Summer Baby Willa Kate – Hartford County Newborn Photographer

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Hartford County CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you are going to stay a while and browse around the blog. I am a professional portrait photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, CT dedicated to newborn photography, maternity photography and baby milestone photography. Not only do I absolutely love taking photos but I also adore being a part of these special moments in my client’s lives. I hope you enjoy this recent post of a precious baby girl who came to see me from Hartford County for her newborn session. Here is a little peek into Willa Kate’s Newborn Session.

Summer Baby Willa Kate – Hartford County Newborn Photographer

This past summer was an exceptional one for soon-to-be parents, Samantha and Richard. They love to be outdoors and go hiking, and I’m sure they enjoyed the outdoors while they awaited the arrival of their baby. Not only did we capture their pregnancy moments with their Heirloom Maternity Session back in July, but the following month they welcomed their first baby into the world, a beautiful baby girl they named Willa Kate. She was a sleepy baby for her session and she posed just perfectly!

Share the Love, Melissa Hartigan Photography Referrals

Samantha was referred to me to capture her pregnancy and newborn moments by a client of mine whose session I had previously captured. As a small business owner, a referral is one of the biggest and best compliments that an artist could ever receive. Photography is art and on any level is a personal choice, and I always put my heart into each and every one of my client’s sessions and images giving it my personal touch. Having a client of yours connect with your art so much that they share the love with their family, friends, acquaintances, and even other moms looking for a Maternity, Newborn, Milestone or Family Photographer, it really means the world to me. I am so very touched for all the referrals that clients, family and friends give to me and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

About Melissa Hartigan Photography

When you book a session with Melissa Hartigan Photography, I give you MY ALL, before, during and long after your session has come and gone. I am NOT the photographer that starts a stop watch at the beginning of your session. I am NOT the photographer that will ever rush. I am NOT the photographer that will give up when I know how important a certain capture is to a client.

I AM the photographer that wants to capture your newborn, child, senior teen or family as they are the day of your session. I love my job. Capturing moments and freezing memories in time to cherish always. It truly makes my heart full and so happy. I hope when anyone looks at an image I have taken they see and know this to be true.

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, a studio newborn photography session, your baby’s milestones throughout their first year or your family photographs to update year after year.
