This was so much fun! I photographed Ashley when she was 14 and I can’t believe she is a senior this year.
Ashley is one of those special few who really feel comfortable in front of the camera naturally. I have to really screw up to make a bad image of her…. We spent an evening in Boulder shooting in alleys, fire escapes and other out of the way locations. With the help of Ashley’s mom Jayna, hair, makeup and clothing changes were a snap. I was having so much fun we shot into the dark ending with Ashley and her super cool 1964 Camero. I could have spent the whole day just shooting her and the Camero together.
Ashley has an impressive social awareness, especially for someone her age. She raises money for many non-profit organizations locally and internationally. Her 16th birthday party was filmed by MTV as it was a huge party where all presents were donated to a local woman’s shelter. Ashley has dreams of being a Congresswoman; and I wouldn’t put this past her. She continues to amaze Kathy and I.
