I’m Ashley. Wife to husband Derek, and mama to 4 year old son Blake. I was born and raised an Ontario girl, but have lived in Cold Lake for 12 years and have come to love the area! I’m all about simplicity and minimalism in my home as well as my work. I love country music and traveling with my family!
Thanks for stopping by Ashley Blake Photography where I share my love of photographing families, children, couples and newborns with a ‘lifestyle’ approach.
Although I have always had a love and interest for photography, it quickly escalated after having my son, when I started a blog to document the trials, tribulations, and adventures of motherhood. I wanted to capture the sweet, everyday moments of parent life, and have beautiful images to hold onto these precious memories. I decided to take the leap and start my own photography business and look forward to making some beautiful artistic images with you!
My goal as a lifestyle photographer is to provide my clients with natural, ‘unposed’ moments that will be cherished forever. I love natural light and minimal props that truly capture emotion and love.
• What type of photographer are you?
I would consider myself a lifestyle + documentary photographer. I love documenting moments as they are and avoiding stiffness in poses. However I do try to incorporate some classic portraits during my sessions as well!
• Do you direct us?
Sort of. I will always get you in the right spot where the light is good and move you if I need to. But instead of telling you how to stand and 'look at the camera and smile!' I use subtle prompts to get more connection and evoke genuine emotion.
• How long until we receive our photos?
1-2 weeks but usually sooner!
• How do I book a session?
Send me a message through the 'contact' tab or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
• Do you have a studio?
No. I quickly realized when I started my business that studio photography was not for me. I prefer working outdoors or in my clients homes where your photos are completely personal and unique to YOU!
• Do we get a print release?
Yes! This means you can print and share to your hearts content. I do also offer the option to order prints through your gallery from my professional printer.
Upon booking a session, a $50 deposit is due to hold your session date. All session prices include up to 6 people. Please contact me for a custom extended family quote.
Travel fees may apply if session is outside of Cold Lake, but I do serve the entire Lakeland area and love to travel!
