Every scar is a mark of survival and holds a story of strength that deserves to be told.

The art of healing.

The Art of Healing is about celebrating the entirety of ourselves. It's about celebrating our journeys and the marks they left behind. Why? Because these marks stand as proof that we're here, we're alive, and we're stronger than when we began. 

To tell stories of strength, of resilience, of beauty forged through  pain...that is my honor and passion. 

 “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Art of Healing is my response to a world that too often sends messages of shame and unworthiness. With every session my mission is to create a space where you feel empowered and fully capable of stepping into your strength. It is my honor to show you what I see on the other side of my lens...someone who is strong, beautiful, bold, and brave...someone who is above all else, worthy.

 "In this world, there is no force equal to a woman determined to rise." -W.E.B Dubois

"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."

"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!"

Amy Weaver

"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."

Shelby Morris

"WOOOW!!! I am so blown away!!! I seriously needed this shoot in my life. It feels so good to get beautiful and have someone empower you and capture powerful photos. I appreciate you so very much!"
