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.

If you are planning on bringing a pet to your session, we are more than happy to have you do that. We love furry friends and are always pleased to add them into our sessions! Here are some things you should remember to bring to ensure everything goes smoothly:

 

  1. A leash. This will help you keep your pet near to you and where you want him or her for photos. (They aren’t just for dogs, you know.) Be sure to bring a thinner leash, as they are easier to hide or edit out if necessary.
  2. A friend. Having someone come with you specifically to take care of your pet is ideal. This will help so that your pet is not running around all over the place or alone in the car, should you wish to take some photos without Fido.
  3. Treats are great bribery for your animal. It will help keep your pet still and focused on the camera.
  4. A favorite toy. The noisier the better. This is also a great tool to help keep your pet’s attention on me. We can also use it for a fun game and get some fun interaction shots.

Almost every photographer has been asked for RAW files by their customers at one point or another. For some, it can be hard to understand why their photographer has refused to part ways with their RAW files, but know that your photographer is not trying to be difficult. They have several good reasons why they don’t just hand over all the un-edited photos that were taken during your shoot.

When you’re working with a photographer during a shoot, you’ll notice that they’re constantly snapping away. This is because not all of the images come out perfectly. Sometimes a specific pose or scenario needs to be shot multiple times just to get one good shot. A professional photographer spends a lot of time sorting through all of the images that were taken during a shoot to select the best shots.

Once the best photos have been chosen, they are brought to life through post process editing with professional editing software. This stage which takes a lot of time and results in the beautiful end product that is handed over to you. If your photographer had to give you the RAW files you wouldn’t be seeing the end result.

You’d also be surprised at how many people want the RAW files in order to alter the photos themselves. If that individual then chose to share those photos after making their own adjustments, the integrity of your photographer’s work is put at risk.

Something else to keep in mind is that RAW files are huge and you need a lot of memory to store them. You might also find that you don’t have the proper software available at home to view this type of  file, so again you would be sitting with megabytes offiles that you can’t do anything with.

When you hire a professional photographer you’re putting your trust in their abilities. You need to trust that the photos they hand over to you are a result of their hard work, experience and eye for the perfect shot.
