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. I have a beautiful photography studio that is located in Coventry, Connecticut.  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 from Windsor Locks, CT. Here is a little peek into Hayden’s newborn session.

Hayden Treasured Newborn Session – Newborn Photography Connecticut

Lauren and Michael were so excited to be welcoming their first baby together and they booked the Treasured Newborn Session to capture and document these very precious and very fleeting moments. Keeping with the element of surprise for the birth of their baby they decided not to find out if they would be welcoming a boy or girl and waited until he or she arrived earth side. When Hayden finally arrived, he was welcomed with pure love from his mama and dad. Capturing tender newborn moments for new parents always tugs at my heart strings because with every birth of a baby is the birth of a new family. Hayden was such a good baby for his newborn session and I adored being his newborn photographer.

Baby Boy Blue & Cream Colors Newborn Photos – Newborn Photography CT

For Hayden’s newborn session colors, his mom wanted to keep with blue and cream colors to show off her handsome baby boy. Keeping with soft baby blue colors paired with different shades of cream colors, all the setups really coordinated well with each other. One of my favorites from his session is him all bundled up with his little newborn teddy. He is just so perfect and precious!

Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a studio newborn photographer in Connecticut, and the nearby states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photoshoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

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 annual family photographs.
