Hello, I'm Ashley!
I am a wife, mom, lover of mexican food! Thank you so much for stopping by and wanting to read a little bit about me!
I am a natural light photographer who loves being able to tell stories with what I shoot. There is always lots of love and laughter in my sessions and I love love love that I can offer that through photos.
I grew up in chilly Minnesota where I went to college for my childhood dream, photography. Photography has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. That is all I would ever say I would be when I grew up, not knowing that I seriously would grow up to be a photographer. Score!!!
My Husband and I decided to move to Arizona when his job was opening a new location here. It was a hard decision leaving all of our family but we knew that everything would work out for us. I get to pursue my dreams while he gets to advance in his career. Why wouldn’t we move to sunny Arizona right!?! We have 3 beautiful children that definitely know how to keep me on my toes and test my patience everyday but I could not ask for anything more. I love all the messy chaos and the snuggles I get from our little munchkins and they defiantly make life worth living!
When I am not photographing, you can find me at home doing my full time job as a stay at home mommy. I will be running our oldest to and from school, watching our 2 littles running around making a mess and enjoying all their laughter. When my day finally calms down and the children are in bed you can find me snuggled up on the couch with my husband watching our favorite tv show or editing sessions.

We are so excited to begin our journey with you! We’ve put together a few tips on how to gain the most referrals through our program. If you have found that something else works too, let us know and we’ll add it in.

  • Have a good online social media presence. Actively post on your social media pages – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. When we do your session, post the photos to your pages, make them your cover photos and blog about your experience. Keep the hype up by talking about your photos on your social media. Talk about your session before and after it happens. We can even stop and post a selfie during if you’d like! Tag our page when you talk about us, so your followers will link to our page.
  • Pass out your rep cards. We will give you personalized rep cards with your photos. Pass them out to your friends, teammates, classmates, etc.
  • Mention us to juniors/seniors in other high schools. If you are in a lot of extracurricular activities that allow you to be around students from other schools, be sure to pass your rep cards along to them and let them know how much you love our company. We take on clients from within a 50-mile radius of our studio. If you need a list of approved schools, just ask and we’ll send it over. The more people you talk to about the session, the greater the chance of getting referrals.
  • Talk about your session and how much fun it was. Whenever you show people your photos, talk about how much fun the session was. Include details from your experience to make them want to do it as well. We’re selling more than just beautiful photos, but the experience as well.
  • Get your parents involved. Have your parents pass out rep cards to their friends at work who have teenagers that will soon need our services.

My family and I spend A LOT of time by the pool and at Lake Pleasant during the summer and I must say, I am obsessed with @swimzip swimming suits! With summer here I thought I would share them with you because they are seriously great! Plus they will be perfect for underwater photos this summer.

I have two great swimming suits by Swim Zip and I am amazed by the quality. They are some of the best swimming suits I have ever had for my daughter. I love how many different ways the three piece can be worn and I love how much coverage the surf suit has. Might I add that they are UPF 50+ sun protection and have a great variety of swimming suits to choose from for girls, boys and women! Check out some adorable photos of my daughter below.

For some of us, preparing our husbands for the family photo session is as exhausting as preparing the kids. If your husband is happy-go-lucky about photo day, that’s excellent. If you’re dealing with someone who’s reluctant, however, then here are some things you can do to help:

 

  • Especially if this is your first session together with the family now that the kids are mobile, let him know how the session will go and discuss your expectations. Also, if you have to bribe the kids, communicate this with him so he can help remind them of the bribery. Check out our blog post on the power of bribery.

 

  • Warn him that the kids will probably be crazy or freak out and that he should prepare himself for that. Let him know that it will still be fine and to try not to get overwhelmed or worried.

 

  • Let him know that the more helpful he is in getting himself and the kids ready, the less stressed you will be and the less chance of an argument between you arising.

 

  • Remind him that the session is only one to two hours and then it will all be over. This way, he sees a light at the end of the tunnel and can stick it out.

 

  • Give him the stress relieving tips we have in this article. Click here.

 

  • If your husband is being difficult, bribe him to cooperate during the session as well. If it works for the kiddos, it may very well work for him!

 

  • And most importantly – remind him that you love him (and that he loves you, and that’s why he’s cooperating with this). Tell him how much you appreciate his support and cooperation in this, and how pleased you are going to be with the finished photos.
