Inspired by the excitement of new growth, Bloom Creative Co. is founded with a love for anticipating the moment and a promise to keep going.



Everyone has a story. Whether it is the evolution of a brand from an idea to reality or an individual's journey through life - a captivating storyline threads through it waiting to be told. 

With dual degrees in Marketing and Design, Bloom Creative Co. founder, Kaylene Thompson, saw a chance to marry art and science to help brands and individuals breath life to their stories.

Every project, whether it is a design solution or a photo shoot, begins by gaining a complete understanding of the story to be told. Just as each story is unique, the approach taken for each project is as well. The result is a highly personalized outcome guaranteed to leave you smiling. 

We give more. You can expect more. 




Days outside in the sunshine. Flower gardens ready for discovery. Thanks to the unwavering love of Kaylene's parents, her childhood was an indelible daydream. Fast forward 10 years and her world would be rocked by her mother's crushing encounter with breast cancer. After a 5 year fight to keep it in submission, her mother was taken from this world far too early. Leaving behind a legacy of unyielding determination, Kaylene found herself spreading her mother's mantra to "keep going" during a commencement speech from Design school. 

Listen to it here.

Staring out at the crowd she realized this too was her mother's work. She had found her calling and Bloom Creative Co. came into being shortly after.

Just as Kaylene's parents delivered opportunities for smile throughout her life, Kaylene is determined to do the same for every client of Bloom Creative Co. as a lasting tribute to her mother.


You would like Kaylene. She fell in love with photography while processing her own film in a darkroom and ironically this was during the same time she learned to become a magician on the computer. She giggles often and silently hums music to animate her life. She is night owl (though her young children really put the damper on this). She has a soft spot for animals, practices Vegetarianism and always carries candy. She is meticulous, focused and loyal. She loves happy tears on a wedding day and the clinging leg syndrome plaguing most young children on a photoshoot. She is obsessed with light and adores the famous "golden hour." She thinks life is short and the journey should be savored.

She lives in Chanhassen, Minnesota with her husband (Phil), daughter (Arabelle), son (Hayes), cat (Myles) and dog (Otis). She still considers Colorado and California "home" having been lucky enough to spend a few chapters of her life there and adores return visits. 


You will trust Kaylene. She asks questions and approaches every challenge with tenacity. She immerses herself in the details and emerges with solutions solidly grounded by fact. She has an addiction to design books and frequently references this extensive collection for inspiration. She keeps a journal bedside to document 2am epiphany's and more than once had a breakthrough idea in the shower. She is a natural leader and remembers an appeal to emotions trumps all. She becomes personally invested in the project's success and quickly liked by clients. She believes in the power of design to influence and applies a blend of art & science to every solution developed.
