Hello! Thank-you for visiting Melissa Hartigan Photography and viewing my most recent blog post. For those who are new to my blog, I’m a CT Newborn Photographer with a studio in Coventry, CT. I love to capture special memories in people’s lives and give them beautiful photographs they can cherish forever. I am so happy to be a part of these families special time and truly hope you enjoy this recent post. Here is a little peek into my recent Newborn Session with the beautiful Claire.

CT Newborn Photographer – Claire Newborn Session

Mom Melissa contacted Melissa Hartigan Photography for a Newborn Session.  I was honored that she choose me to be their CT Newborn Photographer to capture this special moment in her life. Since I like to custom design every session, I like to talk or meet with my clients before their session. There we can discuss my client’s style preferences and vision for their photos.  We were unable to meet prior to the session, so we communicated through email. Mom completed my client session questioner which helped me plan her session once baby arrived. 

Claire was so little and perfect. She made the cutest expressions while I posed her. I love all her smiles and pouty lips. Even though she was a great sleeper, I loved the shot I got of her awake in the white wooden bowl. She had such beautiful eyes. I was happy that I got a few different outfits changes with Claire in the froggy pose. Just look at those cheeks. For other posing ideas, check out my Pinterest Page. 

I always encourage photos posed with the parents. Unfortunately Dad Brian was not able to attend the session, but I got some beautiful photos of Claire and her Mom. She looked so cuddly and loved in her Mom’s arms.  I absolutely love being a CT Newborn Photographer and love that families choose me to capture these special moments in their lives.

Mom chose Purple and Cream.

Mom chose the colors Cream and Purple for Claire’s Newborn Session.  Claire’s skin looked dreamy against the different shades of purple.  I loved putting her in the purple wrap with the floral headband.  She also looked like a princess in my tiny tiara.  In addition, the props I hand selected worked perfectly for her. She looked especially cute sleeping in the metal bucket and little wooden crate.

Melissa Hartigan Photography has an extensive prop collection and a beautiful couture newborn wardrobe. Parents don’t need to worry about props or setups for their baby because I have it all covered. Clients just need to tell me the colors they would like to see used and from there I custom style their newborn session. Check out my Newborn Gallery for some posing and color ideas. For Claire’s session, I used outfits, headbands, hats and props from No. 2 Willow Lane, Little Bean Creations, Roses and RufflesRed Owl Photo Props and Pooks and Lulu.

I hope you enjoy this little peek into her session, Melissa Melissa Hartigan Photography, CT Newborn Photographer in Coventry, Connecticut ~ Newborn, Maternity, Baby, Children and Family Photographer
