The Maternity Experience

First and foremost, congratulations on your new bundle of joy! Motherhood is a wild ride full of beautiful, messy, and unforgettable moments.

That's why it's crucial to freeze those special memories before they slip away. I completely understand how it feels like you'll be pregnant forever, but trust me, it'll be over in the blink of an eye. As a mother of two myself, I know firsthand how quickly this incredible time passes.

Let's capture this joyful experience and showcase the stunning, expectant mama you are! I'm thrilled to help you plan your dream maternity session and make it a reality.

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!

My family and I had the pleasure of having a newborn photo and a maternity photo session with Ashley. She is professional, kind, listens, and executes specific photos that you want while maintaining her style of photography that is desirable (and the reason why I chose her in the first place)! I was very impressed with how swiftly and softly she worked with our newborn to get the shots that I desired. Her experience and quality of work during the sessions and of her photography is worth your time and money. I have only positive things to say. My family and I will be returning in the future! -The Bennett- Snow Family

I cannot say enough great things about Ashley - she is absolutely amazing at what she does!! We are so pleased with the outcome of our maternity and newborn photos.
Not only is she very sweet & professional but she made us feel very comfortable at both shoots as we are not really "photo" people (lol). She made the overall process so easy as well. Our photos came out absolutely breathtaking and we are so happy we decided to have them done.

If you need professional photos taken you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much Ashley. We cannot thank you enough


Ashley took our maternity and newborn photos and they turned out wonderful! I loved how the maternity wardrobe was included, since buying a maternity dress for a photo session was not something I wanted to add to my to do list during pregnancy. She brought multiple different dresses for me to try on at the beginning of our session, and I ended up choosing 3 for the session. The location in Laguna Beach was beautiful and we lucked out with a pretty sunset. She directed us on how to pose and makes you feel comfortable during the session.

For our newborn session, Ashley lets you use her maternity wardrobe if you'd like. We chose the posed newborn session with a few family poses. She spent a few hours posing our newborn. Since it was December, Ashley also added a Christmas photo to our session!

Ashley was early for both sessions, is easy to communicate with, and timely with her photo gallery delivery. Highly recommend reaching out to Ashley if you are looking for a maternity and/or newborn photographer!

I came across Ashley's photography service on Facebook, and I was immediately drawn to her natural and warm photography style. When I got in touch with her, she was very friendly and answered emails in a very timely manner. She also accommodated my request to have the baby session taken much later, which I greatly appreciate. Our maternity session was done at the beach, and Ashley was very efficient and got many gorgeous shots within an hour. I vividly remember that weekend she was working while two of her family members were very ill. I respect her professionalism in working even though she was under emotional distress and still delivering all the pictures on time. Honestly, she hid her emotions so well I wouldn't have known if I didn't follow her on Instagram. Our baby/family session also went really well. Ashley was again very efficient and managed to take many pictures of my baby looking at the camera. We are very happy with the way the pictures turned out. I also love that Ashley has a variety of outfits you can choose from, and you can even try them on ahead of time. Overall, we had a great experience, and I would definitely recommend Ashley to any pregnant mamas who want their special moments captured beautifully and gracefully.
