Hello! We are Ashley and Mr. Karl – the personalities behind Ashley Made Photography. We have been married for 9 years, and have enough kids to start a basketball team! (No, really! They’re all ours!) Ashley specializes in newborn, children, and family photography. One of her passions is working with families who have been blessed with a child with Down syndrome. We are the photographers for you if you’re looking for two people that are passionate about doing more than just taking your picture. We are fully invested in continually improving our skills and your experience. We love building relationships and getting to know your family. We don’t want you to feel like “just a client” and we hope not to be just another photographer on your list. We want to be YOUR photographers. If you’re looking for a couple of baby-loving, uber-patient, crazy-enough-to-do-what-ever-it-takes people who will love on your kids the way you do and get you awesome images in the process, then we’re your people!
