Hi, I'm Ashley Ann Trobridge, passionate photographer, mother to my two girls Isla and Charlie along with schnauzers, Goose & Harry, and partner to super Dad Willie.

I currently call Methven home and love the Canterbury area. I really enjoy capturing precious moments which people can look back on fondly. Having studied at the Professional Photography Institute, I now specialise in family, maternity and pet photography, but also enjoy all forms of commercial work from business, local government to on-farm and outdoor shoots.

I'm very passionate about the outdoors and have previously had a 10 year career in the agriculture sector, so love nothing better than lacing up the hiking boots or slipping on the red bands when the opportunity arises!

When I don't have my camera or one of my daughters in hand (which isn't often these days!), you'll find me mountain biking, tramping, hunting or walking my canine friends.

Please drop me a line if you'd like to explore some photography opportunities.




“Absolutely in love with our beautiful family photos Ash took to capture our sweet boy hitting 9 months. Ash is super professional, organised and easy-going which made this process a lot less stressful, especially with a young baby involved! We couldn’t be more happy with how they turned out - thanks heaps Ash!”

—Penny, Kieran and baby Eli

“Amazing. It didn't feel like we were posing, loved how natural and real it was. You have blown my mind with how you captured what you did in 5-10mins ...... And Harlow mainly crying. Loved the relaxed vibe, as did Damien. He normally hates getting bis picture taken but your ability to keep it casual was perfect. Didn't hear one complaint. Thanks again Ash, they are super special to us.”

—Samara, Damien & Harlow

“Great, she was relaxed and made us all feel at ease, the results of the photos speak for themselves”

—Rhonda & Reagan

“Ashley - you are very talented! Thank you so much for your time and expertise, you nailed the vision I was after and my sisters and I had lots of fun during the process. Thanks Bianca”

—Bianca & Sisters

“'The photos Ashley has taken for our new website are fantastic. She was great on farm working in and around the cows and gave us excellent instructions to help us feel at ease in front of the camera. Ashley's eye for great lighting and backdrops really impressed me. I would highly recommend Ashley and look forward to working with her again.'”
