Baby Ethan & Family Newborn Session – Durham CT Newborn Photographer

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – Durham CT Newborn Photographer and browsing around my recent blog post of this newborn baby boy. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a CT Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children 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 new family of six.  Here is a little peek into Ethan’s Classic Newborn Session.

Baby Ethan & Family Newborn Session – Durham CT Newborn Photographer

Meeting Ethan and seeing his family again for his newborn photo session was a simple pleasure that I was l looking forward to. Two and a half years ago, I photographed Nicholas, Ashley and Steve’s youngest child’s One Year Milestone session. Knowing the importance of reserving your due date early, Ashley had contacted me back in the spring for her new baby’s newborn session and booked the Classic Newborn Session option even though their baby wasn’t due until the fall. This ensured a spot in my schedule for Ethan’s newborn session to capture all his newness and them as a family. Ethan was such a good baby and I couldn’t help but give all the professional newborn photographer cuddles that I could give while I was posing him and photographing his handsomeness.

Family full of Love – Newborn Photography Durham CT

Ashley and Steve have a house full of children and a whole lot of love between the six of them. Handsome little Ethan is the perfect addition for their family. With big brothers Andrew, Jacob and Nicolas to grow up with, learn from and grow that brotherly sibling bond with, Ethan is in good hands as the new baby of the family.

The boys love all things that have to do with trains, so they always have the commonality to spend time together and play together. Baseball is a common love in their family with the Red Sox being their favorite team to cheer on and support. They are such a lovely family, and it’s always a pleasure to see them again.

Neutral Newborn Colors with Touch of Blue – Newborn Photography CT

Ethan’s mom wanted neutral colors selected with touches of blue throughout the setups. Ethan looked dapper in all the neutral colors selected and really stole the show when I was posing him. The touches of blue are so complimentary and Ethan is simply baby perfection!

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.

Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautifully curated newborn prop collection and wardrobe to style each session and 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 and my Baby Milestone Gallery. For Ethan’s Classic 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.

About Melissa Hartigan Photography

When you book a session with Melissa Hartigan Photography, I give you MY ALL, before, during and long after your session has come and gone. I am NOT the photographer that starts a stop watch at the beginning of your session. I am NOT the photographer that will ever rush. I am NOT the photographer that will give up when I know how important a certain capture is to a client.

I AM the photographer that wants to capture your newborn, child, senior teenager or family as they are the day of your session. I love my job. Capturing moments and freezing memories in time to cherish always. It truly makes my heart full and so happy. I hope when anyone looks at an image I have taken they see and know this.

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.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into Ethan’s Classic Newborn session in studio with his big brothers and mom and dad. Get in touch with me for booking information and availability! I would love to be your baby’s first photographer and capture your family portraits! Please email me via the contact tab.
