Each season of life we walk through is marked by countless moments, big and small. From the joy of new beginnings to the quiet comfort of familiar routines, I believe in preserving every emotion, connection, celebration, achievement and milestone -- and then painting the walls of your home with those moments.

As your friend behind the camera, I strive to get to know you and all the things -- your family, your business, your dreams, your challenges and your successes. That more personal connection helps create a relaxed and genuine atmosphere, allowing your true personality and relationships to shine through. 

From maternity shoots to family portraits, from graduations to engagements, and everything in between, I'm honored to know you, grow with you, cheer you on...

I had a session with Ashley and our three little ones. Ashley was fantastic with them. I couldn’t believe the images she captured with them going in all different directions. She was completely unfazed by the chaos and perfectly encapsulated my kid’s personalities. I’m beyond thrilled with the photos!

I took head shoots for the first time with Ashley Kristen Photography, and I was blown away by the results! Ashley was such a sweet, calming presence for my first time in a couple years behind the camera. If you are looking for a photography that is close and willing to make you look your best, get in touch with her!


As a first time mom I really wanted newborn photos that felt authentic and not staged, but was also incredibly nervous about the whole process (being just a few weeks postpartum). Ashley did a video chat with me a couple months in advance so I knew what to expect, and then came to our house for photos when we decided we were ready. She really made the whole process so easy and comfortable. I am so grateful she captured the beginnings of our little family (including the pets) and am looking forward to working with her in the future!

Ashley is simply incredible. She truly has a gift for capturing the most beautiful moments. She chose a lovely location and gave us choices between a few great time options. She suggested gorgeous spots and recommended poses, but none of our shots look posed because of her skill at making everyone - including our 3 year old, comfortable.
