Family & Motherhood Photographer







Your BFF photographer in Socal

Hi, I'm Ashley


am so excited you're here. I'm an Emotive, Storytelling  Motherhood + Newborn + Family photographer located in sunny Southern California. I service Long Beach, Orange County, and the South Bay areas. 

I simply love the raw, in-between moments; they tell the best story of your life with your loved ones. I can’t wait to capture your story!


Say Hello

Initially, my photography journey began as a means to capture all the precious moments of my newborn baby. 11 years later, it has become something I am truly passionate about, as well as, a continued way to collect all the special moments for myself and others. My husband is my biggest supporter; not only was he my high school sweetheart, but he continues to be my favorite person to this day. Together we have built a loving family with two children and two energy-filled Doodles (that keep us on our toes). In addition to photography, I am passionate about homeschooling, worshiping the Lord, and traveling to see new places. I enjoy capturing every moment with a picture and am lovingly known as the paparazzi among my family and friends. I look forward to getting to know you and your loved ones! Thanks so much for browsing my site; I look forward to capturing your next event!

How could this sweet family of mine not be at the top of the list?!?! I love watching my sweet babies grow up, and doing life with my amazing husband. I love the life we have built together for the last 21 years.

The beach is my happy place. It's where I find peace, freedom, and can breathe in the fresh ocean air. I love everything about the beach, whether it is playing in the waves with my kids, or having a bonfire with family and friends. The beach is my happy place, and especially this little hidden gem in South Orange County.

My Favorite Things

Ashley is absolutely amazing to work with! Not only is she talented and professional but she's also very personable and easy to get along with. She was more than accommodating for my family as we had to reschedule a few times due to unforeseen circumstances. One of the greatest things about her is her quick turn around! I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone!

Ashley is so fun and sweet and her passion for capturing the unforgettable moments in your life shines through in her gorgeous images! Her work is stunning!! I highly recommend her for your portrait session!

Ashley is such a sweet person who really has a passion for what she does. She captures life's precious moments flawlessly and I especially love when candid moments are never missed. You will love working with her.

Ashley Nicole Photography is professional, kind, and produces gorgeous images. Her communication is awesome and she goes above and beyond for her clients!

Ashley photographed my wedding and I am so incredibly lucky to have found her! My original photographer bailed (I'm glad she did) and Ashley and her mom were kind enough to take over with only a short notice. When a family emergency happened a week before the wedding, Ashley didn't hesitate to reschedule to our new date. And finally.. the photos came out AMAZING! I can't wait to have family photos taken by Ashley in the future.
