My last birth was in November and I spent 6 weeks enjoying the off-call life with two of my boys celebrating birthdays in December and my parents coming over for Christmas. Then just as we rang in the new year and new decade, I went back on call for this amazing family who are repeat clients! Baby Zyen was a firecracker baby, storming into the world on the morning of July 4th 2018 and now he and his brothers were about to be joined by baby brother number FIVE! This is one incredible boy mom for sure! Also, you can check Christine out on Instagram @motherofthezs!

Christine labored through the night, taking each contraction with such grace and happiness. I have seriously never been around such a happy Mom in labor! Her birth space is always so full of joy and excitement and she has the best midwife and student - Shanna and Sarah from Birthroot Midwifery! We all thought as morning dawned that this baby would wait until the boyZ had left for school before he made an appearance but he had other plans! Upon hearing the noise in the house, labor ramped up big time and this little guy came into the world just in time for his brothers to say a quick hello before they left for school! Perfect timing! 

Enough words, I wish I could share the whole album but here is a collection of a lot of my favorites from Zorin's incredible birth! 

and me!

Jamie's natural hospital birth | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2019/10/jamies-natural-hospital-birth-frederick-md-birth-photographer This birth was such an amazing experience for me as a birth photographer. A completely natural birth in a hospital setting isn't a common event unless you have an awesome OB and/or midwife team! Lucky for this family, mama is an OB and she chose to birth with the midwives who are part of her practice! She was left to labor alone in the tub with a wireless monitor and the whole birth was so intimate and beautiful. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this birth story. Mama welcomed her 4th baby boy into the world after just a couple of pushes! Welcome to the world Jamie, you are loved! 

You can check out this mama's maternity session (a complimentary session for all of my birth clients!) here :)

Zyen's home water birth | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2019/3/zyens-home-water-birth-frederick-md-birth-photographer I was so excited to be hired to photograph the birth of this family's 4th baby boy last year and even more excited when he decided to be a true firecracker and rolled into this world bright and early on July 4th! What a way to start the 4th of July celebrations! This mama smiled her way through labor and quietly worked her way to full dilation in the peace of the middle of the night, while her other boys slept. Supported by her husband and Mom, along with the amazing midwife Shanna Mastrangelo of Birthroot Midwifery and her team.  Safe to say the kids sensed change was in the air and came trickling into the room soon after Zyen was born! 

What a beautiful, empowering birth! Here are some of my favorites from that magical day!

Baby boy studio newborn session | Dane | Frederick MD newborn photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2019/3/baby-boy-studio-newborn-session-dane-frederick-md-newborn-photographer I appreciate word-of-mouth referrals so much and I love the families that I meet who were recommended to come to me! It means that people love my work and I can spread the love and joy of newborn photography to even more families! This awesome new family unit came to see me last month for Dane's newborn photos. I was so happy they came prepared for some family photos as well because I love to take photos of Moms and Dads. They think they look tired and less-than-perfect, but I think new parents exude beauty and the love for their babies just needs to be captured! Dane did great for his photo session in my in-home studio in Frederick MD! I'm so glad I got to meet Dane and his Mom & Dad and Grandma too! Here are some favorites from his session :)

Peter's incredible hospital birth story | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2019/3/peters-incredible-hospital-birth-story-frederick-md-birth-photographer A year before Peter's birth my parents were in town visiting and we took our annual trip to Chuck E Cheese! On our way out, a couple stopped me and this lovely woman asked me if I was Lindsey Welch and told me how much she loved my photography. My mum thought I was a mini-celebrity that day! Haha! Four or five months later, the same lovely woman got in touch to tell me that she was pregnant! And that she would love to have me take their birth photos! It was a happy happy day and I was so honored to get to know this amazing family and be part of their pregnancy and birth journey.

This mama was incredible to watch as she labored without drugs after being necessarily induced when baby's heart rate kept dropping. She worked so hard to bring Petey down and into this world and we were all so excited and happy to bear witness to such love, strength and beauty! 

Welcome to the world Peter! Your mamas love you so much! <3

Setting aside the cold weather, I love to take photos of pregnant women when the trees are bare of leaves and the focus of color and light is all on the mama. I was so excited to take maternity photos for this soon-to-be mama at the end of last month! These guys rocked their session in Baker Park in Frederick MD and the weather decided to play nice, which is always a bonus in winter :)

Wesley's home birth | Frederick MD birth videographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2019/1/wesleys-home-birth-frederick-md-birth-videographer For those who know me, birth photography is one of my most favorite sessions to photograph. I have been part of the birth world since my first son was born ten years ago! I first trained as a doula and then a childbirth educator and, more recently, as a birth assistant. I love birth. And I love to have the honor of witnessing mamas bring their babies into the world. Last year I added birth videography to the sessions I offer and I was lucky enough to capture birth on video for a few of my clients! 

Last summer I was lucky enough to attend the amazing home birth of sweet baby Wesley. This mama labored strong and hard, bringing her baby into the world so peacefully in the water. I was honored to capture that day for this awesome family, through images and video! Mom and dad got an epic 12 minute movie to keep forever, and you guys get to see the Cliff notes version :)

Women are so strong. Birth is beautiful.

After postponing this maternity session before Christmas because of rain, we met up early in January to capture Viviane's pregnancy before her sweet baby boy makes an appearance in a few short weeks!

Fall family photo sessions | Frederick MD family photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/11/fall-family-photo-sessions-frederick-md-family-photographer I love Fall and spending time with families old and new for my annual Fall mini-sessions here in Frederick MD! This year we spent an afternoon up at Gambrill State Park. The leaves were just starting to turn and the weather was perfect! How lucky I am to capture memories for all these families! I can't wait to do it all over again next year!

Bastian's home birth | Rainbow baby | Frederick MD Birth Photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/11/bastians-home-birth-rainbow-baby-frederick-md-birth-photographer The joy of being a birth photographer is never greater than when a friend tells you they are pregnant and that they'd like you to be there! After a long road, this family were going to meet their rainbow baby, and I was allowed to be there at their home birth in Frederick to capture it all with photography! From the sun coming up, to the sun going down again, from the love of a husband and their two children and doulas and midwives, this mama was surrounded with such a vibrant force of safety and protection, and she trusted her body to know what to do in labor and when to do it. What an honor to witness! Birth is truly beautiful, in all it's ups and downs and messes and tears and laughter! Welcome to the world baby Bastian. You are very loved by all.

Jenevieve lifestyle video session | newborn baby | Frederick MD newborn videographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/8/jenevieve-lifestyle-video-session-newborn-baby-frederick-md-newborn-videographer I was excited to be welcomed into Jenevieve's home to take this newborn video for her earlier this year! Little baby Jenevieve was only two weeks old when I went to their house to film their life with a new baby! Big brother and newly big sister were amazing and I was super happy with this video I put together for them. Videos help to capture how tiny those little babies are and are a great visual reminder of those first sweet moments in a baby's life! Enjoy!

I was approached by this family earlier in the year and was so happy that they chose me to be a part of their birth story. Baby Colin decided he was in no rush to come out and made his family wait an extra couple of weeks before he was ready to join them! This mama worked hard through the day and was so incredible to watch. Daddy was an amazing support and big brother helped as well! What an amazing home water birth! I hope you enjoy this birth video as much as I enjoyed making it! I added a few of the stills I took as well. Video sessions always include a few still photography images too!

Colin, born April 25th at 8.23pm. 10lb 13oz. 21.5".

Charlie's beautiful peaceful home water birth | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/4/charlies-beautiful-peaceful-home-water-birth-frederick-md-birth-photographer This family were super-patient and excited to welcome their second baby boy into the family late last year. Birthdays came and went, Christmas came and went, and one day, just as they realized they might be having a New Year baby (!), mama finally went into labor. What a beautiful home birth this was too! Surrounded by her husband, wonderful midwives and doula, this mama water birthed her 10lb 1oz baby into the world. Happy day!

Hospital birth photos | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/4/hospital-birth-photos-frederick-md-birth-photographer Birth. You never know what life is going to throw at you, and sometimes, it is nothing like you imagined it was going to be. But that doesn't mean it still wasn't transformational and amazing! Photos like these show you just how hard these mamas work to birth their babies, they capture the moments, the partner support, the boredom in the middle, the excitement. The storm before the baby storm arrives. Birth photography is such a joy to me and I'm so privileged to be able to capture these moments!

Baby Finn newborn studio session | Frederick MD newborn photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/3/baby-finn-newborn-studio-session-frederick-md-newborn-photographer Baby Finn was so impatient to come into this world that he decided to come a few weeks earlier than planned at 36 weeks! What a precious little person he was. I first met Finn's family when they brought big brother Asher to my studio in Frederick for his birthday photos. I was so excited to be able to take photos for his sweet little baby brother! Finn was a dream baby for his first photo session. He slept liked a baby ha! Here are some of my favorites from his session.

Super quick rainbow baby home birth | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/3/super-quick-rainbow-baby-home-birth-frederick-md-birth-photographer Sometimes babies come super fast! They don't want to wait for photographers or midwives... Sometimes they just want to come out and meet their family. This was the story of my own second baby too! He wasn't interested in a long labor and came quickly into the world one night. So when I was called early one morning and told that contractions had come on very strong from the outset, I got dressed, grabbed my gear and made my 45 minute journey to their home. Baby Jatniel was born about 10 minutes before I arrived!

Luckily I was still there to capture plenty of first moments for this family. Breastfeeding, big sister waking up and meeting her baby brother, weigh-in and cord cutting. There is so much more to birth photography than just the birth! This birth was extra special for this family, as Jatniel was a much-anticipated rainbow baby. His older brother Mateo did not make it to full gestation and was born sleeping. Rainbow babies bring so much peace and joy to the world <3

Here are some of my favorite moments from this story...

Rainbow baby outdoor maternity photos | Frederick MD Maternity Photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/3/rainbow-baby-outdoor-maternity-photos-frederick-md-maternity-photographer Rainbow babies are so special. I was so honored when this family approached me and asked for me to document their journey as they welcomed their rainbow baby into the world. Their second baby, a son, was born too early and was born sleeping. They were so excited to be pregnant with another boy, an honor to the son that they had lost and I was excited to be a part of their story!

Here are some of my favorites from their maternity session. Mama wanted some 'rainbow' additions, in memory of their first son, and I was happy to add that into some of the images :)

Jatniel's birth story can be found HERE! And his newborn photos HERE!

What a beautiful place to be raising kids! Here are some of my favorites from their session. And scroll to the end for a 'mini' video I took while filming! :)

Griffin's hospital birth with midwives | Frederick MD birth photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/3/griffins-hospital-birth-with-midwives-frederick-md-birth-photographer Griffin's birth was an amazing experience! I was lucky to capture some beautiful pregnancy images for this sweet couple a few weeks before her due date. These first time parents were so excited to meet their baby boy and kept their cool, even when their idea of how labor would start was cast aside by a late diagnosis of low fluids! This mama rocked her first birth experience, being induced and going from 5cm dilated to 10cm and pushing in 25 minutes! Thank goodness I live close to the hospital :)

This couple booked me for a January birth which meant it was bound to be cold for our outdoor mini session! Not only was it cold, but it had snowed and also snowed a little during our shoot! This couple were amazing and braved the elements to capture some awesome images to remember this baby bump forever :)

Only a few short weeks later, Griffin was welcomed into the world!

Winter outdoor maternity bump session 2017 | Frederick MD Maternity Photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/2/winter-outdoor-maternity-bump-session-2017-frederick-md-maternity-photographer Sometimes I long for the summer but then I remember the beauty of late Fall / early winter and I can't decide what season I miss most! There's something so lovely about the roaring fires and hibernation of winter, along with the rest that comes after the crazy Fall season, but after a while I long to be outside again with the amazing Frederick MD sunsets and warmth. I met this lovely couple late last year to capture some bump photos before they welcomed their new baby into the world. So much excitement in the air for these new parents! I love maternity sessions so much! Here are some favorites from their outdoor photo shoot in Frederick Maryland...

Baby girl Watch Me Grow newborn to birthday photo package | Frederick MD Photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/2/baby-girl-watch-me-grow-newborn-to-birthday-photo-package-frederick-md-photographer Oh baby Jeslyn! How quickly a year passes when you book a Watch Me Grow package with me. I first met Jeslyn when she was just a tiny baby and she slept so soundly for her newborn photos. Then we met for her 6 month sitter session and she wasn't very impressed with me at all! Thank goodness for bubbles! She was also less than impressed by the cake presented for her cake smash, haha! We still managed to get some beautiful photos to document Jeslyn's first year of life. Here is a snapshot of those images from her newborn, sitter and birthday sessions.

I have taken family photos for this wonderful couple for the last few years and I was so excited when they told me they were expecting another baby.

Oh my, what a spoilt little boy he is going to be :) We already had a Fall family session planned with the big sisters and so Michael had his newborn photos all to himself at my studio in Frederick MD.

Newborn baby girl studio photography | Frederick MD newborn photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2018/1/newborn-baby-girl-studio-photography-frederick-md-newborn-photographer I was so excited when baby Tatum's Mom contacted me in the last few weeks of her pregnancy to ask if I would take photos for their new baby when he/she decided to come along! 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!

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 https://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 https://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 https://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!

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:

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 https://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!

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...

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... :)

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 https://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!

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...

And now they are expecting their second baby girl! I'm so excited to see this family grow! We met at their home in Damascus for a family maternity session. It was a beautiful Spring evening for their photos and it was so much fun to capture their family, seeing all of their personalities shining through! Can't wait to meet this baby girl!

Mother Blessing | Frederick MD maternity photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/4/mother-blessing-frederick-md-maternity-photographer It is always an honor to attend a Mother Blessing. This ceremony is given to a pregnant woman during her third trimester and is a celebration of that woman and of her bringing new life into the world. It's like a baby shower for the mother! Every woman should have a Mother Blessing. A chance to share stories, recognize fears and ignite passion for the upcoming birth. So many wonderful things can emerge from the fires of a Mother Blessing and I am very blessed to be a part of the lives of these mamas.

Happy birthday baby girl, what a year you've had!

Late winter outdoor maternity session | Frederick MD maternity photographer https://www.lindseywelchphotography.com/blog/2017/3/late-winter-outdoor-maternity-session-frederick-md-maternity-photographer One of the best parts of being a Childbirth Educator as well as a photographer is that I get to photograph some of the pregnant couples who attend my classes! I love getting the opportunity to guide these families through the trials and tribulations and joy and excitement of pregnancy, birth and life with a newborn, plus it's an added bonus to be surrounded with tiny new souls :)

This couple attended my first class series of 2017 and I was super excited when they invited me to capture maternity photos for them as they await the birth of their baby. Dayna was 34 weeks pregnant for her maternity session and she looked amazing! It was a super cold early March evening but you would never know! Here are some of my favorites from Sam and Dayna's maternity images.

I got to meet up with baby Gabriel when he was just two weeks old for his newborn studio session in my home in Frederick MD. This little guy did great! He was so sleepy and perfect and we managed to get family shots, sibling shots and simple baby shots too. He's also the star of my upcoming promo video! Can't wait to share that with you in the next few weeks!

We always manage to get some awesome shots which captures their tiny personalities when they are still brand new and figuring out how to be in the world. Here are some favorites from Noah's newborn session!
