Maternity Photographer |Out of Town Guests

Chicago Maternity and Newborn Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photographer

This expecting mother was in town from Washington, D.C., for her baby shower. So, she figured while she was in Chicago she would have maternity pictures taken. I was fortunate to be the chosen photographer. We took full advantage of the available window light and got a little artistic with the studio lighting.

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.

In-home Newborn Session

Chicago Newborn Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

Even before this little guy came into the world, his parents knew they wanted an in-home newborn session. I was more then happy to accommodate their needs. So, the session was scheduled and off I went on a rather cold and snowy day. These new parents could not have made a wiser choice, then to stay in their nice and cozy home with their new baby boy.

It’s always nice to have a sleepy baby during the session. Though, at times that is not always the case. For this particular session, it was the best of both worlds, sleepy baby at times and other times a wide awake baby. It allowed me to grab a variety of images.

I’m a Big Sister! | Newborn Session with a Sibling

Chicago Newborn Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

It is always fun to see how a child reacts to having a new baby brother or sister. So many changes to adjust to and comprehend. Once the center of attention, needing to now share the spotlight. It’s not always the easiest thing to accept. However, what is lost in being the only child is gained ten fold by being a sibling. Having a friend for life, is priceless.

It was very clear when photographing these sisters, that the bond was already strong. The kisses on the forehead and the need to give hugs, was a clear indication that this big sister loves her new baby sister.

How Quickly A Year Goes By | 1 year session with cake smash

Chicago Family and Children Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

Last April, I had a brand new baby girl visit the studio. I was able to capture a photo that I always wanted to take of my own children, but never did. I was so happy to have had the opportunity to give this family such a memorable image.

Before I knew it, she was back for her 1 year session. Where did the time go? How quickly the year went by. She no longer fit in her Dad’s fire helmet.

We couldn’t have a 1 year session without a cake smash. She loved every minute of it. From the first taste of frosting…
