Meet the Photographer - Family, child, & newborn portraits, Sports portraits, Weddings, Engagements, Sporting events, & Product and Commercial Photography.
Hi! Welcome to my website! I'm Ashley Dover, a full-time photographer, wife, and mother, and I reside in Shelby, NC. I love cool sunny days, french vanilla cappuccino, and epic suspense novels. I could definitely live without clutter, washing dishes, and mushrooms.
I have one of the best jobs in the world; I'm a photographer. I prefer to not limit myself to just one area of photography, because there is so much to learn and love about all of it, but I'll admit I'm not the best at Landscape photography. I find joy in being a part of capturing a family's memories and milestones. Capturing family, child, and newborn portraits, sports portraits, sporting events, engagement photos, weddings, and all other manner of important family events and occasions are what I love most about being a photographer. I get invited into people's lives to share special moments, and for a career, it doesn't get any better than that.
I also enjoy working in my studio on commercial and product photo shoots. Working with different subjects and finding how to best portray it to consumers is a challenge I find thrilling. Collaborating with other artists as part of a team to create images that speak out and speak up for their manufacturers is another awesome aspect of being a photographer.
For local and small businesses that have a product they'd like advertised, I offer a special package for their advertising needs that includes Product images for advertising, Catalog images, and Environmental portraits of the business owner. With this package you'll have everything you need to jump start your advertising campaign.
I received my Associates Degree in Digital Photography, and through that journey I've collected a strong knowledge base on photographing many different things, people most of all. My background and experience includes spec photo shoots for editorial projects as part of my commercial and product photography.
My husband Danny and our two kids are my greatest source of inspiration. They keep my imagination bright and churning, and I bring that well of creativity to my work.
I can be reached by phone, email, and on social media, so give me a call, shoot me a text or email. I'd love to talk to you about your photographic needs.
I look forward to hearing from you!
