Blake Classic Newborn Session – New London County Baby Photography

It’s a touching honor when your client loves their photography sessions and their captured images so much that you are their first choice when it comes to capturing their precious newborn memories again. That is what Megan and Ryan did when they were expecting their second child, their daughter, precious baby Blake, they connected with me again and booked the Classic Newborn Session.

Blake is a precious baby girl and I was so excited to meet her. She was so good for her newborn session; she was in dreamland nearly the entire time and I don’t think she barely made a peep. She is just too pretty and I loved the baby snuggles that I got with her while she was at my studio for her session. Having captured photos of big brother Jackson from a days old newborn to his first birthday, documenting his sitting up milestone as well as his one-year milestone, it was amazing to see him back in the studio again, but this time as a big brother to take his baby sister’s newborn photos.

As a new family of four, they love vacations in South Jersey at the shore, they enjoy watching Disney movies, and surely loving on the newest member of the family. Jackson has grown to love trucks, vehicles and dinosaurs. Ryan loves working out, playing a round of golf or basketball, and he rains youth basketball players. Megan enjoys a trip to the spa getting her nails done and a relaxing massage, shopping and wine tastings. They are a very active and busy family and they enjoy all the moments and memories they make together.

I’m always so grateful to be a part of so many moments and memories for my clients that it feels I’m almost a part of their family, and it means the absolute world to me that I get to capture their cherished memories. The excitement of knowing that I’ll be seeing them again, seeing how much their first child has grown and meeting their newest baby bundle, really is something that I hold near and dear to my heart.

Baby Girl Newborn Photos Light Pink and Cream – Newborn Photography New London County

Blake’s mom chose a simple color palate of light pink and cream for her baby girl’s newborn session. I have to say that I adore this color combination because of its simplicity and the softness paired together. Blake looked absolutely darling in the soft baby pinks with the touches of cream. She has the sweetest of faces and cheeks that you can’t help swoon over.

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photoshoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

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 and professionally trained newborn photographer to capture their newborns photo memories. I would love the opportunity to capture your memories with a maternity session, fresh 48 hospital photos, studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.
