Ashanti Johnstone has been doing photography for 2 years now as a hobby. She has been professionally charging people since January 2018 as she completed her Professional Diploma in Photography, Professional Diploma in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Ashanti specialises in Family photography. She has a young family of her own and therefore is patient and understanding when photographing families. Ashanti has a unique way of being, her clients feel comfortable and relaxed.
Picture that special expression, the laugh, the smile, the irresistible magic of the moment and photograph it forever. Capturing the very beginning of life before its first breath, the wonder of a new baby welcomed with love or the whole family as it grows, to share with our families and the world, is very special. Having experienced all these stages myself and know the joy. My love for people and capturing special moments have nudged me into this profession to help other people hold on to their special memories.
I have done birthdays, cake smashes, maternity and families. The feedback I have received is that I make my clients feel comfortable and relaxed. To make people feel special is I listen to what they want and try relate to them. For example, if I need to get a Toddler to smile I will sing a song from the wiggles. I respect parents if I am offering treats ect and I make the shoot about them.
No awards.... YET
I was a Business Development Manager for 6 years prior to taking the leap into starting my own photography business AND words cant describe how happy I am.
