Declan Thomas Freshly Born – North Haven CT Hospital Baby Photographer

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – Newborn Photography CT, and browsing around my recent blog post of this newborn baby boy. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a CT Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children and family photography. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish forever of their new baby and as a family. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this new family of three.  Here is a little peek into Declan Thomas’s Fresh48 Hospital Session.

Declan Thomas Freshly Born – CT Hospital Baby Photographer

Declan Thomas is the strong masculine name that Laura and Peter gave the name of their first baby – a precious, handsome baby boy. Laura and Peter looked for a CT Hospital Baby Photographer to document them meeting their new baby boy those first hours after he was born. They wanted to capture the raw, happy, excited love-filled moments of them as new parents cuddling and getting to know their new baby. Declan’s Fresh 48 hospital photos will become treasured photographs that Laura and Peter will forever hold close to their hearts.

Meeting Baby Declan Thomas at Yale New Haven Hospital

In those first hours after Declan’s birth, I came to the Yale North Haven Hospital and met new parents Laura and Peter in their hospital room for Declan’s Fresh48 Hospital Session. I always love meeting new parents in their hospital room after their baby has been born and welcomed into his new family. All the tender love and emotion still fills the room and it’s so beautiful and touching to capture. Getting to know Laura and Peter, I learned that Peter is a fire fighter, and that they are Red Sox and Boston Bruin fans. They enjoy being home with their two boxers and spending quality time with family and friends.

Melissa Hartigan Photography offers Fresh48 Hospital Sessions to those new parents-to-be wishing to capture those first moments after their baby is born and has been welcomed into their parents loving arms. Hospital baby photos are a great way to capture mom and dad snuggling and loving their new baby, older siblings meeting their new baby brother or sister for the very first time, grandparents and even great-grand parents meeting their grandchild. These sessions are intimate in nature because of the location of the session. Fresh48 Sessions take place in your hospital room before mama and baby have been discharged. They capture the intimate connection meeting your new baby and the very love that fills your heart – a kind of love you never knew existed before meeting your baby.
