I'm Ashlee Tomes (sounds like "Toms"). I photograph fun, laid back people to create joyful, natural & storytelling images! From your growing belly to your graduating senior, I'm here to celebrate all of your family's precious moments!
After losing my only daughter, London, I understand the value of a moment that will never come again. It’s my mission to honor London while celebrating life & love! Thank you so much for being here!
You may be wondering what in the world "Lifestyle Photography" is! I'm sure you remember those family portraits from your childhood. You know, the ones where everyone was perfectly still, every hair was in place, chins were tilted just right...and smiles were as fake as ever! It was obvious that everyone was miserable! Haha! Yes, they're our memories - good or bad - but those stiff photos do nothing to display connection, love & joy! We grew up thinking that the only "good" pictures worth keeping were the ones where everyone was looking & smiling at the camera!
Lifestyle Photography disrupts every one of those old-school ideas! It highlights the fun, happiness (and craziness) of life! :) It embraces wind-blown hair, belly laughs and tight hugs! And it even says it's okay if you're not looking at the camera! You may not be used to this idea, but I guarantee that when you see the beautiful story that is captured at your session, you will never ever go back to those stiff, lifeless photos! Plus, you may actually find that photo sessions can be fun!!
"we all absolutely loved you...your attention to detail & your energy is amazing! the love you have for what you do just radiates, and I couldn't be happier with our experience!"
