Permission to Speak.

Ever since I was a kid I knew I wanted to be a speaker.

Courtnee - I LOVE this! God gave you that voice for a reason, don’t you dare shy away from it to please others. You were made to make an impact, and your loud voice is a part of your story!

Jessie - Hi Ashley,

Love your photos. Was wondering how you meter…do you take an incident reading or reflective? And do you point it towards the subject or away? Do you meter for the shadow? Just bought my light meter and trying to get a hold of it!

Thanks so much,
