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.

sneak peek {K}

We made an attempt to get this adorable idea from the Mom for this little guys 6 months session. He has just started sitting up and his mom wanted this creative idea to capture this milestone!

It took about 5 seconds for him to realize he was sitting in a bowl of sticky Cheerios... 
We didn't have time to perfect this adorable idea....

IN LOVING MEMORY of JIMMER ... family {R} and senior {M}

FINALLY posting this 
(from several months ago)

This is a very special family! My husband coached this young man a couple of years, now a graduate from high school he is headed to BYU to begin his college years. 
We incorporated things he enjoys and captured him. 

One of the things that makes this family so AMAZING.... 
We met this family a little over two years ago. They were pregnant with their fifth child, a son, that was diagnosed in utero with Trisomy 18. 
There are varying degrees, but their diagnosis was fatal. They knew he would not survive even if he made it to delivery. 
Because of their faith and belief that life begins at conception they chose LIFE for their baby. 
And waited. 
only to lose him on February 15, 2012. 
But for those who know them, this did not change who they are, but rather their resolve to put their faith is something stronger than themselves. 

It was a testimony to witness such strength. So this post is 
... in loving memory of JIMMER

family {C} and 1 year

Another HOT session in Houston humidity...
this one began at 8:15am and we were sweating within 15 minutes.
once again the weather did not keep us from having a great time. This is one GORGEOUS family. How can it not go well?!?!
I don't think we will plan to meet in July again, but now that its over we can enjoy these amazing moments captured.
Celebrating the one year and many years gone by without family portraits. ...
2013 a time to celebrate
