Holy moly – it’s been waaaaaay too long since I’ve blogged! So much goodness came from 2022, and I can’t wait to see what 2023 holds for Ashley Lauren Photography. Last year brought new and previous clients, and I’m over the moon to see who is going to be in front of my camera this […]

As a business owner, I am constantly learning new things from editing techniques, to posing babies, to marketing the best ways to meet my clients. This never-ending learning is one of the reasons I love this job so much. Maybe it’s the former teacher in me, but there’s something so fun about learning something new. […]

Hayden and his adorable family came to the studio to get some gorgeous shots of them as a new family of 4. We managed to get some solo shots of him as well, but I loved the family portion of this session! Sometimes clients ask if it costs more to do family shots at a […]

Good morning! The last time I blogged was before the holiday season of 2020, and I can’t believe we’re almost through the first month of 2021! I hope you’re enjoying some restful time with your loved ones this winter. As for me and mine, we’re definitely enjoying the slower pace of winter, but we’re also […]

Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Photographing some of your longest friends’ babies is such an honor! Christie and I were roommates all through college, and while we don’t live in close proximity anymore, I always love seeing her and picking up right where we left off. She’s added the cutest little guy to their already-adorable family, and I couldn’t be […]

Lincoln was such a cooperative and adorable little guy! He slept through his entire session, and his big brother loved being involved in his session, too. Having past newborns come back to visit as older siblings is such a fun reunion for me as a photographer! I can’t believe how grown up and older Gunnar […]

Oh, where do I even start with this sweet boy? This family holds a special place in my heart because they were one of those families that just “clicked” with me from the very beginning. Prior to Banx’s Fresh 48 session, we did a maternity session in the fall that was magical, to say the […]

Hopefully you had a chance to check out Leo’s birth story. I was fortunate enough to be able to head to Joe and Rachel’s house for a lifestyle session with them after they were settled in at home. Lifestyle sessions are a great way to incorporate subtle, yet meaningful details. Joe’s mom has passed away, […]

I’ve been meaning to blog this session for the longest time! Leo’s birth was one for the books! This was my very first birth that I photographed in which the parents didn’t know the gender of the baby ahead of time. It made it so exciting! Rachel was nothing short of incredible during this birth. […]

Oh, sweet Prestyn! She was so good during her newborn session, and I couldn’t be more excited to share some of my favorites. Mollie and Ben were amazing clients (and even better friends), who allowed me complete creative freedom during their session, and I love how it turned out! I was excited to use some […]
