Hi! I'm Ashlie and my biggest joy is capturing all of the magic that life has to offer. I nerd out over all things Harry Potter, have a crazy obsession with cheese, try really hard to be good at gardening and am always looking for the next fantasy series to get into. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet to check out my work, I hope you enjoy looking through my photos. Schedule a session today to capture the magic in your life!
