I try to put a piece of myself in every image. Every role/character/garment I'm placed in, I try to connect with. I especially adore getting to model garments and accessories! It's a fun challenge to give every dress a different personality and highlight the specific features of each distinct piece.


Ashley, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?


I am passionate about so many things! But you want to know the funny part? I would never have seen myself in front of the camera.

I started as a model for a friend of mine that was starting a photography business. She needed a model, and I wanted to help. But when it came time for the shoot, I was a nervous wreck. My hands were shaking, and I didn't know what to do with myself. I walked away from the experience thinking; "That's it. I'm done being afraid of what the world thinks of me." I made quite sure to continue placing myself in that terrifying place -- in front of the camera.

I chased modeling to show other young girls and women that you needn't be perfect to feel beautiful. That what you consider a flaw in yourself, others may find lovely and unique. I wanted to prove to the world that a beautiful heart truly does radiate outwards. Along the way, I have fallen in love with the process of creating a beautiful capture. Modeling and acting have become what I live for.


Who is your inspiration in life, Ashley? How do you stay inspired as a Model?


A number of people inspire me for numerous reasons. Audrey Hepburn is such a classic role model I have always drawn from. She was humble, kind, and glamourous in her way. Not only that, but I love the fact that she made the "little black dress" so iconic.

Harry Houdini is also a fascination of mine. What a master of showmanship! He was so incredibly dedicated to his work on the stage. With his eccentricity, practice, and hard work, it wasn't only his job...but a lifestyle. That is precisely what I want -- to live the lifestyle.


We all make mistakes, Ashley, we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?


I really can't recall a mistake I wish I could take back. Every choice has brought success or a lesson from which I've learned. I'm the first to admit I'm not perfect, and I do make mistakes... But the key to a good mistake is learning from it. I've learned something valuable from every decision and wouldn't change a thing from my past.


Ashley, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?


The key to a beautiful photo is teamwork! Too often, the model gets all the praise when, in reality, we are the canvas and muse of our talented team. I have so much respect for my makeup artists, stylists, designers, photographers, directors, and videographers. No matter how well I do my job, the photo/video/film won't turn out if we don't all work together. My designers have become my family. My photographers have become my dearest friends. The best part of my job is the talented group of individuals I get to meet and create with.


Please tell us, Ashley, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?


Work hard, be passionate about what you do, and never settle for anything less than giving 100%. I adore what I do and have little need to supplement with extracurricular activities. Shooting is as vital as the air I breathe, and it's work and plays at the same time for me.


Ashley, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.


Last year I wrote/directed/starred in a short film about terminal illness. I was able to create the entire shot list, plan the shooting schedule, cast the project, and guide the editing process as a whole. Throughout the whole project, I was able to work with an incredibly talented team that was kind enough to give me full creative control. I was so blessed to not only create with them but also help them see what I saw in my head before it was brought to life. Together we were able to tell a moving story that I can't wait to release to short film festivals across the nation!


Ashley, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.


Oh, what to choose...? Shooting on the beaches of Jamaica? Posing in Times Square for 8 cameras at a time? The numerous local magazine covers? I really can't choose. I think my proudest accomplishment has yet to be accomplished.


Ashley, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?


I think my favorite creative experience was arranging my tarantula shoot. I had this incredible vision of elegant dresses and high fashion posing with the deadly excitement of a giant spider as an accessory. Tarantulas can't be de-fanged, you know... I still remember when they placed the spider on my head... The room was dead silent. I shook a little bit, reminded myself to breathe, looked at the photographer, and said; "Okay, I'm ready." She began clicking away.

By the end of the shoot, I became enthralled with my eight-legged co-star. She moved so gracefully up close. It proved to me that the things we are most afraid of are often nothing to be feared at all. During the last few frames, she had even begun to spin a web across my hands. It was quite beautiful to watch up close.


What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?


It takes at least 8 no's before you receive 1 yes. Don't try to be like anyone else. Find the unique qualities you have and the features you can highlight. You are a designer original and should never try to become an imitation.

Respect your photographers for what they do. Be on time. I realize there is lots of work that goes into a perfect shot. Know you will have to get wet, pose in the cold/heat, wake before the crack of dawn, stay late, wear uncomfortable shoes, look beautiful even when you are hurting or sick, and be expected to do things you may not have done before. Be excited and ready for the challenge!
