For the newcomers to my blog, I would love to introduce myself to you. I am a wife and a mother to five children and I found my passion and niche with photography and working with newborns. I specialize in newborn photography throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and I have a beautiful photography studio that is located in Coventry, CT.  As a professional photographer, I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish of their new baby and family forever. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family.  Here is a peek into Anthony’s Cherished Newborn session in the Melissa Hartigan Photography Studio.

Anthony Cherished Newborn Session – New Milford CT Newborn Photography

Mom-to-be, Aubree found me on google searching for Connecticut newborn photographers and contacted me for her baby boy’s newborn photos this past winter and several weeks later Aubree and Anthony’s baby made his appearance earth side, they welcomed a baby boy and named him after Dad. Mom originally booked the Treasured Newborn Session for Anthony’s newborn pictures. After seeing their proofing gallery full of beautiful images of their handsome baby boy, they immediately upgraded to the Cherished Newborn Session.

Anthony was a perfect baby for his session, he slept nearly the whole time and I was able to pose him in so many adorable newborn photography poses that mom and dad adored. They followed the preparation guide exactly as outlined and even though they traveled from over an hour and a half away for Anthony’s newborn session, just as so many of my clients do, the session was a success and Anthony was pure perfection to pose and photograph.

As with each of my clients, I love connecting with and getting to know them and Aubree shared with me a little about them. She is a veterinarian and is all about caring for animals. They have a wonderful dog named Frankie who was a part of their wedding and their wedding photos, Anthony is pretty simple and a little more on the quiet side, whereas Aubree tends to be the more lavish one, which is the perfect kind of balance. They have a love for life, and now they have immense love for their baby boy they have welcomed into their arms and become parents to.

Aubree had a vision in mind for her son’s newborn photos and wanted blue, gray, cream and tan colors incorporated into the to capture her sweet new son. Anthony looked so handsome in all the blue colors and tones that I used for his baby pictures and I absolutely adore how sweet he looks posed and sleeping peacefully.

As a newborn photographer in New Milford CT that is driven to provide a custom newborn portrait experience, I love offering clients a variety of color and prop choices for their newborn sessions at my studio. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, the colors in your homes, and the colors and props that are your favorites is only one piece of the whole newborn photography experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography that new parents absolutely love being a part of; and I am happy to offer that to all of my clients.
