Beautiful Outdoor Family Photos – Family Photography West Hartford CT

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Connecticut Family Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post, browse around the blog and check out my website. I am a professional family photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. I photograph my family photography sessions all over the state of Connecticut. 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 blog post of this darling family from West Hartford, Connecticut. Here is a little peek into their family session.

Beautiful Outdoor Family Photos – Family Photography West Hartford CT

Vania and Matthew have come to Melissa Hartigan Photography for all their photography memories since their daughter Thea was a sweet days old newborn baby when I captured their Newborn Session in studio, Thea’s One Year Milestone Session and now their beautiful outdoor family photos. We captured their family photos outside at a beautiful location at the end of August last year. It was such a beautiful day that day, the sun was shining and everyone was happy and ready to capture Zoe and Thea’s childhood silliness as well as their family love. It was such a fun session. I just love seeing all my beloved clients again throughout the years and capturing all their treasured family moments and memories.

Family photo sessions are the perfect way to capture your family at play and capture all the silliness that can be had. When I photograph families, I always capture the silly, fun-loving side of all your loved ones as well as the formal pictures. I’ll capture each family member and document the relationship they have with each other, as well as focus on documenting their togetherness as a family. I work to capture the entire family together, siblings together, and each on their own. It’s so important to capture every family member and freeze them in those moments just as they are. Near the end I love to spend a few moments to capture just Mom and Dad together as a couple. Because together they are the beginning of every family.

The All-Inclusive Family Sessions begin booking in April each year and are photographed until the end of autumn. As a mother to five children, I know how important it is to capture your family as each year passes you by and freeze all those fleeting moments of your loved ones. After all, they are moments that once they are gone you won’t be able to get them back. A family photography session is the perfect way to capture the growth in your family year after year and update your family portraits that are displayed in your home. Since April is mere weeks away and all-inclusive family sessions do tend to fill up quickly, I always recommend that if you are wanting to schedule your family session to book as soon as possible. Let’s capture your beautiful family!

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 photographer. 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 annual family photographs.
