Hi! My name is Ashley and I'm a 21-year-old portrait and travel photographer in the Washington D.C. area. A little bit about me: I love Jesus, instant film, used book stores, quoting movies, baking new things, playing with my 2 corgis, exploring new places, adventuring in big cities, and all things Disney. I'm pretty go-with-the-flow and probably too sarcastic for my own good. I love traveling (so if you're far away, I'll come to you!) and hope to eventually move back home to southern California!
I am overly enamored with photographing people. I'm passionate about the in-between moments; the laughs between poses and the unexpected glances and the moments that no one planned. I want to photograph pure, natural, organic feeling.
The people I photograph are unapologetically themselves. They may be reserved, or playful, or rebellious. They might come from all different walks of life, but they are each boldly living their lives. Whether they are sure of where they're going or still figuring things out, they are authentic and true. Whether I'm photographing a senior in their favorite city, someone with the love of their life, or a musician performing their heart out on stage, they all have a passion and a light in their life. I want to capture that for them to look back on. I want to remind you why you do what you do and why you love who (or what) you love.
I love (love love) photo sessions in meadows, vineyards, and orchards (or DISNEY WORLD !!!) as much as the next girl, but I also love every day life. Let's do photos in your home, playing guitar with your cat sitting next to you on the couch. Let's do a session of you and your fiancé produce shopping at the local farmer's market or drinking coffee at your favorite run-down diner or hiking a new mountain. Let's hang out and take photos of you cooking a mean pasta dish or perusing the library or walking your dog through the city. Let's do real life and little moments, because that's the most perfect thing I could imagine.
For booking and information, feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the "Contact" page and fill out the form. I have a heart for traveling, so if we're a ways apart, no need to fear - I'll come to you.

Your big day is SO important. This is the beginning of an entire lifetime spent with your significant other, and I am so in love with capturing photos for my couples to be able to look back on for the rest of their lives. It's not just about the details and the location and all of the beautiful decorations, it's about the feelings and the experience.

You don't have to be getting married to have beautiful photos taken of you and your honey. Whether it's your 15th wedding anniversary or you've simply been dating for a couple of years, a sweetheart session is always a great idea (and a perfect gift for your significant other)! Sweetheart sessions are $350 for 30+ photos, up to two (2) hours shooting time, and up to two (2) outfits.
Best friend sessions/sister sessions:
Your best friend is one of the most important people in your life, so it would make sense that you would want to have photos of you together to last you a lifetime. Let's go grab some ice cream cones and take photos of you two in that cute little ice cream parlor downtown. Let's take photos goofing around in Target (everyone loves Target). Let's raid the local thrift shop and have a fashion show on a rooftop somewhere. These sessions are all about fun and friendship, whether you want a chill session at your home or a quirky adventure. **Are you affiliated with a sorority? These are also ideal for you and your big/little sister! BFF/Sister sessions are $250 for 20+ photos, one (1) hour shooting time, and up to three (3) outfits.
