My name is Ashley and I’m a maternity and newborn photographer here in Cleveland, OH.

I believe in photographing newborns naturally – the way their story began. In your belly, in the hospital, and at home surrounded by love. To me, babies are perfect just the way they are… no props or posing necessary.

I’m in love with home decor, reading, and watching “Friends” reruns. My days are fueled by coffee, checking things off my list, and Target runs 🙂 .

Why I Do What I Do

I feel like the most important thing for you to know about me is that I’m a Mom of 3 beautiful boys and that I’ve been where you are – on the verge of Motherhood.

I know that the journey to becoming a mother is not always easy and it’s rarely perfect… But, I also know that the journey is what makes holding your baby in your arms all the more beautiful.

Each of us Moms has our own story and our own journey and I would be honored to be the one to document yours. Having been there before – feeling those first kicks, hearing him cry for the first time, and bringing him home for the first time – those experiences help me to see which details are going to be the ones you’ll want captured forever. I’ll notice things like the way your baby wraps his little wrinkly hand around your finger or how he fits so perfectly snuggled up on your chest. I see those things because as a mother, those are the moments I want to remember forever, too.

What Else Should You Know About Me?

∙ After having 3 newborns of my own and photographing many others, I am highly experienced in handling and soothing newborns. You may even pick up a tip or two while I'm there!

∙ A former ER nurse with over 10 years experience, I will always ensure that your baby's safety is my top priority during our session.

∙ I believe that every mom should look and feel beautiful in her maternity and newborn photos. This is why I use light and angles to my advantage in ways that will flatter any and every new mom.

∙ I work hard behind the scenes so you don't have to. I know you're busy and I want this to be as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

∙ Photography is the job I never knew I always wanted. I LOVE what I do. I give my all at every session and I promise that passion will reflect in your final images.

When I'm Not Taking Pictures...

You'll most likely find me walking around my neighborhood with my kids, in the aisles of Target sipping on my coffee, watching "Friends" or "How I Met Your Mother" reruns with my hubby and my favorite craft brew, browsing home decor blogs, or cuddled up on the couch under a blanket with a good book.
