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.

Bean is TWO! {Toledo Child Photography}

Monday, February 11th, 2013

I can not believe how much the time has flown since my little one was new. It has been by far the best two years of my life. I really wish time would slow down….if these two years have gone this fast I can only imagine that I will blink and he will be moving away to college ::sigh:: I love this little boy with all my heart and if I say so he's quite dapper (and a tad sassy).

He was all pumped about putting his hands in his pockets…thought he was a big boy! He also HAD to wear his hat. He is starting to have opinions about his wardrobe. Hats are usually a must in his eyes πŸ™‚

LOVE tat mischievous grin! It's when he is about to do something or say something sassy!

He is playing his game of BOO that he learned from my niece πŸ™‚ He just thinks he is so funny (I do too!)

Ahh…cuteness!

 

So, I am totally in love with this fella. He knows it. He is also loving my camera lately, not only being in front of it but taking photos and I have brought him to one session and it was adorable watching him try to get a kid older than him to smile πŸ™‚ Maybe one day he will be running this blog πŸ˜‰

I have some big big news coming up this week and I've been saving some blog posts for this slower time of year! A few weddings as well as some ridiculous cute kids coming up!

Also be sure to let me know welll in advance if you would like a birth documentary. I have to make sure not to plan much else around the anticipated due date, don't want to miss those irreplaceable first moments!

Gideon is TWO! {Toledo Baby Photographer}

Friday, October 26th, 2012

How did he go from this….

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

…to this?!? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was meeting him for the first time. Here he is two years old. He is just the sweetest thing, honestly. He just happily sat wherever I suggested and smiled and kept hugging his momma.

He just kept waving at me….too cute. PS check out his hair… It's so incredible. Plus Erin tells me he sits happily during styling. What a good boy πŸ™‚

Erin, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your kids while they are young. I really enjoy spending time with them. They are always so sweet and they just make my job so fun. Your photos are uploading now!

This tiny peanut is two!! How did this happen? I remember her when…..She has blossomed into this complex combination of sassy and sweet and she knows just when to play which. She has also been trained young…she knows what her job is when the camera comes out πŸ™‚

Norah {Toledo Kid Photographer}

Friday, April 6th, 2012

I can't believe Norah is turning two already. She is also about to be a big sister! She is just talking all the time and she still loves to jump. She had all kinds of things to tell me. She morphed from a baby to a little girl in what seems like overnight. Love this gorgeous little one!

Beanie is ONE!

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Seriously how did that happen!?!? Yes my precious little boy is a year. It flew by so fast, I feel like just yesterday I found out I was going to be a Momma. Here he is, running (literally) everywhere, talking my ear off, and learning new things every day. He is about the happiest guy I have ever seen (besides hubs…if I didn't know better I'd think those two get happy injections. They are NEVER grumpy!) and he is so sweet and clever! I can't believe he went from this….

(Look how itty bitty ::sigh::)

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

…..to this……

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

….to this! Honestly that is so much growing and changing in just one year! I think you can tell what a sassy fella he is πŸ™‚

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

His favorite toys right now are his sock monkeys…and his Mimi and Poppi just keep giving him more! Mostly he chews on them but they are the only stuffed animals he likes. Plus we gave him a sock monkey party (more on that later.)

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

Better enjoy those cute buns….it's the last time you will see them πŸ™‚ I figure tooshy shots are fine until a year. They are too cute!!

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

IF you are thinking that's the coolest hoodie ever….you'd be right. Beanie knows it too, he growls when he wears it. (Although he growls all the time so it's hard to be sure it's the hoodie:P)

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

LOVE that smile, the one on the right is precious to me. He likes to run around arms up when he's super happy. Whenever we say arms up he will throw them up and just run as fast as he can with a big smile on his face. He's not smiling too much there because he had never stepped on grass before and hadn't given a verdict on it yet πŸ™‚

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

He does this a lot too…smacks the side of his head. He's very expressive…I don't know who he gets that from πŸ˜‰

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

Bean thinks his Daddy is FUN-NY. Momma…eh..not so much. I am a good tickler, but Daddy is the funny one:) I don't get boy humor though…punching and kicking and spitting. Outfit courtesy of Mimi.

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

I've been obsessed with his profile ever since Tabitha showed it to me. I can't decide if I wanna grab his face and smooch him or rip my eyes out because he's so cute I might melt!

http://www.wellspringphoto.com/blog/2011/01/20/im-a-mom-toledo-birth-documentary/

Oh my heavens….I might die he's so precious.

http://www.wellspringphoto.com/blog/2011/01/20/im-a-mom-toledo-birth-documentary/

http://www.wellspringphoto.com/blog/2011/01/20/im-a-mom-toledo-birth-documentary/

He makes a lot of faces….again I don't know where he gets it from πŸ™‚

http://www.wellspringphoto.com/blog/2011/01/20/im-a-mom-toledo-birth-documentary/

HAHA! That face on the right..he makes that face when you ask him "where's your nose?"

Most of the photos I took of Bean throughout the year were taken at my own home, except for these last ones in the fedora. Now you all know that you have great spots for photos in your home. Even if you don't see them yourself I will!
I can't believe he is a year, (he's actually 14 months today and he's been walking for 5 months yowza) and I still can't believe how much I love him. Sometimes I just look at him and think I just may explode! He's brought so much joy, love, and laughter into our house. Hubs and I think what did we ever do without him? I mean really. I guess we slept in on weekends…that's probably about it. He keeps us on our toes and makes us better people.
FYI we are not going to be trying for another soon, so no comments please! We are enjoying Beanie too much to worry about that right now πŸ™‚ Rest assured whenever that does happen you'll know!

Jonathan {Toledo Baby Photography}

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Wow! That is all I can say, this boy keeps getting cuter and cuter! The last time I saw him was 12 hours before I went into labor! He still had baby whispy hair.  He had those big cheeks that I loved so much, and he was so tiny! I saw him yesterday and whoa! He's a kid! Gorgeous white blonde thick hair, super tall and like I said, even more handsome! He is really looking like a kid nowadays. Hard to believe when I first met him he was my own Bean's age now! Really shows how time flies and we gotta hang on to every moment, and just enjoy it! Here are my favorites of this sweet boy!

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

There is that gorgeous hair! Beth was telling me the swings are his favorite (they hit this park 5 times a week!) and boy was she right!

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

Still a small glimpse of his chubby cheeks…they are almost gone!

Couldn't decide which finish I liked better!

Beth, thank you so much for allowing me to watch Jonathan grow! I am so fond of him and I just love hearing new stories about him and seeing all the new things he can do! The rest will be ready tomorrow!!
