Ashley started her photography business in 2017. Focusing primarily
at that time on families, she came across a posting on social media
for photographers to capture photos at a local animal shelter. She has
always been extremely passionate about animal rescue and animal
welfare so she responded to the post and the rest is history.
She has been photographing pets now for over 3 years and from her
work with animal welfare and rescue, as well as from personal experience,
(having owned 3 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats), she knows first hand the
impact our animals make on our lives. Her mission for every session is to
create a time capsule of memories, love and friendship that you will have
for a lifetime and more.
In her spare time, she continues to volunteer weekly at
The Animal Protection Society of Durham by taking photos of their
adoptable dogs and also helps run their social media. She is also part of
their Walk For the Animals and Tails at Twilight Committees in addition to
being a Shelter Sponsor.
In addition to volunteering with APS, she is a member of Heartsspeak
and also volunteers with other local organizations to help photograph
She also enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband
and their two dogs, Shasta and Ollie (who is an APS alum!).
