair with photography for a while before I captured this image; however, this was “the” photo shoot that made me realize that I wanted to pursue photography as a business.
I grabbed my adorable baby girl, a lace romper, a bow, my living room ottoman, Madison’s Pottery Barn Kids comforter, my camera of course, and I started snapping.
Clearly, my style and my skills have evolved over the past two years (truth – I sort of laugh looking at this now). But, all laughter aside, when I look at this picture it brings me right back to that moment where I was sitting in my living room, really excited to start this new venture. That’s one of the things I LOVE about photography. While this image was taken almost two years ago (exactly), it takes me back in time, instantly.
Once I made the decision to open up Ashley Rogers Photography, I began working really hard to build my portfolio and to get my name out there. I was so thankful for all of the support that I got -- from family, friends and strangers! I was working a lot and really finding my niche - lifestyle newborn photography.
And, just when things really started to take off, we got the news…
Don’t get me wrong, I was very excited to move to Costa Rica! But, it did cause me to have to put most of my client work on hold for a while – and that was a total bummer. So, while I’m sad that our time in Costa Rica is coming to an end, at the same time I’m so incredibly happy to announce that I’m coming home! Flights to Florida are booked, and June 22 is the big day!
To celebrate my homecoming, I’m offering a limited time $300 off special on my “The Complete Experience” maternity/newborn package. This package includes a maternity, Fresh 48 (hospital) and lifestyle newborn session in your home. You get three sessions, all of the digital images, prints and a beautiful album to tell your entire story!
I’m now booking sessions in South Florida in July, and in the Orlando area beginning in August. If you’re expecting and due this summer, now is the perfect time to contact me to reserve time on my calendar!
