I like to hold newborn baby photography session’s during the first 2 weeks after the baby’s birth. But that isn’t always possible. Sometimes there are issues that make it necessary to be flexible. This precious little man was almost 7 weeks by the time his family was able to bring him in for his session. But with a little work and patience, we were able to provide this family with portraits that will be so very very precious to them.

I felt so honored to photograph this family and to witness the love they have for one another. Baby boy’s grandmother was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Mom, is now caring for her new baby boy and her beloved mother. Despite all they are going through, their faith is strong and they still feel blessed. I am still so touched by their spirit and kindness and devotion to one another. I am so grateful they came to me for portraits and to contribute in any small way to a little happiness in their life.





This is a long overdue post! I have quite a backlog of posts for the blog. I am looking forward to sharing all these sessions with you and will post a few images from each one over the next couple of weeks. My business facebook page has been flooded with images and if you haven’t like that page – Ashley Ward Photography – please go do so! You won’t miss out on the latest over there:)

So, this session was for a very valued client. This was their third session with me and I was so happy to meet the latest precious girl to join their happy brood. The newest daughter was around 7 months and sitting comfortably on her own. This is a perfect time for a baby session. This client decided since her first daughter had a studio session as a baby, and her second daughter had an in-home session as a baby, that doing a combination of both for the third daughter would be a good idea. So that is exactly what we did! I love baby photography sessions. The sitting stage is so precious and one of my favorites to document. Enjoy the images!

I am so excited about all the new bookings for this fall that I have received. I will be taking some vacation/holiday time this year so if you are planning on a session and would like image prior to the winter holidays, do not delay in setting that appointment. Call today at 803-348-3306 or email me at ashley@ashleywardphotography.com.





I love to witness the joy new parents feel. I worked with this couple to produce beautiful maternity images to capture mom’s pregnancy and now again, to photograph their newborn son! I don’t believe I have ever seen such amazing skin on a newborn before! His skin was almost flawless. He slept like a champ during his session, posed well, and gave us a few smiles too! I am especially partial to his basket images.
Thank you mom and dad, for the pleasure of working with your blooming family!

I sometimes get stumped thinking up titles for all the newborn baby photography session posts to my blog. After all they are all a “precious baby” and “a gift from heaven” and “beautiful”. But the images from this session that were my favorites inspired the title of this post quite easily. I consider myself a lover of all things 80s and this gorgeous little girl with the beautiful head of hair definitely qualified for the title of “Pretty In Pink”!

She was a very good girl for her at home photography session. I am quite behind on blogging the session as we have already completed the maternity session, the newborn session, and mom and dad have already received their beautiful portraits and birth announcements! I am quite sure all the family and friends have already been enjoying those announcements too! But I wanted to share some of her images here anyway, so you can see some of the work that has kept me so busy lately!

And although I have quite a few baby/maternity sessions left to blog, there will be quite a few beauty sessions coming to the blog soon. I hope you will enjoy looking through the images of the different sessions:)

And now….here she is….isn’t she….pretty in pink!
