'm from the Midwest. I grew up wild and free in the open spaces of my family's farm. Imagination and creativity were part of our everyday. I don't remember a time that we didn't have horses and cattle on the farm. My childhood was an adventure. When naming my business, I wanted to incorporate my roots and where I was raised. The logo and name of my photography business reminded me of exactly that.
Like so many others, I bought a really nice camera after having kiddos. I would stay up until all hours of the night reading everything I could about photography, owning a business and editing. Because of the excitement of working with people and helping them preserve memories, I worked like crazy over the next few years shooting family and friends, second shooting weddings with photographers I admired, and attended classes in-person and online. At the end of 2019 (yes, just a couple months ago!) I couldn’t keep photography as a side job any longer and decided to go full-time!
Whenever possible I love shooting on location but also have a studio at the old Rubber Mill Building on the northside of La Crosse.
Specialties: families, kiddos, newborns, couples, seniors, professional head shots, pets, one year old cake smashes and maternity!

ASHLEY HAS TAKEN SENIOR PICTURES FOR BOTH MY CHILDREN. SHE HAS A REAL GIFT OF MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE NATURALS AND KEEPING THE PHOTOS REAL TO WHO THEY ARE AS PEOPLE. HER COMMUNICATION WAS EXCELLENT. sHE IS THE BEST!
Ashley did a Christmas mini session and the pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL! She managed to capture our 2.5 year old and 7 month old perfectly. Babies and toddlers are not the most cooperative clients 😉. I would absolutely recommend her for your next family portrait!
