Dad: Is there a bebe in there?
Mama: There’d better be!

Spent the morning with one of my favorite couples, Josh & Kati! Here’s a super sneak peek! More to come when I edit all the photos from their maternity session!

And there’s more! A new delivery at Ansley Studio, you could say. I’ve been promising you new canvas prices and here they are! My gallery-wrapped canvas is museum quality, acid-free, and will be a treasured family heirloom. As a bonus, they need no frame and come ready to hang. Now, let’s get to decorating your home with your family’s smiles & sweet moments!

Not sure what size you want your canvas? Keep in mind that desk prints are 8×10 and under. An 11×14 will fit in a smaller area, but remember that walls are BIG. 30×40 is the perfect size for over the master bed or above the fire place. We can create stunning collections based on your needs. Just saying, 3 vertical 16×24 gallery-wrapped cavases of you & your kids would look stunning and deliver quite the impact!

I’ve had a little something in the works for a while now. I’m pleased to announce my newest addition: a portrait pricing guide! Have questions about pricing or looking for some awesome tips? Those babies are all in here. So check it out on my lifestyle portrait link or download it directly by clicking here. Can’t wait to see you on the other side of my camera!

Last week I was lucky enough to deliver 2 very different wedding books. These are, by far, my favorite product offered by Ansley Studio.

The coffee-table books I offer are unmatched in print quality and craftsmanship. The book covers are made with masonite to make the books smooth, sturdy, and offer lasting protection.

The 110# weight hinged paper lays flat and comes with a UV coating to protect the images for a lifetime. The books are completely acid-free & archival.

They are rated to last 100 years when keep in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and 200 years when keep in a cool dark space such as a box or desk.

They are also custom-designed by an artist to tell the story of the entire wedding day.

This is a family heirloom, one that will last for generations. Ask about the Artist-Designed Coffee Table Books at your next ordering session. They’re perfect for weddings, baby’s first year, sweet 16 parties, wedding guest books, and senior portraits.

I am not one of those cool people with a $700 phone that can do everything from search the web to tell me the weather.

Honestly, I can stick my head outside the door if I’m curious about the weather. 🙂

But, one of things I miss out on by not having an uber-fancy phone is being able to show friends and family my latest photos when I run into them.

Until now, that is!

These darling Accordion Mini-Books have stolen my heart! They are perfectly wallet sized and easy to whip out of my purse to show off my latest portraits, engagement session, or wedding.

Bonus points for clients, they come in sets of 3. Keep one for yourself and send off 1 to each of the mothers (or grandmothers) too!

Accordion Mini-Books are available on all of our paper options: standard semi-gloss, art linen, art watercolor, art recycled, and pearl. UV coating can also be added for added protection and longevity. Cover options include fabrics, leathers, suedes, or a personalized custom photo cover in lustre or metallic with a matte laminate. The Accordion Mini-Books have up to 14 customizable panels and frosted slip-covers are an easy add-on for even greater protection from what hides in your purse. Ask about them at your next ordering session!

Ansley Studio has always worked to ensure the fine art portraits we produce will last beyond our lifetime. We’ve also worked to be the best green business we can. Owner & Master Photographer Ansley Simmons uses digital media to cut down on chemical use, only purchases rechargeable batteries for our equipment, uses electronic delivery for proofing images as well as online marketing, reduces paper waste by reading online, and encourages our clients to only print the photos they want to display – all traditions started on day one in 2006.

Today, we’re joining forces with a print company in California to offer eco-friendly specialty products. Now when you order a gallery wrapped canvas of you and your sweetheart, a ChromaLux display of your favorite wedding image, or an aluminum metal print of your funky teen, you can proudly say it was produced under the greenest conditions currently offered. Our wood comes from USA reforestable farms, we never use OBA (or bleached) canvas, and our coatings are non-solvent and biodegradable.

When Ansley says our products are museum quality, archival, and made to last around 100 years, she means it! Want to see the phenomenal quality for yourself? Request to see the samples at your next ordering session. Visit for more info and call 229/224-6021 to chat about your on-location, natural light portrait session.
