About Us

My name is Ashlyn Nabors and I am the proud owner of My Baby's First Photos. I have been an ultrasound sonographer for several years. I was born and raised in Southern California, where I also attended college specializing in diagnostic medical sonography. The first time I experienced 3D/4D ultrasound was while I was pregnant with my oldest son, it was a life changing moment and from then on I knew this was an experience I wanted to bring to other families. After working in a hospital setting I realized elective ultrasound was where my heart was. I spent a short time visiting South Carolina and decided this was where I wanted to raise my children and open my first elective ultrasound studio. I absolutely love what I do and take pride in making this an unforgettable moment for each person that walks through our doors. I look forward to creating memories for you and your family that will last a lifetime.
