Give me a girl...

My first blog as a woman in business. I never thought I would be a blogger, but I always knew I'd be in business. I never knew I'd be a photographer, but I always knew I'd have to create.

I’ve always been a talker though, so I suppose the blogger part makes sense. 

For my first go, I think it’s only appropriate to write about my mission for Ashley Nielsen Studio and although a lot of who I am will creep in - my business what my studio represents, is you. 

And “you” means women. And “you’ means mother.

I photograph womanhood and motherhood in all its forms.

Who I am

Ashley Nielsen. I'm a believer, wife, mom and portrait photographer. I live in the small town of Westbrook Connecticut with my husband, three little boys, two dogs and six chickens.

What I do

I photograph women and mothers, but I know that most women have people in their life that they would love to be photographed with.

I shoot families, newborns, seniors, children, and glamour/boudoir.

What I create

I create art for your walls! I shoot for your walls or shoot a story for your albums. I do not shoot with the intention of creating files on your computer. You will get digital files, but more importantly, we will create artwork together.

What you will experience

A process like no other. There are many photographers out there, many that I look up to and admire. However, I aim to make my portrait experience truly unique, about you, creative and all-inclusive.

Give me a window, a camera, and a girl.
