Hi there! Thanks for dropping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer and browsing around my newest blog.

I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family.  Here is a little peek into Caleb’s Sweet and Simple Studio Newborn session.

Caleb’s Sweet & Simple Newborn Session – Coventry CT Newborn Photographer

Finding me on google while Ashley was still pregnant with their first baby, they booked the Sweet and Simple Newborn Session to capture their baby’s newborn photos. The Sweet and Simple Newborn Session is a custom styled posed newborn session in studio that captures the. Posed newborn photography is a style of newborn photography where your baby is posed in a variety of adorable photographer guided poses. Not only do I love specializing in and offering posed newborn photography in my studio, but I also love being a Connecticut Hospital Baby Photographer and capturing Fresh 48 Hospital Photos after baby is freshly born and snuggled in mom’s and dad’s arms.

As parents-to-be, Ashley and Brian wanted to keep their baby’s gender a surprise at birth. So they didn’t find out that they were welcoming a baby BOY into their arms until the day Caleb was born and he let out his first little cry. There is something that I just love about surprises like that – maybe it’s because it is the last real surprise that life will give us, or perhaps because it’s the element of excitement waiting to find out what you are having. Caleb is such a handsome little one. Oh my goodness, I could have snuggled him all day long. He was so good for his newborn session that he only woke up once to get some mama snuggles and a fully belly, and then he went right back to sleep for the rest of his session.

Babymoon before Baby – Coventry CT Baby Photographer

Ashley and Brian are the type of couple that loves to vacation together and spend their time together exploring in new adventures where ever their heart decides to take them. Before baby Caleb was born they decided to treat themselves to one last getaway for two – well, technically three – and they celebrated their growing family and went a Babymoon. Nowadays, as a family of three plus their canine fur baby named Dallas, they will be vacationing in baby and children friendly spots whenever they get the itch to take a family vacation.

Blue & Neutral Colors for Baby Boy Newborn Photos

Who doesn’t love blue for a baby boy?! I absolutely adore the light blue and grey colors paired together for a baby boy’s newborn session because they are a true classic color combination that will stand the test of time. Caleb is way too adorable all cuddled up on the light blue backdrop and posed in the metal bucket. He looks like he is visiting dreamland. So comfy, so cozy!
