Hello Fall 2021!

I cant begin to explain what a wild ride the last 1.5 years have been! With covid, family issues and a major surgery I’ve had to take quite some time off the during that time! However, even through all that, all of you have been so understanding and patient and I cant thank you enough!!

Now that surgery is behind me and I’m on the road to recovery I am happy to say I can start taking on studio sessions again for sitters, cake smashes ect… I am not cleared yet to do newborns or 3 month sessions as its still a lot of bending/twisting/ carrying around your precious little! I do plan on being back full time for every type of session by January! So if you’re expecting in late December-April or if you’re wanting to book a spring family session if I missed you this fall now, is the time to book!

I look forward to seeing all your smiling faces again!!



FAll 2020!

Hey ladies and Gents! I want to thank you all who have continued to support my business during this crazy hectic time! 2020 has been a roller coaster of a ride for everyone, myself included! I’m happy to see that this hasn’t put a damper on being able to provide you all with happy memories of this year!

My fall sessions are all booked up for the rest of the year and I am now booking winter and spring sessions! A little advice for getting your fall sessions secured: I typically start booking my fall sessions around April/May! Seems early but if you love those fall colors and the cooler photo shoot weather that is the time frame you will want to email me next year to make sure you secure your spot!

Christmas minis are live and I do have a couple more spots open on each day if you are interested!

I hope you all are enjoying this cool weather as much as I am and I look forward to seeing you at your next session!

Happy fall!!

Hello friends – family – clients!

I hope everyone is enjoying this fall weather as much as I am!! I don’t know about you, but there is nothing better than Halloween month!!

So since the last time I updated this (I’m awful at it I know!) I have had my daughter, Peach is her nickname, and she is almost 1!!

I also had ACL surgery in July and am on the mend, hoping to be fully recovered this winter!  However, I am back and taking photos again indoors and out!

For the rest of 2018 I will be using the current price guide listed on my site. In 2019 there will be some changes to my Cake Smash pricing. IF you have a child that is turning 1 in 2019 and want to prepay for your session before the pricing goes up I will allow that up until Dec 31st 2018!

I will also be adding 2 new newborn session options in addition to the regular session so be on the look out for that!

Since my knee is still not completely healed I will not be offering Christmas minis this year, but they and a few other surprise mini sessions will be back in full swing in 2019! If you are interested in a Christmas shoot for your littles I will be happy to get you in the books for your own full session!

I hope you all have a great fall season!!

xx Ashley

Welcome 2017 Clients!!

Hello! Thank you for the continued support throughout the last 3 years!! I’d first like to say that if you are viewing my website from your phone you may have to turn it sideways to click the menu tab and select the different pages!

This year is a year of changes!

First change- I am now offering 10% off new session fees to all existing clients all the time!!!!

Second change- I am no longer offering wedding services. I love the idea of wedding photography but its just not my calling! I am blessed to have captured some beautiful weddings this past year!

Third change- Is a change in my family! I am expecting a new little human later this year which means my fall sessions will be very limited! Booking in advance is a must this year as I will be cutting my work flow in half.

I hope you all will have a happy and amazing 2017!!

What a year!!!

I am beyond thankful and surprised and the growth of my business so far this year!! Its hard to imagine that just over a year ago I started this journey of taking photos for others.  Since then 99% of everything I’ve learned has been completely self taught and seeing my progress for that reason alone is amazing! I will officially be taking my first newborn photography workshop this coming weekend in Chicago Illinois and I cant freaking wait!!

I LOVE taking photos of families and watching everyone grow! However Newborn photography is where my heart is!  Maybe because it helps keep my baby fever at bay… or maybe because who wouldn’t want to spend their time cuddling all those adorable squishy babies!?  I cant wait to take my photography to the next level and bring back all my new knowledge!

Please if you haven’t already “like” my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ashleyknutsonphotography) I am 80 likes away from 1k!! Once I hit that mark I will be giving out a prize for one lucky Liker!!

Thank you again for all your continued support and faith in letting me capture memories for you and your loved ones!!



Welcome to my website!

I am the owner and sole photographer for Ashley Knutson Photography!  I am located in the Quad Cities. I was born and raised here and proud to call it home!

My love for photography has been around since high school as I was on our Yearbook committee, but my biggest inspiration came after the birth of my son!  I specialize in natural light photography of infants, children, families and more! I do have the accommodations for studio work however when the winter comes!

It is my goal to provide you and your loved ones with captured moments that you will hang on your walls and be able to cherish for a lifetime. There is not greater feeling then seeing the smile of a client after viewing their images!
