Photographing Life & Love | Ashley Grimes Photography | Hello Word

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me! My name is Ashley, I am a mom, wife, educator, and photographer. I am fully licensed and insured for the state of Washington. Additionally, I am a proud member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Western Washington University and a Master’s Degree from Concordia University in Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Mathematics. I have taken many photography courses, including ones specifically for hand retouching portraits, Birth Photography and Birth Videography.

My husband and I have been married for 11 years and have an eight-year-old boy, four-year-old boy, and two-year-old girl. I love all things crafty, reading, working out (if I have time), continuing my education and of course photography! I can easily get lost looking through pins on Pinterest. You’ll always find dark chocolate in my kitchen and a vanilla coconut milk latté in my hand. Most of all, I love being outside playing in the sun with my husband and kids. Since we live in the pacific northwest, sometimes we have to put on rain boots and stomp in the puddles instead…

Photography quickly became a love and passion of mine after having our third child and needing a creative outlet during my studies for college. The artist in me needed a reason to explore outside and breathe life into an image. When photographing my children, I fell head over heels with capturing the light that gets caught in their eyes. There is something so beautiful about a picture that captures light and love all at one time. Throughout my photography journey, I have found to appreciate the small details of life. I look at people from new angles and focus on their beauty. Birth photography is a great example of this. There is nothing more powerful and emotion filled, than witnessing and capturing life entering this world. Birth Photography is my calling and passion. I truly feel that each and every Mother needs to see how strong they are and how beautiful their birth is...

Currently, I live in Bremerton, Washington. The majority of my photography takes place in Kitsap County Washington, but I am available for surrounding areas. I love to visit new places and explore new areas to photograph.

Everything in my life has lead me to where I am now… Life is a journey, and I would be honored to encapsulate precious moments along the way for you through photographs.

Wholeheartedly,

Ashley

TESTIMONIALS

“After a difficult labor and delivery, I am so grateful to have the beautiful images that Ashley captured. She focused on small details that could have been forgotten over time. The best part of having Ashley as our birth photographer was the positivity and warmth that she brought to the delivery room, especially as everything with the birth wasn’t going as planned. We never could have known that hiring Ashley as our photographer was also hiring a cheerleader, and a source of support during our most difficult experience. Thank you so much, Ashley!”

“I highly recommend Ashley Grimes Photography! It’s been incredible to work with Ashley! She’s captured so far, our second pregnancy ((announcement + maternity)) & soon she’ll be capturing our little girl’s arrival! I am looking forward to all our future sessions with her as well! Ashley has such an amazing eye for capturing in the moment photos & detail! When I say detail, she’ll capture a photo that you as the client won’t think about getting captured. ((Which makes her such a phenomenal photographer)) If you come to your session with ideas in mind, Ashely will do all she can to make your vision come to life! Thank you Ashley for capturing my family with your photos that we are able to cherish and look back on! So blessed to have found someone we are so comfortable with & makes our sessions so fun and personal!”

“Ashley has taken our Christmas, maternity, baby shower, birth, and newborn/family photos. Every single time I am blown away by her fabulous work and attention to details. She is a teacher and mother as well and is absolutely fantastic with kids, which always makes our children feel comfortable with her! We have 4 children making it difficult to get them to look all at the same time, and yet somehow she manages to take beautiful photos them. I have always loved posed photos because I have never been able to find a photographer that can capture candid moments without making them look forced or awkward. Ashley is able to take several “in-the-moment” photos that are natural and she does it effortlessly. We have worked with numerous photographers in the past, all wonderful as well, but Ashley brings something to these photos that take your breath away. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting stunning photos that you will absolutely cherish forever!”

“I started out feeling very nervous for my boudoir shoot, but those nerves quickly turned into excitement and confidence thanks to Ashley’s energy and positive feedback. Not only was she easy and fun to work with, she also has a unique eye. I am beyond pleased with my images and cannot wait to work with Ashley again.”
