Ashley is a phenomenal photographer. We received so many complements on our maternity shoot and newborn shoot. Not only that but the patience and perseverance she has with doing the newborn shots is amazing. Our son was only two days old and it took an hour and a half to get him to settle for his first photo and Ashley did not show one bit of frustration and was calm the whole time. If it wasn’t for her I don’t think we would have got a single picture taken that day. I would recommend her to anyone.

Loved how my newborn pictures with Ashley turned out! She takes the time to make sure you get great ones even if baby is fussy. I never once felt worried or rushed while we were with Ashley.

My husband and I had our first baby, a little girl, in June and wanted to have some keepsake newborn shots taken. I reached out to Ashley after searching for photographers in Guelph and we set up the shoot for when our girl was just 8 days old. Ashley was very flexible on the time- and was even more understanding when we ran a bit late (“they” aren’t kidding about how long it takes to leave the house with an infant!!). Ashley was very professional, down-to-earth and calm during the shoot. She blocked off 3 hours for it, and kept assuring us that we had lots of time so that I could feed/change my baby as much as I needed. My husband and I greatly appreciated her patience-it helped us to stay calm. Ashley had lots of props there, and we were able to bring in whatever outfits/blankets that we wanted to include. I would definitely recommend giving poses some thought before going in- it can be hard to decide on the spot. We loved the shots Ashley captured and I’m so glad we booked a newborn shoot- our baby is 5 months old now and it’s so hard to remember her being that tiny. The pictures Ashley captured will be treasured forever!

Thank you so much for capturing such a special moment for us with your beautiful photographs. We are thrilled with the quality and selection of photos! Your relaxed approach made our newborn photo shoot a lot of fun!


Kelly & Mike Callachan with Newborn Hailey Sophia | Born May 29, 2014:

Ashley was phenomenal with our daughter. The session took less than an hour, without a single complaint from our baby. The photographs were amazing, with so many great shots to choose from!


Jennifer & Mark Szymanski with Newborn Grayson Keith | Born April 21, 2014:

We had the pleasure of working with Ashley for our engagement and pregnancy announcement photos so there was no question that we wanted her to do our sons newborn photos. Ashley is the sweetest person you will ever meet. She always makes us feel comfortable during our photo shoots. She went above and beyond during our newborn session by wearing gloves to make sure her hands were warm so our son wouldn’t get cold. She was very patient with our stubborn newborn. He did not want to cooperate that day but Ashley got some amazing shots of him and we will cherish these photos forever.

Ashley has been a phenomenal photographer and has captured beautiful keepsakes of our family. She was the photographer we chose for both of our newborn pictures. We were so very happy with our pictures from our first shoot of our little girl, and we trusted her and were excited for her to take pictures of our son when he was just a few days old. She spent a lot of time with us, making sure we captured all the different poses, which can be especially difficult when working with a toddler and a newborn. She had many different props to use and made sure to capture a variety of fabulous individual and family pictures. We have truly loved working with Ashley. She is a talented and wonderfully dedicated photographer!

Ashley was super accommodating in scheduling our newborn photo session last minute and was open to our ideas. We were thrilled with the photos we received and they are displayed throughout our home. We are so happy we took the time to do this as they make us smile every day!


Samantha Sweetman & Jamie Schiefer with Newborn Isla | Born July 22, 2013:

Ashley did a great job with my daughters newborn photos. She was so good with her and was very helpful! I was amazed with the final product!  Ashley was very comfortable working with my daughter and had very cute props for the photoshoot. I received the final product in a timely fashion on top of it all. I highly recommend using her services, you will not be disappointed. She is passionate about what she does, and it shows.


Lindsey Gillian & Stewart Bruce with Newborn Scarlett Catherine | Born May 15, 2013:

Ashley did our newborn photos almost as soon as we brought our daughter home. She came right to our home and set up a beautiful back drop and soothed our baby right into the photo shoot. She was amazing and very professional. She took the most beautiful photos that are irreplaceable to us. Thanks Ashley! I would recommend her to anyone!


Victoria & Dave Caron with Newborn Myles David Joseph | Born April 24, 2013:

We have had Ashley photograph our family and children several times, from our 2nd pregnancy announcement, holiday photos, newborn pictures and even a 1 year old cake smash shoot. Ashley has also used the photos she took to make us awesome pregnancy announcement photo cards, and a cake smash collage. Ashley is always professional and friendly, she makes you feel comfortable and is great with children and babies…even the messiest accidents that happened during our newborn shoot didn’t phase her, she is always smiling. Ashley takes the time to make sure you receive several beautiful shots. She really has captured moments in time for my family, these pictures hang in my home as beautiful reminders of the various stages of childhood. We will cherish the pictures Ashley has taken throughout our lifetime.

When we booked Ashley for a newborn session I didn’t know what to expect. We had ‘newborn’ photos taken for our girls by a photography company that specializes in baby portraits, however, with Ashley there was no comparison. She was incredibly patient, gentle, compassionate and never rushed. Near the end of the session, Ashley brought in our girls for a few shots with their new brother and took some pictures with just the two of us. This wasn’t at all planned but they turned out beautifully. After seeing all the gorgeous pictures that were taken, I wished I had done the same for my girls. Thank you Ashley for putting so much love into your work. It really shows!


Kathleen & Bernie McIntosh with Kiddos Kyle & Brooke | From Guelph, ON:

We always have a fun photo shoot with Ashley!  We are comfortable to be ourselves, and just have a lot of fun with it.  It is worth the extra effort to get our photos done separately with Ashley, instead of just the regular school and sport team photos, as she really brings out the best smiles every time.  Thank you, Ashley!


Stacey & Trevor Douglas with Kiddos Abby & Riley | From Guelph, ON:

My family just had our Christmas pictures taken with Ashley. What a wonderful experience! Ashley was very professional. She listened to some of my idea’s and was able to change things quickly and with great feedback. Her setting was just gorgeous and what we all loved the most was having a special visit with Santa!! This will defiantly be a holiday tradition for our family!


Robyn & Rich Philips with Kiddos Sienna & Naomi | From Etobicoke/Toronto ON:

It was a great pleasure to have Ashley as our family photography a number of times. Ashley has a cheerful passion for photography that translates beautifully to her work.  She naturally and effortlessly captures moments that create lovely visual memories.  Her relaxed vibe and flexibility work well to calm the whole family (newborn babies and difficult pets included!).
