Richard & Summer Twins Older Newborn Photos – Newborn Photography Connecticut

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post and browse around my website. I am a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT 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 sweet twin babies Summer and Richard. Here is a little peek into their custom newborn photography session in the MHP Studio.

Richard & Summer Twins Older Newborn Photos – Newborn Photography Connecticut

Mary and Rich contacted me last minute to capture their sweet twin babies, Summer and Richard, who were born at 31 weeks. They were looking for newborn photographers and found me on google. Having loved all my sweet and touching google reviews from past clients and their experiences with me, Mary wanted me to capture their newborn photos and make sure that they didn’t miss the newborn stage at all. They booked the Classic Newborn Session and when the twins were 99 days old, they came into my studio and I captured all their sweetness.

Most of my tiniest clients that come to my studio are fresh days old newborn babies. I adore capturing all the squishiness of a fresh new baby and all the little details; newborn hair, skin flakes, newborn milia, baby nails and the sweet newness that they are. But I also love capturing older newborn babies once they have had a chance to get to know their parents and have been introduced to the world. They are just as sweet to capture. As you can see Richard and Summer posed just like newborns. You never want to miss capturing your newborn baby when they are their tiniest, but older newborns are so very sweet and I adore them just the same.

I love forming relationships with each and every client that I photograph because for the short time that I’m capturing their precious memories, I also become a part of family. I connected with Mary and Rich at their session. They shared with me that they both love spending time outdoors enjoying atving and hiking. They love animals and have both dogs and a cat. Mom shared with me that their twin babies are their two precious miracles, especially their baby girl, Summer. Summer is a very vocal baby and their spitfire, while Richard is more content and laid back. Give him some food and he is such a happy baby. They are such a sweet couple and as new parents I can see a whole newfound love between them and in their sweet new family.

When it came to making selections for the colors she wanted for their babies newborn photos, Mary surprised me and asked for me to style and design Richard and Summer’s newborn session and left the decisions up to me entirely. It’s not very often that a mama wants my creative expertise entirely, but I’m so very grateful for being able to use my creativity to the fullest.  With all the blue, pinks, greens and cream colors selected for their session, I designed their newborn set-ups around them and captured him perfectly. Richard and Summer are the cutest and I’m so lucky to have captured all their newborn moments for their mom and dad.
