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.

4th of July weekend in Beulah

Sunday, July 19th, 2009


As promised, here are some of my photos from vacation in Michigan where my husband and I visited the beautiful Benzie County area, on the North Western side of the "Mitten." We had a really great time, it was very relaxing -with many photo ops for me:)

(You may have already seen some of those photo ops in the "Summertime Fun" blog post)

Our first full day there was July 4th, and just outside our accommodations in Beulah was a parade! We also got to see fireworks right from our patio and we were super close to Crystal Lake and Lake Michigan.

Here are some images that I shot while we were there…


We stayed in this old Court house that has been turned into condos- what a great idea!


 This next flag  was on top of Fire Engine 5, parked along Crystal Lake the night of the fireworks.

 Anyone who has been to Elberta Beach or the Trick Dog Cafe may recognize this sign:)

 And my favorite of the bunch…this was from the Special Olympics float for the parade, it was all decked out for the 4th & along the side of the float was their motto, “Let me win but if I can not win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

What a great trip it was, hope to make it back up again next year. if you ever get to go, make sure to check out East Shore Market (for my FAVORITE pizza ever), and Crystal Crate & Cargo in Beulah, Trick Dog Cafe and the Cabbage Shed in Elberta, and Celia’s (for the BEST cinnamon rolls in the WORLD) and The Betsie Bay Inn in Frankfort. There are tons more places  to check out in the area- and many that we have never been, all the more reason to go back, I guess!






The Coziest Getaway

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

 Today I photographed a place I have stayed at; The Millhouse in Grand Rapids, OH. My boy and I got to stay there and it is wonderful! It is so cozy, the food is awesome, and the hosts Ron and Kathy couldn’t be more hospitable! Every detail of this B&B is immaculate! I think everyone should stay at the Millhouse! Here are some of my favorites!


It is so charming! Love the history!

There’s the number, go book a night now!

garden room detail

I told you every detail was just right!

They have little guest books in each room, they get lots of love from their guests!

A cozy chair for naps or reading a good book!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the sign!

One of the paths in the garden in the back!

Look how cozy and beautiful!

I have to add one extra tidbit of information!  Kathy makes (and sells) the best scones I have ever tasted! If I could eat them everyday for every meal I would! My hub and I recommend The Millhouse for any couple looking for a romantic getaway!
