A local professional photographer will have her work displayed in a  national art show in September in Springfield, Ill.

Ashley Bringenberg of Barre is owner of Ashley Bringenberg Photography in Batavia. She will have a black-and-white portrait of a child, ages 3 to 9, on display as part of the Simply Me Portrait Project created by the Photography Business Institute. The institute is selecting one image from certain photographers to feature excellence in portraiture and entrepreneurship during the institute’s conference in September.

Bringenberg is looking for more kids to photograph to submit for the art show. She is booked for sessions for Saturday in downtown Batavia. Additional session openings are available between July 8-17. Contact Bringenberg for more information at

“I am so excited for the Simply Me project,” she said. “I never dreamed that my work would get displayed at the national level. I am also so proud to have a portrait of a local child in a nationwide art show.”
