WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT
"Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies." - Diane Arbus
Hi! Thank you for stopping in to take a look at my work!
I’m Ashley McBroom, a wife and mother of two little boys, Landon and Sutter, here in the Atlanta area. I was born and raised in Georgia and I graduated from Georgia Tech – Go Jackets! After college I spent 10 years in the Bay Area in California where I met my husband and where we had our boys. Although I couldn’t be happier about being back home in the south, California still holds a special place in my heart.
I worked in marketing and advertising after college, and while I wouldn’t trade the years of hustle and hubbub working for a big ad agency in San Francisco for anything, it is with photography that I found my passion. I bought my first DSLR in 2010 in anticipation of the birth of my first son and I’ve been hooked since. To me, capturing a moment is half of the joy and the other half comes from editing it to achieve my artistic vision – I simply adore it.
When I’m not photographing or editing, you can find me playing board games with my kids (which we all have the tendency to take a little too seriously at times!), enjoying a tennis match with my husband, doing any and every type of craft, or exploring local hiking trails with my family or friends. I love coffee, sunshine, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, Anthropologie, and red wine. I’m an extrovert and I absolutely have to get out and about often to fuel myself and my creative pursuits.
My clients often tell me at the end of their session “This was the best photographer experience we have ever had!” or “This was actually fun!” My goal is to make our time together as enjoyable and relaxed as possible. I don’t expect your children to sit perfectly still and I don’t expect you to know how to stand or where to look – that’s what I’m there for! I will encourage natural connections during our session and I strive for genuine smiles and interaction. If I am photographing your children, we’ll play lots of games and I’m not afraid to make a total fool out of myself to get the best shot. I view my clients as my friends and I love creating magic together.
I’d love to get to know you and have the honor of photographing you and your loved ones!
