"Lindsey Welch has the amazing ability to capture kids for being who they are, kids. She is extremely personable and immediately makes you feel comfortable during any photo shoot. Lindsey captured my energetic one year old beautifully, even when he was full of cake. I can not describe just how much I loved not just the photos but the photo shoot itself. Although I have used other photographers and even portrait places in the area, I will never trust anyone but Lindsey Welch to capture our special memories."

"Lindsey Welch is a personable and professional photographer. She is able to capture the best moments that only a talented and gifted person like Lindsey could do. We have not worked with many photographers, we enjoy the ease and creativity of Lindsey's style. She always goes above and beyond. You will never be disappointed, her photos move me to tears when I look at the beautiful moments she is able to capture.... not just of my family, but of the volumes of families she photographs."

~ J Kominski (Frederick, MD)


"Lindsey captures a moment in time and I love every photo she has ever taken of us. She is also just about the only photographer who makes my 3 year old so at ease he smiles and keeps his eyes open which no matter how hard I try I can't accomplish. I will cherish our newborn shots forever."

~ Lisa Irvine (Frederick, MD)


"Lindsey captured the first two weeks of my daughter's life, in all of it's beautiful, raw, honest moments. She was very professional, and kept up with the craziness that is a large family, and caught in all on camera in a candid and special way. We look forward to having more family moments captured through her camera and her creative eye."

~ Antonette Vasseur (Brunswick, MD)


"Lindsey was kind enough to come out to my house, as my baby girl has a disease which makes travel difficult. Not only is Lindsey a fabulous photographer, but she is also professional, compassionate, and kind. I wasn't sure how the photos would turn out, since nothing was posed and we just did what we normally do. I received the pictures, and I was amazed at what Lindsey was able to capture. Tears of joy! Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures of my family! I can't wait to display them around the house.

~ Monica Doughty (Baltimore, MD)

“Lindsey Welch takes fantastic photographs and her ability to capture the expressions and character of children is really special. Lindsey was extremely easy to work with - the photo shoot was laid back, lots of fun and the results were great gifts for all of our extended family.

~ Matt Bannister (Frederick, MD)


"Lindsey saved us from our previous photographer who flaked on us. She took amazing, perfect pictures of our son and was very patient with him being a crazy mobile 9 month old! The pictures she took are by far my favorite pictures of him. She is definitely worth it and we will be using her for pictures from now on :)" 

~ Carin Costilla (Frederick, MD)

"Lindsey took pictures of me and my son when Reuben was 6 months old. I am normally uneasy in front of the camera and this has proved a problem for photographers in the past, but Lindsey is a very competent, relaxed and positive woman, and she made me feel good. She captures beautiful moments, and her pictures are full of love. I wish I had such great photos from when the boy was tiny, and I will definitely ask Lindsey to photograph my family time and again as we grow."

~ Hannah Boon (Abingdon, UK)


"We love having Lindsey take our sons' photo she captures him in his element and gets these shots that make us smile. Her ability to use natural light, indoors or out, and to catch him in completely candid poses with the biggest smiles is amazing. I love every picture she has ever taken of him!"

~ Lisa Irvine (Frederick, MD)


“I was so pleased with the pictures Lindsey took of my son, Brandan. In addition to being art quality, Lindsey's pictures truly captured my baby's personality! What a treasure to look back on when he's all grown up!”

~ Jennefer Price (New Market, MD)
