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.

The Dance Factory {Toledo Photography}

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

So Kati called me and wanted some photos done of her competitive dance team. Kati is the owner and teacher at the Dance Factory in Perrysburg. I gotta say I was beyond impressed. One her girls followed direction so well, and two somehow their bodies can do these crazy things! I mean sometimes they look superhuman! It was so fun and honestly I have been a huge fan of dance photography since college. I used to rent books from the library that were just photos of dancers doing crazy things (well crazy to me) and would pour over them for hours. I was so excited to get to try my hand at this kind of photography!

I love I was able to freeze them in time. You can really see the expressiveness and feel the emotion just from one movement!

She is really flying that high! I couldn't believe it!

My favorite two moves I saw. I think it's the form they are in as well as the elegance.

Kati, thanks so much for having me out. I had a blast. Girls, hope your competition went well! You all looked fantastic and thanks for putting up with me and allowing me to see all your moves over and over! I just couldn't believe my eyes! Ladies, if you are looking for a dance academy for your kiddos you can't go wrong with the Dance Factory! At least check it out and see what you think. Kati is a fantastic teacher πŸ™‚

Alysa Skates {Toledo Event Photography}

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Hey all, remember this girl? Yeh, I hardly recognized her either! She has grown a TON since I have seen her! I was so excited when Melissa called to see if I was available to document Alysa's skating recital. (I have no idea if that is what it's called but let's just go with it). I was so impressed with Alysa (and the other skaters of course!) She did those twirly things and jumps and even ice skated backwards! I think many people are aware of how clumsy I am so needless to say just me trying to ice skate forwards is a big deal and here is Alysa just blowing me away! Not only was it fun to watch all the talent on the ice it was fun to photograph this too. I always like documentary style photography…being the observer from the outside. I kind of felt a bit like a reporter! Anyway, here are my favorite shots….it was 50's themed. I really think I would've been great at growing up in the fifties. Just love the clothes πŸ™‚

Lacing up and getting ready to go! I hadn't been to the Bowling Green ice arena in some time and it brought back some great childhood memories.

One of my favorite things about the photos is her poodle skirt twirling everywhere!

The star of the show!

Melissa, I really adore your family and I'm so glad I keep meeting more of them! I'm excited to see how much all the cousins have grown at our session in July!

Just a note, my weekdays are beginning to book up as well now so if you would like photos this spring or early summer be sure to shoot me an email πŸ™‚

Theresa & James

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

Back in May Bethany and I did a session of all the men in this family and we had a blast!

Well, I went back over the weekend to get shots of James and Theresa in their sports uniforms, she plays softball and he plays football. Again I had tons of fun-and I swear it looks like they each grew 5 inches since May! They are both so photogenic and fun to be around- what a great session:) Check it out…

James had the best football poses- wish I could show you all of them- but this post is already extra large:)

I couldn’t believe how grown up Theresa looked when I got to their place- isn’t she beautiful??

I had them change into regular clothes to grab a few more shots of them since I got so many good pics of them in their uniforms-here are some of those…

 

And one last photo just for Mom-

I heard it’s a special day today…

 

Thanks guys for having me back out for more photos! Bob and Angie- you two have really wonderful kids, good job-and can’t wait for you to see the rest of the pics-it was SO hard to narrow it down for the post! 

J & T-thanks for being such great models- hope you both have really super seasons with your sports:)

Keep your eyes on the blog-we’ve got lots more great stuff coming up. And as always we love to read your comments!

-Tabitha
