Family and Children Photographer | Family of Three

Chicago Family and Children Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photographer

With all this warm weather coming this weekend, I thought it was fitting to post some images from a session I photographed on a warm June morning. Now, we’re not reaching June temperatures, but for February, we are going to be in for a treat.

I met this beautiful family at Horner Park. Their little girl was turning one and mom and dad wanted to make sure they had images to commemorate the important milestone. Her smile made this already sunny day, even brighter.

Child Photographer | 6 Months and Happy

Chicago Family and Children Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

This very happy 6 month old came by the studio and made my job very easy. He was so cooperative and happy, that I was able to get great shots in the first 20 minutes. It didn’t matter if he was sitting up or on his back, the smiles were endless. They were very contagious, too!

When I think of Valentine’s Day a few words come to mind. So, as I perused my photos on Facebook, I picked out a few images, 44 to be exact. Why 44? It was my 44th birthday, yesterday.

Kisses

Flowers

Last but not least, Love!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I met these new parents during their maternity session. As they arrived for the newborn session, they were beaming. So proud and happy to introduce their new baby girl. She was beautiful. A precious gift.

These parents-to-be came by the studio to preserve some memories before their lives changed forever. No longer will they be, a couple, but soon a family.

Child Photographer | 1 Year Session & Cake Smash

Chicago Family and Children Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

This little lady was so cooperative, we were able to use numerous backdrops for her 1 year session. We started off with the bedpost backdrop. I really like this one and wish I had the opportunity to use it more.

We followed it up with a swirly heart backdrop. The smiles were still coming.

The cake smash was the big finale and she didn’t disappoint. Frosting on the face and in the hair, sure signs of a successful session.

Baby Photographer | 5 Month Session

Chicago Family and Children Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

It’s not too often that I have the opportunity to photograph a 5 month old. I usually see the brand new babies at the newborn session and again in 6 months. Then there’s the ever so important 1 year photos. On occasion, I’ll photograph a baby every 3 months. Capturing all those little changes throughout the months.

I visited this adorable 5 month old at his house. We first got a few shots in mom and dad’s room. Where there was great light pouring in through the sliding glass doors.

We then checked out the baby’s room. I wasn’t sure how he would like being in his crib when it wasn’t nap time. He really didn’t mind and we even got a game of peek-a-boo in, while finishing our session together.
