specializing in documentary style family photography

Welcome! My name is Ashley Martin, and this is a portfolio of my family and children photography. I believe in the power of small moments. I believe that quiet Saturday afternoons are just as memorable as that photo you paid for, all of your kids in matching sweaters, beautifully backlit on a woodland bridge. I believe in the beauty of ice cream on kids' faces, in daughters never too old to cuddle on the couch with mom. I believe that pets are members of the family. Mostly, I believe that every day brims with memories to cherish. I hope you will allow me to capture them in photos you will love to look back on.

"Ashley really captured the natural look of our family. The photos of my children have truly genuine smiles. Ashley's patience and understanding helped to coax out their better natures and her expertise literally shows them in the best light." --Judy S., Canton, OH

Documentary style portraiture is my true love. Creating photos you will love for years to come requires a few simple but vital ingredients: 1. a full day with your family, preferably with your home as a starting point, but including soccer games, play dates or whatever is on the family schedule for that day 2. a relaxed atmosphere; documentary style photos aim to capture the beauty of authentic moments--no one needs to be in their 'Sunday best' clothes. Nor should anyone be expected to be on their best behavior!
