The Bellaire siblings were a blast to meet and absolutely full of personality!  We made it through a nice day for January and especially lucky since no one landed in the soggy muddy grass since it was so warm.


The Goggins are expecting a little boy in March!  They were such a sweet couple who barely needed any help "posing" for photos - we captured some great moments even in the chilly weather!
I can't wait to see them again for newborn photos soon in what seems like no time!

{Maya & Bruce}

I've been friends with Maya & Bruce's aunt & uncle for years now - we went to college together and they are pretty awesome people!  I've know their parents for a few years now and was super excited when they schedule this appointment for the kids!

Maya is such a sweet little girl - so shy at first then all about putting on the tutu and posing for us and holding her little brother and telling me all about her morning and favorite things to do!

Bruce was a champ for being just over 6 weeks old which is typically a tough age for little ones :) He for the most part allowed us to do almost anything we wanted as long as we kept his paci and bottle close by for a little bribery when needed!

Without further ado - here's some photos from their session!

Printing & Print Releases

As I've mentioned before 2013 has a few changes regarding the way sessions are structured but there is also a change regarding print releases.

I have chosen to better ensure quality prints for my clients that any prints larger than 8x10s must be ordered from Ashley Marie Photography.  I truly believe this is the best way to make sure those large prints you put in your home are quality and represent the pictures we took the best they possibly can.  You will have the option when contacting me to get special written permission thru me to purchase via another consumer level lab which I do recommend or to order directly through me which may be slightly more expensive but even higher quality images.

Here's a quick example of print quality.  The easiest way to point things out is if you see the red/orange in his face in the Walgreens and Walmart prints.  For small prints it may not make that much of a difference to you however for large prints it can make or break a photo.  I do not want your precious memories to be printed with orange/red skin tones :).  My processing is calibrated with my professional lab to ensure your prints come out accurate.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change in policy for 2013 please send me an email at ashley@ashmariephotography.com

Thank you!

I did Evan's newborn photos last April and he's been a participant in my Baby's First Year plan as well so I've gotten the pleasure of seeing him grow every three months!  He's gotten such a personality (and notoriously hard to get to smile at the camera) and is so adorable and fun to play with!


I went to college with Léany's mom and she came to visit last year for her 2 year photos - well it was great having her back for the 3 year pics!  She's got soooo much spunk and personality and once she warmed up she was hamming the camera the rest of the time! 

Birthdays|{Jocelyn & James}

These two kids kill me every time!  They are such sweethearts.  Every time Jocelyn wants to help me set things up - change backgrounds and help in any way possible and I absolutely love it!  James was one of my first newborns last year and some of my favorite newborn pics!

 I did this little girls newborn photos about 3 months ago....she's part of our Baby's First Year plan so here's some of her 3 month photos!  Such a sweetheart but wasn't too big on smiling much for us!

3 Months|{Leigh}

 Mr. Leigh came to visit again (third time since his birth) and he just keeps getting bigger!  Such a sweet little boy but goodness he makes us work fast!  I've been working with his mom and dad since their engagement photos almost two years ago.  They are a great couple and make such an awesome family!

 Gavin is a very special little boy who's tackling cancer!  He's full of spunk, very very sweet, and overall was a blast to hang out with!  I'm so happy to be able to give back to this family and help document Gavin's 3 year photos!
