Hello! My name is Ashtyn. Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I love that I can freeze a moment in time and revisit it over and over. I still get excited over beautiful shots and I love to share that energy with my clients. I think of photography as the art of visual storytelling. I want the photos in your home to tell the story of your life in a beautiful and seamless way. I like to use a wide variety of prompts to capture posed and candid moments during your session.
I was born in Delaware, and have lived all over the country, but Colorado has always felt like home. I decided to put down some roots, and I've been here for 15 years. My soul lives in the mountains and I am always up for an adventure. I am constantly looking for beautiful places to take photos and Colorado has no shortage of beautiful places. Whether you are looking for mountains, forest, water, or wide open spaces, we have it all!
I originally went to college as an arts major, before switching to healthcare with the goal of becoming a labor and delivery nurse. I have always loved babies, and wanted to work with them. After spending several years in the medical field, I decided that wasn't the path for me. Then I became a mother myself, and realized that was the space I thrive in and still want to occupy. I was given an opportunity to go back to my artistic roots, and rediscovered my love for photography. Here I am now, 30, and finally have found my calling. I have found a career that fulfills my need for artistic expression, and allows me to witness the miracle of new life. I am now also working to become a certified doula, and hope to offer those services in connection with my photography as well.
When I'm not taking photos, I love to spend time with my husband and family. I have an adorable toddler, who loves to keep me on my toes. I also have two beautiful dogs, an 11 year old Corgi-Husky mix, and a feisty 5 year old Shiba Inu. I am a fairly quiet, laid back person, a true introvert at heart. That said, I'm also a huge nerd and will jump at the chance to talk about all the things I love! I love meeting new people and getting to know them, so I look forward to hearing from you. Let's make some beautiful photos together.
