Hey everyone! I’m Ashlyn.
It's taken me a while to figure out "my why" when it comes to this job....and I honestly love the relationships I've created with my clients. I want to be there on your wedding day, capture your baby bump, photograph your newborn and new family at every milestone. I LIVE for not only connecting with you and your story, but seeing you and your family grow - and I get to be able to be the memory capturer for you.
I first picked up a DSLR in December of 2009 to photograph The Nutcracker at The Warner Theater. I was both dancing and teaching at this point and it felt great being able to capture those quick, beautiful moments of that performance on camera, and I give most of my credit to my dance background for that.
I’ve taken photos for SO many clients and I am so blessed! Never in my wildest dreams did I think taking pictures for people would have grown to what it’s become! I enjoy traveling to new places, meeting new people, and creating lasting friendships.
I'm a Canon camera user. I consider my work to look like real life - bright, vibrant, and warm...it's as if you're looking at the photo in the moment it happened with your own two eyes. I’m inspired by passion, laughter, and the overall joy of life.
I’m self-taught and I grow in my work every.single.day! That’s why I LOVE being a photographer - I’m constantly thinking of new ideas and perfecting my current ones….this business definitely keeps me on my toes and as someone with a type A personality, it works out greatly in my favor.
...Did You Know?!
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in June of 2022 and had my full thyroid removed in September.
While it's been a journey full of stress that pretty much came out of left field, I am still thankful for my current outcome as I transition to this new life without a thyroid.
I am an open book about my journey so far and I'm ALLLL about education about what I've learned along the way. Feel free to ask!
I am currently still headed in the direction of "no evidence of disease" along with getting my hormone levels in the right range. While it's scary, I'm still hopeful and optimistic
