Erin Ashford  Redwood City studio with a documentary approach


I’m always amazed at how much we have in common with each other. I remember people by what they notice. Vernon noticed how there was only 1 Christmas song on Miles Davis’s Blue Christmas album.
In the studio I have vinyl soundscapes, 2 lighting setups, a session that lasts 2 sides and all the variations in between. So grateful for the stories and people that have visited the space. #milesdavis #studiosession #makeportraits #same #touchlight

I couldn’t be more stoked for my beautiful friend and her hubby as they brought a life into this world yesterday. So glad I got a chance to capture them before she was born. Congrats lovers!

Stop and still #quietthechaos

My documentary & portrait work with local survivors and advocates were represented at the Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition EOY family celebration. I’m beyond grateful for what I’ve learned and to be included.

It’s a time to reflect and honor the folks who help bring awareness to the complexity and intricacies of this local Bay Area criminal activity. Thank you to all the advocates and survivors who continue to stand up and help others stay alive and move through these horrors.
Thank you, Betty Ann and Brian, for including me. I feel like a more responsible community member because of what I have learned from everyone involved. #BAATC #communityfirst #antitrafficking #educateyourself #engage #beinformed #documentaryphotographer

Road trips are in my fabric as a native Californian. Pulling off anywhere will surely give you perspective into that one spot. It’s uncertain what I’ll see but it forces me to embrace and welcome the unknown. The landscape has much to teach me about people and what was there before. These photographs are observations of the landscape along the 126 through Santa Paula, CA. #citruscapitoloftheworld

This land was made for you and me.
This was the site of some of the oldest known human settlements in the new world, the last "native" population of which was the Chumash. The Spanish Portolà expedition, first European land explorers of California, traveled along its coast in 1769. It became part of the extensive Spanish land grant known as Rancho Nuestra Señora del Refugio, operated by the family of José Francisco Ortega from 1794.

Riding into Friday like.... I was captivated by this bicyclist in Montreal. Before I lifted my lens, I was lost in his seemingly pure contentment. #thatsmile #happyfriday Whatever you’re going through in life, I wish you a relaxed heart if only for a moment this weekend. #selfcare #musicislife

In my spiritual autobiography group last night we wrote about celestial events. I wrote about my solar eclipse date with the most romantic couple ever!
Read here:
The day of the solar eclipse I setup a viewing date with 2 residents from Docktown, George and Virginia. I heard from other residents they were private people so I was lucky to receive an invite. I also heard how in love with each other they were. When I arrived at their berth, I heard a voice say “Hey, Erin,” and that was George inviting me up on the rooftop of their 2 story floating home.
Virginia had her Panasonic radio in hand. We talked for a long while about how they built their home to last. “Its happening, its happening,” she said. “I’m going to look at the ducks and see if they notice.” A long pause without words together we watched the eclipse, the boats adjusting from the tides, the overcast light, the quiet saxophone sounds from KCSM with familiar radio crackle faintly woven into the creek breeze while we waited to hear the eclipse broadcast.
George said, “We could dance?” “Hey, wanna dance!” Virginia responded.
“Yay, let’s dance under the eclipse,” said George.
And Virginia said “let’s dance the eclipse in.” I had my Canon F1 ready with Portra 400VC and captured a few precious moments as they danced and laughed in each other’s arms. I found myself swaying too. The music continued and Virginia sang, “the day I found you, seems like old times,” then George joined at a lower register, “staying up for hours, making dreams come true, doing the things we used to do.” They exhaled with laughter and the water swelled with their love. I was balling at this point. The end.

A family that rides together...... #loveisachoice

Thinking about my grandma so much lately especially with all the craziness happening in the world. She was the first one to openly accept my love and I as a couple. So when I captured this sweet family at their home I was thinking of you Annie Ross. #loveyourgrandma #holdyourhand

For the last 2 years, I have hosted Claremont McKenna’s Silicon Valley Program cohort at the studio for a talk on my business strategies and ethics along with a follow-up photo session.
These bright students led by Andrew Ceperley & Nereida Moussa bring a passion and entrepreneurial spirit that is contagious. I find them super inspiring to be around. Best of luck to you energetic youngins! @pushanhinduja #svp #tech #siliconvalleyprogram #offcampus #alternativeeducation #siliconvalley
