Baby Brooke Posed on Saddle – Newborn Photography Canton CT

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer and browsing around my blog. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a Connecticut Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children, senior and family photography. 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 from Canon in Hartford County.  Here is a little peek into Brooke’s Newborn session.

Baby Brooke Posed on Saddle – Newborn Photography Canton CT

New parents Meagan and Alan brought their days old sweet newborn baby girl Brooke into the studio for her Newborn Session. Brooke not only stole my heart during her session with how little and precious she was, but she was also a dream baby for me during her session and I was able to capture so many memorable images for mom and dad to treasure of their little girl forever.

One specific capture that mom requested was to capture Brooke posed on her horse’s saddle. I love to artistically capture these images especially when they are meaningful for my beloved clients. These artistically posed and captured images are called ‘composites’ and they are comprised of digitally merging several images together to create the final look of one specially posed image. It may look like baby was posed alone on the saddle prop, but mom and dads’ hands were on their baby at all times.

Getting to know mom and dad a little bit before and during their newborn session for their baby girl, I learned that they both have fun, friendly personalities and they really showed them in their wedding photos. They really loved their funny wedding photos more over their more formal and serious photos. Together they love to travel and spend time being active outdoors, enjoying hiking and skiing. When they aren’t outdoors enjoying an activity, they love to spend time at home relaxing and watching The Office.

Baby Girl Newborn Pictures Pink & Cream Colors – Newborn Photography Canton

Mama and Dad wanted the girly colors for her baby girls’ newborn session so she selected a color palate of soft pink and cream colors together. It’s a feminine and classic color combination for a new baby girl and she looked darling in all the shades of pink that her parents picked out for her.

Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique studio 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, a 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 each session 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. For Brooke’s newborn session done in my Coventry, CT photography studio, I used outfits, hats, backdrops and props from some of my favorite newborn prop vendors: No. 2 Willow LaneLittle Bean CreationsRoses and RufflesRed Owl Photo Props and Pooks and Lulu.
