Let me tell you about a little brick shack in Hardinsburg KY. I searched and searched everywhere looking for something I could call my second home and take photos throughout the winter. I made phone calls and even contemplated taking on the entire project of gutting a standing building and starting from nothing. After feeling defeated over and over again I finally decided to just give up, my dream of opening up my own studio has fallen short and after 10 years maybe it wasn't meant to happen. Well, driving trough town that day I passed a place that I have HUNDREDS of times before only to realize there was actually a " FOR RENT" sign in the window and the building had been empty for quite some time. That was it, That was this journey's new beginning. I quickly called for a meeting with the lady that owned it only to never get a phone call back even after I called and left a message twice. Again defeat was written all over me. Nope that's it the towel was thrown in ( not really because that is not who I am) I went by again another day and realized I had called the wrong number for days now! Way to go Tiff, Jeez I missed it by one number. My fingers excitedly put the number in the first time but one number off stopped me from getting an answer. Back to calling I got a hold of the sweetest little Dorothy and Soon thereafter had me my own little studio. I am just so excited to finally have an opening date. There is so much to do still but so much to capture and stories that will fill that building. Dynamite Image will have a home of it's own and add to the community on a whole other level. (deep breaths) I am ready to move forward to this big step with you guys. Stay tuned.
OPENING JULY 13th 2019
Webster, Kentucky holds a treasure of family time, laughter and lots of calming moments in a lavender field. Out on Fairview Lavender farm we have had the pleasure of photographing so many families and portraits. There isn't anything quite like sitting , running, or truly being immersed in your feelings than with a refreshing calming scent of lavender. I could literally stay for hours enjoying the view ( the place should be called great view) the birds and the bees that greet the farm with sweet tweets and the buzz of Summer approaching. This is my 3rd year going out to the farm and I fall in love more and more every year. I couldn't imagine a better way than to open June up every year in the field of tranquility. Here are a few of my favorites from our Lavender minis this year!
The farm is equipped with a quaint store with lots of lavender infused desserts, skin care items and other goodies! Go see this hidden Kentucky treasure!
