I had taken big sister Taylor's photos just the year before and was excited to photograph this family again! 

Unbeknownst to us, baby Tatum had a heart problem that made her very sick during her first couple of months of life and she went on to have open heart surgery when she was just over a month old! Tatum is doing great now and every time I look at these photos I'm reminded of how precious life can be and how lucky I was to be able to capture these images for her Mom & Dad. Can't wait to take more photos of this sweet family!

Tree farm holiday photo sessions 2017 | Frederick MD photographer | Gaver Farm http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/1/tree-farm-holiday-photo-sessions-2017-frederick-md-photographer-gaver-farm I love holiday season, I really do! I also love when holiday season is over and I can sit down and breathe knit again! 2017 was an incredible Fall and I got to meet so many families, new families and old! I'm so honored to see repeat clients and always excited when people come to me for the first time for photos! 

In November I decided to do my annual holiday mini-sessions at our local awesome tree farm, Gaver Farm. The family who run this farm are so wonderful and we are so lucky that they allow us photographers access to their farm! Of course, the day came and it was freeeeeezziinnngg and windy! BUT we managed to have a lot of fun and the kids and their families were absolute superstars that day. 

Thank you to all the families who came and took part! I hope to see you again next year!

The Johnsons | Family lifestyle video session http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/12/the-johnsons-family-lifestyle-video-session As part of my new offerings for 2018, I'm venturing into the world of lifestyle videography. I met this awesome family one December afternoon and we went on an adventure in downtown Frederick, capturing memories along the way. Sarah's father passed away earlier this year after an unexpected illness and she was so glad to be able to capture some happy memories of this holiday season. Thanks for hanging out with me guys!

Lukas's home water birth story | Frederick MD birth photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/10/lukass-home-water-birth-story-frederick-md-birth-photographer Yesterday was Birth photography Day! 9/10/17. In most countries (not the US!), day is written before the month, hence the 9 months / 10 centimeters date! In honor of our celebration of birth photography, I wanted to share my most recent birth story, the story of Lukas. 

Daniela got in touch with me months ago to ask about my birth photography services. When we finally managed to meet up to discuss me being present at her third baby's birth, we realized that she had hired my most favorite midwifery group and doulas who I know! Her awesome birth team came together completely by accident and was so perfect! I was super excited to be invited to capture her birth story.

Fast forward to early September. Daniela's previous two babies had both been born early and we all eagerly anticipated the early arrival of baby number 3. He had other ideas... 38 weeks came and went, 39 weeks came and went, and 40 weeks came.... and two hours later, I finally got a text, followed by a phone call...

At 2am I got up and made packed lunches for my boys for school that day, I got dressed, I made sure I had all my bags packed, and when there was no response to that final text, I got in my car and headed to Daniela's house!

Here is the story of Lukas's birth.

Outdoor family maternity session | Frederick MD Maternity Photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/9/outdoor-family-maternity-session-frederick-md-maternity-photographer When clients book me for birth photography, I love to offer them a complimentary 'mini' maternity session. This is just a quick opportunity to capture their beautiful bumps before the baby decides to come earthside. I got to meet up with this family in the late summer as they awaited their new baby boy. What a joy it was to capture some lasting images for them as their family got ready to move four to five! This baby boy is very much loved already!

Grace, one year birthday Watch Me Grow session | Frederick MD baby photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/9/grace-one-year-birthday-watch-me-grow-session-frederick-md-baby-photographer Oh baby Grace! I first met Grace as a tiny newborn at my studio in Frederick MD. Her parents signed up for the Watch Me Grow package that I offer and so I had the joy of capturing this sweet baby girl as she grew during her first year. It always amazes me when the birthday session swings around. Time really does fly so fast! What a pleasure it was to meet this family over the past year!

From newborn:

To sitting:

To one year old!

Late summer maternity session outdoors | Frederick MD maternity photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/9/late-summer-maternity-session-outdoors-frederick-md-maternity-photographer How lucky I am to meet these amazing families as they prepare to welcome their new babies into the world! This couple got in touch with me months ago and it was so great to finally meet them as they prepare to bring their baby earthside in the next few short weeks. I love to capture the love and excitement of maternity sessions. This was one extra special as their dog Murphy is graduating to 'big brother' status! I loved that he was such an integral part of their maternity shoot. Such love, amazing family, can't wait to meet this special little person one day soon!

Late summer outdoor maternity photo session | Frederick MD Maternity Photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/9/late-summer-outdoor-maternity-photo-session-frederick-md-maternity-photographer The rain seemed to be trying to make it impossible for this outdoor summer maternity session but we managed to avoid it for one beautiful evening! I loved taking photos of this awesome couple excitedly waiting for their first baby girl! And lucky me, they signed up for a Watch Me Grow package so I get to photograph their sweet baby girl as a newborn, and again at 6 months and then again for her birthday session! Let's not wish away the year though, and focus on how amazing this mama looked for her maternity session!

Baby Abigail newborn studio session | Frederick MD newborn photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/8/baby-abigail-newborn-studio-session-frederick-md-newborn-photographer It was such an amazing honor to take photos for baby Abigail, baby girl number three for this family! I've been taking their photos for a few years now, and love watching their family as it grows! It seems like only yesterday that big sister Elizabeth was the newborn in my studio! Abigail rocked her session, sleeping so soundly for her family photos and then decided to be wide awake for the last few shots! This baby girl already has her own mind, watch out mom and dad! Here are some of my favorites from Abigail's newborn studio session...

What a gorgeous time of year for late sunsets and perfect lighting. I was so happy to meet up with this beautiful couple at one of the Frederick Monocacy battlefield sites earlier this month. First babies are so super-exciting and I'm always so happy when couples realize how important it is to document this time with photos! Here are some of my favorites from this session!

Jamie, baby boy newborn session | Frederick MD newborn photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/7/jamie-baby-boy-newborn-session-frederick-md-newborn-photographer I first got to meet Jamie's parents for a Spring maternity session earlier this year. What a beautiful day it was! I was so excited to see them again and meet baby Jamie for the first time for his newborn photos! Jamie and his mom and dad came to my studio in Frederick MD for his first photo shoot. It was lovely to see them again and hear all about his birth! Jamie rocked his session, sleepy little guy. His mom brought a special hat from one of her students for baby Jamie to wear. I wonder if you can guess which one it is... :)

Here are some of my favorites from Jamie's newborn photo session!

Dominic newborn session | Frederick MD newborn photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/7/dominic-newborn-session-frederick-md-newborn-photographer I was very excited to meet Dominic after doing maternity photos for his family just a few short weeks ago! Dominic came to my studio in Frederick MD for his newborn photography session when he was less than two weeks old! What a little sweetie he was! He slept like a dream for the first half of his session, and once he was awake, he was just happy to gaze all around before we wrapped up the session. I don't mind if babies don't sleep for their whole photo session! Sometimes it's nice to get a different glimpse of the little people. Here are some of my favorite photos from Dominic's first baby photo shoot!

Samuel newborn studio session | Frederick MD newborn photographer http://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/7/samuel-newborn-studio-session-frederick-md-newborn-photographer Some baby newborn photo sessions are super special for a variety of reasons. Sam's session was one of them because his mommy and daddy took my Birthworks Childbirth Education class just a few weeks before this little guy decided to enter the world AND I got to take their maternity photos! Having seen and got to know this couple over a few weeks of class, I couldn't wait to see them again and meet the beautiful boy who had been in his mama's belly all that time! 

Samuel and his mom & dad came to my newborn studio in Frederick MD for their newborn photos when he was just a couple of weeks old. They brought some special items for his session - a (not scary, honest) clown and shark, and a beautiful handmade blanket. I love incorporating special items into newborn photos! I know how much these things mean to the parents and they always choose them as part of their final collection. 

Here are some of my favorites from Samuel's first photo shoot!

Daniel Junior came to my studio in Frederick MD for his first photo shoot and he did great! This little guy slept for almost his whole session and let us play around with some of his daddy's work gear. I love when people bring meaningful props to their shoot and this family really wanted to capture daddy's important police work in their newborn photos. This boy was the smiliest little thing and had the longest legs! I had the best time! Here are some of my favorites from their shoot...
