Hello,

Business administrative support

There are many essential, but often time-consuming, admin tasks that are part and parcel of running a successful business. From ensuring a consistent presence on social media, chasing unpaid invoices and keeping on top of the mountain of emails.


If you're starting to feel like these tasks are taking you away from your revenue generating tasks, or the activities that will push your business forwards, then it might be time to outsource to us. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Lifestyle management

As small business owners, our work life and home life can often blur into one. Replying to emails whilst on hold to the doctors, or remembering your car insurance is due for renewal when you're knee deep in meeting prep.


On top of our usual business administration support, we also offer general lifestyle management, ensuring both your work life and home life remain free from chaos so you can concentrate on what matters to you. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

"I came across Ashwood VA whilst searching for a virtual assistant and I'm so glad I found her! She has been fantastic from the start and always there to offer guidance, new ideas, support when I'm stuck and works at a pace I am comfortable with. Since working together the biggest transformation is my CRM. Right from our first phone call, I have had more clarity and feel a lot less overwhelmed, giving me more time to focus on photography and other aspects of my business. If you are on the fence about getting a VA, get in touch with Emilie, she has been a massive help"

You know that saying, "two heads are better than one"? Well, it's true. Whether it's bouncing around ideas or ticking tasks off your to-do list, a virtual assistant can really help tackle the everyday challenges in your business.

And when you're stuck or unsure about something, your virtual assistant will either have the answers, be ready to figure things out or connect you with someone who can help.

Together, you form an unstoppable duo with a shared vision and drive to elevate your business.

If you're searching for the right VA I highly recommend having a look at  @bemyva_uk and @societyofvirtualassistants

If you've got an eagle eye, you've probably seen this quote in quite a few of my pics: "Do more of what makes you happy."

I was in a pretty dark place for a while, and what's strange is I didn't even realise it. 

I was stuck in this never-ending hamster wheel, running at full speed and never giving myself time to reflect on what really made me happy.

But when I was unexpectedly made redundant, everything changed.

It was my turning point. 

I grabbed life by the balls and seized the opportunity to do more of what makes me happy. 

And that's when I became a VA!

The VA industry is a very very special place. A lot of us work alone, but we never feel alone. Collaboration over competition isn't just a phrase thrown around; it's the absolute heartbeat of the community. 

And it's no exaggeration that VAs are the superheroes of small businesses. 

As the fabulous @va_mentor sums it up, "We wear so many hats – organisers, strategists, tech wizards, social media managers, do'ers and the list goes on. We keep businesses running smoothly and help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams."

Honestly, words couldn't possibly express how grateful I am to this incredible industry, the supporters, my fellow VAs, and, of course, my amazing clients. 

You've all given me the opportunity to do more of what makes me happy!

Happy International VA Day! 🎉🎉🎉

A question I often get from photographers seeking help with social media is about getting shoots over to me.

And I get it, your time is precious, the last thing you want is a messy toing and froing about social media!

So, I have a really easy system that effortlessly integrates into your existing workflow.

Here's how it works:

After sending the gallery to your clients, you just fill out a quick online form to share the gallery link, list any suppliers, and specify anything special you want to highlight about the shoot. You can even upload a client questionnaire if it has the relevant info.

And that's it! 

I'll take care of the rest, crafting engaging social media posts and giving you a consistent online presence.

Got questions about this or anything else? Drop them below, or shoot me a message.
