Hi there! Thanks for dropping by Melissa Hartigan Photography and browsing around my blog. For those who are visiting for the first time, I’m an Ellington CT Newborn Photographer with a professional photography studio in Coventry, CT. I love to capture special events in people’s lives and give them heirloom quality photographs they can cherish forever of their new baby and as a family. I am so happy to be a part of these memorable moments for this family. Here is a little peek into Milo’s Newborn session.
Baby Milo Cherished Newborn Session – Ellington CT Newborn Photographer
Mary and Jared are a ‘live life to the fullest’ kind of couple who love to spend time outdoors with their 3 year old dog Bentley; exploring on hikes, spending time at the beach, visiting with friends, and their new favorite past-time is holding, cuddling and loving their new baby boy, Milo.
Mom was in her second-trimester in January when she got in touch with me and booked the client beloved Cherished Newborn Session to capture their baby’s newborn photos. Even though her baby’s due date wasn’t until July, she knew that she wanted to secure her session with Melissa Hartigan Photography well in advance. It’s always appreciated when clients book early, because then I can get to know my clients ahead of our session time together and it allows me plenty of time to design setups for their newborn session.
Baby’s Gender Kept a Surprise – Tolland County Baby Photographer
Milo’s parents didn’t know that they were going to welcome a son into the world when they booked their newborn session with me. In fact, they were keeping their baby’s gender a surprise until birth. About two weeks shy of baby’s due date, they no longer had to wait for the surprise because they welcomed their son, Milo, into their arms. Milo is an adorable baby with cheeks for days. And, oh my goodness, he’s got that newborn pout that will melt your heart!
Handsome Baby Boy with Grey and Navy Blue for Newborn Photos – Tolland County Newborn Photographer
Mom wanted grey and navy blue colors for Milo’s Newborn Session. I absolutely adore those colors and tones together because they are a true classic color combination and they will stand the test of time. Not to mention they work so well together for a baby boy’s newborn photos. I love him sleeping in the metal bucket with the navy blue sleepy hat on, and his little hand resting on his cheeks is way too adorable.
“Each picture is more precious than the last” – Cherished Newborn Session Client Review
Mary and Jared are so in love with all their photos of their baby boy Milo, and I am too. I love being a CT Newborn Photographer, and capturing new babies in an artistic way that clients will fall in love with their newborn photos more and more each time they look at them.
“I’m so happy we chose Melissa to take our newborn photos. She is not only talented & creative, but also patient & wonderful with children. She had our little one cooing and snuggly in his swaddle by the time we came over for the family picture.”
I’m always so honored when I get to create a tangible memory for my clients, but when Melissa Hartigan Photography becomes the lasting memory for my clients, as an artist that alone means the world to me – more than they could ever know.
Melissa Hartigan Photography has a beautiful curated newborn wardrobe to style each baby with. If you’re looking for some prop or color ideas, please check out my Newborn Gallery. For Milo’s session, I used outfits, hats and props from some of my favorite newborn prop vendors: No. 2 Willow Lane, Little Bean Creations, Roses and Ruffles, Red Owl Photo Props and Pooks and Lulu.
