Garden Maternity Session – East Hartford CT Maternity Photographer

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Maternity Photographer. As a Maternity Photographer in Connecticut, documenting your pregnancy is a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world. Maternity photography is among my favorite sessions to photograph. When a client schedules a maternity session, I am documenting their beautiful moments as parents-to-be. For Tanya and Miguel, this is a little glimpse into their beautiful journey into parenthood with their second baby.

Garden Maternity Session – East Hartford CT Maternity Photographer

Tanya and Miguel, previous Maternity & Newborn Session clients from when they had their first baby and I photographed Alexander’s Newborn Session, got back in touch with me to schedule another maternity session and capture their pregnancy moments while they awaited the arrival of their second baby. They booked the Heirloom Maternity Session to capture this pregnancy and this special time in their life as a family of three before they grow into a family of four. The Heirloom Maternity is a wonderful session choice for parents looking capture family style maternity images all while keeping the focus on mama and baby. When this next little one arrives, I will be doing their newborn session as well.

Family Moments while Waiting for Baby

This gorgeous mama had the sweetest smile and a love for her son, husband and the baby she is carrying and nurturing. They are the sweetest family and so full of life! They love to enjoy a good comedic laugh, the great outdoors, sports, spending time at the beach, and being active in everyday life – simply put, they are just your all around fun-loving family. At the heart of Tanya and Miguel’s love though, is their very active 3 year old boy Alexander who is fascinated by Dinosaurs, Thomas the Train, Bulldozers, Trucks, Tractors, Swimming, Rides and playing at the Park.

Boutique Maternity Dresses & Couture Gown Collection – Maternity Photography East Hartford CT

Tanya looked so beautiful in all the long gowns that she borrowed from my maternity client wardrobe closet for her session. I cannot pick my favorite dress on her because she is truly beautiful in all of the dresses she wore. Tanya looks absolutely STUNNING in that purple jewel toned gown with those oh-so pretty flowers popping in the background!! Absolutely Gorgeous mama!!

The maternity client wardrobe is carefully curated with beautiful gowns to fit the couture and boutique style of maternity photography. Many of the gowns borrowed from the client wardrobe closet are from my favorite vendor company for maternity wear called Sew Trendy Accessories. Mamas love having a selection of dresses and gowns to choose from to use for their pregnancy photos, and I am always happy to include these as part of scheduling your maternity session with Melissa Hartigan Photography.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into this gorgeous maternity session with this beautiful couple and family from East Hartford Connecticut.  I would love to be your maternity & newborn Photographer.
