I started studying photography my first year of college, in the dark room. From there I grew my passion. I practiced on weekends, and convinced all my friends to let me make their portraits. Once I got into upper level photo classes, I started doing paid gigs for my church and for Christmas Cards. After those photos started going around, I got into family sessions, birthdays, engagements and pet sessions. Now that I have a full-time job in video production, I’m able to take photos behind the scenes, and on location. Through my job I've been able to photograph a car wash, a 7-11, and a lot of locales for social media. My passion for photography has continued to flourish throughout the years. I believe I’ll never tire of capturing emotions through my lenses; both internal and external.

More about Ashley A....

What do you love about your job?

I love telling stories, that's partially why I work in the field of video production. Being able to capture moments in time is a gift. The idea of being able to preserve a moment in time is such a beautiful concept. If I can help a grandmother see her grandchildren that live hundreds of miles away, or help a dog dad remember his favorite pup after she's passed, or tell the story of a child's first birthday, then I'm going to do it joyfully. Photography in one perspective, is a creative way of showcasing others’ light, and making the world a more beautiful place.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

In family shoots I try to make everyone laugh; it shows their fun side and gives off a candid vibe. In shoots with pets, I like to get on their level and do whatever I can to bring out their personality. With animals, that could mean holding treats, running around with a squeaky toy or using that high-pitched voice that only animals can hear.
For first birthdays or other event photography, I like to blend into the atmosphere to capture people being themselves. Spontaneous and candid are definitely favorite’s of mine
