the storyteller

I’m Ashley, owner, and photographer here at Fly Away Photography. I am a 2013 graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead where I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. But I like to think of myself more as a storyteller than a photographer.

I’m a documenter and memory keeper. I’m a wife, a mother, and a dream chaser extraordinaire. I’m a verklempt free spirit with a never ending desire to learn, I drink way too much coffee, have developed a recent obsession with Barre3 classes, and I love my cats even though I’m mildly allergic. I'm always up for a game night or a quick hand of cards with friends and family. 

My job isn’t to simply take a photograph or create memories but to capture those that are already happening. The innocence of childhood, the union of those in love, the passage of time, and the everyday moments you simply can’t bear to forget. Photography is my passion, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to share it with all of you. I find there are few things as truly rewarding as getting to know you and your loved ones all the while delivering a product that I know you will love and cherish for years to come.
