I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful portrait studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to 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.

Mae Treasured Newborn Pics – West Hartford Baby Photography

Gillian and Jeffrey were so excited to be expecting their first baby and they knew they wanted to capture their baby’s newborn pictures so they connected with me and booked the Treasured Newborn Session. Not knowing if they were welcoming a boy or girl, they wanted to keep their baby’s gender a surprise until his or her birthday.  They welcomed their baby girl making them a new family of three.

Mom shared with me that she is very into girly things, she loves a good chick flick and grew up having tea parties with her mom, and is very active and loves running, yoga and spinning. Jeffrey loves baseball and they love to play together. They both ski and enjoy spending sunny days at the beach. Precious baby Mae is the perfect addition to this beautiful new family of three.

Baby Girl Newborn Photos Purple & Cream Colors – Baby Photographer West Hartford CT

Mom had ideas for colors for Mae’s newborn photo session, she wanted purple and cream colors used for the session setups. All the light and even darker purple tones were so inviting and pretty for a beautiful baby girls newborn photography session. Mae was the perfect baby girl for her session and I captured so many beautiful and precious images of her. She looks so sweet, so precious, so beautiful, all swaddled up warm and snug in the light purple knitted wrap posed in the basket with the white heart props. My absolute favorite, and I’m sure its one of mama and dads too.

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 family photographs to update year after year.
