About the speaker

Ashley Jones is a friend of grief and an advocate of love.

Ashley and her husband, Kyle, became parents of a beautiful little girl named Skylar in November of 2009. At just two months old, Skylar was diagnosed with a terminal condition and wasn’t given long to live. Ashley and Kyle made it a point to celebrate life and make the most of their time together, which included a professional portrait session for their family of three. When Skylar died at 21 months old, Ashley truly recognized the power of photos and their ability to help through the grieving process.

In the years that followed, Ashley would donate portrait sessions to anyone she heard of facing a terminal diagnosis to give that gift to others and love it forward. This led to the formation of Love Not Lost, a nonprofit photographing people facing a terminal diagnosis to preserve memories for those they love. Through free portrait sessions, beautiful photo albums, and meaningful relationships, they celebrate life and support people in grief.
