Toddler Toes | Wayzata Children’s Photographer

15 month old H came into Bloom Portraits for updated toddler portraits. Since the weather is gorgeous this time of year and H is a pro at walking, we thought it would be a great idea to do an outdoor “Town and Country” session.

H was a little sweetheart from the moment he arrived at the studio to prepare for his session. Once we got to know each other a bit and exchanged some smiles, we headed outside to the Wayzata train depot to get started.

H loved finding little rocks and sticks to check out and show us. At 15 months, every detail in nature is fascinating!

I had a blast getting to know H and to my surprise, just before he left, he gave me a great, big hug! What a sweetie!

When was the last time you got updated photos of your sweet, little man or lady? Come on in to Bloom Portraits for a low stress session at a great price and let us have fun capturing precious memories for you.

Bloom Wayzata Grand Opening | Wayzata Children’s Photography

Bloom Wayzata has officially blossomed!

Colorado-based Bloom Portraits opened its first Minnesota studio last week.

Located on Barry Ave S. in downtown Wayzata, Bloom provides a fresh look to children’s photography for an affordable price. The grand opening included a ribbon cutting with the Wayzata Chamber of Commerce and a piñata smash for the kids.

Mound native and Bloom owner, David Schmidt, received his Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico. In 2005 he moved to Denver’s Highland neighborhood and started 211 Photography.

In 2009, David saw the need to give children’s portraits a fresh feel and opened Bloom’s flagship studio in Denver. Now he’s bringing the fresh feel back to Minnesota.

Call (952) 473-3838 today to schedule a fun, summer photo shoot in Bloom’s  new Wayzata studio or ask us about our affordable outdoor “Town and Country” option.








Bloom is Blooming | Denver and Wayzata Children’s Photographer

Bloom is blooming and next Thursday, June 7, 2012 is the official piñata breaking ceremony!

In case you haven’t heard the news, David Schmidt, owner of 211 Photography and Bloom Portraits, will be opening a Bloom Portraits in Wayzata, Minnesota! We are all very excited for this opportunity! David chose Wayzata because he is originally from MN and has a great support system there. Staff has been hired for the Wayzata location, but David will be traveling back and forth between the two locations until Bloom Wayzata gets off the ground.

David has always wanted the Bloom Portraits brand to be a high quality, boutique-like, children’s photography chain, and Wayzata is the first step towards making that happen.

Keep your eyes and ears out for more growth with Bloom Portraits!

The Chavez twins have really developed into their own unique personalities since we last saw them at their newborn shoot. We look forward to continuing to watch them grow in the months to come.

Siblings at Bloom | Denver Children’s Photographer

C and P were so much fun to photograph at Bloom Portraits! Photographing siblings can be difficult. They usually enjoy being photographed together, but when it’s time for individual photos, things can become a struggle. Kids usually love being the center of attention, and when one sibling is getting more attention than the other, they take notice.

It’s perfectly normal to have power struggles between kids in photo shoot, so I was plesantly surprised when big brother C was such a big help in getting little sister P to smile! Big brother C was my little helper during P’s individual photos. It didn’t matter how silly mom and I were, P would only smile for C. C was a great helper with making his sister smile and didn’t get bothered that he was not the center of attention. What a great relationship these two have!

Sisters at Bloom | Denver Children’s Photographer

Miss Olivia and Miss Alex came in for a photo shoot at Bloom Portraits. Before heading into the studio, I had a chance to sit down and talk with Miss Olivia and Miss Alex. Miss Alex was much more outspoken, and Miss Olivia was the more reserved sister. This tends to be a good combination when it comes to siblings because they aren’t always fighting for attention.

It’s funny what happens when kids get in front of a camera. When we got into the studio, it was as if their personalities changed; Miss Olivia was all smiles and Miss Alex needed a moment to take in the situation. We had a great time in the studio! Next time we will have to bring in the fan for these super models!

6 Month Photos at Bloom Portraits | Denver Baby Photographer

E was all smiles from the second she walked in the door! Well, I guess I should not say “walk” as much as “carried”, but she was ready. Before starting a baby photo shoot, I like to get an idea of how strong the baby is. This way I can get a better idea of which furniture to use and what poses will work best. E’s mom and I chatted for a minute, then we went to the studio.

E started off great, sitting just like I posed her; then she decided to show off a bit and prove to me how strong she was. 6 month old E decided she wanted to stand and that is just what she did! I could tell she was strong, but I must admit, I was a bit surprised when she almost started walking. I will not be surprised if E walks in all on her own next time I see her! Way to go E!
