"To be human is to have a collection of memories that tells you who you are and how you got there."

Who Is Behind The Lens?

Hi there! I'm Ashley. A few things to know about me...

I married my high school sweetheart, who you will see graciously helping build crazy ideas I have: just checkout our mini cabin! We have four incredible boys who have taught me about love, patience, and the art of laughing your way through it.
I love rodeos. Horses, cows, and leather make this girl smile.
The ocean is my happy place. My soul finds peace on the shoreline.
I love my people, my animals, my plants, and my work endlessly.
Nature is a gift meant to be explored & embraced. Let's get out there!

Photography isn't a job. it's a passion.

Why Choose Me To Capture Your Memories?

Every year seems to go by faster than the one before. I see this in my own life raising teens, and one still under 10. I see this with my grandparents who I soak in every laugh, sweet gaze, and cherished story told. When these moments are gone we can't get them back. Sometimes the memories fade, and all we have left are the photographs we hold so dear. I know how irreplaceable these moments are, and capturing them is something I am deeply passionate about.

The Story Behind The Logo


Back in the 1960's, my great-grandfather traveled out west. He came home with these beautiful horns: tooled leather wrapping the center. These horns were then given to my grandparents, who had them displayed in my grandfather's "artist room." As a child, I loved being in this space surrounded by old books, antiques, paint, various creative projects, a very old globe... and these horns. A few years ago my grandfather asked me if I'd like to have the treasure my great-grandfather brought home so many decades before. Today, the cherished item that I loved so long ago hangs above our TV. I've told my husband many times, "in case of fire, grab the horns first!"


These horns have inspired my love of leatherworking & all things western.

My belief is that every person should be framed in the moments they’ve felt the most loved and cared for.
autism is a part of our lives. it has helped shape us, challenged us, & made us the family we are today.

Experience With Sensory Needs


Raising a child on the autism spectrum or with sensory needs can present challenges when it comes to new people & new environments. Our family is no stranger to this. With many years of experience navigating how to handle new situations with a calm, nurturing, and patient approach, I would love the opportunity to discuss how I can make your experience a positive one that you'll look back on fondly.

Odds & ends

Old country roads, streams, overgrown fields, and the forest are some of my favorite places to work.
