Ashley Jennings Photography bio picture
  • A bit about Ashley…

    Ashley is a professional Wedding and Portrait Photographer in Arizona & California (and loves to travel!) She lives her life through movie quotes, and couldn't take a single picture without her daily cup of coffee. She is 5'0 (which means many of her sessions require acrobatics), got married at 19 years old (right about the time she discovered solid food) and has two daughters 19 months apart (aka craziness)! She LOVES meeting new people, and is passionate about capturing memories to last a lifetime.

The Desert in Bloom

The last few Mondays (my day off of my big girl job), I’ve been intentional about being creative. It’s easy in the hustle of life to neglect life-giving practices…for me photography is a practice that brings me joy & inspires me! Lucky for me, I have two INCREDIBLY beautiful daughters. Don’t get me wrong…it’s not easy to photograph your own children. At the end of it I said outloud for the hundreth time, “Next time I’m paying someone!!” However, looking at these…even the silly ones…reminds me that they will only be little for a short time. I already feel like they’ve grown faster than I’m ready for them to. I’m constantly catching up to the realization that these little ladies will one day be…ladies. I’m so in awe of them both; so different and so amazing. They chose the posing for these haha! Without further ado…here is Hailey Grace at 7 years old and Alli Jane 6 weeks shy of 6!

Creative Fun

Since moving to Arizona, I’ve been the second shooter at a number of weddings! This is a new niche for me, as I’m used to leading my own weddings! I LOVE to photograph couples, and I love the intensity of a capturing moments and emotions. As a second shooter, I am able to relax a little bit more and get my creative juices flowing! I love the dynamic of learning to shoot from different angles and with different lighting. This wedding was beautiful, and beautifully captured by Anita Shay Photography! I’m grateful to have played a small part in photographing these memories! Here are some of my favorites from the day! Enjoy!

A Princess Mini Session

So, I’ve known this little girls mom longer than I haven’t known her. We met when we were in 1st grade, and have been joined at the hip since! So, that means when she had a little girl I felt like I also got a new daughter. Miss Reid has a smile that is contagious, and a deep love for all things disney princess (just like her mom and I). When we were planning her mini session, momma wanted to make sure we captured her special love for dress up. Get ready to smile 🙂

A September Mini Session

In September, I traveled home to Sacramento for 17 mini sessions! It was such a heart warming time to re-connect with old clients! The Abercrombie Family are NEAR and DEAR to my heart! They are some of my best friends, and their family is so fun to capture! Each kiddo has their own special personality, and I treasure our moments together! Enjoy!
