Santino James Freshly Born – Manchester CT Hospital Baby Photographer

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Hospital Baby Photographer and browsing around my recent blog post of this newborn baby boy. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m a CT Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children 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 new family of four.  Here is a little peek into Santino James’ Fresh48 Hospital Session captured at Manchester Memorial Hospital.

The feeling of welcoming a baby into their arms is something that Lindsay and Paul will hang onto and cherish forever. It is a feeling like none other. That first newborn smell and that tiny little face that is so sweet, so fresh and so new; looking back at you will be the one memory that you will always remember about that very first moment you held your baby in your arms and met them for the first time. This is Lindsay and Paul’s first moments with their new baby together.

Meeting Baby Boy Santino James at Manchester Memorial Hospital

In the hours after Santino made his arrival earth side, I went to Manchester Memorial Hospital and met second time parents Lindsay and Paul in their hospital room for Santino’s Fresh48 Session that mom had booked to capture these special moments. Even though big brother Willie was not at the hospital for the Fresh48 session, I bet he couldn’t wait to meet his new baby brother!

It’s always a wonderful feeling meeting parents in their hospital room after their baby has been born and welcomed into their new family. It’s when all the tender love and emotion fills the room and the beautiful moments between baby and parents are so touching to capture. I love photographing Fresh48 Hospital Sessions and documenting these exciting and fleeting memories for growing families.

Melissa Hartigan Photography offers Fresh48 Hospital Sessions to those new parents-to-be wishing to capture those first moments after their baby is born and has been welcomed into their parents loving arms. Hospital baby photos are a great way to capture mom and dad snuggling and loving their new baby, older siblings meeting their new baby brother or sister for the very first time, grandparents and even great-grand parents meeting their grandchild. These sessions are intimate in nature because of the location of the session. Fresh48 Sessions take place in your hospital room before mama and baby have been discharged. They capture the intimate connection meeting your new baby and the very love that fills your heart – a kind of love you never knew existed before meeting your baby.
