Santino Posed Newborn Photos in Studio – Andover CT Newborn Photography

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by Melissa Hartigan Photography – Andover CT Newborn 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’s Cherished Newborn Session captured in my photography studio.

Santino Posed Newborn Photos in Studio – Andover CT Newborn Photography

In the hours after Santino made his arrival earth side and into the arms of his parents Lindsay and Paul, I had made my way to Manchester Memorial Hospital to capture Santino’s Fresh 48 Session. It was there that I got to meet this sweet family, meet their baby boy and capture these incredibly important moments for them. It wasn’t long after their Fresh 48 Hospital Session that they were welcomed into the studio for Santino’s Cherished Newborn Session.

Family is everything

“Family is not an important thing, it’s everything” and if there is one thing that I know about this sweet family is that they are truly blessed. I mean look at the beautiful family photos we captured of them in studio for Santino’s newborn session. Not only is Willie so proud to be a big brother but he melted my heart with the love he has for his new baby brother Santino.  That big smile he has on his face says it all, doesn’t it?!

Dad enjoys sports and music, Willie loves to dance and swim, and Mom enjoys the spending time at the beach and being together as a family. Each has their own things that they love to enjoy but when they come together the memories are plenty, the laughter is lots and the love as a family is united and never ending.

Blue, Gray, Cream Baby Boy Newborn Pictures – Newborn Photography Andover CT

Lindsay wanted blue, gray and cream colors incorporated into Santino’s newborn pictures, so those are the colors that I designed his newborn set-ups around. He looked so handsome in all the textures and soft color tones that we used in his session. I adore baby boys in blue and gray colors. There is something so classic and masculine about that color combination with brand new baby boys.
