I’m ready to begin designing my dream shoot!


I had an incredible experience! I felt so beautiful and empowered throughout the shoot. Ashleigh not only has an amazing gift with photography, she is also very charismatic and passionate about her work and really cares about those she photographs.


Mother & Wife

She made me feel so comfortable and sexy with her positive feedback, focus, direction, and enthusiasm that I just felt like I could blossom in front of the camera. She was very timely about getting back to me when we were setting up the time to shoot, she’s a great communicator which is so important! When I got the photos back I was beyond thrilled, they looked so good. Natural yet finished, not over edited, great framing and poses. I will cherish them forever.


I have truly never felt more at ease working with someone. She took her time with me to really understand that this shoot was not just for my husband but also for myself. … Thank you Ashleigh for being an explorer of beauty, an artist of the female form and for constantly making me laugh.



As soon as I sat down with Ashleigh and saw her amazing work, I knew she was the one I wanted to share this experience with. … When I saw the photos, I was completely blown away!


Ashleigh made me feel like a glamorous movie actress during the shoot. When I saw my photos, I was so happy. They exceeded my expectations. I really loved how the photos capture my spirit, as well as make my body look so great! It felt so good to be feeling sexy at 48!


I’m not comfortable in front of the camera and Ashleigh took care of those insecurities almost immediately. She is funny, sensitive, in control and has an incredible talent. … I look forward to doing a mother/daughter photo shoot with my girls. Thank you Ashleigh for being you and for teaching me that beauty is within and age is just a number.


Mother of four

I felt empowered after my boudoir shoot. I have had so many self-image issues and worries and I have never felt so confident and sexy! It gave me a whole new perspective. … Whenever I’m having a bad day and not feeling good about the way I look, I look back at these photos to remind myself that I’m beautiful in more ways than one.


Mother & Wife

I was hesitant and nervous to book a shoot but after talking with Ashleigh, I felt confident that she was the one to capture and preserve my special moments. I’m glad I did! The photos were the best I have ever had taken of me. There were even a few “money shots,” you know, the kind that rivals those of models!


I was incredibly nervous about giving my hubby the book, but wow was he surprised! He absolutely loved it! I don’t even think he noticed the nice watch I also gave him for a wedding gift, lol! I am so glad I decided to go through with this. My body will not be the same for a long while, since we are expecting our first little one soon! So it will be nice for me to look back at these photos. Thank you so much for everything, Ashleigh:) and a BIG thanks from the hubby too!





 I promise to create photographs that are so stunning they leave you breathless.

Still unsure about this experience? I promise this shoot is for you even if your head is screaming:

"I'm not photogenic"

It’s MY job to make you look amazing in photographs, not yours, and lucky for you that is my specialty!

"I don't like having my photo taken"

I promise to make the shoot not just comfortable but fun for you.

"I need to lose a few more pounds"

I will pose you & light you so you look jaw-droppingly hot, just as you are RIGHT NOW.

"I'm too old"

Ummmm, really? Women are like a fine wine and get better with age. I promise to show you your grace, elegance, allure through these photos.

"I've never done this before"

I promise that 96.935% (yes I’ve done the scientific math) of my clients were nervous first timers just like you, yet left the experience overjoyed.

"I really like digital images"

Want to share your photos on Facebook and make everyone green with envy? Good! Any image you purchase in print you also receive in digital format. We also have digital only personal branding packages.

"I'm on a tight deadline"

Although we typically book 6-8 weeks out, I have been able to work miracles get photos done with short notice. So reach out and let’s see what I can do for you!

"I can't afford it"

I work with clients with all budgets, I take credit cards, and I do offer payment plans.
