If you are a returning visitor stopping by to check out this weeks featured blog post, welcome back and thank you for visiting again. 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 Calvin’s Cherished Newborn session in the Melissa Hartigan Photography Studio.

Baby Calvin Goodnight Moon Newborn Session – Ellington CT Newborn Photography

Mom-to-be, Dina contacted me for her baby boy’s newborn photos this summer and several weeks later Dina and Brenton’s baby boy made his appearance earth side – on the same date as my oldest son’s birthday.

Dina and Brenton are an easy going, laid back-relaxed couple who enjoy going to live comedy shows and laughing the night away, music and concerts, going to the beach and anything Disney.  Dina is a graduate of University of Connecticut and as a huge UConn fan she loves attending men’s basketball games. Brent is an avid griller and has competed in 5 BBQ Competitions. They are a fun couple with a love for life, and now a love for the baby they have welcomed and become parents to.

Goodnight Moon Light Blue Newborn Photos – Newborn Photography in Ellington CT

Dina had a vision in mind for her son’s newborn photos and wanted light blue colors to capture her sweet new son. She had a special request for props used during Calvin’s newborn session, and one of them was the moon prop that my husband custom hand made for me. Mom also wanted to capture images of her baby boy on the bed and in one of my bowl props too. Calvin looked so handsome in all the light blue colors and tones that I used for his baby pictures and I absolutely adore how sweet he looks posed and sleeping peacefully on the moon prop.
