In-House Photographer

Meet Our In-House Photographer, Ashley

Hello. I am Ashley, the gal behind Rustic Dandelions Photography. I am a stay at home mom to two kiddos; Eli who is 9 years old and Evie who is 5 years old. We also have 4 fur babies lead by our dog Codie, and our three cats Carl and Ellie lovingly named after the husband and wife from the movie Up and Emmet Bob, a combination of names from our kids. We moved to Petoskey, MI where my husband and I first met after living in Madison, WI for four years and Richmond, VA prior to that.  

As a stay at home mom I found a hobby in taking pictures, sometimes daily, of my kids. Eventually they got sick of me taking their picture. The eye rolling started happening every time I took out my camera. That’s when I decided to take my hobby and turn it into a career. 

I absolutely love capturing families, kids, and especially newborns! This is my passion and I specialize in photographing maternity, newborn and infant sessions.  My goal is to have fun during each photo shoot and make you and your children feel comfortable in front of the camera.  Most of my favorite photos are those un-posed pictures of everyone enjoying themselves and laughing. I know how fast kids grow so documenting these precious memories is my main priority during each and every photo shoot.
