Abigail Posed Newborn Pics – Suffield CT Newborn Photography

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you are going to stay a while and browse around the blog. I am a professional portrait photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos but I also adore being a part of these special moments in my client’s lives. I hope you enjoy this recent post of a precious baby girl who came to see me from West Suffield CT for her newborn session. Here is a little peek into Abigail’s newborn photography session in my studio.

Abigail Posed Newborn Pics – Suffield CT Newborn Photography

Kate and Dan were expecting their second baby girl and didn’t want to miss capturing newborn pictures. An important moment to cherish for their soon-to-be family of four, Dad contacted me to reserve his wife’s due date with a newborn session while they awaited the arrival of precious Abigail Jean. At their session, big sister Mackenzie was so excited to pose and capture newborn moments with her new baby sister. You could tell just how much she loves her baby sister already and how much she loves being a big sister. There is something so sweet and special with new siblings and I love capturing these sibling moments for my clients.

A big part of being a newborn and family photographer is allowing me into your lives for the short time we are together capturing your memories and getting to know you and your family a little bit. Getting to know this darling family, they shared with me that Kate and Dan are both theatre professionals with Kate as a theatre educator and Dan working more on the technical side of running a theatre. They love vacationing, going on adventures together and spending time near the water. Mackenzie loves being creative whether doing arts and crafts, dancing or singing – she has high energy and just loves life.

Baby Girl Newborn Light Neutral Gray & Pink Colors – Newborn Photography Suffield CT

Mom and Dad had ideas for colors for Abigail’s newborn photo session. Being drawn to and loving a color palate of lighter colors with grays and soft pinks, all their session set ups were designed with a lighter feel to them, including their family poses. With Abigail’s baby nursery theme decorated as the classic tale of Peter Rabbit, they wanted to incorporate light and soft neutral colors. All the soft tones were so pretty and she looked so darling in all the girly headbands and feminine touches. She is just so adorable!

About Melissa Hartigan Photography

When you book a session with Melissa Hartigan Photography, I give you MY ALL, before, during and long after your session has come and gone. I am NOT the photographer that starts a stop watch at the beginning of your session. I am NOT the photographer that will ever rush. I am NOT the photographer that will give up when I know how important a certain capture is to a client.

I AM the photographer that wants to capture your newborn, child, senior teenager or family as they are the day of your session. I love my job. Capturing moments and freezing memories in time to cherish always. It truly makes my heart full and so happy. I hope when anyone looks at an image I have taken they see and know this.

My goal is to give my clients beautiful photographs they can cherish forever, and an experience to remember why they chose custom photography with an experienced and professionally trained newborn photographer to capture their newborns photo memories. I would love the opportunity to capture your memories with a maternity session, fresh 48 hospital photos, a studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into Abigail’s Newborn Session. Get in touch with me for booking information and availability for your baby’s upcoming due date! It is never too early to book your newborn session; I would love to be your newborn photographer! Please email me via the contact tab.
