Stella Beautiful Baby Pics – Newborn Photography Manchester

Introducing beautiful baby Stella. When new parents Taina and Brian were expecting their baby, they wanted to capture their baby’s newborn pictures and were referred by beloved clients of MHP. Connecting with me to capture this special time for them, they decided on the Sweet and Simple Newborn Session. When they arrived to my studio with their new baby girl, Stella, I immediately fell in love with her beautiful hair.

Stella was simply amazing for her newborn session. Sleeping so sound and barely making a peep, I was able to pose her so sweetly and capture adorable images for her mama and dad. When you book your newborn session, there is always so much planning and preparation that happens before the session day, and I always prepare new parents on what to expect for their newborn session. Mama said she followed my newborn preparation guide and was so thankful to have it so that she could best prepare Stella for her first professional photoshoot.

Apart from snuggling and loving their precious new baby girl, Taina and Brian love to travel, be active and go hiking or enjoy time working out.  They enjoy finding new breweries and vineyards to visit and tour, and are huge Dallas Cowboys fans and love spending their Sundays watching football. I’m so honored that I captured their newborn pictures for them.

Baby Girl Newborn Photos Pink & Cream Colors – Manchester Newborn Photography

Mama chose a beautiful color palate of soft pinks and creams for Stella’s newborn pictures. I really do love and adore this color combination for new baby girls because of how soft and delicate it pairs together. Stella looked absolutely darling in the soft baby pinks with the pretty and floral headbands. I knew she’d look amazing with all the pretty headbands to accentuate her luscious locks. Isn’t she gorgeous?!

The Newborn Session Experience with Melissa Hartigan Photography

As a boutique newborn photographer in CT, I love offering clients a multitude of color choices for their newborn sessions. Having the option to choose the colors and tones that go best with baby’s nursery, what colors work in your home, and which colors you love best is a just one piece of the whole newborn photoshoot process that new parents absolutely love to be a part of; and I am happy to offer that to my clients as part of their custom newborn photography session with MHP.

My goal is to give my clients beautiful photographs they can cherish forever, and an experience to remember why they chose custom photography with an experienced and professionally trained newborn photographer to capture their newborns photo memories. I would love the opportunity to capture your memories with a maternity session, fresh 48 hospital photos, studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.

Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautifully curated newborn prop collection and wardrobe to style and dress each newborn baby with. If you’re looking for some newborn props or color ideas for your upcoming newborn or baby milestone sessions with me, please check out my Newborn Gallery.
