Dante Gift Newborn Photos – Norwalk Newborn Photography

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Connecticut Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here and going to stay a while and browse around the blog. If you are newly visiting, let me briefly introduce myself. I am a professional photographer with a beautiful portrait studio located in Coventry, Connecticut 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. Here is a little peek into Dante’s Newborn Session captured in my studio.

Dante Gift Newborn Photos – Norwalk Newborn Photography

Kaitlin and Dante were so excited to be welcoming their first baby together – a boy – and they gave him a meaningful, generational family name when he arrived earth side. Sweet little Dante IV was welcomed with so much love. For Christmas, mom and dad had been given the gift of photography as a special gift from Dad’s sister and they scheduled the Sweet and Simple Newborn Session. Giving the gift of newborn photography is simply the most unique and cherished gift you can ever give new parents for them to remember their newborn moments by.

The Sweet and Simple Newborn Session is a custom styled posed newborn session in studio that captures your newborn and all their sweet little features. 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 posed newborn photography, but I also love capturing Fresh48 Hospital Photos after baby is freshly born and snuggled in mom’s and dad’s arms.

Mom requested a little more towards a masculine and neutral color palate for her baby boy’s photos. I designed his newborn session around her color requests and incorporated navy blues, creams, and gray colors into his newborn session. Dante IV looked absolutely dapper in all the colors, and textures that we used in the session. I adore baby boys in blue and gray colors. There is something so classic about that color combination with sweet new baby boys.

Capturing tender newborn moments for new parents always tugs at my heart strings, and capturing Kaitlin and Dante’s were no exception. Handsome little Dante was such a good baby for his newborn session and I adored being his newborn photographer.

As a newborn photographer in Connecticut that is driven to provide a custom newborn portrait experience, I love offering clients a variety of color choices for their newborn sessions at my studio. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, the colors in your homes, and the colors that are your favorites is only one piece of the whole newborn photography experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography that new parents absolutely love being a part of; and I am happy to offer that to all of my clients.

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, 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 that when anyone looks at a photo I have taken they see and know this.

When you are looking to book your newborn session, it is recommended to secure your newborn session preferably before baby arrives to ensure an opening for when your little one does make their appearance. Ideally, it is best to book when you are in your second trimester. When you book your newborn session, you may also consider adding on a maternity session to your newborn booking and we can capture beautiful serene maternity pictures to remember your pregnancy by.
