The "B" Trio | Caleb, Chance & Brielle

These three sure gave me a run for my money! 4-year-old Caleb, 2-year-old Chance and 1-year-old Brielle had me running all over Scandinavian Heritage Park in Minot, ND on a hot July afternoon .. but it was worth it, and so much fun. They are all so sweet, especially that little Brielle with her curls (I am a sucker for a little girl with curly hair!).

Here are just a few of the shots I got from the session with the B Trio!

Little Ting Ting | Adison's 4 months!

I am almost sad ... I cannot believe Adison (AKA Little Ting Ting, a name Adi earned after something like 40 hours of natural childbirth - I think delirium had set in at that point, but the nickname has stuck!) is 4 months. Her momma, Sarah, is one of my best friends and I was lucky enough to do some fun maternity shots, the labor as well as newborn pictures of sweet Adison, and I am so sad this was my last session with her. Unless I can convince Sarah and James to come visit me in Colorado Springs, ha ha!

The Beautiful "B" Family

I love this family! I got to meet them in January when we got together to do Phoebe's Newborn Shoot, and we've grown to be very good friends ever since. Alex and Amy are two of the funniest people, so sweet and kind, Phoebe is very lucky to have them as her mommy and daddy. I am so jazzed, because they have family in Colorado so I will definitely be seeing them again!

Here are a few of the MANY shots we go, it was hard to narrow it down because this family is so photogenic! Ahh!

The D Family - Back Again!

I got to meet the D family last year - and it was seriously one of the funnest sessions I've ever had ... so when Amy called me up and asked me to do their summer pictures - this time with her sister's family included - I totally jumped on the chance and said, "let's dooooooo it!".

As you can see, it just gets more silly!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from their session!

Dear Class of 2012, I am lookin' for YOU!

It's that time of year again ... the temps are starting to cool off, all the stores are gearing up for those back-to-school sales and for the class of 2012 ... It's the beginning of their senior year! Why stick with the standard in-school pictures when you can have a custom, one-of-a-kind experience for your senior and capture their real spirit!?

You can ... and if you book with me, you will.

I am currently looking for six senior spokesmodels for the Colorado Springs area! Three boys and three  girls will be chosen to represent Ashley Durham Photography for the class of 2012. And what does a Senior Spokesmodel get?

Well, for starters, they get their session fees waived - that's right, it's FREE! And that's a $175 value!!**

Senior sessions come with $50 in print credit, a disk of web-formatted images AND one high-resolution image that you can use for your yearbook picture! How awesome is that?

If you're interested in booking a senior session or perhaps becoming one of my Senior Spokesmodels ... shoot me an email at! 

** A deposit of $50 is required for senior spokesmodels. Once the spokesmodel has recruited five seniors to come to me, that $50 turns into print credit!

The ADP Referral Program

Everyone knows that word of mouth is best way to get news around ... be it through actual talking or sharing online. I know that whenever I want to know the latest and greatest, I'll pop online (Facebook, People, EOnline, The Colorado Gazette, etc.) and learn all kinds of new things - including vendors and businesses!

So why am I rambling here? Because I want to introduce the ADP Referral Program.

Whenever I meet with new clients, I always like to ask them how they learned about me and became interested in booking a session with me - did you see my work on Facebook? Did a co-worker tell you about me? Or did you just flat out Google "awesome Colorado Springs family photographer" and my name popped up?

So here's the deal ... When you book a session with me, I like to make sure you have a great time. It's not just an hour or two out of our lives together, you're investing in an experience with me and I want to make sure it's the best experience it can be, and I want you to tell you friends, family, coworkers and random strangers that you came to me and had a GREAT experience.

And when that new client comes my way and says, "so-and-so  referred me" ... guess what? You get rewarded! For every single client you refer to me that books a full session with me (any kind of full session - kids, family, weddings, senior - you name it), you get an additional $10 in print credit good toward any current or future sessions with me. The best part? There is absolutely no limit. You could earn as much print credit as you want!

Pretty awesome, huh?

So ... what are you waiting for? Refer away!

Amy & Eric Are Havin' a Baby! | Maternity

I was so excited to be asked to do Amy & Eric's maternity session. I had done their Christmas card pictures last year and we quickly became friends ... I even got to take the picture that Amy used to announce her pregnancy way back in January (it was just for fun, not an actual shoot). I seriously love these two, they are such a sweet and fun couple and will make excellent parents.

When we did the shoot, Baby Justice didn't have a name ... but now he does - Nicholas! And I loooove it. If Amy has her way, I'll be back in Minot in September to do Nick's birth and newborn pictures and I really hope we can make that happen. I am SO excited for him to make his arrival!

Here are a few from the Justice's maternity session!

Glamorous by Jutone Rene did Amy's hair & makeup for her maternity session. Thank you, Jutone!
