My name is Ashley Elliott, I was born and raised right here in central Maine and currently live in Hermon and LOVE IT! I love Maine & the diversity in it’s landscape; it’s one of my favorite things about being a photographer here. My husband is James and my children are Lily and Finn!
As a mother, my love for photography grew after meeting the most beautiful, chunky little baby in the world, my daughter Lily. My career as a portrait photographer began in 2009 when I accepted a position photographing newborns at a local hospital, on the maternity ward, documenting precious new life. I would enter the mamas rooms just hours after they gave birth and photograph their sweet newborns and families. I couldn’t get enough of apturing those first moments and seeing how much joy and emotion in brings out in people. About 1 year later, I started my business, Ashley Erin Photography! At the time, my now husband and I were not married yet, so I decided to use my middle name since I knew my last would change soon (for those wondering, Erin is my middle name!)
I’ve had the opportunity to grow from not only a portrait photographer, but a wedding and event photographer as well. In the summers of 11′ and 12′, I spent many weekends assistant shooting weddings at every chance I could in hopes to improve my skills before diving into weddings on my own. I’m always learning and challenging myself to keep up with trends as well as maintain a classic look that will carry my work through the generations ahead. In 2012, I began shooting weddings by myself! I absolutely love it!
My hope is for all of you to feel that you’ve walked away with a pleasant and memorable experience. I want you to LOVE your experience as well as your images!
