Let me introduce myself...

the Baltimore Area Lifestyle Family & Brand Photographer  who  likes  to  keep  it  real  &  fun, too.

My name is Ashley, but you can call me Apples if you'd like. It's a name I was given as a child, and it just kind of stuck with me. I was born in the WV mountains in a tiny coal town known as Coal City. which is the definition of a "map-dot". I have always felt I belonged in the city though. Baltimore became my home far before my physical home was here, when I met & fell in love with a Baltimorean who was living in WV. On my first trip here, he made me love this city, just like he made me love him. That man is now my husband Chris & also my BFF. We have three Siberian Huskies who are our entire world. We all live together, in a little hundred year old cape cod in Baltimore City. Life isn't a fairy tale, but it is MY happily every after. I would take this real life of mine any day over a story book, because sometimes reality is better than fiction.

I am a crafty person who loves anything art. My favorite TV Show is American Horror Story. I eat way too much candy. I still watch cartoons. I drink too much Pepsi and coffee. You never know what color my hair may be next. I am a VERY proud Aunty of four gorgeous gals and two handsome boys. I am a daddy's girl & my momma is my best pal.

I will always just be me & all I need is for you to just be you. Lifestyle photography and branding are all about being yourself. That is the person your children will remember & it is the person your clients want to work with.. Just be you & what we can do together will be beYOUtiful. Too corny? Yeah, sometimes I do that. 

I am a photographer by trade, but I like to consider myself a visual story teller. My job is to tell your story. The story you want to tell the world  might be about the birth of a new baby, a homecoming, an adoption or simply a story of family love. It might be a story about a professional badass who knows her ideal client, wants some bomb social media photos and isn't afraid to be authentic. Whatever your story may be, if you are looking for someone to tell it in a "this is life" journalistic way, I am your gal.
