Ashley Soeder is a lifestyle photographer from Saskatchewan, Canada.
Photography found her shortly aft the birth of her children. Sitting on the floor, watching them build with blocks, or play with their favorite toy, Ashley began to notice how, when the light shone through the window and touched them, it created an almost magical moment. Ashley became aware of the light and soon found herself framing photographs in her mind wherever she went.
Ashley picked up her first DSLR in 2014 and has been chasing the light and soaking up every bit of knowledge ever since. Finding her voice through photography has been such a blessing for Ashley.
When she does not have her camera in hand, she can be found planning their next renovation project with her husband Scott. Together they have 3 amazing children who inspire them and keep them on their toes.
Life is busy, loud and fun, although if Ashley finds a rare quiet hour in her day, you might find her sipping a hot tea on their porch swing will reading a book.

Ceri is a British photographer, hobbyiest musician, an all-around crafty-artsy Pinterest Mum, who lived in Scottsdale, Arizona, with a small stay in Massachettes, before moving back to the UK.
Moving to the USA in 2014 and finding amazing Arizona light, Ceri began exploring her photographic and creative boundaries.
She was given my first camera when she was 8 and used the entire first roll of film taking pictures of ducks, which turned out to be nothing more than small indistinguishable blobs in the middle of the river. You could say that she haven’t changed much: Ceri loves nothing more than to take herself off on her own, somewhere quiet, to get lost in her own photographic creative world… and she probably still take too many pictures (thank goodness for the digital age) but has moved on a bit from the indistinguishable blobs!
Ceri loves freelensing, in-camera double exposures, and experimenting, but above all she loves to capture genuine emotion and beauty in the everyday.

Kristina is a very unapologetic mom with a camera. She loves capturing the joys, chaos and humor as she fumbles through motherhood.
When she started shooting back in 2012, Kristina had only a basic understanding of photography, but she knew that she wanted to document as many moments with her new baby as possible.
As the years progressed, that desire to preserve the unscripted moments only intensified. Life has a way of happening too quickly, and the kids just grow so damned fast. So since Kristina cannot make them stop growing, she shoots them instead.
