REAL PORTRAITS FOR REAL PEOPLE. LET’S PLAY.
This is me. (The black and white me.) It’s kind of funny how a photographer’s profile is a lot like dating. Both parties are hoping for connection, butterflies, sparks and someone who “gets them.”
On that note, hi, I’m Ashlee. I like long walks on the beach (we won’t talk about the fact I live in a land-locked state), love animals and pretty much everything with fur and four legs, and hate pickles. I have a bachelor’s in communications and a master’s in business. I like anything that sparkles, have a super funny pit bull mix named Scottie that I inherited and he has two weenie dog girlfriends that rule the roost. I still get misty at weddings, have been shooting them for over seven years, and will juice vegetables and eat mac n’ cheese in the same day. I like hearing stories behind tattoos, may or may not hip-check grandma to get a shot at a wedding (ok, not really, but I’ve been tempted), and wear yoga pants without ever really doing yoga. I’ll probably not tell you if I’m hurt or wounded—you’ll have to pay attention for that, and I’m quite ticklish but I pretend not to be. I once pretended to be a runner, running a marathon and three half marathons, but have never had a runner’s high. Most importantly, I will always say yes to a cup of coffee or glass of wine with friends.
I think this is the part where we swipe left or right. ???
FYI…It’s not just about the “I Do’s”
I love those with a cause. Photography contributions include working with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, photographing special needs students through various school programs,and specializing in author bio portraits and authors writing for impact, not necessarily fame and fortune.
My goal is when I’m behind the camera, you don’t just get a picture, you get a flair and zest for life thrown into an unintimidating and warm package that has been customized to deliver exactly what you need. I am not a cookie cutter photographer and each session is different than the others, tailored specifically for each client.
Along with completing 29 of the 30 things on my 30×30 bucket list, I often trade my camera for a pen with published writing contributions articles for Vail’s EAT magazine, creating a 56 page Visitor Guide for a mountain ski town, blogging and guest blogging, being featured in multiple newspapers and e-zines, and various other projects. I love the publishing world.
Currently, I keep my camera in hand all over Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, am a complete and total foodie, and I take plane rides for fun. I like things that go.
