Hi, I'm Ashley!Welcome to my journey
These are always awkward, so I'll get to it. You're here to know who I am and why you should trust me to capture your most sacred moments in life.
First, I am not your average photographer.
I am an open book, and I want you to get to know me as much as I want to get to know you,
your journey, what brings you happiness, makes you laugh and makes your heart burst!
The more we connect, the more I can capture true images with real emotion.
So, read below and see if you jive.
So, who am I?
I'm a mom, wife, entrepreneur, PHOTOGRAPHER, fitness coach, athlete, creator, writer and lover of no bullshit.
I love coffee, good wine and
sweet sassy saxaphone music!
I am a Mom
Being a mom has been hands down one of the most unexpectedly bitter-sweet and humbling experiences of my life.

I am a WifeTo this day, we've still never fought
Both Jim and I had failed marriages in the past, so we met each other late in life. But late enough that we knew what we wanted, we learned from our past and knew that we were ready for each other.
Everyday we have one goal: to make each other laugh. We've never not met this goal.
To this day, we have never fought. This is because the pillar of our marriage is communication & true understanding of one another.
I could not have imagined a better partner in life & I never knew a love like this existed!
I am an EntrepreneurI love what I do, everyday
I went to school to be a police officer, and thankfully never went that route.
I am stubborn, driven and do not like to be told what to do.
I saw opportunity within a passion of mine and decided to follow my heart rather than settle where I knew I'd be unhappy.
The entrepreneur road has been HARD AF, but I learn more everyday and appreciate the journey the further along I get.
I am an Athletethrough and through as long as my body will allow
I grew up playing sports, competing with the boys any chance I got.
I was offered two scholarships for hockey, but unfortunately never got to take the opportunities due to health issues.
I started CrossFit in 2012 and never looked back. I was hooked and began competing at only 4 months in. I wanted to see how far I could push myself and learn what my body was really capable of.
Three CrossFit Games Regionals under my belt, and many other local competitions - thats where I love to be!
