… it’s okay mama

Let’s be real, being a mom is hard. 

Your life is not your own, well it is, but it’s become so much more outward focus than inward. I constantly ask myself “am I being kind, patient, loving in my responses as their mama?”.

Often when I stop amidst the chaos I can hear their childhood ticking away in the background, barely audible, I feel the sense of time moving.

This feeling is what made me a photographer, how I look at the everyday with wonder. I try to look through new eyes on how I could create magic through the imagination of my children and future clients.

Whether it’s playing with your kids on the floor or saying goodbye to a season of their life graduating into adulthood. I want to photograph the in between, just as well as the big moments for you.

You deserve to be remembered throughout their lifetime in authentic candid photographs. We don’t take very many things with us through our lives, but pictures… they are passed on for generations.

As a photographer, I’m mindful of the fleeting moments I might otherwise miss, yet grateful for those I’ve captured.

Ashley Feldes | Chilliwack Portrait Photography

Today was my day off, and after a busy semester and a handful of finals finished I spent my first day off exploring Chilliwack and its surrounding areas for future photography locations.  

As I ventured around Mill Street I saw Ashley Feldes through the window of the Harvest Cafe and she smiled. This is something new for me but I entered the Cafe and asked her if she would like to have a free portrait session. Now keep in mind, I have never met Ashley before but this was the perfect way to meet a new person and bless someone with a session.

I hope to do more pop up sessions in the future, there is something about meeting new people and blessing them with photos!
