Oh! Hey there, I am AshLee, and I am so glad you are here!

I would like to start off by declaring my love for COFFEE! Iced coffee, hot coffee, lattes, coffee ice cream... you name it! I know you probably thought I was going to start off by talking about my love for photography, but I think that is a given so let's get real! I treat my friends like family, and I wear my heart on my sleeve. I love naps, traveling, and talking about my goals and dreams! I have 2 kiddos, MadaLynn and Beckett, a WONDERFUL husband, John and the sweetest mini goldendoodle, Puddles, and the craziest mini goldendoodle Ruby. I love God, pickles, tomatoes, fresh flowers, and Grey's Anatomy and I dislike olives, hazelnut creamer, most soda, and being cold!

I am an award winning photographer from Illinois, but I am open to travel wherever the wind takes me! I love photographing newborns, children, families, weddings, and seniors! I am a nurse. I have worked my way from being a CNA to RN, BSN. I've worked in the Operating Room for 12 years and switched to Administration for 3 before taking the leap to photograph awesome humans like yourself!

I am sure your life is crazy like mine, so just know it doesn’t mean your family photos have to be. I love to make sessions fun, entertaining, and full of real smiles!

Capturing Memories

Harnessing light is the inspiration for my images. No matter if we are shooting in the studio or outdoors, a wedding to newborns I find joy in creating the images you will cherish a lifetime. If you are looking for a fun, creative, and personable photographer to bring out the natural smiles of you and your loved ones, well look no further. I am here for you!




“Ashlee was a great addition to our big day!!! I loved the way her pictures looked and her style. Covid made things tricky the last few months before the wedding, but she tackled any change or question I had thrown her way.
She is creative and fun and makes you feel like a million
bucks! I would highly recommend her for your
picture needs!”
