Ashley was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest of British Columbia, Canada. She began writing at a young age, but over the years lost touch with her creative side until 7 years ago, when she picked up a camera while traveling through Canada and Europe as a flight attendant. She rekindled her love affair for the creative arts, and started writing again. Still living in the Pacific Northwest, and working for an incredible airline, she's shifted her focus from wedding photography to photojournalism.
