About Me


Hiiii!  My name is Ashley and I’m a newbie photographer in the Twin Cities area.

Random facts about me:

  • I may be a “grown up” but I’m still a kid at heart.
  • I could eat M&Ms every hour of every day and never get sick of them.
  • I hate to admit it but I am horribly addicted to reality TV or just TV shows in general. I sometimes wonder if my DVR is going to go into system overload… oops!
  • My parents are my inspiration every single day.
  • My eyes are two different colors, one is blue and the other is green. They change depending on what I wear, but if you look really close you can even see a little yellow in one of them.
  • I love celebrity gossip, yes I know it’s a horrible addiction but I just can’t help it!
  • Most of my days are spent with two amazing little ladies whom I have the pleasure of being called their nanny, or as C & E say their “big sister”.
  • I love every aspect of photography; capturing moments between loved ones, seeing the happiness someone has in their smile and just the simplicity of life.
  • I named my photography business after my brothers;  J is for Jesse who is two years younger than me and Tyler is my brother who passed away from Leukemia when he was eight. This way they will always be a part of me.

    I am just speechless and so happy I was blessed to be a part of your life, Jesse’s life, and Tyler’s life. Those days are some of my life’s greatest memories and I will cherish them and you all forever! Oh, I can never forget your mom and dad, they too have always been an inspiration to me as well.

    Love Always,

    xoxo Stef

    Finally got time to look at all the great photos – so hard to pic favorites when they are all so good. You really do capture the sparkle. Love all the little ones.

    Ashley! Although I frequent your website, I am still learning the new buttons. This is why I do not create websites (I’ll leave that to you)!

    Your pictures are beautiful, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your business card, and the new logo. Some day, if I’m blessed with kids, you better be there to share in some of those moments! Can’t wait to see you, hopefully very soon! Love u so much, you’re so wonderful and I am SO proud of you for doing all of this and working so hard. You’re amazing!

    I have seen your work via a few friends on facebook and I really like your pictures. I was also wondering how much the digital package is.

    Thanks so much

    Hi, I was given your name by a couple different people and think your work is great. I am also a photographer and have been looking for someone to shoot our wedding Aug. 28th. I am wondering if you have availability and what you charge for full coverage with the files.
