Greetings! So, you know how I said in my last blog post I’d be in Oregon through the fall? That was in reference to last fall! I’m still here, a whole year later, with no plans of leaving anytime soon. Life with my partner, Chris, and our two dogs, Miles and Mooch, is pretty fantastic! I took a break from photography this last year. I had no interest in jumping into a new community and advertising photo services. It wasn’t the right time. In pursuit of selling more art however, I built a new website – ashleystevick.com – just for my fine art photography. I bought a fancy printer and started producing notecards and art prints which I sell in a few shops around town and at John Day farmers market. At this point, I’m also happy to start scheduling family photo sessions, weddings and more! This engagement shoot with Erin and Rob was excellent! I like for even my posed work to have a candid, artistic feel. If you’re into getting outside and want natural, fun photos, then I’m definitely up for making your wedding, family, senior, or engagement shoot a light-hearted and memorable experience.
I’m incredibly honored and grateful that Montana Quarterly magazine chose my image for the cover of their winter edition! I donated a metal print with the same image to Reach’s Have a Heart Art Auction on February 6th. Get your ticket here!
“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.” — Helena Bonham Carter
Here’s a sampling of my art; many from Montana and a few from my adventures in Georgia. Check out my art gallery for more landscapes and abstract nature shots.
My trip back to Bozeman was so lovely! An art show, a wedding and a late afternoon shoot with these two little rascals! Here’s a few of my favorites.
