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.

You did it… You purchased that nice DSLR and yet your pictures just are not coming out like you’d hoped. Are you stuck in automatic mode? You hear words like “aperture”, “shutter speed” and “ISO” and feel lost? Are you captivated by photographs that tell a story? Do you dream of capturing the beauty of your everyday life? If so, this workshop is for you!  
I am thrilled to be able to encourage you along the way to freedom from the “automatic” mode as you learn all about how to capture beauty on your own terms!  
I absolutely LOVE photography and my passion extends to seeing others thrive and grow in their knowledge of this beautiful art!  I remember very well how amazing it felt when it all “clicked” for me! Let me help you feel that way, too!
What you need to participate: a dslr camera and an open mind!
