ABOUT

Hi! I'm Ashley - a professional photographer, wife, mom of boys, camera strap designer, Monat Market Partner and a passionate community volunteer. I've been in the photography business for 10 long years and this year I decided to change things up a bit and take a new stride in the direction of sharing more of my everyday life. A Photo by Ashley | Roots is a place that was created where I can easily share and interact with others. You'll learn I'm very giving, I'm opinionated, I'm an introvert believe it or not. I suck at writing (I write like I talk) so, if you're here to correct my grammar, you may want to head to another blog. I'm all in and sometimes I'm all over the place, I love hard, I'm pretty laid back, very sarcastic, coffee addict, creative, free spirited, open-minded and I just want to live and experience what I can, where I'm at, with what I have. We live in what I call a big small town in North Carolina, at the end of a cul-de-sac - within city limits. This is where #culdesacfarmstead developed. Although we live on a small piece of property I have learned over the years that I CAN grow, produce and share my experiences with others. I can now share my simple lifestyle in ways that we all can relate to, from the roots of our ancestors. Farm to table, farmstead, homesteading, backyard chickens, homegrown, homemade, handmade, photography, natural products, or simply WHATEVER works for ME -- etc etc. You see, it may be a trend to some, but honestly this is how everyone once lived, it's nothing new. This is "my way" of sharing with you my roots along with my other adventures in my every day life...
