Welcome Friends & Family

Hello and welcome to the registry page of Xiomy!

I am so happy that you are considering contributing to the photography of the newest addition to Xiomy & Ben’s beautiful family.

I’d like to start off by introducing myself and telling why I fell in love with birth and motherhood photography!

About Me

My name is Ashlie Moon! I have been married for almost 4 years and have two small children. Ruby turned three in February and Walley turned one in February as well.

Before I had my daughter, I dreamt of my birth. Everyday I read birth stories, researched and longed for the day I’d meet her.

My birth experience was amazing and it was shortly after her birth that I discovered birth and motherhood photography. I had done photography as a hobby for the previous 10 years, but nothing serious.

I started learning everything I could about the world of birth and motherhood photography as I spent my 1st year adjusting to being a new mom. Riding those highs and lows helping push me more and more in the direction of this type of photography. In March of 2016 I had the pleasure of being a part of another mother’s birth. I knew then that this is where I wanted to be.

To capture those raw and beautiful emotions. To show the mother how strong and capable she is. To show the dad how amazing he was supporting the mom. Helping the families remember small details that would otherwise be overlooked. And most importantly, freezing those first baby wrinkles that so quickly change. It is such an honor to be allowed in such a vulnerable moment of a family welcoming their newest little one. I love what I do with every ounce of my being.

Motherhood is so beautiful. Every aspect. From the growing belly to meeting the little one that has been a part of you for 9+ months. It can be so overwhelming, so mesmerizing. I want to help mothers remember these days and be able to share these moments with their children when they are older.

That is why I do what I do. This is why I had chosen to focus on birth and motherhood.

So now that you know a little bit about me and why I specialize in birth and motherhood I would love to welcome you to take a glance at my galleries. I recently started offering film as well so I am adding a quick link to both.

I also encourage you to please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I would love to chat and help you decide if purchasing a gift certificate for Xiomy is the right choice for you.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me! I hope to be able to capture these special moments for Xiomy!!
