Beautiful Mama with the Red Dress On – Stamford CT Maternity Photographer

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Stamford CT Maternity Photographer. Expecting a baby is such an exciting time in your life, and documenting your pregnancy is a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world. Maternity photography is among my favorite sessions to photograph. When a client schedules a maternity session with MHP, I am documenting their beautiful moments as new parents-to-be. For Preethi and Ashakir, this is a little glimpse into their beautiful journey into parenthood.

The power of google searching brought this beautiful mama-to-be Preethi to find my website, get in touch with me to book their maternity and newborn sessions, and travel all the way from Stamford Connecticut with her husband Ashakir for their maternity and future newborn session.

Before the day of their maternity session, Preethi and Ashakir made a special trip to visit my studio so she could try on gowns from my client maternity wardrobe collection. I have a beautiful collection of boutique maternity gowns in a variety of colors and styles for mamas to wear during their session that they are welcome to come try on ahead of their maternity session. Preethi wanted to capture her pregnancy with a mix of bright, vibrant colors and soft creamy white tones in maternity dresses for her maternity photos.

When I was photographing them, I could tell how sweet and kind they are – but more than that, I could tell just how much love that they have for each other in the way that they interacted with each other in front of my camera.  That’s one of the reasons why I love specializing in capturing the essence of maternity photography.  Can I just say how absolutely stunning Preethi is?! She is such a beautiful mama!!
