Ashli is an award winning and internationally published photographer whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, Newsweek, Beverly Hills Courier, as well as in the form of travel posters and advertisements including for the Center for Disease Control. Images of Life by Ashli Photography was voted a "Ventura County Star Reader's Choice Favorite" in 2015, 2021 & 2022. She is currently the lead photographer for both Stroll Lake Sherwood Magazine & Dos Vientos Living Magazine.

Ashli comes from a long line of artists - her great-grandfather Oscar Johns was a world renowned glass-blower, her great uncle a fine artist, her mother an art therapist, and her father a graphic artist and photographer. This might explain why she was brought up with a camera in her hands and a darkroom in the kitchen! While attending Beverly Hills H.S. and San Diego S.U. she was a photojournalist for the yearbooks and newspapers. During a semester abroad, her photography placed First in a contest sponsored by the New Zealand Board of Tourism, inspiring her to keep learning, keep traveling and keep pushing the shutter.  She helped launch the Conejo Valley Connection, a monthly family-oriented newspaper; and stayed on as co-editor its first year. 

Giving back to the community is something Ashli feels strongly about. She donates her services to: Cancer Support Community, BumbleBee Foundation as well as I Am Beautiful Project (helping teens who have been bullied); and Safe Passage (which offers a fresh start to victims of domestic abuse). 

Originally from Toronto, Canada, this Southern California photographer is a dedicated wife (of over 20 years) and blessed mother of four children & three four-legged fur balls.

"Photographs are like poetry, telling a beautiful story of the family within, and a wall of family photos is a reflection of the love that binds them together. It is my wish that your home be filled with images that represent the warmth, love, and happiness of your past and present. A photograph is a reminder of where we came from, a reminder that we are cherished and will never be forgotten. The best part of being a portrait photographer? Preserving the emotions, connections and special moments in people’s lives."  -Ashli Meredith
