The beauty of Ashland as a location for Family Photos

At Stephanie Jenkins Photo, we love documenting the joy of family moments in Ashland, Virginia. There are so many unique locations to choose from for stunning photo sessions!

From tree-lined streets, cozy neighborhoods, and bushy parks – the vibrant city of Ashland is the perfect destination for any family portrait. We’ve even spotted a couple of grand historic homes that make an exquisite backdrop for your session! Whether you choose an urban or rural atmosphere, there is something special about this city.

There are also plenty of activities to do while in town that add a little bit of extra fun before or after your session. Check out the farmers market or explore the trails at North Park – both offer amazing views and candid moments to capture between family members.

Elizabeth Crowe Ream Family Photo Session

Look no further for a photographer - book Stephanie now! She brought out the warmth in our family's photos. And our kids fell under her spell of fun and kindness. She was helpful and communicative prior to our appointment and had just the right mix of incorporating her pro ideas and listening to what we liked and were comfortable with. 5+ STARS!

Emily Jay Family Photo Session

Stephanie took the most beautiful pictures of our family (including four rambunctious children!) and was able to beautifully capture our family's personality. The session completely exceeded my expectations, and was painless on my end. We got the edited photos that same day and I loved one more than the other. Thank you, Stephanie! We will be using your services for years to come!


    Here are a few common questions when scheduling a session for your fam!

    Don't know how to choose your favorite photos? No problem! With our photo packages, you'll get an online gallery with all the digital files, so you can download them all and pick your faves later. Plus, you can purchase photo albums or prints of all the photos if you can't make up your mind!

    We know how to make sure your session is fun and easy-going so you look like a pro in front of the camera. Trust us – we want you to love your pictures so much that you keep coming back to us year after year!

    Most importantly, it's always good to remember that kids will be kids. If they're extra wild that day. Go along with it. I'll be on the ground chasing them around to get the best photos and capturing their personalities along the way. 

    If you're looking for the perfect place to take your family photos, look no further than your own home or a nearby outdoor location. We've found that most families prefer these types of locations, and we're happy to suggest a spot if you're not sure where to go.

    I can also help out with wedding and engagement photos, professional headshots, business branding, and everything in between. Contact us for more details about your needs!
