Hi there! I am Ashleigh Wells and I’m a photographer by day, superhero by night. I live in Port Moody with my husband and our 2 amazing daughters, Ella and Lennon. We also have 2 great dogs named Roxie and Penny, 2 guinea pigs named Oprah and Honey and a hamster called Gus-Gus. I like watching Coronation St., yoga, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
I have been photographing pets and families for the last 6 years since starting my first business in 2008 (Ashleigh Wells Photography) and am excited to expand, adding a pet photography specific brand with Sit Stay Studio. I have my Master Portrait Photographer and Certified Professional Photographer designations and have also been nationally accredited in Canine and Animal Portraiture. I have volunteered as the chair for our Lower Mainland Branch of Professional Photographers of Canada and I have had the honour of winning awards for my work through PPOC and other organizations.
I work from my home studio, as well as on location with pets. I have over 15 years experience working with animals starting as a volunteer at the SPCA and later working part time at a veterinarian’s office and a pet supply store while finishing my university degree. Due to these years of experience I am confident in my ability to work with your pets in a safe, comfortable, professional and FUN environment. As a pet owner, I know the special place in our hearts these little fur babies hold and the importance of capturing who they are while they are with us. Their time with us always seems too short and I hope to capture the unique personalities these little furry loves hold so that the images I take of them can be treasured forever by their families.
