Ashley- how to define myself? Urban Dictionary says I am a bad ass chick and I like that.   

Above all else I am a wifey and mama.   My husband Russell is my biggest supporter and #1 fan.   We have two babies- Aerya our 7 year old sassy girl, and Nixon the 3 year old class clown.   We also have two german shepherd babies- Harley and Rey-Rey.

 I drink so much coffee that I think it may run through my veins at this point.  I am obsessed with Harry Potter, and all things nerdy. Norah Jones speaks to my soul - but Da Baby speaks to me after a few drinks.  I have been behind a camera since I was twelve years old, and havent been able to put it down since.
