Hi, I’m Ash!

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know
me and my art. I LOVE pictures. I’m nostalgic. 

The camera is my tool of choice. I believe Black Lives Matter, love is love, no human
being is illegal, and that we need to destroy the patriarchy and save the planet.

My hair has grayed dramatically with 45 in office but amidst all the crazy in the
world, I am grateful to be in the business of documenting love and connection.
I witness so many moments of tender and loving care through this job and it
gives me hope for a better tomorrow.

Photography has long been a hobby for me, and I’ve always treasured old family
photographs and the rich stories they carry with them, but it wasn’t until I became
a mother that I became obsessed with the need to preserve and remember each
phase and detail of my family life. Motherhood feels like this amazing,
never-ending process of watching my daughter grow, evolve and come into her
own, but I also mourn how quickly time disappears and wish I could savor those
moments with my baby just a little longer. But herein lies my passion for
photography. I can literally freeze moments in time!

Camera alongside, my life is mostly spent with my two favorite humans: my
partner and daughter. Mountains are our sacred place and thus my daughter’s
namesake. I am happiest in wild and beautiful places. I love to hike, camp, travel,
and explore new places with my family and of course my camera too. Capturing
people, the wonders of this marvelous planet, and how we all fit into this
awe-inspiring world makes my heart sing.

Clients often say that their experience working with me is a fun, easy and
memorable family adventure, often in one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s epic
locations. I am a keen observer of life and can find the subtle beauty and emotive
connections – all while your family hangs outs and enjoys time together. I love
sharing this passion by documenting sacred family memories and working with
wanderlusting, soulful, earth-loving, adventurous, intimate, fun and connected
families. Each stage of family life is so fleeting. I know I never feel like I have
enough time, and the years seem to pass far too quickly, but there is a comfort in
knowing my photography will continue to serve as a time machine transporting
me back to what I long to preserve and remember. I look forward to creating
treasured heirlooms and forever memories with you and your family!
