Meet me

I’m here to help you remember the earliest love-soaked days with your new baby. Those days when sleep feels like a long lost dream. Days and nights are a little fuzzy. But the love. The love is real and strong.

These are the days you can’t wait to put behind you, but you also want to hold onto forever. When your babe is the tiniest they will ever be. The days when their expressions change daily, their limbs stretch out, and they quickly outgrow all of those cute little newborn sleepers you couldn’t wait to put them in.

I'll help you remember all their lovely little details with minimalist + timeless photographs that you will cherish forever. Your baby will grow and change. But the memories we document together will forever be etched in your heart. And every time you pick up that beautiful newborn  album on your bookshelf to look through, you’ll tear up a bit reflecting back on the days you now barely remember. Even when they are old & moved out, you’ll always have these memories to look through to remember this sweet time. Your future self will thank you for making the investment now.

Ashlie has photographed my family twice now, and we are absolutely in love with all of our photos. We did a studio newborn session with my son, and then recently did a family outdoor session.

Her photographs are so beautiful and timeless. These are memories we are thankful to have. We can’t wait to work with her for family sessions every year.


newborn Session

Ashlie was wonderful and really put our whole family at ease. She was so great with our toddler son and kept him smiling throughout the whole shoot.

We absolutely love the photos too!

maternity Session


Our family has had a few sessions with with Ashlie. We have had nothing but great experiences, and will continue to work with her.

She makes the entire process so easy, our kids absolutely love her, and she never fails to get excellent shots of our family. Her attention to detail is not only reflected in the photos but also in the relationships she creates.

family Session


Ashlie did an amazing job with our winter family photos. She helped wrangle my two energetic girls (ages 4 & 7) and made the whole process fun and enjoyable.

She even had goodie bags for the kids which was a great way to motivate them to cooperate during the session :) I would absolutely book photos with her again!

family Session


A bucket list moment! I am going to cherish these memories for a lifetime. Ashlie was kind, patient, great with my toddler and newborn. She gave good directions on what looks good in a photo, and delivered awesome photos for us. I am very happy with our overall experience with Ashlie. I highly recommend!

Maternity Session


Ashlie is the best! She is amazing at capturing kiddos & I love her clean style. Can’t wait for future sessions with her :)

family Session


I was happy to get a fall photo session with my family. Ashlie is easy to work with and understanding of the complexities of working with toddlers. When I forgot my daughters outfit she had ideas and props to mitigate the problem, We had a great experience!

Why trust me with your baby's newborn portraits?



I’m trained in newborn safety by the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI) as well as infant and child CPR. I'm fully vaccinated and stay up-to-date on my immunizations. We go at baby’s pace making sure they always have their needs met. Your baby’s safety and comfort is my number one priority.



I have been photographing babies since 2017. I started babysitting babies when I was 12. Babies have always held a special place in my heart and I have over 25 years of experience caring for them. 



I work with your baby to photograph them in a natural and authentic way. You’ll only find them in positions that you’d likely find them in normally. The only props that are ever used are parents' hands. 



I use neutral backdrops in my work and keep things very simple, classic and baby-focused. Guaranteeing that your baby’s newborn photographs withstand the test of time. 

Here, please fill out the contact form with all of your amazing details that you are envisioning for your Portland portrait session & all the questions you have for me. Thank you!
