behind the lens
Welcome! I’m Ashley – and I’m so glad you stopped by to learn a little more about me!
My love of photography began as a very young child. It probably had something to do with a fisherprice camera, which then lead to me saving my allowance and buying a real camera at 6 years old. At a young age, I became fascinated with the world in front of me, and the people in it. I love that every human experience is unique. I also loved looking at old family photographs – I still do! There is something to be said about making a moment stand still for generations to see.
After studying Criminal Justice for a few years at the University of Winnipeg, I decided it was time to pursue my love affair with cameras. I enrolled in the fulltime diploma program at Prairieview School of Photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I graduated in June 2012. Developing my skills, technique and personal style was glorifying, though admittedly, ever changing – as I continue to learn new things.
Over the last few years, I have photographed numerous weddings, events, families, newborns, and many other special moments. I am grateful for every client who has invited me to share in their special moments, and for allowing me the opportunity to pursue my passion and do what I love!
When not photographing these treasured moments for my clients, I spend my time hanging out with my fiance Barry & our dog Tikka. Together, we enjoy doing outdoor activities like hiking and camping, going for bike rides, canoe trips, and ofcourse, cheering on the Winnipeg Jets! We also love to travel, and together we have travelled coast to coast in Canada. I also love the company of our family & friends.
