Welcome to photographybyASHLEY

I hope you all feel as welcome here as you would on a front porch, in Boerne Texas, sippin' on a glass of ice cold sweet tea. Yep that's right, I am a Texas country girl!

This blog will be a place you can come to get to know me as a photographer as well as a person. Updates on my latest sessions as well as a sneak peek into my home.

Please visit often and feel free to send me a note. I would love to hear from you.

Girl time!

For those who do not know me personally let me explain how precious girl time is...I have four sons!!!! So altogether I live with 5 bodies overflowing with testoterone. Although they are still young they never change, full of noises, tooting gets uproarious laughter, falling is comedic around our house, cars are covering my entire floor, why do my clothes need to match??? and anything and everything is turned into a weapon!
I had a fun session today to capture a newborn, she is 2 weeks old and has a big sister not quite 2. They are such sweet little girls! I did not spend the average 4 hrs (recommended) at the session so although we captured some special moments I was not able to get a great picture of the girls together....Big sis wanted to poke little sis's eyes, which made Mommy slightly nervous, wonder why?? Newborns are not all that easy...they just lay there which is both the pro and the con. They can't run away but at the same time what to do with them becomes a challenge! So I am excited I had a chance to practice on this sweet baby and her Mommy was super flexible and understanding!!!

So you do not think I have entirely quit the photography business, I am still a photographer and if my schedule allows I will be available. But it will not be at the will of my clients for this season. I will not make any attempts to advertise right now or open doros to schedule, but I hope and pray for clientts to continue to contact me!

A surrender in my life!

Well folks, sometimes unexpected events come up in our lives and we can only TRUST in the One who has the world in His hand. I really love photography but the Lord has asked me to give it to Him for a season, I do not know how long or in what capacity but for now I will no longer have a website!
I will still take pictures, and schedule minimal sessions, as the Lord leads and I would love to hear from you all. I can only say I will be at His knees surrending all that I am and all that I have waiting for Him to lead me in this area. I cannot guarantee a session but as the Lord leads I will continue to follow His bidding. So if HE should open the door for me to schedule the session I will obey!
Thank you all for your support and prayers!!!

A new story....

I had a session with a wonderful family in January. The Denton Family! They were easy to work with and we found some fun places to capture their memories. Here is my first version of a storyboard for them....
