I'm all about intentionality and telling your story as it is at this point in time.  The raw, messy, simple, and beautiful moments that make up your real life together. 
     Let's explore your favorite hiking trail, gather around a campfire, make pancakes in your kitchen, harvest food from your garden, feed the animals on your farm, or snuggle up a cabin in the woods.

This is your heritage and history, and it is worthy of being documented!
      I am currently available for lifestyle sessions, and am booking 2022 and 2023 weddings and elopements!

This girl loves a good cup of joe, adventuring with her family on camping and hiking trips around Minnesota (let's be honest though - most of my adventures consist of a Target run with kids in tow), and learning to live more intentionally through minimizing "stuff" and maximizing quality time with those I love.

MORE ABOUT me

                  The Why      That Fuels Me

family,
  faith, my mom

"My mother never gave me any idea that I couldn't do what I wanted to do, or be whomever I wanted to be... I don't know if she realized that the person I most wanted to be like was her." Gilmore Girls

I was blessed with a short 25 years with my mom, before she passed away due to cancer.  She modeled what it was to be a strong woman, mother, and daughter of God, and selflessly gave her all for her family. She was my biggest supporter, and always encouraged me to reach for my biggest dreams and put everything into the gifts God gave me.

Each day I strive to be half the mom she was, trust God through the mountains and valleys of life, and really be intentional with those I love. Through the challenging past few years of loss, I have found a new perspective and joy for capturing all moments more emotionally and authentically.  These moments that can be so fleeting, will mean so much to us down the road, and could become a true piece of comfort and joy.

DETAILS

WORK

recent

There are not enough kind, genuine, HONEST words that could describe Ashley and her beautiful work as a photographer.  Having only met and communicated for a week prior to our wedding, Devon and I clicked SO well with Ashley. She made us feel comfortable, confident, and kept us laughing all day!  She is so good at feeling out the vibe of a couple and just KNOWS what poses and ideas will work for them and what won’t. I truly believe God took extra time to craft her heart and her talents, and you will not find a better photographer or friend to be a part of your wedding day, or family shoot, or newborn session.
5 stars is not a high enough rating for this woman! I promise you won’t be dissatisfied with Ashley’s incredible work!!

Devon & Ashton  /  wedding

Seriously the most thoughtful and detail-oriented wedding photographer we could’ve asked for! From navigating engagement photos, wedding planning (and replanning thanks to covid), Ashley was so communicative, patient, and accommodating through it all! Her photos captured so many wonderful memories of our wedding day, and each single shot was so artfully done. I could not recommend her enough!

Luke & Annie  /  wedding

Ashley was amazing with our large group! Love her editing style and she was great on communication of when we should expect our photos too. I've had her take family photos for a couple years now and she's the best!

Olivia  /  family

This lady is amazing! She captured our personalities so perfectly, was professional but fun, and our pictures couldn't be better!
