I am

Ashley Cauley

I'm the person behind Rustic Thyme Studios and here is what you need to know about me... ​


  • I consume an unhealthy amount of caffeine each day. At this point it's likely all the water in my body has been replaced with Diet Coke and iced coffee. 

  • I'm a farmer's wife. But only in the sense that I am married to a farmer and my kids are OBSESSED with cows. If you ask me anything other than what is on the farm, I'll likely refer you to my husband, Curtis. He is pretty awesome and runs Cauley Ag Estates (which is a real that counts right?).

  • I LOVE laughter. I actually don't know how not to laugh. My laugh is loud and obnoxious and the harder I try to contain it, the more eruptive it is. Want to get me to snort? Just whip out your best laffy taffy joke.


  • I have the cutest furbabies. They are the fluffiest, cutest dogs. Want to know more about them? Why... yes...  I'd be happy to show you a million pictures of them. Oops.


  • I HATE socks and baked beans. Yep, I said it publicly. Send all the hate mail you want. 

  • My studio is my home away from home. If the curtain is open and the lights are on... stop on in and say hello.

Session Information... 

I offer four package options so you can select the package that's perfect for your family. Packages start at $300.

All sessions include access to my exclusive wardrobe, prop and backdrop collection. Also included in your session is access to my styling service (perfect for families and senior sessions), a proofing gallery with tons of images from our session, download credits to download your favorite images, and a personal print release. I also keep your gallery online forever so you can come back to it as many times as you want. Expiration dates belong on food... not on your galleries.
