​My name is Ashley, owner and photographer at Ashley Dawn. I am a Mom to two amazing kids and we reside in Ankeny, Iowa. I have been doing photography for over ten years now. I LOVE what I do! I am passionate about creating images that you will cherish forever. I want to make you feel something when you look at my photos. I just love LOVE in every form and love to capture it!
If you are looking for traditional, formal and super posed photos only, we may not be the right fit. I try to capture those moments that aren't necessarily planned, that show real emotion, that reflect your love in a real way. I will direct you and pose you, but I try to get you to be natural and have fun! Candids are my favorite, but don't worry, I will still get photos with everyone looking and hopefully smiling as well! 
Let's make some magic together!
