Ashley Fink | One-on-One Mentoring

For Photographers


Yesterday I had the privilege of hosting the beautiful Ashley of Ashley Fink Photography for a one-on-one mentoring session! I know I’ve said this before…but I just LOVE one-on-ones!! They are SO much fun and I can’t imagine a better way to spend an afternoon than sharing snacks + talking all things photography! Ashley is in the beginning stages of kick-starting her business, and let me tell you, she is SO talented!! I cannot wait to see where her business takes her!

Ashley wanted to focus on improving her workflow + editing as well as mastering posing + lighting (some of my favorite things to teach!!) So, we spent a couple of hours sharing popcorn + gummy bears while doing a full workflow walk-through and Q+A, then we headed out for the shooting portion to work on posing and lighting! Madison + Zander were our models for the day and they did such an AMAZING job working it in the heat!! Props to them both (and they’re just ADORABLE!)

Ashley, you are going to do some INCREDIBLE things! It was such an honor to have you and I cannot wait to see where your business goes from here! XOXO

Enjoy some of Ashley’s head shots from her mentoring session as well as some favorites from our shoot!


GORGEOUS, Ashley!!!


Too stinkin’ cute!!!
