Carter Classic Newborn Session – Newborn Photography CT

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Newborn Photographer CT. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post of this handsome little fella Carter and browse around the blog and my website! I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT that is dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. 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 recent blog post of handsome baby boy. Here is a little peek into his custom newborn photography session in the MHP studio.

Carter Classic Newborn Session – Newborn Photography CT

Christopher and Cristopher were so excited to be welcoming their first baby, a precious baby boy named Carter. They wanted to book their newborn session well in advance of his due date and picked the Classic Newborn Session to capture their newborn moments. Since I tend to book up several months in advance, I encourage parent to book their session prior to their baby’s expected due date. Carter was so sweet for his session. He slept pretty much the entire session and he only woke up to eat and have some daddy snuggles. I love that I was able to pose him so perfectly and capture all the adorable posed newborn photography poses for his dads.

I always love when parents chat and we get to know each other. Chris shared with me that he’s a lawyer, his favorite TV show is The West Wing and he likes hiking. Cris shared that he is a pastry Chef, he is very creative and artistic, his favorite movie is Harry Potter and he enjoys kayaking. They are so excited to be parents and I know Carter is surrounded by so much love.

Dads chose a color palate of light green, light gray and cream colors together. The light colors worked very well together, they really are a perfect color combination, especially for a handsome baby boy. Carter rocked his first professional photoshoot with his sweet little face and his perfectly puckered little lips. He is just too adorable!
