Hopes, Wishes and Dreams for Baby – Experienced Connecticut Newborn Photographer

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Experienced CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post and browse around the blog. I am a professional photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos but I also adore being a part of these special moments in my client’s lives. I hope you enjoy this recent blog post of handsome Theodore. Here is a little peek into his custom newborn photography session.

Hopes, Wishes and Dreams for Baby – Experienced Connecticut Newborn Photographer

Alexandra and Rob are just like every new parent that has brought a child into the world. All parents have hopes, wishes and dreams for their children as they grow up and experience life and the world around them.  As an active couple, they love to go skiing in Vermont, paddle boarding on Bolton Lake, and as parents, they hope that one day their son, Theodore, will grow up to love doing those things too. Sometimes we have big hopes and dreams for our children. Other times, we only hope that the simple things in life will become the heart of our children.

Theodore was so good for his newborn session, and I was able to capture his newness just perfectly. During newborn sessions at the Melissa Hartigan Photography studio, we always go off baby’s cues and stop as needed so your baby can feed and cuddle, and when it came to Theodore, we stopped to give him just that – a little break to feed and a whole lot of mama love.

Fall Baby Newborn Photos

Expecting their baby during the fall, Alexandra wanted to capture Theodore’s newborn session with fall colors and commemorate the season that their son was born. Theodore looked amazing in all the rich, warm colors of autumn. I especially loved creating a a seasonal setup and capturing him pumpkin style.

For some color and newborn prop ideas please visit my newborn gallery. Here are some of my favorites newborn props vendors that I used for Theodore’s newborn photos: Pooks and LuluNo.2 Willow LaneLittle Beans CreationsRoses and Ruffles, and Red Owl Photo Props.

There is nothing more than I would rather capture than the newness of a newborn baby. Everything about a new baby is so fresh, so new, so delicate.  It’s always those newborn details that are the first to become the distant memory as your baby grows. That’s why it’s always so important not to miss capturing those tiny details and those first newborn moments. Once the newborn stage is done, it’s over and gone forever. Make sure to preserve those moments!

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into Theodore’s newborn session. Get in touch with me through the contact tab to inquire about booking information and availability for your newborn session. It is never too early to get your session reserved on my calendar!
