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. Here is a little peek into Luca’s newborn session.

Luca Classic Newborn Session – Newborn Photography Griswold CT

Chelsae and Romain were so excited to be welcoming their first baby and they wanted to capture their family of three’s first moments together with a newborn session. They booked the Classic Newborn Session to capture and document these very precious and very fleeting moments. Mom booked their newborn session earlier on in her pregnancy to ensure that there was an opening when precious baby Luca arrived earth side. 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.

Getting to know this sweet family, mom shared with me that while her husband is originally from Montpellier France, she was born and raised in Connecticut. They met on St. Martin where they lived for a while until they moved to France. They loved going to nearby rivers and hiking mountains. They enjoy taking trips to the beach because it’s their favorite place to relax. Loving and snuggling their new baby boy is sure to be the favorite past time now.

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

For Luca’s newborn session colors, mom wanted to keep with sage green and cream colors to show off her handsome baby boy. Keeping with the soft muted tones of green and cream colors, all the setups really coordinated well with each other. Luca was such a good baby for his newborn session and I adored being his newborn photographer.

Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a studio newborn photographer servicing 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.
