Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post and browse around my website. I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT 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.

Christian Rainbow Baby Newborn Pictures – Newborn Photography East Hartford

Tanya and Miguel love being together and spending their time outdoors with their three-year-old son Alexander. As a family, they love spending time at the beach and their new favorite past-time is holding, cuddling and loving their rainbow baby boy, Christian.

For this darling family this was their fifth photography session with me. I photographed their first son Alexander’s Newborn Session. Now I’m getting the honor of phographing their family as Mom booked both maternity and newborn sessions to capture her pregnancy  with this baby,  as well as her baby’s fleeting newborn moments. We captured her pregnancy with the Heirloom Maternity Session and she booked the client beloved Treasured Newborn Session to capture their baby’s newborn photos. Tanya’s friends and family gifted her with gift certificates to put towards her newborn session with her rainbow baby boy.  Gift certificates are always available to purchase in any amount and can be used to put towards any session that I offer. They make the most perfect and memorable gift!

Christian was such a tiny little fella when he came in for his newborn pictures. He was such a sleepy baby, but oh-so tiny and so darn cute! Mom let me know that he is their rainbow baby. Since rainbow babies have a special rainbow symbol to honor the birth of a baby after a loss, I wanted to capture a special set up for them. I used a special rainbow hat and he looked so darling in it!

Mom choose blue and ivory colors for Christian’s newborn pictures. With those colors selected for his session, I designed his newborn set-ups around them and captured him perfectly. He was in dreamland for his nearly his entire session and I was able to do a variety of setups with him. The light and soft blue colors with his skin tone were such a perfect match, and oh my goodness his newborn hair melted my heart!

About CT Newborn Photographer with Newborn Photography Props

Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautifully curated newborn wardrobe to style and dress each newborn baby with. As a newborn photographer in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I am always buying and adding new and beautiful knitted-handmade props to my newborn and baby prop collection. Clients always have access to these props for their newborn and baby milestone sessions. Props are always pre-selected based off the color choices that you choose prior to your session, and set-ups are then designed around your color choices. Everything is always prepared and ready to begin once you arrive for your newborn and baby milestone sessions. I am always happy to pre-select client desired props from my prop collection to include in your session setups.

When you book a session with Melissa Hartigan Photography, I give you MY ALL, before, during and long after your session has come and gone. I am NOT the photographer that starts a stop watch at the beginning of your session, I am NOT the photographer that will ever rush, I am NOT the photographer that will give up when I know how important a certain capture is to a client.

I AM the photographer that wants to capture your newborn, child, senior teenager or family as they are the day of your session. I love my job. Capturing moments and freezing memories in time to cherish always. It truly makes my heart full and so happy. I hope when anyone looks at a photo I have taken they see and know this.

It’s always my pleasure provide to props for your newborn session from some of the best newborn photography prop vendors in the industry. For Christian’s Treasured Newborn Session that was photographed in my Coventry, CT photography studio, I used outfits, hats, backdrops and props from some of my favorite newborn prop vendors: No. 2 Willow LaneLittle Bean CreationsRoses and RufflesRed Owl Photo Props and Pooks and Lulu.
