Why do I always find myself here. Two thoughts occurred to me today while editing these photos. First, I always forget how hard I need to work to PLAN for great images and second that I most certainly forget how great it feels.


I’ve had some great things going on. Kids and weddings, summer storms and Y runs. My blog has taken a serious back seat to Instagram (@ashleythalmanphoto) where I post little glimpses into my work. The story is limited there and I need to remedy that with more posting here. Until that near-future time here are a few photos pulled from my favorite file.

The Family Flavor

For the last few years my talented kitchen-wiz friend Whitney Ingram has been working in collaboration with another amazing cook, perfect stylist and phenomenal photographer, Sheena Jibson. Their project? A cookbook. A wonderful, fully photographed cookbook filled to the brim with the most amazing recipes. Whitney asked me to look through it before it went to the publisher and the thought kept rising- this is just what every home needs.

There work together is magical. Our home was the scene for their cover shoot which was a blast to watch and support. I am so happy to have our beautiful table featured on the cover. Clayton Thompson of Ivory Bill made such incredible heirloom table for our family and it was a perfect backdrop to Whitney and Sheena’s work. Below are a few film shots I took while Sheena and Whitney zoomed around our house!
