CT Maternity Newborn Photography – Michelle & Coral Rayne Maternity & Baby Photos 

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Maternity Newborn Photographer, and browsing around my recent blog post of Michelle’s beautiful outdoor maternity photos and of their sweet baby girl Coral Rayne newborn photos. For those who are visiting for the first time, welcome. I’m a CT Maternity Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children and family photography. Expecting a baby is such an exciting time in your life, and documenting your pregnancy and newborn moments is such a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world. Maternity and Newborn photography is among my favorite of sessions to photograph. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality images they can cherish forever of their pregnancy, new baby and as a family. When a client schedules their maternity and newborn sessions with MHP, I am documenting their beautiful moments as new parents. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable maternity and newborn moments for this new family of three.  Here is a little peek into this sweet family’s maternity and newborn sessions.

CT Maternity Newborn Photography – Michelle & Coral Rayne Maternity & Baby Photos

Michelle and London are one of the many expectant couples that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting throughout the years that I’ve specialized in maternity and newborn photography. As expectant parents looking for Maternity & Newborn Photography in Connecticut, they found me searching on Google and booked in for their sessions. They reserved their baby’s newborn session with the beloved Treasured Newborn Session and captured their pregnancy with the Timeless Maternity Session.

As lovers of the beautiful outdoors, country living, we captured Michelle and London’s maternity session outdoors against the beautiful backdrop that mother nature provides us. Michelle was glowing during her session and she really looked stunning in the soft pink long maternity gown she selected to wear for her maternity photos. The very essence of a beautiful, expectant mama was captured on her in these photos and it goes without really having to say anything at all, that pregnancy looked absolutely amazing on her.  These are the images that Michelle and London will look back on years from now and still love them just as much as the day we photographed them because of the reminder of the joy they felt while they awaited the arrival of their precious baby girl.

Tolland County Maternity Photographer

Maternity clients are always welcome to browse the studio wardrobe and borrow anything during their maternity sessions. The studio wardrobe is carefully curated with beautiful maternity gowns from Sew Trendy Accessories to fit the couture and boutique style of maternity photography. Maternity clients have always appreciated having a selection of dresses and gowns to choose from for use during their sessions, and I am always happy to include these as part of scheduling your maternity session with Melissa Hartigan Photography. Michelle borrowed the long pink maternity gown from my studio wardrobe closet which is available to all maternity clients to wear.

Coral Rayne Treasured Newborn Session

When sweet little Coral Rayne came to my Photography Studio for her Treasured Newborn Session, I was in awe of how tiny she was. She was such a petite little thing with such gorgeous locks that I just had to accentuate it with some pretty baby girl headbands. After their newborn session had come and gone and they received their proofing gallery, Michelle and London added on an image to their gallery of their baby girl. Additional images are always an option for all clients for their booked sessions.

Baby Girl Newborn Pictures Purple, Cream, Coral Colors

Little Miss Coral Rayne was darling during her newborn session. Mom selected purple, cream and coral colors for her newborn pictures and mom chose perfectly because Coral Rayne looked so precious with all of the purple, cream and coral colors and tones. I think purple and coral might just be this sweet baby girl’s colors, especially considering her name is Coral – wink, wink!

About Melissa Hartigan Photography

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, 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 an image I have taken they see and know this.

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.
