Hi! I'm Ashley Summers.

 

I believe that every family deserves to have pictures that document moments in time that pass all to quickly. I have made it my personal passion to capture a family's essence in a fun, interactive way. 

Lifestyle photography is a big term but I think it comes down to taking pictures of those moments in between. The silly looks, the smirk or even a pout. During a session with me you will feel relaxed and at ease as I gently guide you to help bring out true personality in your photos. I specialize in working with kids as I have two little ones of my own. I love interacting with them, goofing around, and letting them be themselves. My approach is to have fun without the pressure to perform or smile perfectly (but don't worry, I always get those shots too). I have many tricks up my sleeves to bring out the giggles and smiles in everyone, no matter the age. 

Personally, I get plenty of practice shooting lifestyle at home with my two amazing kids, Diem (5) and Oakley (3). I'm a Chicagoland native and moved back four years ago to Downers Grove. BK (before kids) I spent two years trekking & taking pictures around the globe with my husband Jason.
