Darling Emma Sweet & Simple Newborn Session – Newborn Photography Connecticut

It’s a touching honor when your client loves their newborn photos so much that when they are expecting their second baby that you are their first choice when it comes to capturing their precious newborn memories again. I’m always so grateful to be a part of so many moments and memories for my clients that it feels I’m almost a part of their family, and it means the absolute world to me that I get to capture their cherished memories. The excitement knowing that I’ll be seeing them again, seeing how much their first child has grown and meeting their newest blessing, really is something out of this world.

I captured newborn photos of big brother Connor when he was a fresh, little newborn. He’s grown to love trucks, books and trains.  It’s been amazing to see him back again, but this time as a big brother to take his baby sister’s newborn photos.

Kristen and Ian chose the Sweet & Simple Newborn Session for Emma’s newborn session, and it really was that sweet and simple! Emma is a darling baby girl and she was so good for her newborn session. She slept the entire time and I don’t think she barely made a peep. She is just too pretty and I loved the baby snuggles that I got with her while she was at my studio for her session.

Emma’s mom chose a simple color palate of grey and pink for her baby girl’s newborn session. I have to say that I adore this color combination because of its simplicity and the softness that the pink plays off the grey. Emma looked absolutely darling in the soft baby pinks with the touches of cream. That littler smirk of hers wearing the grey knitted baby bonnet tugs at my heart strings every time. I love when a baby smiles!

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photo shoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

My goal is to give my clients beautiful photographs they can cherish forever, and an experience to remember why they chose custom photography with an experienced and professionally trained newborn photographer to capture their newborns photo memories. I would love the opportunity to capture your memories with a maternity session, fresh 48 hospital photos, studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.
