Featured Senior


Say hello to the fun and beautiful Ashleigh New Mexico Senior! This enthusiastic teen came to us all the way from Gallup, New Mexico, to be photographed by Cardwell Aukerman Photography here in Durango, Colorado, for her senior pictures. 

Cheer Squad

Miss Ashleigh is a cheerleader at Gallup High School. Give me an A!  Give me an S! Give me an H! Give me an L! Say  AIGH! What’s that Spell? Ashleigh! And we’ll cheer for you any day, girl! It only takes a few minutes time with her to realize that it’s no surprise that this bubbly and outgoing girl was nominated for the Gallup High homecoming court! 

Ashleigh is a multifaceted girl, besides cheering on her school teams at every game, this girl has a lot of other passions. She is a huge Walt Disney fan as well as a loyal Denver Broncos fan. 

A Senior Shoot Worth Cheering For

From posing against golden aspens to sitting on the train tracks and lounging in urban settings, Ashleigh was a joy to photograph. We love that she picked out such a wide range of outfits that encompass all of her personality. From high fashion to casual with a 1920s nod, darm and moody to school spirit, this teen looked great in every style! 

We had so much fun shooting this lovely lady. Beautiful memories were made, and we felt so honored to be there to capture all of these moments. Ashleigh, you are amazing! As beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.  Thanks for all the fun and excitement we had! We are honored that you chose Cardwell Aukerman Photography for your Durango senior photos. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.  We cherish you, Ashleigh, and wish you the best as you move towards a no-doubt bright future.
