My super power is finding the most magical light and creating images you'll fall madly in love with . . . well that, and being able to quote every line from f.r.i.e.n.d.s . . .

Ashley was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! She was patient, kind, and so efficient!!! Our preview was delivered next day & we couldn’t be more thankful we found her to capture our family! We will definitely be using her again on our next adventure out to CO!" 

"Absolutely amazing!"

"Thanks Ashley! We love them! I posted one as my Facebook profile pic and someone commented “this looks like it could be the cover of a magazine” :) . Thanks again!"

"Could be on the cover of a magazine!"

Not only did Ashley McKee capture amazing moments and images of our family, her positivity and personality were contagious. This made for the most relaxed and fun shoot our family could have asked for. Ashley's lighthearted demeanor put our kids, and me, at ease, and the moments of joy and fun she captured stemmed from this relaxed atmosphere. This coupled with her eye and talent led to a truly spectacular shoot and beautiful pictures.

"A truly spectacular shoot!"



- Makenzie Sullivian

"We absolutely love our photos! Ashley was easy to shoot with and got great photos of our energetic young children. I got exactly what I was looking for; soft, naturally lit dreamy sunset fall photos. She knew where the best shots would be, and how to pose everyone for lots of variation and unique photos. Highly recommend! Can’t wait to frame and print these in a photo book."

"Soft, naturally lit dreamy fall photos!"

- Maria Tirone

"It was an absolute pleasure having Ashley McKee photograph me for my keynote speaker website. Ashley is a joy to work with. She made me feel completely at ease during my photo shoot, therefore capturing my personality in the photos. I highly recommend Ashley as a professional photographer for any occasion. She is incredibly gifted! Thank you, Ashley McKee Photography."

"Made me feel completely at ease!"

I 100% recommend using Ashley for any of your photography needs!!! I booked a mini session for my dog and I and I am absolutely in LOVE with every single image! She was so kind and patient through the entire process. When working with a photographer you want someone who is personable, easy and fun and that is exactly what Ashley is! She had great ideas for cute shots and our photos are light, airy and bright-EXACTLY the look I was wanting! Additionally, I’ve been suffering from a brain injury and my memory is very poor so she had to remind me to sign documents and things which she should not have had to do, but her patience with me regarding that was beyond appreciated during a very hard time in my life. Don’t hesitate to book with her TODAY. Life is short. Capture those memories that will last your lifetime 😉

"in LOVE with every single image!"



- Hannah Freese

"Choosing Ashley McKee Photography was the best business decision. She really listened and intuitively knew what I was trying to create, even better than I did! I was so nervous but you'd never know it from the natural, beautiful pictures. I will certainly be working with her in the future as my business grows, in no small part to her photography."

Natural Beautiful photos!"



- Jennifer Koss

"Ashley was wonderful to work with and we loved our family photos! We had such a blast getting them done. She was great with our 9 month old as well! Turnaround for photos was also very quick. We look forward to hopefully working with her again some day!"

We had a blast!"



- Delphine Jadot

"Ashley McKee is a very talented photographer. She has a gift to make you feel comfortable with the camera, even if you are camera shy! She will take the time she needs and make sure she is in tune with the sunlight. Our pictures are stunning. I had a professional and family session and loved all my pictures. The only challenge is to choose the ones to print because you will love them all. Thank you Ashley for giving us self esteem and confidence to stand in front of your camera."

Our pictures are stunning!"
