Stunning Studio Maternity Photos – Enfield CT Maternity Photography

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Maternity Photographer CT. Expecting a baby is such an exciting time in your life, and documenting your pregnancy is a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world while waiting for your baby to arrive. Maternity photography is among my favorite sessions to photograph. When a client schedules a maternity and newborn session with MHP, I am documenting their beautiful moments as new parents-to-be. For Kate, this is a little glimpse into her beautiful journey into parenthood.

Stunning Studio Maternity Photos – Enfield CT Maternity Photography

Kate is a gorgeous mama-to-be who contacted me to schedule her maternity portraits to capture her pregnancy. She booked the Heirloom Maternity Session to document this precious and fleeting moment in her life before meeting and bringing home her baby. Browsing the boutique collection of maternity dresses and gowns in the studio closet, Kate selected her favorite three beautiful gowns to wear and they were absolutely stunning on her! The maternity gowns she borrowed were so beautiful on her and her studio maternity portraits were captured so perfectly. The studio closet is filled with maternity dresses and gowns from Sew Trendy Accessories which specializes in boutique and couture style maternity gowns for maternity photography. They are available to all maternity clients to borrow from during their session.

Pre-Photo Session Pampering – CT Maternity Photography

The day prior to her maternity session, Kate treated herself and had a little pre-session pampering done; getting her hair, makeup and nails done. As a professional portrait photographer that specializes in capturing the beautiful pregnant form of a new mama-to-be, I always suggest a day of pampering for my expectant clients before their maternity session. From manicures and pedicures, to a day at the salon with a hair stylist and makeup artist, it can really bring out the very essence of how an expectant mother-to-be feels about herself. It’s no surprise that when a mama feels her absolute best, it shines through during the maternity session and onto her finished maternity portrait, so why not pamper yourself!

Maternity Photographer in Connecticut

As a Connecticut Maternity Photographer, I get the pleasure everyday  of meeting expectant mamas, couples and families that will soon will be welcoming their new baby. Not only do I love being a maternity and newborn photographer, but I also love photographing babies of all ages and capturing all the baby milestones.  As quick as the pregnancy and newborn stages pass, so does a baby’s first year and all the different stages. It is so important to document these pregnancy memories with professional pictures before these maternity moments are over and gone forever.
