Well Hello There!


Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.

-Don McCullin

My name is Ash! I am so stoked that you found me! I specialize in capturing life’s moments. Although I am in Plano, Texas I serve all over the DFW area, you can also book me for travel within the state of Texas and anywhere in the US.

May you have the courage to go to places that scare you


   I started Ashleigh Orchid Photography three years ago, but I have been involved with photography my entire life starting at a young age. I would go on to take Photojournalism, yearbook, photography, and advanced photography in Highschool. After my daughter was born in 2006, I went into Education for 13 years teaching Early Childhood. As much as I loved teaching, I could not help but feel like this was not my direction. I resigned in 2017 three years after having my son and I have been living my dream ever since! When I am not taking photos, I am taking photos and going on adventures with my two children. I love going to live concerts and singing to music loudly in my car. I love being out in nature and I love the Ocean. Being originally from Northern California (Napa) I love going back and visiting with my very large family every summer. I have lived in Texas on and off since I was 9 and I happily call it my home. I have two dogs and a cat and would have all the animals of all different kinds if I could. People would describe me as down to earth, hippie, chill, and a great listener. I always say if you aren't an asshole we will get along great!



    In a world centered around selfies and filters, my purpose is to provide you with timeless images you can leave as heirlooms for your family for lifetimes to come.

            This is where you come in! During a session with me I can promise you laughter, adventure, and fun! I can promise you there will be no dull moments and it will never be uncomfortable or awkward. I can promise you no matter how not photogenic you may think you are; I can assure you this is a lie. If you are wanting to book me for your wedding or event I can promise you we will have a blast and I will cry along with you and involve myself in any dance line you decide to have at your reception because engaging with my clients and their families is important to me. You, my client and your precious memories are important to me.
