Hi there!

I'm Ashleigh...

chocolate addict | music lover | tea drinker | thrift shopper | culinarily challenged | hopeless romantic

…a 29 year old photographer living in Australia’s Capital and most underrated city, Canberra. If you ever can’t find me, best bet is I’ll be in an op-shop or taking a nap. I’m culinarily challenged, I love a good chai latte, I’m a massive dork and the way to my heart is through puppies and music. I never follow recipes, I’m a firm believer that music makes the world go-round and I like my pancakes half cooked and dipping my choc top in my popcorn at the movies. I’m also pretty sure I was born in the wrong era. Take me back to the 50s, 60s & 70s please!

I am an explorer of new places and love meeting new faces. But most importantly, I love taking photos. It’s not just my job, it’s my passion. I’m incredibly lucky to travel all over Australia and the world documenting peoples lives.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I like to keep things simple and I hate saying “cheese”. If you don’t want to smile, then you don’t have to. During a photo shoot, I like to be the fly on the wall. Sure, I’ll give you some direction during the bridal party location portraits, but I much prefer to just watch you interact with your loved ones. This shows the real story- not your relationship with the camera. I try to make each photo session fun and easy for everybody by playing games and just having a good laugh- you can never take yourself too seriously. I promise you’ll leave feeling pleasantly surprised how painless a photo session can be.

"The best compliment you can give a photographer is to book them, so lets chat!"
