here's my story...

Well hello there. Thank you for taking the time to check out my page. I know there are a lot of talented photographers out there and I am stoked you stopped by.

Photography has been a part of my life since I was a kid. Taking after my pops who was a landscape photographer for souvenir postcards, it was natural for me to have a camera in my hands at a young age. My passion then became saving memories. No event has escaped my obsession of capturing and immortalizing timeless moments. I have boxes of photos that I have collected throughout the years, slides I developed in college, etc. If my house was burning down these boxes are what I would grab. Photos of your history are irreplaceable.

In college I fell into the photography program at the University of Nevada, Reno but I always felt like I was faking it as a conceptual fine art photographer. The realization came to me while studying abroad in India that there is power in showing people how uniquely I see each of them. It has taken me a lifetime to to finally feel comfortable to say that I have found my calling as a portrait photographer.

Now I find myself in a life filled with love. I am married to the best partner and supporter I could ever have dreamed of and one of the most talented people I know. His music is incredibly unique and inspires me to pursue my creative passions everyday. I am newly a mother to a little wild baby boy. I never knew how much I needed this precious little sprout in my life until he was here. We also have a couple of pretty fantastic pound-pups who have kept me sane for 15 years now.

I am excited for all of life's next adventures. I look for new experiences and love life's firsts. When I am not boogieing at live concerts and music festivals in fun homemade costumes, you can find me riding my bike or taking a hike. You could also find me slinging craft cocktails behind a bar or bellied up to one. Traveling the world is big passion in my life. Whether it's to India, Italy, Costa Rica, or cross-continental train journeys through the US, I am constantly planning our next trip. Meeting new people and hearing their stories fuels me and now that you know a little bit about me, I look forward to hearing your stories and creating new ones together.


hey. this is me.

“Working with Ashley was an incredibly wonderful and positive experience. From start to finish it was clear that Ashely cares deeply for her clients and creating beautiful photographs. I highly recommend women or couples to break out of their comfort zone and book a boudoir themed photoshoot. I left the shoot feeling so good and comfortable in my own skin.”
