Hey there!
Hi, I'm Ashley!

I've lived a lot of life in the 20 years since I left Louisiana. I aim everyday to bring the creativity of my hometown to my work. I love the outdoors and I'm passionate about living in close proximity to nature. I'm now a momma of an energetic little boy and I'm proud of the life I've built as an entrepreneur in Boone, NC.

I'm a fun-loving New Orleans girl living in the NC mountains.

After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, I found myself living in Durham and studying at UNC-CH where I fell in love with film photography. Fast forward 20 years and I find myself as an artist, mom, wife, entrepreneur and passionate connector of people in the NC High Country. 

Life as a mother looks different these days and when I'm not working on my photography business or my local photography studio, you can find me chasing my toddler (with a coffee in hand), gardening, reading romantasy, Netflixing with my husband or going on random adventures with my bestie <3 

I love meeting new people and connecting with others. I'd love to get to know YOU and how photography fits into your story.

Through owning my own business, buying a house and being connected with so many other passionate people in Boone, I've carved out a pretty sweet little life for myself.

I was a city girl with a curiosity to live in closer proximity to nature.

My husband Jason and my son Clark are my biggest fans and motivators. I love being with these two humans :)

Meet my family!

I could always use a "little treat" in the form of a coffee beverage. Coffeeshops have always been and always will be my *happy place*.

I love coffee

Creativity is my magic. I love to channel my creativity into everything I do whether that's cooking, art, friendships... it all comes with a little flair! 

I'm an artist.

I'm constantly on a healing journey of deeper self-exploration. I'm here for real conversations and truly understanding others. 

I'm a deep feeler.

I love fiction, good stories, tales of adventure, learning about archetypes and keeping my head in the stars and my feet on the ground.

I'm a dreamer.

Ashley was our wedding photographer for our wedding at Castle McCulloch. She did such an amazing job, her personality is like sunshine and everyone loved her. Our photos look amazing, she captured everything and edited them in a "moody" style we love. Highly recommend her for ANY photography.

"Her personality is like sunshine."

We were absolutely THRILLED to have worked with Ashley for both our engagement photos and wedding day!! Ashley brought down-to-earth, excited, and friendly energy to our special day that made the entire experience not only stress-free but incredibly fun and enjoyable.

The photos came out so natural and stunning! Ashley was very kind, knowledgeable, talented, and organized. We met with her before the wedding and she honored the moments we wanted to capture most. I absolutely adore my wedding photos and would recommend Natural Craft to anyone that is looking for someone to capture natural and beautiful landscapes, moments, and faces! C

"I absolutely adore my wedding photos!"

Jennifer D.

She was professional, kind, and had wonderful recommendations for us out-of-towners on where to shoot to achieve the images we wanted. She was such a trooper, hiking literal mountain tops and waterfalls for us. The final images are absolutely stunning and we can't recommend her fervently enough. We'll definitely be repeat clients.

"Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with."
