About Bethany & Wellspring Photography

I’m excited about how Wellspring Photography is growing and through that I am able to learn more as well as venture into new areas of photography. We now offer packages for any events in life, from as big as weddings and births to as small as your child’s first time making chocolate chip cookies. We are now even doing school photographs from preschool through high school, as well as family, pregnancy, and baby sessions. Any photography need you have, we would be honored and excited to fulfill it.

Here at Wellspring Photography we love photography and love capturing the important moments in life. Any moment worth remembering is worth photographing.

It’s A…….. {Toledo Newborn Photography}

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

This was the text I received while waiting to hear the news about Bridget. They had been waiting for baby number four for a long time! She had some serious false labor a couple weeks prior…none of us thought she would last this long! But she did and the day had come and we were all patiently waiting to hear the news if it was a boy or girl! Finally after what seemed like FOREVER (especially because of the text thanks Vincent!) was saw him walking down the hall….it's a BOY! Welcome to the world little (or should I say big!) Paul!

Mama wanted this photo of her last baby, Emily. I didn't realize that until the session has been going on for some time and miss Em was wide awake! So! I made sure to get one first for her of Mr.Paul! Yes….he is one tall dude! Those are adult towels!

Waiting for Baby #4 {Toledo Maternity Photography}

Monday, May 21st, 2012

So I'm a bit behind on posting these photos (that's what you get for being related to me!) This family has grown so much in the last 8 years! These are their photos waiting for their final sweet surprise. They always choose to be surprised by baby's gender in the delivery room (LOVE that!) so this little one had a big brother and big sister rooting for a boy! Also this little one has a big sister who isn't so big!

High school sweet hearts…been 11 years this summer that they have been married!

I saved my favorites for last. This chaos with three kids will only exponentially grow with a fourth….that is the kind of chaos you want in your life! A pile of kids is the best way to spend your time on this earth. Since baby is already here I will post those photos in the morning! Y'all have some super cuteness to look forward to!

Happy Mother’s Day {Toledo Children Photography}

Monday, May 14th, 2012

All these kiddos were gathered together by their parents to give grandma a WONDERFUL mother's day gift! You all know Maggie and Gracie. They are like Wellspring celebrities! Here are their cousins! Sweet kids, all five. It was a great day, I got to shoot in downtown Whitehouse, and use some new backgrounds. So fun! Hope grandma liked her present! She has some cute grandbabies.

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Sweet Maggie and Gracie. So much time has passed since their last photos. They have grown so much!

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Here are the girls in their sweet hats…Angie you always do such a good job dressing them! Meet their cousins, Layne, Chase, and Charlotte. Those big brothers are pretty smitten with that little girl.

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

ummm Katrina? Good luck keeping the girls away from these boys!! Seriously look how handsome.

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

:) Her eyes are so clear and I don't know…greenish blue? Either way, I want to print this for my house!

Thank you all so much for having me out to help with this gift for your mom/grandma for mother's day! I had a great time meeting more cousins and I even got to hold Charlotte for a minute :).  I have been one lucky lady snuggling so many babies lately! My own Bean will snuggle but not like when he was a tiny Bean!! Plus it's just fun to hang out with lovely kids. They kept making me laugh and I got a peak into their little world of their own made up games and nicknames. I always think you can learn a lot from keeps about keeping life simple.

Dane {Toledo Newborn Photography}

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

So, doing newborn sessions is about one of my favorite parts of my job. They are just so tiny and new and cuddly! Dane reminded me a smidge of my own little Bean. They don't really look alike just more personality. Dane is so laid back and just a happy guy. He's so cute I wanted to smoosh his face right off!

toledo newborn photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

toledo newborn photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I've done three newborn sessions since Bean turned one and he still seemed like my little guy….after Dane…Bean suddenly looked huge!

toledo newborn photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

I just love when kids wear their parents clothes! How cute! These mommas are coming with some creative ideas lately! Pinterest anyone?

toledo newborn photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

His tiny wrinkly feet!! Ahh….and the one on the right is from the blooper file….just thought it was so funny how Dane is wearing a tie and looks so stressed out! Hard day at the office, Dane? ;)

Sam and Laura~ Engaged {Elmore Couples Photography}

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

So Sam and Laura totally rock. They are sweet and oh so funny and just generally happy to be around each other. They asked me to come out to Schedel Gardens in Elmore, Ohio to photograph their engagement session. I was so happy to be going to a new location and let me tell you…that place is FAB! I could have stayed all day (but really who wants paparazzi in their face all day?). I really did have such a fun time, my cheeks hurt from smiling when we left.

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

How could she not fall for those dimples?!?

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

They were always laughing (probably somewhat at me too…I think we ALL know how clumsy I am!). I really love to laugh, one of my fave activities so I love being around people who make it easy for me to laugh!

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Laura is so stinkin pretty. She has these beautiful clear blue eyes and such a big smile! I know I am partial to my WP brides and grooms but mine are the best!

toledo couples photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

That's right ladies…Sam custom designed that sucker! So gorgeous!

Sam and Laura I'm so excited for your big day. I got a good preview of how fun it's going to be! The rest will be up soon!

EFG {Toledo Children Photography}

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Esther, Felix, and Gideon have graced the blog many times. They are your typical sweet kiddos. The boys love to run and be wild and Esther is such the girly girl. I asked her "is it crazy having two brothers?" and she rolled her eyes and said "yeh all the time." Gotta love it. Esther is at an age now where she LOVES getting her photo taken. I just love this stage with kids. The age where they can sit still and they like looking at photos of themselves and it's before the awkward I am 12 stage. Felix and Gideon were still uninterested in getting photos taken but they were willing to hang out with me for a little bit! :)

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Mr. Gideon. I think pre-baby me would have categorized this photo as a blooper and tucked it away. However, post baby me (or current baby me? I mean I still have the baby lol) has a feeling this just might be a "Gideon" expression. As a mama I know those are MY favorites of Bean.

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Still can't believe this was Gideon not so long ago!

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Felix! He has tons of his own photo idea and I just let him run with it. (I have many little clients who may one day be creatives themselves!)

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

Then there is Esther. She blows me away! Prettiest little thing and as sweet as pie.

toledo children photography photographer http://www.wellspringphoto.com

She wanted to be photographed all day and sometimes I think that would just be a fun day!

Erin and Joey, thank you so much for letting me hang out with your kids and freeze their sweet faces in time. The rest will be up tomorrow! There is TONS more coming all week on the blog. Babies all over the place!

Karl + Kim~Engaged {Toledo Couples Photography}

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Kim and Karl booked me FOREVER ago! They remind me of hubs and myself. When their wedding rolls around this winter they will have been together around 7 years! (Just like me and hubs!) Karl can really make Kim laugh, it's really sweet. They also have an adorable 4 year old Connor. He wasn't at the shoot but I met him at Kim's sister's wedding (back when I was big pregnant!).  I always love a winter wedding so I know I'm stoked! The shoot was fun too, Karl and Kim are really relaxed and are just easy to be around.
