Darling Baby McKenzie | Maternity and Newborn Photographers in CT


Hello! Thank-you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography. I specialize in maternity and newborn photography in CT and have a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos but also being a part of these special moments in people’s lives. My goal is to give my clients beautiful photographs of their pregnancy and new baby that they can cherish forever. I hope you enjoy this recent post as here is a little peek into my Newborn Session with darling baby McKenzie.

The sweetest of couples and the sweetest of baby girls

For Lauren and Ryan, first came love, then came marriage and then came their adorable baby girl McKenzie. Lauren and Ryan are the sweetest of couples who have been together for 13 years and have been married for two of them. When they were expecting their first baby, their newborn daughter McKenzie, they came across my Instagram and reached out to connect with me and hire me as their maternity and newborn photographer in CT. Having met them for their maternity session and had the chance to get to know them along the way while I took their pregnancy pictures, I knew they were such a sweet couple full of love and I couldn’t wait to meet their new baby girl and take their newborn pictures.

Lavender and cream colors for this darling little Miss

Little Miss McKenzie looked so precious with the soft and light, lavender and cream color choices that mom choose for her newborn photos.  I always love the light and muted color tones in newborn photography, but when you have a baby girl who rocks the rustic props with earth tones too, it’s a match made in heaven.
