Hailey Nicole Classic Baby Newborn Photos – Southington CT Newborn Photography

Joanna and Kevin were referred to me as a newborn and family photographer by Kevin’s sister. A referral is the sweetest compliment that you could ever give a small business owner. I absolutely love when others refer me, because I know that my photography has touched another soul and they value my artistic work. It truly is a wonderful feeling when a client lets me know that they were referred by their family, friends and even past clients. I am always so touched and honored to be able to create beautiful art for all my referrals – so thank you!

Joanna and Kevin scheduled the Classic Newborn Session for their baby that were expecting. Expecting a baby is such a wonderful experience, and in life there aren’t too many surprises left – except one. The blessing of a baby is such a wonderful gift, but whether you are welcoming a sweet baby boy or a sweet baby girl is the only true surprise that life can give you. Joanna and Kevin wanted to enjoy one of the last surprises that life gives us and they decided they were keeping the baby’s gender a surprise for the birth. After their baby was born, I received a message from them that they had their baby and they welcomed a baby girl into their arms. It was wonderful to learn they had a baby girl.

The Beginning of a Family – Southington CT Newborn Family Photographer

Joanna and Kevin met while working at a grocery store in their teenage years and early 20s. We enjoy each other’s companionship. Since getting married in 2017, they have spent much of their newlywed time travelling to LA, San Diego, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Kevin describes Joanna as being warm hearted, conservative, and friendly. Joanna describes Kevin as being funny, goofy, and kind. These two are perfect for each other, and now that they are a new family of three the travelling adventures will be endless.

Baby Girl Newborn Pictures Pink, Cream, Purple and a Baby Holiday Photo

Hailey Nicole stole the show at her newborn session in all they set ups that I styled for her session to capture all her sweet, little baby features. Joanna wanted pretty colors to capture her baby girl with. She selected pink tones combined with creams as well as a simple holiday set up. During the session, Dad asked to incorporate some purple colors as well, so I gathered some complimentary purple tones and added them into the session styling.

Hailey Nicole looked so precious with all of the pinks, purples and soft cream colors. I always love the soft color tones in newborn photography and little miss Hailey Nicole couldn’t have looked any more darling than she already did at her 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.
