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 thanks 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. I found my passion and niche with photography specializing in newborn photography in throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. 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 little peek into Ethan Thomas’ Newborn session.

Ethan Cherished Newborn Pics – Newborn Photography East Hartford CT

Finding Melissa Hartigan Photography on google, Nicole and Kevin reserved their newborn session for they baby boy Ethan Thomas. They booked the client favorite the Cherished Newborn Session and when they received their beautiful gallery of their handsome baby boy Ethan, they upgraded and added additional images to their final gallery.

Getting to know my clients is so important to me. For the few hours that you are welcomed to sit and relax in my studio while I handle your precious little baby bundle and photograph your most precious moments and memories, it’s nice getting to know each other a little. Getting to know this sweet family during their session, Mom Nicole shared with me that she loves the beach, anything related to flowers and she has a career as a nurse. Dad, Kevin loves biking, being outdoors, is a fellow photography enthusiast and dabbles in videography. Big Sister Autumn loves ballerinas, butterflies and mermaids. She is a girly-girl through and through. This family is so sweet and Ethan Thomas is the perfect addition.

Baby Boy Newborn Photos Mint Green and Blue Colors – Newborn Photography CT

For Ethan’s newborn session colors, his mom Nicole wanted to keep with simple masculine colors to show off her handsome baby boy. Keeping with blue colors and tones, and adding mint green colors and tones, all the setups really coordinated well with each other and they looked perfect with his freshly born skin and the most gorgeous head full of hair for a baby boy.

As a newborn photographer in East Hartford CT, I love offering clients a large selection of colors and tones for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors that go best with baby’s nursery, the colors in your homes, and the colors you love best is only one piece of the whole newborn photography process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to all of my clients.

Best CT Newborn Photographer

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 capture I have taken and 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 Fresh48 Hospital Photos to capture those first tender moments after your baby is born, or a Maternity Session to capture beautiful serene maternity pictures to remember your pregnancy by, or pre-book your baby’s Milestone Sessions throughout their first year.
