{Sponsor Spotlight} Bloom Photography Forum & Workshops!

Share To:

We are so excited to introduce you to our sponsor, Bloom! Bloom Workshops and The Bloom Forum were both founded and are run by Kristy Lane and Brenda Acuncius. We have worked with Kristy from F8 Kids photography, in the past! We created our Firetruck Collection for her son’s birthday and designed a custom damask invitation for her daughter’s party! She is such a talented photographer and we are thrilled about this fabulous endeavor she is part of!
Bloom Workshops are held both online and in person. Photographers of all different levels can benefit from the workshops, whether it is to start from the beginning or simply refresh and get inspired again! To read more about Bloom Workshops, you can visit the Everything Bloom blog.  The Bloom Forum was formed as a place for photographers to “hang out” online and talk about their passion together. It has evolved into such a warm and giving community of those who truly want to learn and help others as well.  There are contests, tutorials and mini workshops (taught by incredibly talented and well-respected photographers) on the forum. A one year subscription is $60. To read about other options and how to join, visit The Bloom Forum.
The ladies of Bloom recently hosted a fantastic Face 2 Face workshop in Dallas. Kristy had me create a banner for the event, which said Welcome Bloomies! {so cute!}

  1. how awesome!! <3 Bloom and <3 TomKat- a perfect match!! 😉

  2. Great feature! Proud to be a member of Bloom, Bren and Kristy are so great!!! I was at the workshop and your banner was perfect, envy your talent!!!

  3. I love all of your work and love party planning! I have been following your blog for a while, since before I got interested in photography. Bloom has become my online photography home, and I was so excited when I attended the face2face workshop and found out that you made the banner. It is like finding out two of your favorite friends are related or something. I know it is a cheesy metaphor, but I love when things like that happen!
