I was selected as 1 of the 150 Faces of Our Redwood City Community in a public display at the 150th Festival & Flower Extravaganza and in the 150 Faces of Our Community book.

Thanks Jose Luis Aguirre for volunteering your time to capture community portraits, to Barbara Pierce for making it happen and to my bike buddy and friend who nominated me Billy James What a humbling experience to be in front of the camera. I love this city! xoxo

My photographs of advocates against human trafficking were exhibited at the San Mateo County Fair last weekend alongside paintings by Megan Stevens Montanti thanks to Belinda Carr Pamela Estes and Before Our Very Eyes

My two years of photo work has taught me how blind we can be to this local issue. I took an online training to learn more and it really helped bring my awareness to how traffickers creep into our communities and target people when they are vulnerable.

Be the eyes for our children our community and our neighbors.

If you want to learn more take this brief Stanford training below.

I'm honored to exhibit my portraiture of human trafficking advocates at the San Mateo County Fair in the Expo Hall today and this week.

I opened up my studio to 11 amazing advocates doing the hard work to protect our local communities.

Learn what modern day slavery looks like in the Bay Area. View quilts made for survivors and also contribute to a new quilt. Learn about local organizations that fight modern day slavery - human trafficking.

Thank you Pamela Estes and Belinda Carr for including me in Before Our Very Eyes-San Mateo County Fair Art/Education Exhibit

Come join us to learn one of the oldest photographic processes; Cyanotypes!

I will be facilitating a handful of workshops this summer and would love to see your creations. Visit this link to sign up:
www.volunteersignup.org/RALCE

We will provide all the materials you’ll need but recommend bringing a few objects, found or otherwise to make your own unique impressions. We will give you a brief history of cyanotypes, a demonstration of the process and guidance in creating your own works. Each participant will receive 3 sheets of 5x7 treated paper, gloves and sample objects. Once your cyanotype pigment has set, you are welcome to leave your cyanotypes to fully dry or please bring something to carry the wet paper home. At the end of the workshop, we ask that you donate 1 cyanotype for use in a new artwork celebrating Redwood City in our Sesquicentennial year.

Space is limited to the first 20 participants that sign up. #redwoodcity #thebookproject #briantaylor #fungcollaboratives #cyanotypes

It's so nice when an old friend needs a new portrait and drives all the way to the peninsula to see you. Yula in the studio #makeportraits

Since I opened my photography studio, weddings are a less prominent part of my business but when I decide to accept, I'm showing up for the love 100%. Here is a beautiful reflection from my last wedding client, Clark & Katherine. Much love to you rockstars! https://www.yelp.com/biz/erin-ashford-photography-redwood-city-2?hrid=_5NQTETNED4iUfGhntr6IQ&utm_campaign=www_review_share_popup&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=(direct) #paloaltoweddings #erinashford
