About me


"Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies." - Diane Arbus

Ashley McBroom - the face behind the photography studio

Hi! Thanks for stopping in to take a look at my work! I’m an award-winning children’s, newborn, and family photographer and my goal is to create heirloom quality artwork for you through a session that is FUN! In February 2020, I was named the Photographer of the Year by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. Still pinching myself about that one.

I’m Ashley McBroom, a wife and mom of four here in the Atl. (Yes, I have my hands really full, and no, I’m really not cool enough to call it “the Atl”.) I was born and raised in Georgia and I graduated from Georgia Tech – Go Jackets! Afterwards I spent 10 years in the Bay Area in California where I met my husband and where we had our first two kiddos.

When I’m not photographing (or getting paler and paler by the moment editing in my dark office), you can find me playing board games with my kids -which we all have the tendency to take a little too seriously at times! -, getting someone down for a nap, cooking, or hiking with my family or friends. I love coffee, sunshine, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, Anthropologie, and red wine. I’m an extrovert, and if I stay indoors too long without company I tend to go a little crazy.

I want our time together to be enjoyable and relaxed. My sessions are even dad-proof, they almost always walk away surprised by how painless it was! 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 encourage natural connections during sessions and I strive for genuine smiles and interaction. If I’m 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!
