... A collection of moments, weaved together, writing the chapters of your lives. In every family and children's photography session, our focus is the connection, the heart & soul, of those in front of our lens. We know, years from now, you won't just want to remember what this moment looked like, you'll want to remember what it felt like. These are your stories, and we are honored to be your storyteller. Whether you're writing the chapter of footie pajamas & bedtime stories, or the pages are quickly turning towards high school graduation, these illustrations of their childhood will be cherished long after those chapters close forever.
Dana Ashlyn works with families throughout the greater Raleigh area, and can also be commissioned for beach photography sessions on Topsail Island as well as other North Carolina beaches.
"I believe portraits of our loved ones make the most beautiful art for the walls of our homes. I believe, when given the chance, little hands will frequently turn the pages of albums of family photographs. I believe in black and white gallery walls that little ones tiptoe past at bedtime, and painted portraits over the mantel that quietly whisper "you belong here". I believe that portrait art steadfastly communicates they are deeply loved and cherished.
I believe your portraits have far greater value than pixels on a screen, or digital clutter on a server. I believe that portrait art should live on for generations. And I promise to help guide you towards a photographic legacy that will live on for your children and their children."
