Alex’s Cherished Newborn Session – Newborn Photography in Connecticut

Hi there! Thanks for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography and browsing my blog. For those who are visiting for the first time, I specialize in newborn photography in Connecticut and have a beautiful photography studio that is located in Coventry, CT. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish forever of their new baby and as a family. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family.  Here is a little peek into Alex’s Newborn session.

Alex’s Cherished Newborn Session – Newborn Photography in Connecticut

Meet Baby Alex, Older Brother Charlie, Mom Lara, and Dad Joe. This family is super sweet, and I adored photographing them for their second baby boy’s newborn session. As a family, they love taking fun trips to the aquarium, the beach and visiting the zoo, trying new restaurants and going to the Berkshires. As parents, Lara and Joe loved watching Charlie experience new things, and now as parents of two, they’ll love watching both of their children experience life together as siblings, and as a family too.

Lara and Joe booked the Cherished Newborn Session back in February which was ahead of their baby’s due date, which was perfecting for booking. Planning ahead and booking your newborn session to get in on my calendar is highly recommended.

Older brother Charlie was pretty excited to be getting a baby brother, that he could play with and grow that brotherly bond with. These two being so close in age are going to grow up and be best friends. After all, they say that brother’s make best friends for life.

Lara requested mostly neutrals for Alex’s newborn session with a touch of green. We focused on grays, creams and taupe colors and added a little touch of green here and there. I love photographing neutral colors with little touches of color because they work so well together and they give that added element of fun.
