BE INSPIRED Session | At home newborn lifestly featuring Ashley Gardner


Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.

I started my business in March of this year and it has grown faster than I ever imagined it would. I truly love capturing the heart and souls of families, couples and new parents and I believe my work shows just how much I love photography. I go into every session excited to create memories that will last a lifetime. I’m a mom of two kids (and currently pregnant with my 3rd!) so I know how fast time flies by and just how important it is to have beautiful photographs of your family to look back on.

What about this session was most memorable?

This session I had worked with the family for their maternity photos as well as the birth of their baby girl. I was so excited to be able to do their newborn photos as well. I love being able to be apart of so many beautiful memories.

 Were there any hurdles?

The session went pretty well! Big brother was still getting used to his sister, but it worked out and we got some cute photos of them together!

Your best photographer/session advice?

Have fun! Don’t stress out about sessions too much. Go with the flow. Especially if you’re doing lifestyle photography. Not everything will go as planned, but those usually always turn out to be the best photos.

What gear was used to achieve these?

Canon 35mm lens



I’m a military wife, a mom of two rambunctious kids and currently pregnant with my third little one as well! I was born and raised in beautiful Northern California and have lived here all of my life. I’m blessed to live in a state that has stunning mountains and beautiful beaches all within a 2 hour drive. When I’m not out scouting locations, taking photos or editing I spend my free time with my husband and kids! I’m also a huge reality tv junkie, coffee addict and wine lover. I’m a pretty outgoing and talkative person, so a good majority of my clients end up becoming great friends I’m absolutely blessed to be able to do what I love so much and it truly lights a fire in my soul to create beautiful images that people can cherish forever.
