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.

Big Secret Revealed!!

…..just kidding it's not here. Go check here!! ::Hint:: hit refresh!


Free Session! {Toledo Photography}

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Alright everyone. I had this CRAZY idea! I got a text the other day of a drawing of Dr. Rufus and I LOVED it! My little sister Kacie and her friend Abigail constantly are drawing photos of my crazy looking dog.  It got me to thinking….I really love seeing drawings and interpretations of that silly face. I want you all to get creative. You can make a drawing or a digital art piece featuring Dr. Rufus and either email it to me or mail it to me (if you want the address shoot me an email and the winner with the best/funniest Dr.Rufus drawing gets a free session (family, child or couples). You get all the prints with the package and everything else it comes with (editing etc). The deadline is May 31, 2011. There are no restrictions on size or who can enter (I ask no profanity though…not my cup o tea) I am excited to see entries and to see my client's creativity! You can check out Rufus photos here and here. PS I will post a few that just crack me up and there will also be prizes for runner's up!


It’s the little things {Toledo Photography}

Friday, May 13th, 2011

I've been saving this photo for a couple weeks or so. I took it the morning I photographed the magnolia tree. As I was photographing I looked down and saw morning light shining through some dew on their grass. It made these beautiful mini rainbows! I'd never seen anything like it and it just put a smile on my face:)

Just a Note {Toledo Photography}

Friday, March 18th, 2011


Hi everyone! I am getting booked up quickly for this season so if you would like to book a session with me be sure to do so quickly! I have one maybe two Saturdays left in April, one or two Saturdays in July, one Saturday in August, and one in September. There is not a lot left to choose from so if Saturdays are a necessity for your family be sure to email me ASAP. Otherwise hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday 9 am to 4pm. This season is going to be great! I have many great couples and families lined up! (And course the cutie kiddos!!!!) Can't wait to hear from all of you! And since every post is better with photos here are some of my beanstalk, as we have taken to calling him! These are from when he was a month old. Yes I know a month late but! Client photos are more important to finish quickly so I just edit his when I get an extra few minutes. I am in love with his eyelashes so I took some photos specifically dedicated to those. I'll post some more of him and what else I adore!

You can really see them on his left eye there. He inherited his Dad's perfect long curly eyelashes…he is a heart breaker…watch out girls!

The perfect curl….

I think he is exquisite:) I am just totally in love with this little boy! I love living through what I document for my clients. I feel a deeper connection now and I truly know how important the baby photos are! I had an inkling before but now I know they are priceless!

My New Hobby

Playing Around {Charlotte Senior Photography}

Sunday, January 4th, 2009


I have been looking at some of my new work lately and decided something was missing. I have these edgy images in urban settings and I need them to feel that way beyond the regular color correcting and what I found after some digging was a real treasure and I wanted to share it with you! Please leave comments and vote if it works in enhancing the edgy urban feel I am going for! I just took some examples from the past couple of sessions!

You can see the cooler tones and the higher contrast as well as the overall vibrant color. I feel if city noise had a color this would be it!


I really love this filter with brick (above) and corrugated metal (in image below).

I hope you like my new found treasure! I love discovering new things, it gets me all pumped up! Don't forget to tell me what you think! Thanks for stopping by!


Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008


I am now on Twitter! You can follow me there! It is a big networking website, it’s fun to talk to new people and see what other photographers are doing around the country! I have a photo session this afternoon so I will be posting those images very quickly and you will see why!
