Samantha’s Couture Maternity Photos – Maternity Photographer Connecticut

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Maternity Photographer CT. As a highly sought after Maternity & Newborn Photographer throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, I believe in documenting your pregnancy and celebrate bringing your baby into the world with beautifully, artistic pregnancy photos to treasure forever. Maternity photography is among my favorite sessions to photograph. When a client schedules a maternity session, not only am I documenting these fleeting moments for them, but I am capturing their beautiful moments as new parents-to-be. For Samantha and Richard this is a glimpse into their beautiful journey into parenthood.

Samantha’s Couture Maternity Photos – Maternity Photographer Connecticut

Samantha, a beautiful mom-to-be contacted me back in June for their maternity and newborn sessions and booked the Heirloom Maternity Session and Treasured Newborn Session to capture these very special moments for her and Dad-to-be, Richard. With their baby girl due to arrive in August, we got started planning their maternity session right away. Samantha and I met prior to her maternity session so she could try on maternity gowns at the studio. She chose form fitting maternity gowns in white, pink and eggplant purple and she looked absolutely stunning in them!

As outdoor lovers, especially loving the beach, it was no surprise that we planned for the session to be outdoors in the elements of nature. The beautiful lush greens on the grass and trees gave the perfect backdrop. Without a doubt, mama-to-be looked so serene in these moments that I captured of her and of them together. Not only did I capture the very essence that she carries as a new mother nurturing her unborn baby, but I captured the love that Richard has for his unborn baby girl.

The studio wardrobe is carefully curated with beautiful maternity gowns from Sew Trendy Accessories to fit the couture and boutique style of maternity photography. Clients always love having a beautiful selection of dresses and gowns to choose from to use for their pregnancy photos. I am always happy to include these as part of scheduling your maternity session with Melissa Hartigan Photography. Having a maternity gown wardrobe leaves my maternity clients with one less expense to worry about for the day of their photography session. They can come to their session having been pampered, feeling as beautiful as ever and ready to capture these fleeting moments.
