I really want family portraits - I just don't have the time!

I’ve been there, and I know the feeling! I never found the time either. A lot of times I didn’t feel pretty enough or I didn’t make a plan and I let everything around me take over. The cooking, the cleaning, planning for what I thought were more important life moments – like school and sporting events. The things that really mattered most sometimes got put on the back burner (including a weekly massage!). I regret it, and wish I could rewind time and make so many things more of a priority and that definitely included my family portraits!

Just imagine...

I don’t want to share those regrets! So I want you to imagine this… Waking up every morning and being greeted by a large beautiful portrait that reminds you of the reason you work so hard. An intimate visual of your blessings, your joy, your memories. A piece that you’re proud to hang in your home, complimenting it in the best way possible, because it’s your story – your art!

You know in your heart

Every day is truly such a blessing, and every day you’re getting older, your kids are getting older, and you really need to get this done, but maybe you just don’t know where to start?

I would love to come to your aid, and be your helper during the process. From the moment we meet, to the day where I hand deliver your beautiful heirlooms, I want you to know that I’ve got your back!

From Start to finish

I will guide you through the whole process. You can ask me any questions your heart desires. Let’s sit down over some coffee and talk about where you would like to go with your session, and how we can customize the results from your session to compliment your home in the best ways! Then you get to sit back and relax, and let me do the rest!

No more stress!

Family portaits absolutely don’t have to be stressful, it doesn’t have to be “another thing you need to get done.”

You can feel beautiful and confident, and know that you have someone on your team to make this a smooth process and an experience you’ll not only love, but want to do again.

Ashley was fantastic with our shoot! She was very flexible with our busy schedule and accommodated all of our wants for the shoot. The pictures turned out perfect! I highly recommend Ashley for all of her hard work and perfection with everything.

I highly recommend Ashley for any occasion photos! She did our family’s photo shoot in the Fall at Allerton Park. I must say our pictures came out beautiful. We couldn’t be happier with the results. For any type of photo shoot you may need I HIGHLY recommend Ashley Black Photography!!!

You made it to the end of the page! Yay! But — before we get back to our busy lives, I just want to take a moment and be completely honest with you so that I don’t waste your time. It’s very important that you hire the best photographer to fit your needs, and I’m definitely not the right photographer for everyone. So let’s make sure that we would be a good match – the perfect team!

I am not the right photographer for wonderful mom’s who are just looking for digital images. Unfortunately digital’s have become the norm in our social media society, leaving behind the beauty of prints that you can touch, feel, cherish, and show to all the people who are so important in your life, eventually passing down to your children – so that they can do the same! 

I’m not the right photographer for mom’s who want to print their own images. Making sure that you get the best quality and craftsmanship is super important to me and I’m sad to say it, but you just can’t get the same results with corner store, or big box store lab’s or even some online printers. They don’t have the time nor the skill to print out large scale portraits, and extremely customized items.

I like things to be unique, beautiful, and of best quality. I pour myself into my work, and I strive to deliver unparalleled results. 

I am a great fit for women who want to create beautiful statement pieces for their homes, and even workplaces. Women who enjoy a light, fun, creative environment – and who don’t mind a good laugh, letting their hair down, creating some good memories, and enjoying the process. 

If you think we would be a great match, please get in touch — I’m so excited to meet you!
