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!

The Signs of Valentine’s Day

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.

Last but not least, Love!

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.

Baby Photography | In-home Cake Smash Session

Chicago Children and Family Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

Having a February birthday has always been a bit of a drag. As a kid, it would have been nice to celebrate a birthday in the great outdoors. Something about party games and cake cutting in freezing temperatures just never seemed very appealing.

So, it was nice to celebrate this little guys first birthday, with a cake smash session in his very own backyard. It was a beautiful, warm, May day.

We first grabbed a few shots inside before the cake began to fly outside. No one makes a bow tie look better then this cutie.

Newborn Session | Baby Boy

This little one was quite cooperative. He was nice and sleepy at the beginning of the session. He then woke up for a few shots at the end. Giving his mom and dad many images to choose from.

Child Photographer | Cake Smash Session

Chicago Professional Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

A cake smash session can go in any many directions. You may have a child that loves the taste of cake and frosting, so much so, they don’t even care about the feel of the stickiness between their fingers and toes. Then there are those that try to enjoy the sweetness, but just can’t get past the goo and grossness of it all. This 1 year old tried to have fun, but like his mother (my sister-in-law), could not handle the mess.

I’m sure my nephew will not appreciate these images when he’s older. I, on the other hand, will cherish them.
