Come by and say “hello” and enter to win a custom portrait session.

We had an amazing time participating in this year’s Birth and Baby Fair in the San Luis Obispo Mission Plaza this past Saturday. We were able to meet a number of new and expectant mothers, as well as many birth and baby related vendors in our community. We always enjoy seeing familiar faces too. A number of past newborn clients came by to say hello and it is great to see their tiny newborns have grown into toddlers.

We had a drawing for a free portrait session at our booth and we are very excited to announce that the winner is: Pamela Hood

Pamela you have won an outdoor portrait session and $100 print credit with Kiwi Ashby Photography. I will be contacting you today to schedule your session.



I had a wonderful time photographing my friend Kelsey’s five day old baby last week. Kelsey did a home birth and had an amazing experience. Her little guy came in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces and 20.5 inches long. They are still trying to decide on his name so for now he is Baby Eastburn.

Kelsey’s midwife, Dr. Tiffany Dietrich, is opening the first birth center on the central coast, Santa Lucia Birth Center. They had their first birth early this morning. You can following the progress of the center on their facebook page. I’m so thrilled that I will be able to donate some of my artwork for display. The birth center will be a wonderful addition to our natural birthing community.
