Meet Ashley

hi there! i am so honored that you are considering me as your family photographer! what to expect from a session with me? well, i can sum it up to the number one thing i hear most often from parents who work with me for the first time, "i can't believe you got SO many good ones! we thought that our kids were so naughty and all over the place. i was so surprised not only to see such a large, beautiful gallery, but that you captured their personalities so well!" i'm not saying this to boost my ego, but to remind you that kids will be kids! parents may think their session with me is pure chaos, but that's only because i'm not a big believer in posing. i feel genuine smiles come best from candid activity such as playing games and being silly. i also am respectful of your time, so when i know i've got what i need, i stop shooting (dads love that!). i don't see any point in continuing to shoot and wear everybody out to the point that you all are ready to go home. i want you guys to leave the session excited! my family sessions usually last around 45-60 min. other than that? i shoot mainly in the morning and evening. i will also never, ever ask your child to say cheese. :)
