Sweet & Simple Baby Callum – Middlesex County Newborn Photography

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – Newborn Photographer CT. I’m so glad you’re here to read my recent blog post, and browse around the blog. If this is your first time visiting my website, welcome. If you are visiting again to see all the sweet new babies and families that I have photographed, welcome back! I’m a professional newborn photographer with a beautiful studio in Coventry, Connecticut 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 blog post of a handsome baby boy from Middlesex County CT. Here is a little peek into Callum’s custom newborn photography session.

Sweet & Simple Baby Callum – Middlesex County Newborn Photography

Sandy and Bruce were so excited to start growing their family and they didn’t want to pass up the opportunity for newborn and family photos. They booked the Sweet and Simple Newborn Session for their baby boy Callum’s first professional photography session. The Sweet & Simple Newborn Session is the perfect package for clients who wish to have a smaller selection of images from their session to treasure forever. When your proofing gallery is delivered, clients always have the option and are welcome to upgrade and purchase additional images, if they wish to, and that is exactly what Sandy and Bruce did when they received their proofing gallery.

Handsome little Callum was due to arrive earth side in the middle of June, but decided he was eager to meet his mama and dad earlier and he was born weeks before his due date. When Sandy and Bruce brought him into the MHP studio for his newborn session, he was such a tiny little fella. Posing him and capturing all the sweet newborn poses was so easy, he was so good for his newborn session that he slept in sweet slumber the entire time and he never made a peep. He was adorable and I just wanted to snuggle him.

Sandy and Bruce are both drawn to nature and animals and they love spending time together. Sandy is originally from the Adirondack region of upstate New York and Bruce is from Ontario, Canada. They are both athletic and each have their own sport they play and participate in keeping them active; Sandy rows competitively and Bruce plays hockey. When they aren’t playing their own sports and spending time together out in nature, they can be found snuggling their handsome baby boy Callum. Instead of capturing a traditional family pose, mom and dad opted to for a close up intimate capture of them holding their baby boy snuggled in their arms. And, I think it turned out perfect!

Mom selected teal and gray colors to be used into the session setups and I must say that Callum looked absolutely dapper in all the colors, and textures and props that were used. There is something that screams fresh about teal and gray colors with baby boys that I adore.

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 teenager 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 that when anyone looks at a photo I have taken they see and know this.

When you are looking to book your newborn session, it is recommended to secure your newborn session preferably before baby arrives to ensure an opening for when your little one does make their appearance. Ideally, it is best to book when you are in your second trimester. When you book your newborn session, you may also consider adding on a maternity session to your newborn booking and we can capture beautiful serene maternity pictures to remember your pregnancy by.

For some color ideas for your upcoming session, please visit my Newborn Gallery. It’s always my pleasure provide to props for your newborn session from some of the best newborn photography prop vendors in the industry. Here are some of my favorites that I used for Callum’s newborn photo session: No. 2 Willow LaneLittle Bean CreationsRoses and RufflesRed Owl Photo PropsPooks and Lulu.
