Connecticut Family Photography

Family photographs tell your story.

I can not stress enough the importance of family photos. Let me be apart of documenting your wonderful families story. Your children will enjoy sitting with you years from now looking back on the photos from your session.  Melissa Hartigan Photography family sessions are lifestyle based, capturing the love for one another.

The silliness, tickles, giggles, hugs and kisses, not all images will be posed, of course some will but not all.  I approach my family sessions this way as it takes the stress away, children young and older like to play or can be shy and I find approaching sessions this way makes them more enjoyable, allowing me to capture moments and the connection between all of you.  I will not just be taking your picture, I will be documenting your memories, your love for your family. This approach works wonderfully ridding the anxiousness felt by you worrying if your children will behave, sit or smile.


Prior to your session, I will assist you in outfit and accessory selections, whether it be headbands or what shoes to wear.  I am happy to give you a few of my favorite children’s shops, and what to look for when shopping for outfits. Feel free to ask, I’m happy to assist however I can.

As long as it’s okay with you, I will provide your children with a special treat at the end of the session as a reward for their hard work.  Typically, a family session last about 45-60 minutes.

Are you ready to book your family session so that you will have beautiful memories of your family to cherish for years to come!
