Emma Newborn & Sitter Milestone Photos – East Lyme CT Baby Photography

Hi there! Thanks for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer and browsing my blog. If you are visiting my blog for the first time, welcome and thank you for stopping by. If you are a returning visitor stopping by to check out this weeks’ featured blog post, welcome back and thanks for visiting again. For the newcomers to my blog, I would love to introduce myself to you. I am a wife and a mother to five children and I found my passion and niche with photography and working with newborns. I specialize in newborn photography throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and I have a beautiful photography studio that is located in Coventry, CT.  As a professional photographer, I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish of their new baby and family forever. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family.  Here is a peek into Emma Louise’ Cherished Newborn session in the Melissa Hartigan Photography Studio.

Emma Newborn & Sitter Milestone Photos – East Lyme CT Baby Photography

Kristin and William got in touch with me when they were growing their family of five with their three adorable triplet boys into their family of six and welcoming a baby girl into their family. Having photographed their triplets’ newborn and sitter milestone photos with the Cherished Newborn Session when they were newborns and their milestone photos with the All-Inclusive Milestone Session, Kristin and William booked the same for their baby girl. Emma was a perfect baby for her session, she slept nearly the whole time and I was able to pose her in so many adorable newborn photography poses that mom and dad just adored.

Don’t forget to take a peek at the triplets newborn and milestone photos below.

They love to go camping as a family and enjoy the outdoors. We spend time at parks where the boys love checking out different playgrounds as well as playing with their cousins. Liam likes to break out into dance, he is the sweetest goofball, Nate loves trains and loves babies, he always goes up to every baby he sees; Lucas loves to read books and flip through magazines. They all love watching Sesame Street. They are the sweetest family!

Baby Girl Newborn Photos Rose and Cream Colors – Baby Photography East Lyme CT

Kristin had a vision in mind for her daughter’s newborn photos and wanted rose and cream colors paired together for her daughter’s newborn setups. Emma looked so darling in all the pink colors and tones that I used for her baby pictures and I absolutely adore how sweet she looks posed and sleeping peacefully. She is a beauty baby girl and she is surrounded by love from her older brothers and her mama and dad.

As a newborn photographer in East Lyme CT that is driven to provide a custom newborn portrait experience, I love offering clients a variety of color and prop 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 and props 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.

Sitting Up Baby Milestone Photos – CT First Year Baby Photographer

When Emma came back to the studio for her sitting up milestone session, I could see just how much she had grown and how much personality she had in the months since doing her newborn photos. She is a sweetheart and goes with the flow. She is such a happy little girl, so smiley and full of laughs.

As a baby and first year milestone photographer located in Connecticut, I am always adding beautiful new knitted and handmade props to my studio baby prop collection.  Melissa Hartigan Photography clients always have access to these props for their newborn sessions as well as baby milestone sessions. You don’t need to worry about bringing anything for your session except yourselves and your happy baby ready to have their picture taken. Props are always pre-selected based off the color choices that you choose prior to your session. Custom set-ups are then designed around your color choices. Everything is always prepared and ready to begin once you arrive for your baby milestone session.

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 when anyone looks at an image I have taken they see and know this.

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, a studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.

For some color or prop ideas for your upcoming newborn and milestone sessions, please visit my Newborn Gallery and Baby Milestone Gallery. It’s always my pleasure provide to props for your studio newborn and baby sessions from some of the best photography prop vendors in the industry. For Emma’s Newborn and Baby Milestone Sessions that was photographed in my Coventry, CT photography studio, I used outfits, hats, backdrops and props from some of my favorite vendors: No. 2 Willow LaneLittle Bean CreationsRoses and RufflesRed Owl Photo Props and Pooks and Lulu.
