Meet Your Fairbanks, Alaska Photographer

Hi, I am Ashley Leppert.

I am Applegum. Yes, it actually started as a nickname and so it just made sense as a business name when I started photography.  ​I am a wife and mother to 5 silly and wonderful kiddos. I am a custom portrait photographer and I have chosen to specialize in newborn portraiture for the last 9 years.  I pride myself on being the premier portrait photographer for Interior Alaska. Now that my youngest is growing up on me, I'm also taking on weddings once again. Weddings were my first business love, so I'm excited to be available to take them on again!

I love working with my clients to provide a full service, luxury experience to create art that can be cherished for generations. My goal is to make sure you not only walk away with amazing photographs but also cherished memories of the special times in your life. It is unbelievably rewarding to me and I am thrilled to get to share my work with others. Please contact me with any and all questions you may have.
