Why Choose AshD_Photography?

Capturing you and your beauty through a lens!


I have always had an interest in art of all forms. I love being able to share this love with others πŸ™‚

Throughout your session I will encourage you, support you, and help you feel confident! Being in front of a camera is not always easy, but I will ease that stress. My end goal is to become your friend & a support system in the years to come — because everyone can use a new friend!


“Ashley is super sweet and so lovely to work with! She has a warm and inviting personality that makes you feel very comfortable and confident, so important when having your pictures taken! She’s also a great choice for dance photography, given that she was a dancer herself for many years and is familiar with dance technique and form. Ashley’s wonderful, I highly recommend looking to her the next time you need some fun (and affordable!) pictures taken for any occasion!” — Erika

Dance Photography

Capturing your strength & love of this beautiful art form

Having been both a professional dancer & dance teacher of all ages, I know all about lines, the importance of pointed feet, and how to best accentuate the differing skills & abilities of all dancers!

I’ve worked with dozens of artists over the years to document their strength, progress, and love of dance. Each has had a unique set of strengths that I am beyond proud to capture. 


“Ashley is an amazing person, photographer, dancer, and friend!! She has an eye for catching the perfect shot, and she is so patient and fun to work with. One of my favorite things from our photo shoot was Ashley’s helpful hints and suggestions for poses.” — Mary

Portrait Photography

Your biggest moments captured!

Although I have a love of dance & dancers, I know that there are other special moments that individuals want captured. I have experience with people portraits, families, and maternity. Please reach out if this is more the service offering you are looking for & I can provide more information.


“Ashley is very easy and fun to work with. She takes extra time to make sure that images look great. My daughter had an amazing time. It was a very positive experience and we highly recommend Ashley as a photographer.” — Elena
