Jessie is one of my all-time favorite people to photograph! Not only is she a dear friend, but she photographs like a dream! I didn’t think we were going to be able to top Jessie’s first maternity shoot, at Looking Glass Falls, but I was wrong. Jessie rented a fabulous butterfly gown, from Olivia’s Gowns, […]

This maternity session, at Jetton Park, was incredibly beautiful! I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah and Kyle last year for their engagement session and I immediately knew that they were extra special! Their engagement session was the coldest I’ve ever done – high winds and in the low 20s! Thank goodness, their maternity session […]

There’s just something so sweet and intimate about a mountain maternity session! Brianna and Michael’s maternity session, at Morse Park, was truly breathtaking! These two posed effortlessly in front of the camera and they should have been models! They will be welcoming a baby boy very soon and I can’t wait to see Brianna and […]

A windy day in Lake Lure made for the most beautiful maternity session! Lyndsay and Larkin are a past couple of mine, so I was elated when they asked if I would do their maternity session! Let me tell you, Lyndsay is just as stunning as she was on her wedding day!! This sweet couple […]

This maternity session, at the NC Arboretum, is extra special to me! I had the pleasure of photographing Giselle and Peter’s wedding a few years ago and they have become dear friends of mine! So, of course, I was a little emotional during this session! Giselle just keeps getting more and more beautiful and she […]

When Ashley reached out to me about a maternity session at Looking Glass Falls, you know I couldn’t refuse! She and her husband came all the way from Georgia for this session and even brought along their sweet basset hounds! It was the most beautiful day and Ashley looked incredible in her green gown! After […]

Cheyenne’s maternity session was so beautiful and whimsical!  Her first maternity session with me was during freezing temperatures and high winds.  Her second may have still been windy, but at least it was warm! When she was pregnant with her first child, she told me that she wanted to do some river shots with her […]

This woodsy maternity session melts my heart!  I’ve been doing portraits for Hailey and her sweet family for many years and I feel like I’ve been able to watch her grow up!  Hailey is not only beautiful, but she is also kind and smart!  She is going to make the most incredible mother and I […]

I always get a little sad leaving wedding days, not knowing when I’ll get to work with my sweet couples again.  So, of course, when my couples reach out to me about capturing another milestone in their lives, I could jump for joy! I photographed Dixie and Chayce’s beautiful wedding four years ago and it […]

Almost three years ago, Sierra and Dakotah got married at Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard.  They will be welcoming their first baby in October and I’m so excited to meet him!  When it came time for the maternity session, it was only fitting that we do it at the place where it all started!  I’ve gotten […]

HEY THERE!  I'M ASHLEY!

I'm a small-town, North Carolina wedding photographer, and a full-time spaghetti enthusiast!  If I'm not behind my camera or computer, you'll be able to find me at the barn with my horses or in the garden - I'm pretty sure that I'm a wannabe plant lady at heart!

The blog is here to not only showcase weddings and portraits, but also to be a resource for clients and other photographers. You'll find session and photography tips, style guides, and so much more!  If there's something specific you're interested in, shoot me a message - I'd love to hear all about it!
