Hi, I’m Ashlee, born and raised amongst the rolling hills of Marin County. I’m a wife to the most brilliant man I’ve ever met and a mother to three active, loving little boys. I’m also a photographer and have had a camera in my hands constantly for half of my life now. I’m self taught after traveling around the world and living abroad in Spain, Scotland, and China in my twenties with my now husband.
While in China for two years, I so desperately wanted to convey what our life was like to all our friends and family and so my pictures became the illustrations of our stories. Upon our return to the States, I had originally planned to go to Nursing school, however I was truly taken aback to be receiving inquiries from friends to take their photos and thus began my business in 2013. And now I constantly juggle between holding my boys and my camera in my hands, providing others with the memory of their life and how beautiful it is.

“Ashlee’s work speaks for itself: elegant, timeless, candid, and stunning. Aside from being a joy to work with, Ashlee is a master of her craft; her use of light takes my breath away, and she can capture someone‘s spirit like she’s known them her whole life. She engages my family in a manner that doesn’t feel staged; we can be playful, natural, and relaxed. There’s no pressure, and that comfortable atmosphere is reflected in her work.
I cannot express the gratitude we feel every year when our photos come back. Sifting through photographs that we will cherish for a lifetime brings a joy to my heart that is indescribable. Photos are forever, and we’re so fortunate to have found someone as talented as Ashlee to capture our precious moments in time that pass too quickly. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
