ABOUT ASHLEY

Born and raised in the Mahoning Valley, I am a natural light photographer who embraces our city's backdrop for your images. I’m a positive, passionate, stops to pet every puppy I see, kind of girl! 

Genuine, real emotion and interaction is a must for me while composing your portraits. Visual storytelling is my strength as a photographer. I am creating a momentary documentary of your life– whether you’re on a picnic with your family, sipping wine with your partner at a local winery, celebrating a milestone in your life, or a senior exploring one of your favorite spots in downtown Youngstown. I can’t wait to meet you all and capture your individual stories.

The Workspace

Have you guys noticed how much I love plants, nature, the desert? So during your session, my workspace is outdoors among nature, or downtown, or some other really fun city. I'm travel obsessed and believe that experiences far exceed material things. 

My "office" is mobile. I love to patronize our local coffee shops & cafes for our meetings and ordering sessions! Supporting local businesses is important to me and it's a great way to showcase some of the hidden gems in our town to you guys! Other days my office is located wherever I pull over in Mill Creek Park. Seriously, the best brainstorming sessions happen there. I do have a home office too where I keep everything organized in cute binders. I'm not a complete nomad!!
