Gathered & Found
YOUR STORIES ARE MEDICINE // HEALING & HOLY
GET TO KNOW ME
I’m Ashley. Photographer & Storyteller based in Upstate South Carolina.
I am a keeper of stories. Stories gathered and found, details noticed and moments preserved. Heirlooms to be kept, for fingers to wear down corners with years of revisiting.
Everything I do is based on connection. On the Truth of your life right now. Honoring it while exploring the sometimes difficult nature of it.
ADVENTURE, MATERNITY, BIRTH, MOTHERHOOD, SISTERHOOD, PORTRAIT, & TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY
The worth of a moment. // My favorite poet, Mary Oliver, wrote:
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
And that's what I aim to do. To notice. To feel my way into a moment, to lean into the story unfolding in front of me.
Let's go adventure. // I have a deep love of the outdoors & Mamma Nature.
My goal is to get you outside with the people you love & get you totally immersed in your environment - so much so that you're not even thinking about the camera, but instead, being fully present.
I want to send you home, brimming with joy & contentment, happily tired, preferably wet from the river & covered in mud.
