Leona Gift Newborn Pictures – Windham County Newborn Photographer

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Newborn Photographer CT. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post of this beautiful baby girl and browse around my blog. I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful portrait studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to posed newborn photography, fine art maternity photography and baby milestone photography throughout all of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos and capturing moments in time, but I also adore being a part of these special moments in my client’s lives. Here is a little peek into Leona’s posed newborn photography studio session.

Leona Gift Newborn Pictures – Windham County Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Leona made her arrival earlier this year before the entire world was affected by the pandemic.  Leona was welcomed into both of her mom’s arms just in enough time and I was able to capture her stunning newborn pictures. Rikki bought the Treasured Newborn Session for Leona’s newborn pictures as a gift for Lindsey’s birthday. The session was perfect and Leona was so precious to photograph. It’s always an honor when someone contacts me to purchase a session as a gift for their beloved family member or a friend about to welcome a precious new life. You can never go wrong with the unique Gift of Photography for someone you care about. Interested in gifting a maternity or newborn session, baby milestone session, family session or senior portrait session get in touch with me!

Apart from snuggling their precious baby girl, Moms’ Rikki and Lindsay are a comfortably outdoorsy couple and enjoy much of their time outside at the park, going for hikes, or the hanging out at the beach. Because they love the outdoors as much as they do, they choose to do Leona’s nursery in a woodland theme. They painted the walls to be a mountain range and a birch tree grove. They are a classic minimalist couple, preferring anything neutral and living the simple life. Leona is the perfect addition to this sweet couple.

Being drawn to neutrals, Rikki asked for blue and cream colors and tones for Leona’s pictures. And, oh my heart – have I mentioned just how much I love baby girls in blue?! I don’t often get to set up and design newborn sessions around these colors’ combinations for baby girls, but I just love them and when I do, I make sure its just the right touch of blue. Blue tones can be just as much feminine, and brings a kind of sweetness to the baby pictures that will make you swoon.  Doesn’t Leona look so pretty in blue?!

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in Connecticut, 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.

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, studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.
