This year has been a wild ride and I'm sitting here being struck with the reality that September is almost over. What happened to 2023?!
Most of our Flash fans are already aware that we had two massive changes over the summer. First, after months of trying to negotiate our lease, we found ourselves closing our doors at Liberty Center at the end of May. The heartbreak was real - we had been there since the mall opened it's doors in October 2015.
Before the dust had a chance to settle, we were given the news that we had to move our location at The Greene by the end of June. We spent weeks trying to compromise on a new space and in the final hour, we found an incredible space downtown. We tearfully moved our things out after being at The Greene for 13 years. What a summer.
I can't thank all of you enough for the patience and kindness we've seen since these two big changes. We appreciate you all so much for making the visit to our new studio on Monument Ave. We're still settling in and hope to make it feel like home soon, but I am thriving on the change! So many incredible photographic opportunities and locations within walking distance! We hope to see more familiar faces from both our Dayton and West Chester families.
On top of the two big moves, we have softly launched our rental service. Almost everything in our studio is now able for rent: from our larger furniture pieces for events, to our backdrops and props for photographers and DIYers. And on our never-ending list of things, we will be working these things onto our website. And in our down time (what's that?!), we've been staging and photographing real estate.
Moving into the last weeks of September has my mind leaving the oppressive heat and stresses this summer had to offer and going into all lovely things of the fall. Campfires, slow falling leaves, pumpkin carving, and the warm glow of the season. Next post will be much more fun with photos!!
