Welcome to the mind of Lauren Ashley

Welcome to blog number one. I guess I should introduce myself.  My name is Lauren Ashley.  I was born & raised in Columbus, Ohio.  I am a proud Ohioan, (O-H!). I have been married to the love of my life for the past 10 years and we have 2 beautiful boys!

Not only am I a mom & wife I am also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, sister in law, friend, makeup artist & daughter of God.  Whew! That is a lot of things, but you know what? I am proud to be them all!

One of the reasons I do photography is that it is more than a job. It is my passion to allow people to see them how I see them. We are all beautiful, we are all vibrant and we are 100% without a doubt divine. I think it is important for people to see their worth. To see how beautiful they are when the world tries so hard to tell us everything we are not.

 Simple as that.

As a photographer, I am invited into some of the most precious, sacred & tender moments in you & your loved ones lives. I am humbled by such a beautiful honor, & I always want to treat that with the up-most respect.

I want to share with you some of the most beautiful moments; I have had the privilege to capture.

I loved watching this little one investigate these flowers at her mom & dad's wedding. This is one of my favorite shots. It shows me to enjoy the simple things in life. She made it look so effortless, while sometimes I feel when we grow up we complicate it too much. I would have never thought to get such a lesson out of what seemed to be a simple snapshot. She tells a story just by being her.

Along with finding simple joys in life is being with loved ones. My sister and I were out doing a shoot one day and it happened to get cancelled, so I asked her to be my model, and what I captured was just a sliver of her awesomeness.

This is my sister Madison. This is her being awesome.
