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.

Hugs

Kisses

Candy

Flowers

Last but not least, Love!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

City Life | Maggie Daley Park

Maggie Daley Park opened in December of 2014. Our first visit was in the summer of 2015. Actually, make that our first, second and third visit. There was just too much to do and see.

Plenty of things to climb, slide down and swing on.

The Enchanted Forest is a great place to find some shade and to see yourself surrounded by a familiar face.

If you like a little friendly competition, then check out the mini-golf. The kids love the course and you’ll love the view.

There are plenty of opportunities to cool off.

But if you’re looking for more, then just take the bridge over to Millennium Park.

There you can really get a soaking at the Crown Fountain.

You will also have to make sure to check out The Bean (Cloud Gate).

So much fun, all in one place.

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.

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.
