Hello! Iā€™m Ashlee, a self-taught photographer based in Sacramento, CA.

My approach to photography is simple: I want to help you remember your life. I'm a storyteller by nature, and photography allows me to tell your story, a gift I do not take lightly. My favorite sessions are the indoor ones where we open the windows and make a mess and jump on the bed and lick cookie dough off the spoon. 

At this time I do not shoot weddings because I spend time with my family on the weekends, but if you're planning a destination wedding in Fiji for around 50 people, I will definitely consider that and probably do it for cheap because I've always wanted to go to Fiji.

I don't take myself too seriously. I love: Jesus, my husband Brett, my three beautiful children, writing, good friends, fresh air, and movie theater popcorn. I smile a lot and generally consider the glass half full.

When I'm not taking pictures, I'm running Coffee + Crumbs - an online community for mothers.
