Lisa Studio Maternity Photos – Hartford County Maternity Photographer

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Maternity Photographer. Expecting a baby is such an exciting time in your life, and documenting your pregnancy is a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world while waiting for your baby to arrive. Maternity photography is among my favorite sessions to photograph for the beautifulness of a blooming pregnancy. When a client schedules a maternity and newborn session with MHP, I am documenting their beautiful moments as new parents-to-be. For this sweet mama from Suffield CT, this is a little glimpse into her beautiful journey into parenthood with her third baby.

Lisa contacted me to reserve her baby’s due date with a newborn session as well as schedule a maternity session and capture her pregnancy moments while her and her husband awaited the arrival of their first baby together. Lisa shared with me that her and her husband were surprised by this pregnancy and overjoyed at welcoming another baby into their already busy, blended family of five, soon-to-be six. Their family loves being outdoors, they are avid snowmobilers in the winter and beach goers in the summer, they love to travel, and when they aren’t on the go with their three children between them from previous marriages, they spend time together as a family.

Lisa wanted to capture a light and airy feel to her session using whites and neutrals along with capturing a classic black and white formal feel. Mama had an idea of incorporating Calvin Klein sports bra and boy shorts set that she paired with an oversized knit sweater into one of her outfit changes, and it looked amazing! Although she came to her maternity session alone and captured mama-only maternity portraits, it was a special way to capture this amazing time for her and her growing family.

Lisa is a gorgeous mama-to-be who looked absolutely stunning in the long black form fitted maternity gown she selected to wear for her maternity photos. The maternity dress Lisa wore is a gown that was borrowed from my extensive maternity client wardrobe that is available to all maternity clients to use for their sessions. The maternity client wardrobe is carefully curated with beautiful gowns from Sew Trendy Accessories selected to fit the couture and boutique style of maternity photography. 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.

As a Maternity and Newborn Photographer, every day I get the pleasure of meeting expectant couples and families that will soon will be welcoming their new baby. Not only do I love being a maternity and newborn photographer, but I also love photographing babies of all ages and capturing all the baby milestones.  As quick as the pregnancy and newborn stages pass, so does a baby’s first year and all the different stages.
