Outdoor Autumn Family Photos – Family Photography Ledyard CT

Allison, Daniel and Norah are no strangers to Melissa Hartigan Photography. I have been photographing this family over the past four years, ever since Norah was born. I’ve captured six sessions with them and documented Norah’s newborn session, her milestone moments throughout her first year capturing all of those precious baby moments, and now we have moved to capturing family session outdoors. There have been all lot of love, laughs, fun and sweet smiles captured over the past years of photographing this beautiful family. Each year I search for a new fun location to photograph this family’s love at, and they book a full 1-hour family session to document their family moments with.

Getting to know my clients makes me feel like I’m photographing old friends, and I love when my clients feel the same and are comfortable in front of my camera. Over the years of photographing this sweet family, I’ve come to know them even more and know that they are such a sweet, kind, loving family. As Norah has gotten older and grown into a darling little girl, she loves to draw and read and watch her favorite shows; Paw Patrol, Berenstain Bears and Peppa Pig. She is a sweet and kind, little girl with a heart of gold.

Connecticut Family Photographer – Family Photography Ledyard CT

Family photography sessions are the perfect way to capture the growth in your family year after year, your family having fun at play and all the silliness that can be had. When I photograph families, I always capture the silly, fun-loving side of all your loved ones as well as the formal pictures. I’ll capture each family member and document the relationship they have with each other, as well as focus on documenting your togetherness as a united family. I work to capture the entire family together, siblings together, and each on their own. It’s so important to capture every family member and freeze them in those moments just as they are.

Melissa Hartigan Photography All-Inclusive family sessions begin booking in April each year and are photographed until the end of the fall season. As a mother to five children, I know how important it is to capture your family and freeze the fleeting moments as each year passes you by. After all, they are moments that once they are gone you won’t be able to get back. Since All-Inclusive Family Sessions tend to fill up very quickly, I always recommend that if you are wanting to schedule your family session to book as soon as possible.

About Melissa Hartigan Photography

When you book a session with Melissa Hartigan Photography, whether it be a family session, maternity and newborn sessions, a baby milestone session or your senior’s portraits before they graduate, 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 photographer. 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.
