Hello,

Are you feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by your never ending list of things to do?

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"

"Since she came on board I feel clearer and more organised, and it has been such a pleasure working with her every day. From the moment we started working together she integrated into my business seamlessly, picking up the tasks I assigned to her quickly and doing them to a high standard. Emilie is very detail oriented, fantastic at using her initiative and isn't afraid to make helpful suggestions when it comes to streamlining processes and using both of our time as efficiently as possible. 

As a neurodivergent person I came to her with a list of things I was struggling with. She took the time to listen, ask the right questions and take it all on board and came up with a workflow that works well for both of us. 

I know how hard as a business owner to let go and outsource things when you are used to controlling it all yourself. But Emilie has proven to be the thing I needed all along and I'm so grateful to have her on board. I can't recommend her enough!"

This is why I absolutely love what I do. And I don't just mean the praise (although that's definitely a nice bonus). I'm talking about that sense of freedom you get when you don't have to do everything yourself - bringing that to photographers is what keeps me loving every minute of what I do!
