Everyday Photo Challenge

A new style of photography I'm seeing popping up, is everyday or "lifestyle" photography. It is a style where candid photos are the goal, that wont require perfect lighting, or perfect poses. So this week we worked on our everyday photo challenge, the challenge was to take a photo of everyday…

Self Portrait Challenge

We live in a world full of selfies, selfie sticks, and camera phones. I feel it's so important to leave room for artistic thought-out photographs, so this week I give you...the self portrait challenge. I am no stranger to the lovely world of Instagram, (which you can follow me on here) and…

Lehman Caves

Shortly before we left Vegas, Dan and I ventured out to Great Basin National Park. Inside the park there is Lehman Caves National Monument. We signed up for a tour of the cave system, and while we waited we walked through a small hiking trail around the visitors center. The…

Colorado Irish Festival

This past weekend Dan and I ventured to Littleton, Colorado. Our quest was the Colorado Irish Festival. Since we are the O'Sullivans we figured we owed it to our family to join in the festivities. We arrived early at Clement park to make sure we got some decent parking and…

Top 5 Photo Apps

We all love taking pictures, that's nothing new. Finding new photo editing or photo sharing apps, has become a slight obsession. I have bitterly deleted bad photo apps, and gotten underwhelmed with several apps that had all I wanted but the execution was just bad... so so bad. All of…

HawkQuest 2015

  When my husband and I moved here (Denver, CO) I was slightly concerned that I would have a hard time making friends in a new city. My awesome hubby suggested a website called Meetup.com. I’m always skeptical with anything regarding meeting people from the internet. The site lets you…

Butterflies Galore

The Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster, Colorado has some of the most gorgeous butterflies I have ever seen. Another meetup group event. We actually got to go in an hour before the pavilion opened to the public, which was nice since we would need our tripods to get good shots.  What…

Little Red Riding Hood

This post is about, wait for it....WOLVES! Yep, yours truly got to photograph and pet and be licked by wolves! I have been looking forward to writing this post for some time. The Rocky Mountain Wildlife Foundation is one of the most unbelievable experiences I have ever had. The RMWF…

Up, Up, and Away

On an early, glorious, Saturday morning. Dan and I had made a trip to Erie, Colorado. There was a hot air balloon festival at Colorado National Golf Club. Erie is about 30 minutes from Denver, not bad drive in the morning for sure. We arrived at the golf club at…

Zoo Fun!

My ultimate favorite subject when photographing is animals. They have a natural, peaceful beauty, that my camera longs for. I had been talking about going to visit the Denver Zoo for a few months after I moved to Colorado last year (I'm from Vegas). One weekend my husband and I…

Denver Botanic Gardens

One of the very first places my husband and I had visited in Colorado was the Denver Botanic Gardens. I adore flowers and plants, although I'm still trying to cultivate my green thumb here. I'll get it eventually. If you have never been to the Gardens, I would highly recommend…

Hi There!

My name is Ashley Grey, I have been dabbling in photography for several years now. I started in high school with film photography, and have been teaching myself slowly how to get better at digital photography. There is no better creative outlet for me, I absolutely love the calm and…
