The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins

After attending the 2018 Reset Conference I decided to take a hard look into AshLee Wethington Photography as a business here in Southern Illinois, I have decided the time to blog is now! Let the Journey Begin!

So what better topic to kick off my blogging journey than Reset?

So what is Reset? It is a photography conference that allows photography business owners to come together to learn, grow and Reset their spirit, mind, and business! Everyone is a peer…

Community over competition…


Some really cool props and gear!!!

It was a truly amazing experience and I am so excited for next year! I already have my ticket 🙂

Shortly after this conference I started working on my business instead of just in my business. Blogging, websites, tax prep, marketing… the whole works. As I am going back though old posts to make things look and work better I thought I would give an update on my journey. In 2019 I attended the Reset conference and made a ton of changes again. I was able to walk away from my full time job as a nurse in administration in Sept 2019 and live my dream of being a full time photographer in Southern Illinois. 

I can now provide for my family as well as teach and mentor others how to do the same. This journey isn’t for the faint at heart. It takes a lot of blood sweat and tears into doing this- but I am truly happy! I hope to one day teach what I know on a much larger scale and reach more people! Did you know that I mentor other newborn photographers? Interested in traveling to me or me traveling to your studio? Let’s chat!

If I can do it so can you!

AshLee Wethington Photography

Hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by to learn more about me! I am a Registered Nurse that has found a great love for photography! I enjoy photographing newborns, children, and families. My goal is to capture authentic smiles, real life moments, and the tiny details that bring your mind racing back to that exact moment 10, 20, 30 years from now. I also have 2 children, MadaLynn and Beckett and a wonderful husband John. In 2017 I completed my bachelors in nursing... while working as a nurse and a photographer. I love to laugh and I have a silly sense of humor!
