Hello, it's nice to meet you!
I am loved by Jesus and in desperate need of His grace. I am a wife, a mommy of three (5, 3 & baby), and a homemaker on a 1.5 acre farmhouse lot. I work two jobs from home; this and consulting for Rodan + Fields premium skincare. So ya, life can be a little crazy ; ) I am a photographer by trade because I love to really 'get' someone and capture them in an artistic, simple, honest way. I love the sun. Like, LOVE it! It feeds my soul.
A little more about me. I am a daughter, sister, auntie, friend. I am imperfect. I am blessed. I am learning, often the hard way but I hunger for growth. I am big fan of coffee, snuggling my babies, time with extended family and time alone with my husband. He's the glue that keeps us together. I am a foodie - I love to cook! I am insecure. I'm easily inspired. I value transparency and honesty and strive to show my real self. I am passionate and driven. I am Ashley Porter.
My spark for photography started late in life. On a whim I decided to move to Massachusetts to attend a one-year intensive photography school, The Hallmark Institute of Photography. I was 21 when I returned home and searching for my role in this world. I did not want to be an entrepreneur, it sounded so exhausting and ‘grown-up.’ I started offering portraits to family and friends and realized how much I enjoyed photographing people. Soon I found myself building a business and although is was and still is a lot of work, I’m happy to say my big girl panties suit me just fine! I really love my job and am blessed with all the people I get to work with.
Who are YOU? You are inspiring, incredible, beautiful, gifted, and a unique person. Let’s talk!
