The Art of Healing is my passion project. We all wear scars in one form or another. Some have survived pain that left behind a visible reminder of their journey. Others have walked paths that left less visible scars, but they are felt just as deeply. Still others wear beautiful reminders of a body that has shifted and changed alongside a soul. Whatever your journey...whatever mark it left behind...I am passionate about capturing the beauty and strength that has brought you thus far, and the tenacity that will continue to move you forward.
If you're wondering what sets me apart from the other photographers out there, it's this. For me, this isn't just photography. It's about making every woman, every family, every child on the other side of my lens feel beautiful. It's about creating a space that allows you, or your family, or your partner to see themselves as whole, as worthy, as powerful, as more than enough.
I am honored to do the work that I do, and it is my privilege to work with you to capture memories that will last a lifetime and beyond. Whether it's a family session, a maternity session, or a session to celebrate your strength and resolve on any given journey, I'm here to make this one of the most meaningful investments you'll ever make. No matter who you are, no matter what your story. there is space for you here, and we'll work together to capture the beautiful details of this current chapter.
“The approval and validation of others will never rival the raw power that comes from the approval and validation of self. It is by loving yourself that you step into your fullest potential.”
"I have been lucky enough to have 2 of my pregnancies and many family photos captured by Ashley. Every time that email pops up that our photos are available to view I am blown away by what I see. Beyond the beautiful photos, are the phone calls/texts/FaceTimes to see our reactions to her hard work. She pours every ounce of herself into her work and created images of moments in my life I might not ever get back, but I get to reflect on forever and I can't thank her enough for that."
"In my 37 years on this earth and countless photography sessions, I have never felt so comfortable, so beautiful, and so happy then I have working with Ashley. What she does is pure magic. I only wish I found her sooner! She is the absolute best. Thank you!"
"I have been using Ashley as my photographer for many years now. Her passion for her work is unmatched. She always makes you feel comfortable in any setting and always shows patience in those crazy family sessions! She has done a variety of pictures for me (maternity, baby, family, etc.) and always have been so happy with my photo memories! Ashley is the best!"
"Thank you so, so much for beautifully capturing our family during our scheduled Christmas mini session! You seem to have a light that shines from within and I believe that is a gift which helps you find the light in your subjects. We simply could not be more pleased with how all of the pictures turned out. These are truly images we will cherish forever."
"Ashley has the warmest and kindest soul of anyone I know. She's done our engagement photos, an (she wrote boudoir, but I am not sure if I should change it since I am trying to stay away from that terminology) intimate shoot for me, maternity photos, family photos, you name it! She has been able to watch our love grow into a family and we will always go other for our photos."
