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.

Ansley {Toledo Photographer}

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

I was so excited to hang out and grab some photos of Ansley. She is gorgeous and she has a great sense of style, plus she brought her puppies!!!
Ansley is a sweet girl and I am pretty impressed with her ambitions. She is so easy to photograph and her eyes are almost teal, I was so so excited to get these edited and on the blog for you guys.

Seriously her eyes are GORGEOUS!!! Plus I realized how grown up she looks, I somehow always miss that transition from kid to young adult. I feel like it comes out of nowhere.

I had to get a couple of her puppies πŸ™‚

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.

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

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

I think the girls adore their new cousin πŸ˜‰

πŸ™‚ 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.

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!

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

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

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

LOVE the hair! Shows how fast she is really going!

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

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

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

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™‚

A New Family {Toledo Family Photography}

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

Stephanie and her family live in Cincinnatti, they drove up just for the weekend and wanted to use me for their family photos! I really felt honored that someone that far away even reads my little blog let alone wanted me to do their family photos! They had a new addition a few months ago, Isaac! They adopted Isaac from South Africa. He is six and is such a cuddly guy and so full of happy energy! I think he has turned their world upside down! Especially big brother, Drake. Stephanie added on a second location and a change of clothes to the Lilac package. I have too many favorites so I am going to split their session into two posts!

I got to photograph this beautiful girl this morning and it was so much fun! She has grown so much in a year and to be honest I did not recognize her at all! You can check her out from last year’s family shoot here. She has a great sense of style and about the cutest smile! She was a trooper too, any crazy idea I had she was willing to try it and treck all over the park for it! Here are my favorites of Claire:

You’re My Best Friend

Monday, July 19th, 2010

 

Thursday I got to spend some time with my niece Em and her best friend M to do photos, which we’ve been trying to organize since last summer! Em & M are like 2 peas in a pod: always talking a mile a minute and giggling a lot because everything is funny with your BFF. These two are smart, talented, funny, very sweet and beautiful (and WAY less awkward than I was at 14!)

Here are some of my favorites from our session…
