Born & raised in Thunder Bay, I have a genuine love for the city, it's people and the gorgeous surrounding area. My deep desire to create has led me unexpectedly into the world of photography. Connecting with a variety of people and documenting their authentic moments has me hooked on the profession and drives me to better my craft. I've been fortunate enough to have met so many inspiring people both inside and outside of the photo world which has made me the photographer I am today - inspired by light, energy, and natural beauty.

A session that your family will look back on and smile. Kids don't like to sit still and neither do I. Let's keep it less traditional and more quick paced and fun. In under an hour you will have a set of photos that reflect your families energy and personality. Whether it's in your home doing everyday things, a place that's special to you, or somewhere new!
This holds most of my heart. It's my "just for fun", collaborative work with other artists in the industry, and travel photography.
This is where the sunset and adventure happen. A chance to capture the excitement between you and your fiancé after the ring and before the wedding, while having the freedom to shoot anywhere at anytime! Let's plan something special together that is a reflection of the two of you. The beach, the farm, your back yard, or your kitchen table. It'll be a blast - I promise!
Your proposal is one of the most exciting moments to have captured! Surprise your significant other with an emotional set of images and share your special moment with family and friends for years to come!
By developing a special relationship with each of my clients, I will create a fun and relaxed atmosphere while shooting! Leaving you with both personal and meaningful images of one of the most memorable days of your life. Let''s get together and make your dream wedding a reality!
Before the baby!
"Ahhh just looked at all the pics!!! They are amazing!!! Best photographer ever!"
"Despite the frigid temperature on session day, the entire experience was one we will never forget."
"Ashley has become very special to our family."
It don't even remember how I was fortunate enough to stumble across Ashley and her amazing talent so many years ago. She first photographed my family when my first daughter was only 3 years old! We now have 3 beautiful girls and she feels like part of the family too. We may only see her once a year but my oldest remembers her and has so much fun getting involved and trying different poses. I have a passion for photography and her style and attention to detail without being posey is what I love the most about her work. She captures feelings and emotions in the moment and makes it stand still in time. With three kids and a husband who dislikes being photographed....she has always delivered breathtaking, stunning photos. I am forever grateful of her talent and ability to capture memories that I look forward to looking back on time and time again. Can't thank her enough!!!
Maria Maria Photo you are to die for. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!
