Theodore Swaddled Baby Photos – Stratford CT Newborn Photography

Hi There! Thank you so much for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Newborn Photographer. I’m so glad you’re going to stay a while and browse around the blog and my website. I am a professional newborn and family photographer with a beautiful portrait 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. Here is a little peek into Theodore’s Simply Swaddled Newborn Session.

Theodore Swaddled Baby Photos – Stratford CT Newborn Photography

Erica and Jeffrey travelled over an hour and a half away from Stratford Connecticut in Fairfield County with their newborn son Theodore for his Simply Swaddled Newborn Session. They booked their newborn session and several weeks later they welcomed their baby boy making them a new family of three.

The Simply Swaddled Newborn Session is the perfect option for parents wishing to capture a smaller collection of images of their precious newborn baby. The session is designed to capture your newborn baby swaddled and wrapped in a few simple prop set ups. The set ups are simple and the swaddling is precious. Mom wanted to go for a very natural look using beige, white and neutral colors used for the session set ups, and I think they were the perfect selections. For some color ideas for your upcoming session, please visit my Newborn Gallery.

Getting to know my clients is something that I love doing before and during our session because not only do I enjoy meeting new people but for the time we are together during your session, I become a part of your family capturing all your tender family moments. Erica shared a little bit with me about her husband and herself before their newborn session.

My husband, Jeff and I have been together for almost 11 years and have been married for just over two. We met at college in NY and have been together ever since. We are so incredibly excited to meet our little boy and start our family! Jeff is a nurse at Yale Hospital and I used to work in fashion as a buyer for years until I decided to join my families business last year. We love traveling, especially to Italy! We love Italian red wines and basically any type of food with truffle! LOL! We find ourselves watching shows like the Office, Friends, Grace & Frankie, and Stranger Things. We are Netflix junkies at its finest. Jeff is amazing at carpentry and is currently remodeling our bathroom in his spare time. He loves to work with wood and build things. We love to take walks together, go out to eat, visit wineries, and hang out with family and friends! We look forward to sharing many more adventures as a family of three!

Theodore was a good baby for his very first photoshoot. He was a sleepy baby and snoozed straight through his entire session and I captured him and all his handsomeness for his mom and dad along with their first professional family photo. They are such a beautiful family!
