Melissa Hartigan Photography based in Connecticut specializes in custom newborn photography.
I would love nothing more than to be your newborn’s first photographer, capturing all of their newness. This time is so fleeting, newborns change daily. Capturing this time allows you to freeze these precious moments in time, to have and to cherish for your lifetime. I have been trained in the art of newborn posing, this has given me extensive knowledge in baby safety and soothing techniques. Your baby will be safe and comfortable throughout the entire session.

All newborn sessions take place in my private Coventry Connecticut studio. I also offer in hospital sessions within the first 48 hours of baby’s life, these sessions are available upon request. For examples of these Fresh48 sessions please click here.
Upon booking your session, we will have a pre-session consultation either in person, on the phone, or through email. This will help me learn more about your style preferences and vision for your newborn session. From there I will get to work collecting props, and designing set-ups to bring this vision to life within my style of portraiture. The studio is full of a multitude of knits, headbands, a beautiful couture newborn wardrobe and props galore. It is best to reserve your session as early as possible – most clients contact me once they see two double lines on the pregnancy test.
During the session, you are welcome to sit back and relax. When I designed my studio, I had my clients’ comfort in mind. the studio is equipped with comfy furniture, calming music, beverages, and snacks. My goal is for you to feel at home and rest while I work my magic. Depending on the newborn session chosen, newborn sessions last approximately 1-3 hours, leaving plenty of time for feedings and soothing baby as needed.
