Benjamin’s Handmade Baby Blanket & Newborn Photos | Newborn Photography CT Hebron

Hi there, and thank-you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography. I specialize in newborn photography CT Hebron and throughout Connecticut and have a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT. I absolutely love taking photos of expectant mothers, their families and their long awaited babies. I hope you enjoy this recent post as here is a little peek into my Newborn Session with the baby Benjamin and his special baby blanket.

One thing that I love time and time again, is when parents bring in special handmade items that were gifted to them for their sweet new baby.I love being able to capture their new baby with the precious items that have been gifted to them with love. Not only will their baby grow up to cherish that handmade and ever-so thoughtful keepsake gift, but it will become a treasured family heirloom. It will become a baby blanket that will be enjoyed, talked about, and treasured for years and generations to come. When parents receive handmade gifts, like a thoughtful baby blanket, it is one baby gift that will surely be passed down.

For Maggie and Thomas, Benjamin is their first baby, and likely won’t be their last, but this is where the baby blanket tradition begins and will continue on. This baby blanket that he was photographed with, is only just the beginning of a time honoured tradition for this family. When the time comes that he has children of his own, it would be such a sweet sentiment to have his children photographed with his baby blanket – just as he did when he was a newborn. How special and sweet is that?!

Benjamin was such a Dream baby for his session. He barely made a peep, and he let me work my magic and capture these truly classic and timeless photos of him. Mom followed the newborn session prep guidelines and it made all the difference in his successful newborn session in capturing his handsomeness. He was a champ and rocked all of the newborn outfits and setups that I designed from mom’s color choices for the session. Doesn’t he look so handsome?
