Whats Next?

As many of you heard at the Fashion & Wine for Valentines on Thursday, Katie with The Mason Jar Boutique, made her big announcement that she has overgrown her space at Ashley Photography and will be moving to a larger location just a couple doors down for us. We couldn’t be more excited for her success!

But many of you have been wondering what is going on with the space that Katie occupied at Ashley Photography. We are super excited to announce that Tim & I will be opening our new furniture and handmade item boutique, WHICH will be called, Creative Lush! We have been re-purposing furniture for years, and cannot wait to have a storefront to display these amazing pieces! We will be selling re-purposed furniture, handmade items, and a few boutique decor & gift items as well! Lets call it a GIFT AND HOME DECOR SHOPPE! We are excited to announce that we will be featuring items from The Little Doe Boutique (such as baby moccasins!) and she will be carrying a “child” line with us as well! We have some super cute child clothing that will be featured, and we will also be featuring¬† boutique handmade child jewelry, along with press-printed items such as invitations and greeting cards made by yours truly!

We are super big on supporting local hand-made artists, and are happy to announce that we will continue to be carrying items from Jacqueline Nemmers, her amazing jewelry line, including the famous Gumball Necklaces for kiddos, witch of course we already carry in our location! She is going to also supply us with her adult line of necklaces as well, and we cannot wait!

Of course, we still have TONS of scrap-booking items available as well, including paper, stickers, templates, etc. So you won’t want to miss out on that either! We have an amazing line of BOUTIQUE picture frames ON THEIR WAY TOO!

When do we open? Katie is set to premier sometime in April in her new location, and we are set to launch in April as well!

Our vendors are so excited to share their products with you, and we cannot be more excited. We have a grand opening set up, so please, stay tuned as we share our exciting new adventure with you!

Here are just a few pieces Tim and I have done in the past, and cannot wait to share with you!

A friend of mine recently asked me to photograph her newborn in the Fresh 48. This is an amazing trend that Is really becoming amazing in this area!

What this entails is me coming to your place of birth within the first 48 hours of birth. This isn’t a typicaly newborn session, I won’t be bringing any newborn props or lights, this is all natural, documenting the relationships between baby and his or her family within those first hours of life!

What is included in this package?

  • 24/7 on call 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your due date- This means that I will arrange my schedule to photograph your newborn baby within 48 hours of birth.
  • Two Hours of Photography at hospital (or in home, if you arrive home or birth in home)

Our blog features not only recipes, crafts and product reviews, but Katie shares her intake on what its like to be a pilots wife! And of course, we both share our thoughts on what its like to be a mom, and a business owner including our struggles, and our successes!

2015 In Person Consultations

Wow, that is all I can say for 2014. Not only were we able to expand our studio, but we also were able to take on new employees, attend seminars and workshops, and provide a higher quality customer service for our clients. And of course, my family welcomed our fourth child into our lives, Hayes! So as you can see, 2014 definatly was not uneventful!

One thing we hear over and over from our clients is how our customers want the opportunity to view their images and choose HIGH QUALITY, prints through us. They want the sit down. The viewing. The opportunity to make additional requests, prints, products, and to provide feedback from their session. So, taking in the feedback, and also understanding the industry, we made a few very key insights..

  • First and foremost, our clients want to be able to purchase high quality products that they cannot find elsewhere..
  • They also want to be able to have the files on a CD with a Release to be able to purchase whenever they need.

So, for 2015 we chose NOT to increase our prices. But what we did decide is to provide more value to our sessions and more opportunities to provide a higher quality service. So what does this mean for you?

What this means is, that within two weeks of each session you will be invited back to our studio for an in person consultations. At this time, you will be able to choose the images for your disk, order any prints or products, and request any further editing requests from your session. We no longer will be a discount studio, a “click and dash”, or a studio who simply photographs your family, sends the CD and drops off the planet. I want to help provide the highest quality products while helping you design your wall art to suite your needs.

So bring on 2015, because we are going to ROCK IT and help persevere memories in ways you never thought were possible!

The Greatest Gift of All..

As my birthday tomorrow nears, I can’t help to think where the last year has taken me and how grateful I am for my fans and clients who have stuck with me thick and thin this last year. The growth I have made as a business and a person has been tremendous, and without my fans wouldn’t of happened. Lets face it, this time last year, I was too busy for my britches, and my business and personal life faced tremendous, and disheartening challenges. Without the feedback and support of my clients, I would have never gotten to where I am today!

So, this is a thank you. Thank you for your feedback and your loyalty; sharing your beautiful families and children with me, and most of all, your friendship. But, the greatest gift of all this past year has been what you have shared with your friends and family. I have been shocked the last few months with how many referrals I have gotten from my clients and fans. I am one of the few blessed photographers who have faced burn-out and have overcome it, and the fact of the matter is that wouldn’t of happened if you didn’t continue to believe in me and my passion.

I hope you continue to share Ashley Photography with your friends and family and help me continue to grow, because I want to continue to be able to help you share precious photos of your children and family as you yourself grow!

As a thank you, I am giving a 20% discount to all new families who mention the name of someone who referred them between now and August 31st. The session doesn’t have to take place in that time frame, but must be booked or tentatively booked.

Again, thank you from myself and my Family! Have a great weekend!
