Reagan Newborn & Sitter Milestone Pics – Tolland Newborn Photography

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer and browsing around my blog. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a Connecticut Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children, senior 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 family from Tolland CT.  Here is a little peek into Reagan’s Newborn and Sitter sessions.

Reagan Newborn & Sitter Milestone Pics – Tolland Newborn Photography

Jeni and Michael were growing their family and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to capture their newborn daughters first days into the world so they reserved their baby’s due date well in advance of their baby girl being born. When they arrived to the studio as a family of four with their new baby girl for their Treasured Newborn Session,I instantly fell head over heels with her sweet little face.

Reagan was sleepy for her session and I was able to capture her in so many precious newborn photography baby poses.  She made posing and photographing so easy, and capturing these fleeting moments for her mom and dad and big brother William is just one reason why I hold newborn photography close to my heart. As a family, they love animals and have three dogs and one horse to call their own. They love being outdoors and enjoy doing DYI activities to spend their free time. William is inquisitive and quite the active little fella and he sure does love his baby sister.

Sitting Up Baby Milestone – Newborn Photography Tolland

Reagan was so happy and playful during her All-Inclusive Milestone Mini Session that mom and dad booked for her. The Milestone Mini session is a great option to capture this special age. Little ones are full of so many tender expressions at this age and these sessions captured are a beloved client favorite. Dad brought her in for this milestone session. It took Reagan a little bit to warm up in front of the camera, but once she did, she was full of personality.  She is a very happy baby girl and I can tell she is so very loved by her mom, dad and big brother.

As a Newborn Photographer, I get the pleasure of meeting new families with new babies every day. Not only do I love being a newborn photographer, but I also love photographing babies of all ages and capturing all the baby milestones from pushing up, sitting up, standing up, their first birthday milestone and all the baby details like first baby teeth and the adorable toothy grins. As quick as the newborn stage passes so do all the different stages of the baby milestones, and it’s so important not to miss capturing those major milestones and details.

Beautiful Boutique Newborn & Baby Outfits

Baby girls are so fun to dress up and Reagan no was exception. She was so easy going and she let me dress her up in adorable handmade outfits from some amazing vendors that I frequently purchase baby outfits from for my newborn and milestone sessions. I have a beautifully curated baby prop and wardrobe collection to style each session and dress each baby with. If you’re looking for some props or color ideas for your upcoming newborn or baby milestone sessions with me, please check out my Newborn Gallery and Baby Milestone Gallery. For Reagan’s newborn and sitter milestone session done in my Coventry, CT photography studio, I used outfits, hats, backdrops and props from some of my favorite newborn prop vendors: No. 2 Willow LaneLittle Bean CreationsRoses and RufflesRed Owl Photo Props, Pooks and Lulu and Hello Little Props.

Newborn & Baby Milestone Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photoshoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

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.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into her Treasured Newborn Session and Mini Milestone Session. Get in touch with me for booking information and availability!
