My goal with every session is to help people feel present so that they can make genuine, real memories. That's why when you book a family session with me, whether it's to celebrate the birth of your child or to document another year that passes, it will be about capturing and freezing these moments in time. To tell a story that is uniquely your own, even amongst the chaos of life, even in what some may say are ordinary days, all are precious and deserve beautiful images that evoke emotion - that make you cry or laugh or smile from ear to ear.

You are hiring your photographer to capture moments and memories, not just "pretty" photographs. I'm here to capture the candids - the smiles, the tears, the snuggles, the giggles. I'm a storyteller, and my camera is the tool to document your special story. Once you decide on your package, I help you each step of the way - from location, to a fun activity, to clothing options. Family sessions should be fun, and I want you all to enjoy yourselves, be present together - leave all the details to me, I got you!

what is a lifestyle session?

"There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn't that kind of the point?" – Pam Halpert

you may want to work with me if...

I currently offer three different family + couple session package options. Each come with their own length of photographing time, a set number of digital downloads ready for you in an online gallery, along with print/album options. I'm definitely the photographer who will strongly encourage you to get those photos off your phone/computer and into physical prints/products because they are your legacy, and deserve to be shown off! 

my packages and pricing

you prefer messy, imperfect moments captured over perfectly posed images

aren't afraid to let the kiddos get their clothes a little dirty, and to let them explore during the session

you are open to letting your kids play, and to get goofy/silly during your session

aren't as focused on the stare at the camera and smile moments, and are more focused on the genuine moments of a hug or tiny hands holding

ready to print your photos and have images that are your family's heirlooms to share for generations to come

Lifestyle sessions can really encompass a lot, so I'd love to share with you the types of sessions I do offer.

Ashley has worked with my family on multiple occasions and has been so fun and easy to shoot with every time. She is very accommodating and goes above and beyond to make the experience as fun and personalized as possible. She is also great with my son who is a very busy toddler and doesn't like to sit still. I recommend her to everyone I can!
