Madelyn’s Luscious Baby Hair – Newborn Photography Tolland County

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Connecticut Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post of this sweet baby girl, browse around the blog and check out my website! I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and milestone photography for babies in their first year. 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 blog post of beautiful baby Madelyn Judith and her darling family from Andover, Connecticut. Here is a little peek into her studio newborn photography session.

Madelyn’s Luscious Baby Hair – Newborn Photography Tolland County

As new parents arriving at my photography studio for their baby girls’ newborn photos, I could see just how much in love they were with their sweet baby girl Madelyn. Stacey and Michael were referred to me to capture their newborn baby’s photos from a previous client of mine with whom I’ve captured lots of memories for. Booking a newborn session is such an exciting time when you’re expecting a baby. It means everything to make and capture memories with your newest little love with very beginning of your journey into parenthood with all the love. I adore capturing all the sweet squishy newborn poses for new parents, but I also love capturing those first family pictures after clients have welcomed their precious baby. This sweet family didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to include family photos with their baby girl so mom and dad selected the newborn session that fit all of their needs. I’m so happy I captured these precious newborn and family pictures for them.

Getting to know my clients is simply the best.  Stacey and Michael love relaxing together and catching up on tv shows. Stacey loves all things on Bravo specifically the Real Housewives series, but together they love Succession on HBO, Shameless and Schitts Creek. Michael loves all things sports and plays a round of disc golf once a week. Not only did they know they would expand their little family with baby feet, but they rescued a shy little dog in September of 2019 who fits in perfectly and they love so much!

Baby Girl Pink and Cream Newborn Photos – Tolland County CT Newborn Photography

I love the light pink and cream colors paired together that Stacey had selected for Madelyn’s newborn session. It really is the perfect balance between natural and feminine for a beautiful baby girl. Madelyn looked absolutely darling in all the setups I captured her in. With her sweet baby girl face and her beautiful, luscious newborn locks I couldn’t help but pretty her hair up with some delicate floral and feminine bows headbands and tiebacks. All the heart eyes in the world for her luscious locks!

Connecticut Newborn Photographer – 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 that when anyone looks at a capture I have taken and they see and know this.

When you are looking to book your newborn session, it is recommended to secure your newborn session preferably before baby arrives to ensure an opening for when your little one does make their appearance. Ideally, it is best to book when you are in your second trimester. When you book your newborn session, you may also consider adding on a Fresh48 Hospital Session to capture those first tender moments after the birth of your baby, or a maternity session to capture beautiful serene maternity pictures to remember your pregnancy by, or pre-book your baby’s milestone sessions throughout their first year.
