I’m a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography.

Here is a little peek into her custom newborn photography session.

Ava Treasured Baby – Newborn Photography South Windsor CT

Introducing beautiful baby Ava. When Kate and Dwayne were expecting their baby girl, they wanted to capture their pregnancy with a maternity session as well as a newborn session and document those precious memories and beloved newborn poses. They booked the Treasured Newborn Session for baby Ava’s newborn pictures. Not wanting to miss having all the precious poses as keepsakes they added on additional images as well. Mama wanted to have some images converted to black and white, and specifically requested a more dramatic black and white effect. I envisioned capturing mama, dad and baby Ava against a white backdrop and creating a more dramatic black and white convert to keep the focus on the three of them.

Apart from snuggling and loving their precious new baby girl, they enjoy visiting the beach together as a family. They are huge Steelers fan as well. Dwayne loves soccer and Kate loves ballet. They are a very active family and have a whole lot of love between them.

Baby Girl Newborn Photos Cream & White Colors – Newborn Photography South Windsor CT

Mama chose a beautiful and yet simple color palate of whites and creams for Ava’s newborn pictures. I absolutely adore the simple and classic color theme and keeping the focus on your new baby. Ava is absolutely so precious in all the adorable newborn poses I captured her in during her photoshoot. Mama and dad are so lucky to have another beautiful baby girl to love.

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photoshoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

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, studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.

Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautifully curated newborn prop collection and wardrobe to style and dress each newborn baby with. If you’re looking for some newborn props or color ideas for your upcoming newborn or baby milestone sessions with me, please check out my Newborn Gallery.
