Family Portraits

Martha’s Vineyard Family Portrait Photographer

Since 2006, David Welch Photography has been creating lasting memories for families on Martha’s Vineyard. Each session is unique and carefully coordinated, taking place at a location of your choice. Our signature candid capture coupled with relaxed and casual groupings has made us the photographer of choice for hundreds of families.


For 10 years I have been creating lasting memories for families on Martha’s Vineyard and beyond. Here are some recent testimonials from past clients.


“We loved our family photographs!  We decided on State Beach right before sunset.  I strongly suggest completing the survey David sends prior to your session.  He really listens to all of the intricate details and it helps to eliminate wasted time during the session.  My teenager was very pleased with her solo photos.  David worked well with my 9 month old.  Having young children himself, David was understanding and very patient through her moods. I am looking forward to another session in the future.”

“We researched a few photographers in Martha’s Vineyard for our family vacation photo shoot and David Welch was by far the most reliable, reasonable, and talented. Not to mention, he’s a down to earth, sweet, family man. Our children loved shooting with him. What I loved the most was how accommodating he was and took the time to understand and meet our needs. We will definitely use him again!!”

“David was wonderful to work with and produced photos of our family that were better than we could have imagined. My husband and I and our two boys had so much fun taking the photos and enjoyed the whole experience. The photos are beautiful and David was extremely responsive and easy to work with. We love the still shots and the action shots of our whole family and our two sons. We will definitely work with him again!!”

“David did a fabulous job with our summer portrait session. He took many different shots at the beach and captured tons of great photos of our family! My daughter got her senior picture done at the same time and had many great choices to pick from. She was SUPER happy with her senior photo!!

I would highly recommend David Welch and plan on using him on our annual trip to MV!”

“David Welch photographed our family on Martha’s Vineyard during the summer of 2014. He has a way of combining professionalism and a friendly manner which allows camera shy people to relax and enjoy the photo shoot. Our family was very pleased with the results and made several of the pictures into holiday cards. We highly recommend David Welch!”

“Our family photo shoot with David was a wonderful experience, and the shots came out GREAT. He took both more formal group shots that we requested with the extended family as well as spontaneous fun shots of all of us and our kids. We were all thrilled with the quality of the photos. I was particularly impressed with how well he interacted  with our little kids and was able to keep them entertained and smiling. Great photos and memories. We will definitely do our next family photo shoot with him!”
