Meet The Owner

Hello, my name is Amber Flowers. My existence began in Glasgow, Kentucky and I have remained here the majority of my life. I have been experimenting with photography and creating websites since my teenage years. Now I am in my 30’s and busy managing my thriving small business. It’s not always easy, but it’s rewarding and satisfying to do something I love.

When not working with clients, I volunteer at Mammoth Cave National Park, where I have the wonderful opportunity to see and assist with all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. I also have an obsession with bats, so we’re a match made in karst heaven. I am passionate about the conservation and preservation of nature and proud to be an Eco-friendly small business.

I am a mother of two humans and several furry children. Hobbies include working in my garden or tending to my houseplant jungle, swimming under a starry sky, singing my heart out and going on an adventure. I collect rocks and fossils and explore antique stores with reverence.

Favs: Peppermint essential oil, bats (Chiroptera), dark chocolate, glitter (it’s messy, but so is life and both are beautiful!), earth sciences (especially Geology, Paleontology and Meteorology) and stars (both the shape and the real sky orbs).
