Working one-on-one with a client is always such a joy. It allows me to really get to know a client during our session and from there we can make some amazing images. Case in point is my model headshots session with Ashley Wade.
Ashley is a fitness professional and model, signed with Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited. When Ashley contacted me, she was visiting Portland (from her home base in Texas) for a couple weeks and was interested in booking a model headshots session. In our short time together, I quickly learned that Ashley is as strong as she is beautiful. She is a natural leader and lives to better her life and the lives of those around her.
Ashley’s Instagram feed–featuring workout inspiration and ideas–has over 14,000 followers (myself included!) that are inspired by her daily posts on fitness and healthy lifestyle. She is fierce in the gym and also finds amazing balance as a mama.
Ashley is one of those amazing spirits that is just a joy to be around. Honestly. She has an infectious smile, and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. The day before our session she had busted her butt (literally!) at the gym–to the point she could barely move. The day of our model headshots session, her glutes hurt, her quads hurt, and her hamstrings hurt. However, ever the professional, she didn’t slow down. We just giggled as she made her way around Northwest Portland and made everything look effortless.
If Ashley looks a little familiar, it is no coincidence. When not at the gym, she is in front of the camera for a number of national retailers and brands. Keep an eye out for her…
