My name is Ashley. I'm just out here trying to be the best photographer I can be.
Born and raised in the Central Valley of California, after high school I moved to study painting and photography and received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. I then moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where I began to pursue a career in marketing and social media strategy, honing my skills in the captured image and rediscovering my deep need for sunny California weather.
Today, I'm back in Modesto, CA, where I use my photos to tell stories. Whether I'm capturing a wedding day, a family outing, a product, or brand, my mission is the same: create authentic images and tell the whole story.
I'm a rebel at heart; I learned the rules at art school and now I'm always down to break them. Also down to hop fences, road trip, climb trees, and end a photoshoot covered in dirt/ocean water/ etc. I became a full time photographer because I wanted to live life on my terms, and what I deliver is simple: I follow the light, laugh a lot, and see every person and thing I photograph as beautiful, so that you can too.
