Hi there! My name is Ashley Catto, I married my high school sweetheart, Kyle, who works full time for CalFire. We have two beautiful children, Kinslee and Maverick, of which I have the honor of staying home with full time (unless I’m busy documenting a birth)! I began my photography business, Ashley Catto Photography in 2017. While pursuing various avenues of photography, Engagement, Weddings, Family, or Lifestyle photoshoots, Birth Photography remains my main focus. Starting fall 2019, I will be adding birth and bereavement doula service packages to my photography as I will be credentialed through Stillbirthday Academy.
I am so passionate about my job, and feel so honored to be the one that is trusted to capture what will become one of your most life changing days. Birth is like a time warp, on one hand it seems never ending, like all of pregnancy builds up to this event, but there is somehow no end in sight, at the same, the entire journey to welcoming your child and those first moments with a new life are fleeting. Never to be experienced again. It is my job to protect and give back those moments and memories though photography. Each birth is unique, as only two souls meeting for the first time can be. But what I’ve learned from having my own two babies, Kinslee and Maverick, is that, those memories that I swore I could never forget, quickly became a blur. This is why I'm passionate about celebrating and documenting each birth I attend. It's my joy and honor to work in multiple counties serving at birth centers, home births and hospitals, giving growing families documented memories they can look back on and cherish for a lifetime.
