Preserving your story and stays through intentional, honest photos. The kind you didn't know you needed.


it all started with moments of connection found fireside

Hi, I'm Ashley

Some of my most meaningful memories  have been camping as a young girl, first dates with my husband, and making s'mores with my kids.  Being fireside represents connection and intentional moments like this that I want you to remember in your own life - the ones that really matter.

What can I do for you?

No matter where you are in life, you need an experience that is relaxed and photos that are meaningful.   Let me help you with that.




- E & P

The photos turned out perfect!...We went for a walk in the woods, and had a wonderful time.  Could not have asked for a better experience!



- A & D

There are not enough kind, genuine, HONEST words that could describe Ashley and her beautiful work as a photographer.



- A & L

The most thoughtful and detail-oriented wedding photographer we could’ve asked for! Her photos captured so many wonderful memories, and each shot was so artfully done. I could not recommend her enough!



- Olivia

Love her style, she was great on communication of when we should expect our photos too. I've had her take family photos for a couple years now and she's the best!
