The one behind ASHxBRAND...

Ashley Young is a Chicago Photographer and Graphic Designer. Since a child, Ashley grew up loving art and everything about it which allowed her to explore the creative arts; involving herself in painting and cartoon sketching.

Later on, receiving her Bachelors Degree from the University of Illinois - Chicago in Graphic Design allowed Ashley to gain great connections and perspective that tremendously influenced her creativity. Even though being degreed in Design, the love for photography came from only one class taken during her 5 years. After that, it was game on! Asking family, friends and even strangers in that time to pose as models helped build skills that stay with her even now with clients! Photoshoots can truly make anyone feel GOOD about themselves and that’s another reason why Ashley loves it!

Being able to create for others is such a blessing and is something that Ashley believes she’s called to do!
