Jack + Tara

As you might guess, as a photographer I am constantly checking the weather.  I check it weeks out from a shoot and each day leading up to a session.  Once the hourly radar becomes available I start checking that.  It might be an unhealthy habit, but it helps me feel slightly more prepared for the […]

Faley Family

The Faleys are one of those amazing families that allowed me to start capturing their family’s memories years ago, before I had a website or a business e-mail address.  They believed and supported my business when I was working full time in marketing and squeezing in shoots after working my 8 hour days and on […]

Halberg Family

It is such an honor to photograph extended families.  Over the holidays I was contacted by a whole bunch of families to see if I could photograph their whole gang while everyone was in town celebrating together.  I think it is so important that these families make it a priority to take time out of […]

Barlage Family

I met with the Barlage family on a crisp morning in November at Kensington Park.  Jess and I grew up playing sports together and it was so fun to catch up with her and her family.  Through this job I get to see so many people that I otherwise may not have the chance to […]

Lampela Family

Some families have what I lovingly refer to as the dark hole stage.  A season of life where they have only a few iPhone photos of their kids and absolutely no photos of their entire family together.  It usually starts when your kids get to middle school.  They start sports and clubs and you have […]

Margie- Class of 2017

Margie was seriously a dream to work with.  She arrived to her senior pictures a little unsure of the whole thing.  Then she opened up the back of her car’s trunk and showed me the outfits she brought, we started getting to know each other, and everything fell into place.  I am in love with […]

Ells Family

I posted a little version of this story over on my Instagram page (I am @caryn_ashley over there,) but I had to share here, too.  I photographed the Ells family 5 years ago.  Their kids were much smaller and didn’t look like stunning young adults yet.  When they showed up for their shoot this year […]

Samantha- Class of 2017

Samantha and I met for her senior pictures at Milford Central Park.  Which if you have been following along on here, you know is one of my favorite places to shoot.  I love the mix of gorgeous wooded areas, the river and bridges, and the urban backdrops that are a quick walk away in downtown Milford.  […]

Cregar Family

I have been photographing a whole bunch of little ones for their first birthdays lately.  It absolutely amazes me, how outgoing and sweet all of them are.  Bretton was no exception! He showed up with the biggest smile on his face and it didn’t fade the entire time we were together. Bretton’s mom and dad […]
