Sam Classic Newborn Photos – Tolland Newborn Photography

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Connecticut Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re here and going to stay a while and browse around the blog. If you are newly visiting, let me briefly introduce myself. I am a professional photographer with a beautiful portrait studio located in Coventry, Connecticut 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. Here is a little peek into Sam’s Newborn Session captured in my studio.

Sam Classic Newborn Photos – Tolland Newborn Photography

This sweet family has come to see me for several of their photo sessions in the past. When their daughter was newborn, I captured her newborn pictures, her sitter session and her one year milestone session. Now they have come to see me again and I had the pleasure of meeting their new baby – a handsome boy named Sam – and capturing his newborn photos.

Katie contacted me early on in her pregnancy with baby Sam to reserve her newborn session. She reserved the Classic Newborn Session for her sweet baby boy. Even though baby Sam wasn’t born until later in the year, mom wanted to secure her session early. I always recommend reserving your newborn session early as I do tend to book up months in advance. It really is never too early to reserve your due date!

Baby Sam was such a good baby for his newborn session. He was especially good when his big sister Hannah was snuggling him during sibling poses. Hannah is a little mama and you could tell just how much she loves her new baby brother. Capturing the tender moments with older siblings is always so nice to look back on and remember when your children were first growing their sibling bond.

Hannah loves music and dancing; she adores all animals but has a special love for dogs. As a family, Katie, George, Hannah and now sweet little Sam, spend as much time as they can together outdoors enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful nature that is all around them.

Mom requested blue and gray colors together. Sam looked so handsome in all the soft, muted colors and tones that I used for his baby pictures. Baby Sam slept so sweet and so sound nearly his entire newborn session that I barely remember him making those sweet newborn sounds. He was so handsome and so tiny and I adored being his newborn photographer!
