Newborn Photography CT – Dawson Newborn Pictures

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Newborn Photographer CT. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post of this handsome little fella and browse around the blog and my website! I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT that is dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. 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 recent blog post of handsome baby Dawson. Here is a little peek into his custom newborn photography session in the MHP studio.

Newborn Photography CT – Dawson Newborn Pictures

When sweet Dawson’s Mom and Dad were looking for a newborn photographer to capture their precious baby boy, they were referred to Melissa Hartigan Photography by countless family members and lots of friends who are also past and current clients of mine.  They were excited to be growing their family and welcoming their first baby together. Capturing tender newborn moments for new as well as seasoned parents always tugs at my heart strings because with every birth of a newborn baby is the birth of a family. A newborn photography session is the perfect way to capture those first family moments.

Dawson was amazing for his newborn session. He was such a sleepy baby and was so calm and relaxed, I barely remember him making a peep his entire newborn session. He had the perfect newborn skin, it was so sweet, so soft and I could have posed and cuddled him all day if his mama and dad would have let me.

Meeting my clients and getting to know them before, during and after our session has long come gone is one of the things that I love about providing custom newborn and family portrait services. Mom and Dad shared with me that they both have careers as Police Officers. Dad was a Major in the Army Reserves, he loves hockey and played the sport for years, he is great at and loves building model airplanes as a hobby. Mom majored in Animal Sciences before becoming a Police Officer, she loves animals and anything outdoors that she can partake in and enjoy. They have a whole lot of love between the two of them and right in the middle of their love is their newborn son Dawson.

For Dawson’s newborn session colors, his mom wanted to keep with green, tan and cream colors to show off her handsome baby boy. He was in dreamland for his session, but I was lucky and caught his sweet little smirk when I posed him in the barrel. I love the baby smiles, so stinkin’ cute!

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.
