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.

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.

This sisters decided they would take turns napping through the session. There was a brief, very brief window, in which they both had their eyes closed. To say the least, I took full advantage of the few minutes I was given. These images give you an idea of how the closeness between these sisters did not end once they were out of the womb.

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…

to the last mouthful of cake. There was a smile from ear to ear!

Chicago Children and Family Photographer | Sharon Gaietto Photography

Back in June of last year, I had the opportunity to take newborn portraits for a lovely family, at the studio.  It was their first child, a baby boy.
