colossians 3:17

I'm a tenderhearted wife, mom to two precious little girls, and follower of Christ. I love all things mint and floral, and all things love. I've been known to shed a tear or two along with my clients at their wedding. When I'm not photographing love stories or changing diapers you can find me sipping coffee with my bible in my lap and my kids on each side.

I began capturing images on film at the age of 20 when I discovered my husband's old 35mm in a box shortly after we were married. 
From there I moved on to digital and rapidly became obsessed with the idea of documenting our precious memories to hang on the walls.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

The South: 
Where love, family and tradition are the sugar in our tea.”

Having been raised in the outskirts of New Orleans, you'd think gumbo runs through my veins but it's actually the mountains of Georgia that call my heart. And while my husband and I still live in the boot, I make it a priority to travel back to those beautiful country views. 

My love for photography has brought me all over the state of Louisiana. But regardless of where I travel, the sweeping mountains and rolling hills will always be home.

"I can’t say enough great things about Ashley. The second I saw her work, I knew she was The One. She is super sweet, easy to work with, very accommodating, creative, and obviously talented. Our wedding photos are amazing and perfectly reflect the fun yet intimate wedding we had. I absolutely recommend Ashley to anyone!"

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Quality time with our loved ones is what life is all about. I truly believe we don't get enough of it so every chance I have we soak up the old stories, the laughs, and the amazing eats our Mimi has to share.

Spending time with the family

Having spent my first five years of existence on the lake, water speaks to my heart. There's nothing more relaxing than sail while the sun dips below the horizon

Living in cajun country has its perks: the food is amazing and the friendships are genuine. I always make sure to fit in fellowship time at least once a week with some good friends of mine!

Beignets and hot coffee with close friends

There's nothing I can't stand more than cold toes. So if I'm not in my bed, my feet are covered in my warm slippers and I'm taking in a chapter or two of the Good Book. 

Curled up with the bible and my furry slippers.

Half the time this goes great. The other times we have to order pizza because dinner is charred or has a weird taste thanks to an ingredient swap I thought would be amazing. Nonetheless I love trying new foods, even if it ends up being a total bust!

ON off days YOU’LL FIND ME

IF I HAD TO DESCRIBE THIS BUSINESS IN THREE WORDS, THEY WOULD BE CLASSIC, EMOTIVE AND HOSPITABLE.

Two albums to be exact. Growing up we had these large, maroon books. They were both filled with glimpses of a time before my existence, experiences beyond my imagination, and laughter that brought warmth to my heart. 

I'd sit for hours perusing these albums. I'd gaze in wonder at my grandmother touring the coast of Ireland, my family walking across the edge of stone mountain and enjoying the waterfalls. Christmases spent with smiles, travels filled with joy. These little glimpses of history are what pushed me to pursue this career. That photo of my sweet Maw Maw Lynn and Papa holding me as a baby still hangs in my office to remind me of what matters: artfully preserving your memories for generations to come. 

it all began with an album.
