You may recognize Simon and Ashley from the shoot I did in Hawaii last year! I always love working with this couple. Simon and Ashley are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet! This shoot will mark our third shoot together!
A few weeks ago, I got an email from Ashley asking if I would be able to do a shoot of her little family: Her, her husband Simon, and their adorable long-haired dachshund, Cooper :) Ashley wrote in her email that she realized that they don’t have any professional photos of them with Cooper, so it was time to remedy that! After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer early this year, I’ve been following Ashley’s story and progress as she’s been undergoing chemo for the past few months. I have been so inspired by Simon and Ashley and their optimism and determination to beat this thing and to live life to the fullest even during their challenging journey. They’ve been on my mind and in my prayers most every day and they continue to inspire me every day.
I had alot of fun seeing Simon and Ashley again, meeting sweet little Cooper, and photographing their little family on a beautiful, sunshiney day! I was so impressed by how well behaved Cooper was… I can’t imagine being able to let my dogs off their leashes! Haha! As always, Ashley’s smile was beaming… she looked gorgeous, radiant! And we can’t forget Simon! This guy is so kind and just pleasant to be around. Such a great guy! These two make my job easy every time I work with them :)
It was such an honor to take these photos for Simon and Ashley. I’m always excited for a chance to hang out with them! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their shoot!
