Timeless Maternity & Sweet & Simple Newborn – Maternity Newborn Photography CT

Hi There! Thank you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography – CT Maternity Newborn Photographer, and browsing around my recent blog post of Megan and Paul’s outdoor maternity photos and of their sweet baby girl Tallulah’s newborn photos. For those who are visiting for the first time, welcome. I’m a CT Maternity Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio located in Coventry, CT. I specialize in maternity, newborn, baby milestone, children and family photography. Expecting a baby is such an exciting time in your life, and documenting your pregnancy and newborn moments is such a wonderful way to celebrate bringing your baby into the world. Maternity and Newborn photography is among my favorite of sessions to photograph. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality images they can cherish forever of their pregnancy, new baby and as a family. When a client schedules their maternity and newborn sessions with MHP, I am documenting their beautiful moments as new parents. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable maternity and newborn moments for this new family of three.  Here is a little peek into this sweet family’s maternity and newborn sessions.

Megan and Paul found me on google searching for the right photographer to capture their pregnancy and their baby’s newborn photos perfectly. Expecting their first baby bundle, a baby girl, they reserved their baby’s newborn session with the Sweet & Simple Newborn Session as well as their maternity session with the Timeless Maternity Session.

The maternity session before I capture their baby pictures is typically when I get to meet my clients and we get to know each other during our time together. Learning about the couple I’m photographing is helpful for when I meet them at the hospital for their Fresh 48 Session or they come to my studio for their Newborn Session, we feel like old friends by the time I’m capturing their newborn images. I got to know Paul and found out that he is a huge Philly sports fanatic and Megan loves being with family and watching reality TV.

Maternity Photographer in Connecticut

As a Maternity Photographer in CT, I get the pleasure everyday of meeting expectant mamas, couples and families that will soon will be welcoming their new baby. During their sessions, Maternity clients are always welcome to browse the studio wardrobe and borrow anything during their maternity sessions. The studio wardrobe is carefully curated with beautiful maternity gowns to fit the couture and boutique style of maternity photography. Mamas have always appreciated having a selection of dresses and gowns to choose from for use during their sessions, and I am always happy to include these as part of scheduling your maternity session with Melissa Hartigan Photography. For Megan and Paul’s maternity session, Megan had a beautiful dress of her own for the session and it was perfect on her! She looked so gorgeous!

Simple & Timeless Newborn Photography

Tallulah was the sweetest baby girl when I met her for her Sweet & Simple Newborn Session. Mom wanted to capture her baby girl with very simple setups and newborn poses and wanted simple and timeless images. In keeping with mom’s request for simplicity, I only posed Tallulah on the bean bag and didn’t incorporate any props that I typically use and style with for the session. Soft pink and creams were used and they paired together perfectly. It’s an oh-so pretty color combination and it brings a kind of sweetness to a baby girl’s newborn picture that will make you think of her as so fresh, so new, so delicate, and it will just make you smile. Tallulah is such a beautiful baby girl!

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 when anyone looks at an image 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.
