Hi! I'm Ashlie Sanders.

I am a natural light, on location, custom portrait photographer.  I just love using nature as my backdrop to capture treasured memories for your family. I grew up in the country of the North Carolina mountains on a farm, so being outside in nature is where my soul feels most alive. No artificial light can ever replace natural sunlight, the way it streams over the silhouette of your face, highlighting strands of hair, enhancing the sparkle in eyes, and giving a healthy glow to skin. I love the ocean and have always felt a little closer to God when peering into it’s vastness.  My idea of heaven is a warm summer afternoon on the beach with my family when the late streams of sunlight dance on the glassy, wet sand.

As a work-from-home mom, I enjoy the freedom that photography gives my life to be available for my young children.  I love spending time with my children.  My family is very important to me, and I try to savor these tender years while my kids are young.

As a photographer, I really love working with children of all ages.  I enjoy the challenge of getting active children to smile for the camera, and newborns are a sheer delight. For me, the most rewarding aspect of being a photographer is making my clients happy by providing the highest quality portraits for my clients that they will cherish for years to come.

Currently, I'm offering photography services for newborns, children, families, maternity and weddings.
I can’t wait to meet you and start capturing your family memories!
