“Our photography session with Ashley was a pleasant and comfortable experience! She captured the perfect moments with my daughter for her one year birthday photo session. Now we have a lifetime of memories we will cherish forever. I highly recommend her for any occasion to photograph your special memories.” ~ Susan Lamont

 “Ashley Yvonne Photography you are the BEST PHOTOGRAPHER ever and I thank you for all your hard work and dedication that you put into our family photos and all of your photo sessions. You are an amazing person!!!!” ~ Kim McGreal

 “I have to say I’m very picky when it comes to professional pictures and also as my husband and I are first time parents we want things to be perfect for our Son.

“I like things to look like it’s right out of the pages of a magazine! When I saw Ashley’s photos I knew right away that I wanted her to do photos of our son and when we were at her studio I knew we were in great hands. The way she was so patient with our Son and so gentle as he slept the whole shoot. I loved how she took her time to position the baby just right without waking him and when he woke she knew how to soothe him right back to sleep and could continue her work. The whole time we were there I just kept thinking to myself, “wow she knows what she’s doing and she is great with newborns”, ours was only 12 days old! I’d definitely recommend Ashley Yvonne Photography to anyone with their photo needs, especially newborns and young children but no matter what she does an amazing job!” ~ Sinoeun Rith Farrell

“I’ve always had the best experiences over the past 8 years with this photographer. From engagement photos, maternity sessions, newborn pictures and now family portraits, I’ve never been disappointed. The quality and professionalism I have received is second to none. I will continue to use Ashley Yvonne Photography in the future and I highly recommend their service.” ~ Virginia Dorsch

“Our experience with Ashley was wonderful. We had to reschedule due to sickness and weather and she was more than accommodating. Picture taking with a toddler and an 8 month old takes a special kind of talent and patience that not many people possess; Ashley does so with ease. She was able to capture moments that I will cherish for a lifetime. “~ Yvonne Fichter

Tampa Photographer Perspective on Us

A group of photographers around the states started a Twelve by Twelve Project in which each month we will write and take photos about a monthly topic. Our first topic is “Us”. I thought about making this about my husband and I but when I started thinking about the happiness in our marriage. I think about how I came to be so happy with him. It started with me.

Did you know that the information definition of “us” is “me”?

To be really happy with someone else, it starts with you as an individual. You have to be happy with yourself and by yourself.

I learned quite a few years ago that I had to and wanted to be the best version of myself. I wanted to try new things, learn new things and see new things.  So I set out to make myself the woman I wanted to be. This was the primary reason I took my photography from a hobby to a Tampa Small Business.

I always wanted to travel to Europe, so I booked a 21 day Trip to 6 different countries within Europe. I took up learning to play a new instrument, the guitar. I always wanted to take lessons but never just did it. I also downloaded any and every course on the Spanish language.

Lets just say, till this day I only know a few songs on the guitar and I can understand minimal Spanish but that’s just fine with me because I have the experience. I took that Europe trip and found my love for traveling. The most important fact is that I took my passion to a full time Tampa photography business. The experiences from that time period have stayed with me. They’ve “cultured” me and made me appreciate so much beyond my personal life.

Every now and then, when my every day routine gets away from me. I sit down and create new music, get crafty, try a new restaurant, etc.

Tampa is full of great classes. Start doing research. Try a sushi class, cake decorating, language class, photography class, painting, etc.

“Live your dreams and take risks.”

Take a look at the next photographer featured in our Series for this month- Laurel Photography.

Tampa Kid Photographer Inspirational Moments

We all know that our moods can rub off on each other. You can wake up and be in the best mood and unfortunately, run into someone that is in a terrible mood and it all of a sudden is affecting you. We are probably all guilty of doing this even if we weren’t aware. It’s understandable that our day to day stresses can affect us. We each have a lot going on and sometimes don’t have the time to ourselves that we need to relax and process our day.  What’s nice is that we can control our emotions and help to spread this joy instead of this stress.

Personally, I have a lot in my life that could cause me stress. I am the Owner/Photographer of Ashley Yvonne Photography, a successful Tampa photography studio, as well as the Owner/ Designer of Posh Events of Tampa Bay, a premier Tampa Event Rentals company. I can get weighed down with the pressures of owning two small businesses in Tampa and sometimes it does get to me. In the end, I know I need to set a schedule, stick to that schedule and make time for my wonderful husband, my family and my friends. At the same token, I need time just to myself. Processing your day is important. Processing how you’re going to tackle the rest of the week is also important. 2015 will be a big year for me because I’ve already scheduled my first six months of photography sessions, blogs, social media posts, etc and I plan to stick to that schedule.

However you decide to de-stress, make sure you do this at least once a week and focus on sticking to a schedule. Find new ways to take your mind off things. Read a book, take a bath, sit on your front porch and people watch or go play with your dog.  May your 2015 be the best yet!

South Tampa Hospital Birth Photographer

Every time I put together a Birth Video for one of my Tampa Births, it makes me smile and I feel so happy to be apart of such a big moment in someone’s life. These videos are so magical to me because in a moment of excitement, anxiety, and wonder, it’s the best feeling to be next to a family to witness and share in the day. It is such a beautiful moment when your significant other is holding your hand right before your baby is about to enter the world.

Shannon called me a few weeks prior to her daughter’s birth realizing how important Birth Photos would be to her sweet baby girls first moments. These are moments your daughter will be able to share in when she’s older and she can share them with her children and their children. Shannon you’ve given her one of the best gifts!

I hope you enjoy the Birth Video along with some photos from Sweet Baby Girl Nora’s First Day.
