BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT Ashley

Ever-focused on capturing timeless and genuine images; found in moments of connection and authenticity. 

I am a born and raised Michigander, and the mitten state will always hold my heart. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me snuggled up on the couch with a good book or taking leisurely walks down the nearest Main St. in search of the best tacos and margs. As much as I love my work, nothing beats quality time with my loved ones - they're my ultimate inspiration!
