Big news! | Toledo Ohio Newborn Photography Studio

Toledo Ohio Newborn Photography Studio.jpg

Long time no see! I hope you’ve had an awesome summer!

In case you didn’t already know, I took a break this summer in order to get settled into our new home in TOLEDO OHIO! After spending about 2 years in KY, we have made our FINAL move to Toledo (Sylvania OH to be exact). This is my forever home and I am really looking forward to bringing SBP here :)

Summer is basically over and the kids are back in school, so it’s time to get started on the new Sweet Bloom Photography studio! The new studio is currently under construction and will be located in my home in Sylvania Ohio. Sweet Bloom will offer maternity, newborn and baby milestone sessions for the greater Toledo and Northwest Ohio areas, including Perrysburg, Maumee, Ottawa Hills, Bowling Green, Monclova, Whitehouse, Rossford, Holland and more!

I am really excited (and super nervous) about starting here in Toledo. I have some really fun ideas in the works and I can’t wait to share them all with you! Make sure you’re following me on IG and FB to follow along on this new journey. You can also join our e-mail list so that you can be notified of when we will start taking new bookings

Lexington Kentucky Maternity Photographer Rainbow Baby

Lexington Kentucky Maternity Photographer Rainbow Baby.jpg

“After every storm, there is a rainbow of hope”

Lexington Kentucky Baby Photographer Rainbow Baby.jpg

A rainbow baby is a baby born after the loss of a child. You may not notice it at first glance, however, if you look closely you will notice the rainbows that showed up during this session. I was completely blown away when I realized that not only did this rainbow show up during the maternity pictures but then again during her daughters baby pictures!

I have photographed plenty of sunflare in my day but NEVER a rainbow flare like this! I truly believe her baby was there with us on this day. AMAZING!

Lexington Kentucky Maternity Photographer Pictures.jpg

Who looks this amazing when they are pregnant?? I mean, really. My clients are insanely gorgeous, y’all.

I get a lot of mama’s that just want pictures of their babies — you need to get in front of the camera too! One day, your babies will be grown and I promise you that they would love to see photos of you like this.


Maternity sessions typically take place around 27-35 weeks in your pregnancy - Any time that you feel comfortable works perfectly! Maternity pictures can be done in our Lexington Kentucky photography studio or outdoors at a park, field, etc.

We do have a small selection of maternity pieces that you are welcome to use - We are working on adding more so that we have a bigger wardrobe selection in the future :) We will also send you some recommendations on gowns in all price ranges that will photograph beautifully!

Lexington KY Newborn Photography Studio Central KY

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer! It was pretty hectic here, which you may have noticed by the lack of sharing anything new :)


I'd like to make a little personal/business announcement...

Going forward, I will be taking sessions on a part-time basis only. This is the last year having my youngest baby home and I've come to the conclusion that I really need to be a little more "mama" and a little less "boss lady". This is something that has been weighing heavy on my heart since summer began. I didn't know what to expect with moving to Lexington KY - but you all (should I be saying y'all now???) have kept me extremely busy, which is SUCH an amazing blessing!! However, I just really need to spend more time with my kids & husband...not so much behind a computer screen.

So how will this change things? Well, weekend availability for sessions is going to be very, very small and limited to only 1-2 Sunday's per month (no Saturday sessions ever) - nearly all sessions going forward will take place on weekday mornings/evenings.

Thank you so much for trusting me with your little ones! Keep bringing me those babies :)


NEW OFFICE HOURS

Mon-Thurs: 10am-2pm
Fri-Sun: Closed for family time


After all of that, I had to leave you with some newborn sweetness from a session this summer :)

Lexington KY Maternity Photographer Session at Sunset.jpg

Well, hello there! It has been a long while!

May was an insanely busy month - so much so that there was no time to post anything. Sorry to leave this poor blog, facebook, & instagram hanging like that!

I think I am still recovering from the craziness that was May, however, I also just returned from an amazing trip with my husband to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and had an absolutely amazing time! Now that I am back in the office, I am playing some major catch up on everything :)

I shot this BEAUTIFUL mama to be right before we left for vacation. I cannot get over this light! I feel like I really do not shoot enough maternity sessions...this makes me want to create more time for them!

I also wanted to take a moment to also say that I will only be working part time this summer. My schedule is super limited and nearly full already, which I am so thankful for! My kids are only little for such a short time, so I am really trying to cherish this time with them and spend as much time as possible just being a mommy :)

*Special ends on 4/30/2018, however, session does not have to take place in April


Mini Maternity Sessions can take place in our Lexington KY photography studio -OR- outdoors at a park, prairie/field, etc. The focus is on the mama-to-be, however, daddy & siblings are welcome to be included as well!

Newborn sessions take place in our Lexington KY in-home photography studio between 7-21 days old. We have absolutely everything needed for the session, including hats, headbands, wraps, buckets, bowls, baskets, props, etc. Since the actual arrival of your baby is usually unpredictable, we hold space on the calendar for around the time of your due date - Then once your baby is here, we will set a date/time for the session to take place.

To book this special, a completed policy agreement form and payment of the non-refundable session fee retainer are required at booking. We only accept a limited number of sessions per month, so availability will vary.

Spring is finally here! Now is the time to get on our schedule for all outdoor baby & maternity sessions in Central KY. We only have 2 spots available in April - The trees are going to be blooming and perfect for photos :)

We love photographing baby sessions outdoors! We have a wardrobe full of outfits for boys & girls, headbands, and hats/bonnets. You don't even have to worry about shopping for an outfit - We can take care of that for you!

We also love photographing maternity sessions outdoors! We have a small selection of maternity gowns available and provide lots of inspiration & links to gowns if you'd like to purchase your own :)

Lexington KY Maternity Photographer Pregnancy.jpg

I am looking forward to the spring time and being able to get back outside to photograph maternity sessions! I don't share very many black & white images, however, some times a picture is just begging to be :)

I recommend scheduling maternity sessions to take place between 27-35 weeks - We want your baby bump to be very visible for photos but not too late in the pregnancy. We have a small selection of maternity gowns & accessories and have a list of links to beautiful dresses that we feel will photograph beautifully! We love helping style you, so don't be afraid to ask :)

We are now scheduling outdoor maternity sessions in the Lexington KY area! Those green trees & spring flowers will be here before we know it, so now is the time to get on our calendar!

Includes 5 custom-edited Images of your choice to download
*Additional images available to purchase

Times Available:

Important Info

As always, mini session times are first come, first serve. Completed policy agreement form and payment of the non-refundable $100 retainer (which is applied toward the mini session fee) are required at booking in order to reserve your session time. The remaining balance ($75) is due at/before the session takes place.

Mini sessions are open to babies, children, maternity, and families! This is the only time of year that I photograph family sessions :) I will bring along a few props (quilt/blanket, rustic chair, vintage baby bed, etc.) - I do have wardrobe options for babies (some toddler & girls stuff too) and maternity. Just ask if you'd like to see whats available!

PLEASE NOTE: In order to ensure we have a beautiful spot for photos, the location will be determined the day prior (which is the day I will get back to Ohio) so that I can location scout. That said, the location will be somewhere in the Dayton area :) If it rains, we will reschedule for the following day (Sunday) and if that day is still yucky, we will postpone to the following weekend. Hopefully mother nature cooperates and that won't be an issue!

Lexington KY Newborn Photographer Studio.jpg

Well, hello there! It's been quite a while :)

In case you didn't know already, Sweet Bloom Photography has, unfortunately, moved away from Ohio due to my husbands job. We are now in Lexington, KY! 

Now, I had big plans of taking some time away from photography while in Lexington, however, I've found that I don't do well with "time off" ;) I miss snuggling newborns and hearing those chubby baby laughs way too much! SO, I've decided to reopen with an all new in-home studio - The plan is to open in early 2018 and I am pumped!

The new in-home studio is located in Hamburg/right off I-75 and will be in our walkout basement - all with its own entrance, bathroom, etc. There will be 2 shooting areas, a prop room, and a sitting area with TV/Netflix for parents and plenty of toys for little brothers & sisters that might be tagging along. It will be cozy but cute :) I plan to get started on setting everything up within the coming weeks and will definitely share updates along the way. You can check those out on our Facebook and Instagram.

Come Spring/warmer weather, I will also be offering on-location sessions for baby and maternity. For now, we are only booking very limited newborn and baby sessions in-studio for January through April.

If you are in/near Lexington and are interested in booking a session with us, you can view information & pricing for newborn sessions here and baby sessions here
