I shed a tear each year knowing I don’t have babies anymore. I love my big kids … but I know deep down, my life will never be more adorable than it was when they were little. You deserve photos of this. The sweetest time of your whole damn life. It’s a huge part of the reason I became a family photographer.
I want to let you hold on to time just a little longer.
I don’t want to photograph the magazine version of your life. I want to photograph you exactly as you are. Your perfectly imperfect story—no forced smiles or poses. My photos are simply a mirror, reflecting back to you the love and beauty that surrounds you all.
I want to give it to you.
The big question! I want you to know that I will never hide any pricing from you. That means what you see is what you get— period. There are no “sitting fees” or products purchase requirements. I pride myself in being transparent and offering pricing that makes sense. The average client investment is $1500-3000.
Scheduling a session is simple! You can check out the calendar to see available dates. You can also fill out the contact form, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available dates will be reviewed and I will find a date that best suits your schedule. All sessions are booked in The Woodlands at sunrise or sunset for ideal lighting. It is recommended to plan ahead, as weekends fill up several weeks in advance, but flexible weekday options are always available. We leave room around every reserved session to accommodate for weather.
As part of the planning process, you will be given exclusive access to choose from preferred locations in and around the Woodlands. All sessions take place outside, in The Woodlands/Spring areas. I have spent hours hiking and securing multiple spots that showcase the natural beauty of our city while remaining private.
Session times vary depending on the time of year and cloud coverage, but generally happen at sunrise or an hour before sunset.
After your date is booked, we will discuss all the fun things like locations, timing and of course wardrobe. I am available to help with planning and styling your session to make sure your vision comes to life and everyone looks amazing. Part of the personalized services offered includes a free, online styling guide, access to our growing studio wardrobe collection, as well as one-to-one time with your photographer to help put together outfits. See more examples of what other families have chosen to wear on my Instagram.
That is the beauty of lifestyle photography! No modeling experience is necessary! We will embrace the mood and feeling for the day, no matter what it is. Crazy kids running around? No problem. Sleepy toddler who just wants snuggles? Let’s do this! I am here to help guide you, prompt you for fun games and activities to do with your kids, and just spend unhurried time together. You don’t need to know how to “pose”. Instead, think about it like being directed. You may be asked to spin around in a field or even start a tickle fight. Every family is different but we meet you where you are at and help you look amazing through it all!
In order to achieve the colorful look Ashley is known for, sessions ideally require a sunny day. Overcast is not bad, it can actually create very evenly lit and wonderful photos. However, if it is going to be overcast and you prefer sunshine, you may be offered a reschedule date at no additional fee- depending on availability. If the weather is bad (extreme heat or cold, or rain/natural disaster), Ashley will contact you to find another day that will work for everyone’s schedule.
