Definitely agree with Ashley
she's the best out there!
Aside from photographers, I think a lot of the model moms are photographers or dabble in photography themselves. I don't really like using people who need to actually book their own session at a photographer because unfortunately, I ended up with horrible pictures a few times because "their photographer wasn't available". It's really a gamble. It all seems so sweet that you get pictures for product, but if I start calculating how much product I sent out and wasn't happy with the photos... I'm sure it'll add up to quite a bit. It's a real gamble. Some modeling agencies also allow you to book directly with a photographer - which would be the same situation as Ashley. You know the photographer's style, and you trust them to get you the models you need. HTH!
