Ashley Nicole Photography | Columbia SC Newborn and Family Photographer » Ashley Nicole Photography is an on location, natural light photography studio specializing in family, child and newborn photography based in Columbia South Carolina.



Hello! Thanks for visiting!  I’d love to introduce myself… honestly, I think Instagram is onto something with making us describe ourselves in 150 characters or less, so I’ll do that here:

in love with Jesus. wife. mom to 4. photographer. lover of light, details and raw emotion.  joy seeker. orphan advocate. mission minded. creamy tea junkie.

yes. that felt good… but here is a little more about what you really want to know about me:

my business started in 2011, but blew up to a full time gig in 2013. A huge reason for that was working to find my style and what set me apart as an artist… I’m best known for my lifestyle/photojournalistic and detail driven style. My work is modern portrait and lifestyle photography and I love natural light, shooting at sunset, sweet details, capturing the natural connections, watching families just being real with each other.  I love finding the moments of real life and love that you are NOT looking at my camera, the moments when your family is just being you… fun, chaotic, crazy, full of all the feels. Honestly, that is what I look for in photography for my own family, and that is what I give my clients.  In the end, we will likely both walk away feeling like our time together was all about your love as a family and that is just the feeling that makes me love what I do!

I love to shoot on location outdoors in a field, an urban setting (my favorite is on top of a parking garage!), in client’s homes, and in my studio in Forest Acres area of Columbia, South Carolina.

This is my little troop… my husband is amazing (plus an AWESOME guitarist) and these four kiddos are the sweetest in the world!
