Maddie Baby Pics – Middlesex County Newborn Photography

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer and browsing around my blog. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a Connecticut Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children, senior and family photography. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish forever of their new baby and as a family. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family from Cromwell located in Middlesex County, CT.  Here is a little peek into Maddie’s Newborn session.

Maddie Baby Pics – Middlesex County Newborn Photography

Katie and Matthew were expecting their first baby and didn’t want to miss the opportunity for a newborn session and capturing their baby’s first days fresh into this world. Being referred to Melissa Hartigan Photography from a beloved client of mine, mom-to-be and dad-to-be connected with me about their baby’s newborn session and reserving their due date. A referral is the sweetest compliment and the best advertising that a business could ever ask for, but for a small business owner who not only provides a professional, but personal service as well, word-of-mouth referrals are the cherry on top. Katie’s parents were thrilled to be welcoming a grandchild, and knowing the special memories that newborn photography provides for new parents and families, they gifted mama and dad with a gift certificate towards the Cherished Newborn Session.

When arrived to the studio as a family of three for their Cherished Newborn Session, I couldn’t help but adore how tiny and petite Maddie was. She slept for much of the session, only waking for short periods to check things out and have some mom and dad cuddles, and then she was right back to sleep. Working with newborn babies during posing and photographing, we always go off baby’s cues and just go with the flow of it all.

Mom wanted purple, white and cream colors all paired together for Maddie’s newborn session setups. From light and soft purple color tones that were mixed with whites and creams, to shades of purple just a bit darker for a bit of pop. Not only did Maddie steal the show with how sweet and petite she was, but she posed so well during her newborn session and I captured so many setups and adorable poses of her that her mama and dad can look back on and love forever.

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, 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, a studio newborn photography session, baby milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.

Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautifully curated newborn prop collection and wardrobe to style each session and dress each newborn baby with. If you’re looking for some newborn props or color ideas for your upcoming newborn or baby milestone sessions with me, please check out my Newborn Gallery.
