There is no doubt about that. Not only does Ashley at Ava Photography have a beautiful spirit, she uses the northern BC natural light to capture the beauty she sees in others.
Ashley tells us that her favourite part of photographing our northern BC families is the relationships she has built and the friends she’s made with her clients.

2018. You were my third year in business. You showed me that my fears of this industry can be conquered if I just believe in myself, my art and my vision. You gave me loyal clients who’s families I seen more then once and you introduced me to dozens of new ones. You gave me countless successes and showed me heartache. You were the year I needed for my heart and my soul but you’re also the year that i’m not sad to see go. One thing that stays the same is that my clients are the heartbeat of my business. They are the force supporting my passion, letting me create my vision, the drive behind my goals and the soul reason I do what I do. I can not begin to put the words together to explain what each and every one of my clients, supporters and followers mean to me but just know it’s more then I can explain. Thank you. If anything 2018 Top 9 shows my love for families, growing families and of course, sunsets. Happy New Years Everyone!
“Most of my clients come and see me every year for updated photos and it truly makes my heart feel so full to see families grow and change. I love catching up during a session and learning about all the new things they’ve been up to. Being able to deliver a gallery they can look back on to see how much their families have changed in a year is the greatest gift you can give.”
The friendships she has built before and after starting her journey through photography have built a community she feels lucky to be a part of.
In fact, when we asked her to nominate a northern BC photographer for us to feature, she couldn’t pick just one. And so she didn’t! She chose seven! This is great for our inspiration and great for you because it mean’s that there will be at least seven more Feature Friday’s for you to enjoy!
Some of her friend’s in the industry include:
Bree from Bree Orser Photography
Lindsay from Fourthwest Photography
Andrea from Petit Four Photography
Brittany and Tyler from BRing Photography
Rayven from Pristine Design Photography
Stephanie from Stephanie Tyton Photography
Tangena from Tangena Edmunds Photography
Plus she has inspired us to love all four seasons here in our northern BC home. Her absolute favourite thing about photographing is her developing love for all four seasons – yes, even the cold and wet ones. She says that she can shoot at the exact same location during winter, spring, summer and fall and it looks completely different each time. She’s right, we are lucky to be surrounded by such beauty – no matter the time of year.If Ashley isn’t falling in love with her clients shooting lifestyle family, newborns, fresh-48s or couples, in-studio minis’s, or enjoying the beautiful community she is a part of – you will find her vintage shopping or kicking back watching Netflix. Who doesn’t like to get their Netflix on.
I’ve also heard she has a mini addiction to Starbucks so it turns out we can be friends.
