Hi! I’m Ashley and I’m so honored that you are considering me to photograph such an important stage in your life!
A little bit about myself. I am a wife to a phenomenal man and a mom to a gorgeous baby girl and two furbabies. I am a full-time 2nd grade teacher but I love handling the sweet little newborns when they still have that new baby smell.
My photography journey began at the beginning of 2012 when my husband surprised me with my very first DSLR so we could document our travels to our fullest while we lived in Germany. From that point on I fell in love with photographing people and the lives that they lead.
I started a partnership with a local photographer in 2013 which allowed me to assist and learn from one of the best in the area regarding newborn posing and safety. It was a privilege that I am so grateful of now looking back. I spent hundreds of hours investing in educating myself in the safety of posing and developing the tools and knowledge necessary to deliver beautiful photographs that will last a lifetime.
We moved to Washington state at the end of 2013 and I began my own journey of photographing newborns when I opened my own home studio in Lacey, Wa on January 1, 2014. I have been focusing on working with newborns ever since and it has been an incredible experience. Every day that I get to handle a new bundle of joy I am swept away by how much I love my job.
There is nothing sweeter than getting to preserve the memories of how a babe looked when they were just beginning their life. Those sweet tiny features won’t stay tiny for long! You’ll want to remember that moment in time when your little one had those adorable side rolls, flakey fresh newborn skin, and induced a sense of awe and wonderment to their older siblings. That is the moment that I want to capture for you!
I currently serve clients in all surrounding Pacific Northwest Areas (PNW) including but not limited to: Olympia, Lacey, Tacoma, Lakewood, JBLM (Joint-Base Lewis & McChord), Puyallup, Bremerton, Spanaway, and Tumwater.
