my babies:
& Gavin

Hi there! My name is Katlyn, affectionately known as “Miss Kate” to my youngest clients, and I am the owner and lead photographer of Katlyn Ashley Photography. I am a mom to three boys, Target shopper extraordinaire, coffee enthusiast, and Joanna Gaines wannabe (who are we kidding?)

I was introduced to photography as a senior in high school where I studied film. It was love at first sight! I ventured into digital photography in 2005 as a sophomore in college and my work today emulates the look of film which I fell in love with so many years ago.

I began my career in weddings as I loved capturing moments of love, life and happiness play out right in front of me. I also LOVE people. I am drawn towards humans in a sincere way and truly love making connections with everyone I have the pleasure of meeting. I have since moved my focus of KAP toward newborns and family as my own family has grown and my time has become quite limited.

Besides photography, I studied graphic design in college which was originally something I just did for fun. I took the things I loved and turned them into a career. Nothing excites me more than taking a bland digital image and putting my spin on it to transform it into a lifelong memory you will hang on your wall and look at for years to come!

I currently shoot on-location and in my Weare, NH studio. I am blessed to do what I love every day and I'd be overjoyed to be your photographer! Thank you for visiting!
