About the owner
Hello gorgeous! I'm Ashley, your brand photography fairy godmother, master complementer and female empowerer. I am from the fantastic city of Austin, Texas but I now live just south in Buda, TX.
I have a husband and a young daughter. When I'm not taking pictures, I am chasing around my daughter (and trying to take her picture), Netflix and chillin' with my husband, baking ugly (yet delicious) cupcakes or pinning to my gazillion boards on Pinterest!
In addition to my photography business, I have a female empowerment podcast called The Girl Power Interviews . The Girl Power Interviews podcast is dedicated to educating, inspiring and empowering women through compelling storytelling and conversation.
Westward Way Photography is what compelled me to start the podcast. I had originally created it as portfolio for my writing and photography but it eventually grew into something bigger and better and GLOBAL! My photography business is what sparked the LOVE for empowering other women, such as yourself.
I have always sought for ways to tell stories, whether that was through writing, music, or photography. Storytelling enriches life for us all, and your business is no different.
I would love to hear about your unique brand, your stories, and how I can help connect you and your audience through authentic imagery.
