Beautiful Valentina’s Newborn Pictures – Hartford County CT Newborn Photographer

Nadia and Justin welcomed their second daughter, Valentina, into their very beautiful and very blessed family. This family of five is familiar to Melissa Hartigan Photography as I was their newborn and maternity photographer when they were expecting their second baby Giuliana. It was a sweet surprise when Nadia got in touch with me for newborn photos when they were expecting their third baby – sweet Valentina. I absolutely adore seeing my client’s families grow!

The oldest, of Nadia and Justin’s three children, Liam is sure to take care of his baby sisters. Giuliana was smitten with her baby sister, but for young toddler was a bit shy for the camera. Still, she gave the sweetest smile when they were laying down for their sibling photos.

A New Family of Five –Plainville CT Baby Photography

Nadia and Justin love taking their children on adventures and family vacations. Now that they have grown into a family of five, going on vacations with three little ones means vacationing closer to home. They love going on little family vacations and visiting some of the most fun and beautiful places in Boston, Vermont and Rhode Island.

Sweetly Sleeping – Newborn Photography Hartford County CT

Valentina was the perfect newborn baby girl for her first professional photo session with me in studio. She was so sleepy throughout her session, and I was able to capture so many adorable photos of her – the newborn setups were endless! She really took my breath away with how sweet she looked when she was sleeping and dreaming away during her session.

Baby Girl Newborn Pictures Purple and Cream – Plainville CT Newborn Photographers

Purple and cream colors never get old, especially for baby girls and she was no exception tones that Nadia selected for her newborn photos. I have some many favorites from her session but two photos of her that really tug at my mama heart are the ones of her is wearing the cream fringed bonnet posed in the wooden bucket, and her posed in what us newborn photographers call the ‘froggy’ pose. Gosh, she is a beautiful baby girl!
