I'm Ashleigh, owner & operator of Exist Images here in the Illawarra. I am a Mother to three amazing little dudes who have enriched my life beyond belief. I never really FELT true love and connection until I met them. The birth of my first baby at the age of 19 left me elated and on top of the world. I became addicted to that feeling. That combined with my absolute love of lifestyle/documentary photography has led me to Exist Images.
I grew up in Wollongong on the NSW south coast. I always had a camera in my hand growing up and have so many memories attached to each of those photos. We moved to Brisbane for the year of 2015 where I had a direction change of my business and decided to follow my passion and shoot what I love. I kicked off Exist Images with its focus on capturing birth as well as the real life events and milestones as they happen. No silly, awkward and unnatural posing.
Here at Exist, I will treat you exactly how I would like to be treated and that's with professionalism and comfort. I capture life as it unfolds. I offer in home, in hospital or on location sessions and offer professional print and digital products that you will treasure forever.
