Maeve Freshly Born – Tolland County Hospital Baby Photography

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Hospital Baby Photographer and browsing around my recent blog post of this newborn baby girl. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a CT Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children 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 new family of four from Tolland County CT.  Here is a little peek into Maeve’s Fresh48 Session captured in Hospital.

Maeve Freshly Born – Tolland County Hospital Baby Photography

The feeling of welcoming a baby into their arms was something that Alexandra and Robert were familiar with two years prior when they welcomed their baby boy and became parents for the first time, to their son, Theo. Photographing his newborn pictures and them as a family of three shortly after Theo turned one, this sweet family didn’t hesitate to reserve their due date and booked a Fresh48 Session to capture their next baby’s freshly born newborn pictures captured mere hours after she was born.

Meeting Baby Girl Maeve

In the hours after beautiful Maeve made her appearance earth side, I made my way to the hospital she was born at and met with second time parents Alexandra and Robert to capture their newborn moments with their newborn daughter. When I arrived, I found mama and dad snuggling and loving on their baby girl. Even though big brother Theo was excited to be welcoming a baby sister, he wasn’t at the hospital for his sister’s Fresh48 hospital photography session. Theo would be meeting his new baby sister afterwards and I can only expect it would have been a meeting filled with love. This darling family loves to be outside spending time at the beach or skiing and making memories together. Now they have a new baby to love and make memories with.

It’s always a wonderful feeling meeting parents in their hospital room after their baby has been born and welcomed into their new family. It’s when all the tender love and emotion fills the room and the beautiful moments between baby and parents are so touching to capture. I love photographing Fresh48 Hospital Sessions and documenting these exciting and fleeting memories for my clients and their growing families.

Melissa Hartigan Photography offers Fresh48 Hospital Sessions to those new parents-to-be wishing to capture those first moments after their baby is born and has been welcomed into their parents loving arms. Hospital baby photos are a great way to capture mom and dad snuggling and loving their new baby, older siblings meeting their new baby brother or sister for the very first time, grandparents and even great-grand parents meeting their grandchild. These sessions are intimate in nature because of the location of the session. Fresh48 Sessions take place in your hospital room before mama and baby have been discharged. They capture the intimate connection meeting your new baby and the very love that fills your heart – a kind of love you never knew existed before meeting your baby.
