Baby girl Hayden Newborn Pictures – Mansfield CT Baby Photography

Karyn and Peter were excited to start growing their family, and welcomed their precious baby girl Hayden. Their love story started when they met at the University of Connecticut where they both attended for their post secondary studies and started dating shortly after. Fast forward to today, they are parents to their sweet baby girl Hayden who is so darling and their fur baby Leo who is a sweet yellow lab. Peter is a pilot for the United States Air Force and Karyn is a social worker at a high school and coaches’ soccer. They both love playing, coaching and watching all kinds of sports; from soccer, to hockey, baseball (Red Sox fans), football (Patriots fans) and golf. Now that they are parents to sweet little Hayden, I’m sure they love all the baby snuggles and raising their sweet baby girl.

Just About Baby White Ivory Neutral Newborn Pictures with Holiday Red – Newborn Photography CT

White and Ivory colors are so prefect for the simplicity of newborn photography. When the focus is just on baby, the light and all-white setups bring a kind of simple sweetness to a baby’s newborn pictures that will just make your heart swoon looking at the newness of the brand-new baby. Mom asked for white and ivory colours for majority of the session keeping the theme simple and neutral, but also wanted to incorporate a holiday setup with a pop of red color for the session styling – and we did exactly that. Hayden is such a gorgeous baby girl and I adored capturing her newborn pictures.

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 that when anyone looks at a photo I have taken they see and know this.

When you are looking to book your studio newborn session, it is recommended to secure your newborn session preferably before baby arrives to ensure an opening for when your little one does make their appearance. Ideally, it is best to book when you are in your second trimester. When you book your newborn session, you may also consider adding on a maternity session to your newborn booking and we can capture beautiful serene maternity pictures to remember your pregnancy by, or you may consider capturing those fresh newborn moments after birth with a Fresh48 Hospital Session.
