Ashley Montoya is my favorite San Diego photographer. She recently was kind enough to allow me into her studio and took these great photos while I was there.
To my eyes, Ashley's work always exhibits a sincerity, individuality, edge, and subtle sense of humor. I see all those elements in these photos of me, and I can tell that this work was done by a friend - someone who sees who I am, and is able to capture and express that through photographs.
Whether it was the professional head shot, the impromptu shot between outfits, or the funny and spontaneous picture with the vintage dress that couldn't fit over my pumpkin head, Ashley really nailed it with this series!
