Now rooted in New Orleans, I’ve created Nola Darlings, a company that strives to create beautiful imagery that’s inclusive of all people.

Ashley did such an amazing job! Ashley made us feel comfortable, had great suggestions for pictures and was incredibly professional. The turnaround for the pictures was really quick and we had pictures that we loves. It was such a privilege to have her be part of our engagement pictures. Cannot recommend enough. More...

Ashley was wonderful - we had her take photographs for our unconventional backyard wedding with our parents, which involved shots indoors and outdoors, which all turned out beautifully. She was also very helpful with directions for staged photos. Can't recommend her enough! More...

Did a Halloween photoshoot with Ashley yesterday and it was awesome! Aside from the fact that she is a great photographer, she also is an amazingly nice human being! Hope to shoot with her again!

Incredible. That's the experience you receive when you work with Ashley. Prompt, professional, flexible... she was super easy to work with. The value given far exceeded any cost. If you need a photographer in the NOLA area, look no further. She is the one I'm calling every time I'm out there. Ashley, thank you so much for the stunning engagement photos. You captured such a special moment in my life, and the results were next level. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Wishing you the massive success you deserve!! You're AMAZING!!

Ashley did an engagement shoot for me and my fiancé Matt, and we could not be more pleased with the results! She was the perfect mix of professional and charming. She has an incredible eye for color and composition, and she came ready with pose ideas. We felt completely at ease working with her. I highly recommend Ashley to anyone who wants a fun photoshoot experience as well as a beautiful photo set! More...


I strive to make my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. I want them to feel like we're friends meeting again and having some laughs. Somewhere in there they forget that we're making magical photos together. This is when the shift happens. This is the secret.

What are some styles you gravitate towards? Do you have a Pinterest board of your dream wedding or photo session? What can I do to make this experience special for you?

Connecting with people! I love meeting new folks and hearing their stories. I also love when the shift happens and you can tell that they've let their guard down. This is when the amazing photos start to happen.

I've wanted to be a photographer since middle school. My first digital camera took floppy disks. After traveling around the world and the country, I knew that New Orleans was home for me, I also knew that I was ready to jump in and start my own photography business.

If you want amazing photos that you can cherish for the rest of your life and you want to feel like the experience of taking them was effortless and comfortable, choose me!
