As a personal brand photographer in Baltimore County, Ashley uses an educational approach that teaches entrepreneurs how to show up as the face of their brand with confidence.
Today, I'm proud to own my business, work with clients who inspire me, and most of all, I have a legacy to pass down to my kids. I'm motivated to show up as the face of my brand, which has afforded me many amazing opportunities. It’s why I’m so passionate about teaching my clients the power of personal branding and encouraging them to be proud of themselves and their business.
Trying one last attempt, I hired a business mentor who taught me about branding. Before this point, I had never sat down to develop a brand before, but everything finally made sense. It was as if the fog lifted, and my message and my purpose became clear.
I became lost. I didn't know who I wanted to serve, where I fit into my market, or what I wanted to offer. My inward confusion reflected outward to my business. I had close-to-zero bookings and found myself doing a lot of favors for friends. Feeling frustrated, I was ready to quit. Until…
When I opened my photography business in 2013, I felt empowered by the idea of having my own business. Here I was, building something for myself and my family — and taking my future into my own hands! But as the months went on, the excitement wore off because...
I don't share this story for applause but rather to show you that even if you're experiencing "rock bottom" in your business, or you simply want to raise the bar in your business, there’s always a solution.

LET’S MAKE HISTORY
LET’S DO THIS THING

As an educator, it’s ingrained in my process to equip my clients with the knowledge they need to understand not just what we’re doing but why we’re doing it, too.
Branding photoshoots should provide you with professional images you love... But my work doesn't stop there. I approach every photoshoot as an opportunity to provide you with an empowering experience that leaves you feeling confident to show up as the face of your brand — today and years down the line.
Although it’s strategic to capture foundational images (like headshots), I also prioritize taking images that showcase your authentic personality and brand values. On-brand imagery is more than cliché photos of you smiling with a coffee cup. They should be as unique as you.
I know that trusting a “stranger” with some of the most important photos you’ll own can be challenging. It’s why I always take a relationship-first approach with the couples I work with — to make sure you feel comfortable letting your genuine self shine in front of my camera.
Recently engaged? Let's capture your electric connection. Just want to document your love? Let's craft photos you'll never want to put down. Want a physical heirloom you can preserve your love story in? I love making custom albums that you can hold, display, and cherish for years to come.
By taking the time to get to know you, your partner, and what makes your story unique, I’ll provide a custom experience that ensures you receive images that let you relive your most special moments for years to come.
