and Since high school I've had a love for photography. I loved taking pictures of my little cousins to the point I made my dad build a darkroom in our garage! Unfortunately, life happened and I had to go to college and quickly forgot about my passion for photography, boo!!! It wasn't until the birth of my daughter that I remembered how much I loved, and missed, taking photos. I bought a new digital camera, one I didn't know much about since back in my day we used film, hopefully some of you remember what that is! I began setting her up for photo shoots, which she loved, NOT!! As a new mom of course I was taking photos of her daily. It wasn't until I started looking back at these that I noticed how much she was changing. It was unreal! I was already beginning to forget all of those little newborn features. They're there for such a short time. You tell yourself you're never going to forget her 'oooos and 'aaaahhhhs, or sweet wrinkles and dimples, but time goes on and those memories soon fade. That's when I decided I wanted to pursue newborn photography to capture all these fleeting moments.
I started Ashley Wilder Photography in December of 2014 originally in Bedford, Indiana. I soon moved it into a studio in Paoli, Indiana. My studio is my happy place :)
