Ashley Wentz Photography

Meet Ashley

Ashley has a passion for capturing newborns in a pure and natural way.  She uses natural colors and simplistic poses to keep focus on what's most important--the baby.   "Baby-guided" philosophy is used during her natural newborn sessions; which means if baby wants to be awake for most of the session then she focus on capturing sweet, bright-eyed shots.  Whether baby is awake or asleep for the session, she aims to deliver timeless images that will become a treasured heirloom. 


Hello!  If you're here, hopefully that means you love beautiful newborn portraits (me too!) and you are considering investing in preserving those first precious moments of your own little one.                                                I have such a passion for capturing the wonder and awe of New Life!  

     I'm a southwestern Michigan native and currently live there with my handsome hubby of 10 years, our 2 young sons {proud to be a "boy mom"}, and 1 CrAzY Pug!  I'm a semi-retired Registered Nurse, and now stay home to raise our kiddos and be behind my camera as often as I'd like {almost always!}   When I'm not chasing light, capturing sweet babies or my own little men, you might find me in the kitchen baking something yummy from scratch or.......well, that's about it because I have a 1 & 3 year old that run on energizer batteries.  Oh coffee, I love strong coffee & espresso, and my ideal day out includes meeting a good friend for a latte and browsing antiques.



 I have a love for capturing the details of your brand new baby and freezing those moments in time for your family.  I use light, neutral colors and simplistic poses to keep the focus on what's most important {your baby}.   A "Baby-guided" philosophy is used during my natural newborn sessions; which means that no pose is forced, baby stays comfortable, and safety is my number one priority.  I work hard to capture sleeping, squishy posed shots of your little bundle.....but I also welcome awake time during our session.   Bright-eyed shots are always a favorite,  and the first glimpse into your baby's personality.  Beyond Posed Sessions, I offer in hospital sessions, or am happy to come to your home to capture your baby in his or her new surrounding and bonding with family.  Whatever session type you are interested in, I will provide your family with timeless images that will become a treasured heirloom.   Warning--I will swoon over and absolutely adore your precious baby during our session, because meeting babies never gets old---they are so unique, captivating, and fearfully & wonderfully made!
