Arkansas Family Photographer

Let’s embrace the beautiful chaos.

easy going photojournalism for the spirit

Hi. It’s me. Ashel.

At 16, I was flying single-engine planes by myself with high hopes of one day capturing a photo of Earth from outer space as an astronaut. I wanted to see it all.

Nowadays, I actually get to see it all—the weddings, the births, the graduations, the engagements, the celebrations, the baptisms, the day to day moments. 

Life is perfectly precious and it’s my job, and even more so my sincere honor, to capture it for others. Being behind the camera means I get to be at the front of life’s most memorable moments. I’m behind the scenes, in front of the memories.

how this works

1 . say hi

Send me a note! Let me know what type of photoshoot you are interested in… a short and sweet portrait session, a home lifestyle shoot, a family reunion, an adventure session? Another idea? Anything! From there, we will schedule a time and place!

2 . do the thing

We have fun! No need to be intimidated by the session. It’s just us having a good time! I make sure to keep sessions active so you don’t have to worry about standing in one place too long, overthinking what to do with your hands. I’m there to help you actually enjoy the shoot! My goal is for you to have a hard time picking your favorite images when you get your gallery! 😉

3 . enjoy

You get your photos. You will receive your images via an online gallery for you to look through and choose your favorites, download, share, and even order prints directly from my favorite print labs if you’d like! It’s that easy.

Let’s get to know each other.

I love Sedona and apparently that sweater because it has now made it into the two photos of myself on this page. And that’s just a tad bit about me. Now let’s hear about you! Send me a note!
