Ashley Takes on Europe 2012: ROME

STOP #5: Rome, Italy Germany had been wonderful, Megan was now my travel partner in crime and though she had already been to Rome once before, her love of art and history had me excited for Rome. The phrase “You can’t do Rome in a day” was definitely true. Can I just add we thought… Continue Reading

CrossFit “The Cult” (that others seem to hate on)

This past weekend I competed in my first CrossFit competition, which is why I felt compelled to write this blog on CrossFit and my spin on it….(ok and to vent a little). CrossFit is one of the fastest growing ¬†fitness movements in the Nation. More people are now becoming aware of what CrossFit is all… Continue Reading

Ashley Takes on Europe: MUNICH

STOP #4: Munich I took a bus, yes a bus (by now I felt like I was in the movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles) from Prague bright and early to Munich. I was told to take the early one because the later one is filled with partiers headed to Oktoberfest. The drive and country side… Continue Reading

My First Wedding Shoot: Caswell House, Austin Tx

Pease Place: A Green Condo Project close to DT, Austin Tx

Ashley Takes on Europe 2012: PRAGUE

STOP #3: PRAGUE So if you just finished up reading about Berlin you learned I left around 4 and arrived in Prague pretty late. You also learned that feelings of strep were creeping upon me and I was getting sick. I have never slept so hard (well, on a train) in my life. Also haven’t… Continue Reading

Ashley Takes on Europe 2012: BERLIN

STOP #2: Berlin A little joke to get started off on Germany… I left Amsterdam by train pretty early in the morning and off to Germany I went! The train was nice actually, I am pretty sure it promised me wifi, but that definitely was not the case, so luckily I had downloaded a lot… Continue Reading

Well, many of you have asked how my trip was, I covered a lot of ground, was gone for three weeks and frankly it felt good to get back in the swing of things. Some of you thought I’d never return, but alas, here I am and here are my tails from Europe, what I… Continue Reading

Great Places to take photos Around Austin, Tx

Iconic Austin shots and then some… Recently I have developed quite an interest in portrait photography. I wanted to share some couple photos I have taken around Austin (all engagement photos). Still learning, I have done these for free and taken an interest in photoshop touch-ups as well. So forgive my amateur-ness, but hope this… Continue Reading

Definitely not my first trip (nor my last) to Northern California. The… Continue Reading
