Baby Girl Marilyn Elena – CT Newborn Photographer

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post of this baby girl and browse around the blog. I am a professional Connecticut newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos but I also adore being a part of these special moments in my client’s lives. I hope you enjoy this recent blog post of beautiful baby Marilyn Elena. Here is a little peek into her custom newborn photography session at my studio.

Baby Girl Marilyn Elena – CT Newborn Photographer

From the sparks that were flying the night they met and danced the night away in 2008, to their wedding in 2015, and now to their growing family with their first baby, Bienvenida and Cris have a beautiful life together.  They are a laid back couple who love to travel, are always up for an adventure and they enjoy their time with family and friends.  Besides their love, the most beautiful moment in their lives was the day they became parents to beautiful Marilyn Elena.

Favorite Connecticut Newborn Photographer – Newborn Photography CT

When Bienvenida and Cris found out they were expecting a baby, the first thing that she did was get in touch with me to book her baby girl’s newborn photos. It’s no surprise that she booked her newborn session with me, since she has been a devoted Melissa Hartigan Photography fan and has been following me on Facebook and Instagram for years! She had always said that when she had a baby that she would be scheduling her session with me, and when she contacted me and did that… well, it meant the world to me. It is an incredible honor and I am so very touched to have such a devoted fan throughout my photography career and the successful growth of my beloved business. From my heart, thank you Bienvenida!

A Newborn Session all the way from Newark, New Jersey

Marilyn Elena was just fifteen days old when I met her and her mom at the studio the day of her newborn session. With Marilyn’s aunt in company, the three of them made the trip down and drove nearly three hours all the way from Newark, NJ for Marilyn’s newborn photos. It is always an honor when I have clients that travel great distances just to have me be their newborn photographer. However, no matter how near or far my clients travel, they are all very near and dear to my heart and I love them all just the same.

Pink and White Baby Girl Newborn Pictures – CT Baby Photographers

At the time Bienvenida booked their baby’s newborn session, she didn’t know she was going to be having a girl because her and Cris wanted to keep their baby’s gender a surprise until birth. Once their beautiful daughter arrived in their arms, an idea came to planning out the colors for her baby’s newborn session – simply beautiful and feminine. Mom chose pink and white colors for the setups to be designed around. And, what is a feminine newborn session without adding bows, jewels and some tulle?! – wink!  Marilyn Elena looked absolutely darling in all the very girly pink colors, tones and accessories that was selected and designed for her newborn pictures. I love the photo of Elena laying on her mom’s wedding dress with that sweet, sweet smile of hers. Doesn’t that Just melt your heart?
