That would be an hour session with 10 digital images for only $300. Even better, $25 from each session will be divided between two organizations. The first is Sit Stay Read, a Chicago organization with a mission to advance children's literacy skills using an engaging curriculum, dedicated volunteers, and certified dogs. I can't think of better way to learn than to have a dog by your side. The second is Open Books, a Chicago organization that provides readers of all ages with engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books. Each week, they deliver thousands of books to schools and nonprofits across Chicagoland.

So, let's celebrate these hardworking Seniors and help others on their road to success.

Nominate Someone for a Free Session https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/4/nominate-someone-for-a-free-session Do you know someone who deserves a free photo session? Someone who doesn't think of themselves and is always helping others. Maybe it's that family member that is always taking photos for the family, but rarely get into a picture themselves. I'm looking for a special person, couple, or family, to gift a free session. All you have to do is email me (smgaietto@gmail.com) and explain why your nominee deserves a free session. I will be choosing a winner on Saturday.

Today's 1/2 Off Print (4/5/21) https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/4/todays-1/2-off-print-4/5/21 When you think of famous magicians and Illusionists, names like Harry Houdini, David Copperfield and David Blaine come to mind. As a kid, I was a big fan of Doug Henning. I don't know if it was his flashy outfits or the fact he resembled a rabbit, but whatever it was, he had a fan in me. So, in the spirit of "Magic and Illusion", my prints this week will be highlighting some photo magic.

Today's 1/2 off print is a combination of two images. The city skyline was taken from the North Pond and the moon image was taken from my back deck.

Two Session for the Price of One! https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/two-session-for-the-price-of-one We're all familiar with the phrase, "The luck of the Irish." Well, I'm not only Irish (51%, Ancestry.com told me so), but I'm also very lucky! I am so fortunate to have families that trust me, year after year, with their family photos.

To say Thank You, I have a very special offer for returning clients. For the first five people (returning clients) that purchase a full session (1 hour session with 10 images for $350), they will receive a FREE 30 minute session that includes 3 images.

You can keep that free session for yourself or give to someone else as a gift. Schedule your sessions anytime this year or wait until next year. Email (smgaietto@gmail.com) or message me before this awesome offer is over!

Today's 1/2 Off Print (3/15/21) https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/todays-1/2-off-print-3/15/21 I really wanted the theme for this week's 1/2 off prints to be pictures that I have taken in Ireland. Sadly, I have never visited the Emerald Isle. So, instead I decided to highlight lighthouses this week. Ireland has over 100 lighthouses (active and nonactive). Hopefully, I'll get a chance to photograph a few of them in the future.

Win a Photo Outing with Me! https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/win-a-photo-outing-with-me This week I'm giving away a photo outing with me! That might not sound overly appealing, but I think it could be lots of fun. I know a little about photography and I'm happy to share my knowledge. So, all depending on your interests, I'll take you to one of my favorite spots in the city to photograph. Maybe it's birds, or flowers, or cityscapes, whatever the subject might be, we'll undoubtedly get some great shots.

Here's what you need to do: Send me an email (smgaietto@gmail.com) letting me know that you're interested. I will take names of those interested until Friday (March 12th). On Saturday, I will announce the winner, which will be chosen randomly. My go to is usually drawing from a hat.

So, if you want to learn a little about photography and spend some time with a pretty nice person, then be sure to send me an email!

1% for the Planet - Friends of the Chicago River https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/1-for-the-planet---friends-of-the-chicago-river My 6th and final organization that I will be donating to this year through my 1% for the Planet contributions is Friends of the Chicago River.

"Since 1979, Friends has been working to improve the health of the Chicago River system for the benefit of people, plants and animals; and by doing so, has laid the foundation for the river to be a beautiful, continuous, and easily accessible corridor of open space in the Chicago region." - Friends of the Chicago River

I have enjoyed the Chicago River for years. Living just a couple blocks from the North Branch, I have gone on countless trips to the river to photograph wildlife. I have also strolled along the Riverwalk and photographed the breathtaking cityscape. The river has provided a unique beauty to Chicago that many cities do not have the pleasure of having.

1% for the Planet - Urban Growers Collective https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/1-for-the-planet---urban-growers-collective The 5th organization that I am supporting this year through my 1% for the Planet contributions is Urban Growers Collective.

Urban Growers Collective works closely with more than 33 community partners. Their goal is to build economic opportunity for youth while mitigating food insecurity and limited access to high quality, affordable, and nutritionally-dense food. They operate eight urban farms on 11 acres of land, predominantly located on Chicago’s South Side. The farms are production-oriented but also offer opportunities for staff-led education, training, leadership development, and food distribution. Each farm utilizes organic growing methods, intensive growing practices, and year-round production strategies to best maximize growing space.

Since, my family started composting (with WasteNot Compost) I have become more aware of the amount of food we waste. Since we collect all the food that would normally be thrown in the trash and place it in a bin to be composted, I get to see how much we collect. It's nice to know that now that food is being composted and not left to sit in a landfill. It makes me sad to think about the amount of food we did not rescue. Composting has given me a new appreciation for food and where it comes from, how it is grown and who benefits from growing it and/or making it.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes is a nonpartisan nonprofit working across the region to protect our most precious resource: the fresh, clean, and natural waters of the Great Lakes. The Alliance for the Great Lakes connects and empowers people to advocate, give back, and take action to protect the lakes.

I have spent my whole life enjoying Lake Michigan. As a kid my family would go to West Beach in Indiana during the summer and spend hours playing in the waves and sand. As a young adult, I was introduced to Pentwater, Michigan. A place where the waters of the lake look so pristine and the sunsets are extraordinary. Today, I have the pleasure of living near the lake and enjoying the beauty and endless picture perfect opportunities it offers.

1% for the Planet - Gateway to the Great Outdoors https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2021/3/1-for-the-planet---gateway-to-the-great-outdoors I recently joined 1% for the Planet, an organization that connects individuals and businesses with highly vetted environmental nonprofit organizations. I joined as an individual member and have pledged to donate 1% of my sales from Sharon Gaietto Photography (though I plan to give more). Since, I'm a one woman show, I am able to promote 1% for the Planet through my business as an individual member. All this week, I'll be highlighting the organizations that I will be supporting this year.

Today's organization is Gateway to the Great Outdoors. GGO partners with low-income public schools (currently in Chicago, IL and St. Louis, MO) to provide extensive environmental, outdoor, and STEAM education. GGO’s curriculum combines hands-on, inquiry-based classroom STEAM instruction, and nature-based outings & overnight trips, with year-round mentorship provided by university students. GGO partners directly with the classroom science teachers to assure that the curriculum augments traditional classroom learning.

Being a former teacher, this organization appealed to me because I know how powerful education is and how important positive personal experiences can have on a child. My fondest memories of being a teacher were the field trips I took my students on. Being able to expose them to activities that they might not have otherwise experienced was extremely rewarding.

Week 10 - Weekly Photo Challenge https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/4/week-10---weekly-photo-challenge My apologies for not getting out our new topic for the weekly photo challenge. I know how many of you were probably waiting in anticipation for the announcement. 😆This week share your sunrise and sunset pictures. As always, I ask that you share pictures that you take during the week, but if you have past sunrise/sunset pictures that you love and want to share, please do. You just can't have enough sunrise/sunset pictures. I've shared a sunset picture I took last summer in Pentwater, Michigan. Be sure to use #sgpwpc

Inspirational Photographer #2 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/4/inspirational-photographer-2 The second photographer you should be following on Instagram, is Paul Nicklen Photography. He is a Canadian photographer, filmmaker and marine biologist. His underwater photography and images from the polar regions are breathtaking. His storytelling will transport you to the moment he captured his beautiful images. While, reminding us all how fragile our planet is and how it needs everyone to make an effort in caring for it.

He said to let him know when SHADOWS was the photo topic of the week. He had a good shot. Well I thought, no better time than the present. So, this week it’s all about SHADOWS. Here’s a bird’s eye picture of Riot. I swear those ears could poke an eye out! Be sure to use #sgpwpc, so I can find your photos.

Inspirational Website #5 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/4/inspirational-website-5 #5 - I find photographing nature very inspirational. I also find if very peaceful. During these times, finding some peace is very important. Humor is also helpful. So, I thought the perfect website would be Comedy Wildlife Photography. I hope these photos bring a smile to your face.

Inspirational Website #4 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/4/inspirational-website-4 #4 - I love photographing the moon, especially Super Moons. I have photographed a lunar eclipse, a solar eclipse, meteor showers, and views of the Milky Way. Some more successful than others. Photographing the night skies can be tricky, but very rewarding.

I thought it would be fun to share a website with you from NASA. Put in your birthdate and they will show you an image taken by the Hubble Telescope on your birthday. How cool is that?! If you share it on social media be sure to use the #Hubble30, to help celebrate Hubble's 30th birthday.

Pictured below is what the Hubble Telescope saw on my birthday, February 13, back in 2011.

Week 8 - Weekly Photo Challenge https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/4/week-8---weekly-photo-challenge Week 8 of SGP's Weekly Photo Challenge starts today! This week the topic is CREATIVITY. We have all had our lives turned upside down, yet we have adapted. Many have found creative ways to adjust their lives to our current situation. Maybe you are creating beautiful art or finding ways to create meaningful time with the family. Whatever, you're doing share it with us, using the #sgpwpc. We are getting creative in the kitchen, and when I say we, I mean Sydney and Morgan. They made homemade bread with the help from their Aunt Jaime. It was delicious!

I would also like to congratulate Barbara Lane for winning March's drawing. You get to pick a gift card of your choosing (preferably a small business). I would also like to double the amount from $15 to $30. Thank you to everyone that participated in March! You can see the drawing on SGP's Instagram Story.

Inspirational Website #1 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/inspirational-website-1 This week I thought I would share a few websites that inspire me as a photographer.

#1 - When I was a kid, I had a subscription to National Geographic. I was not a big reader, so many of the articles went unread. However, I loved looking at the pictures. I would flip through the magazine and dream about being a National Geographic photographer.

Though, we are unable to travel, hopefully this inspires you to start dreaming of future destinations. I know I am!

Activity Suggestion #5 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/activity-suggestion-5 Back in the day, we would print pictures and then put them in photo albums. Sadly, like so many others, I have gotten out of the habit of printing pictures. While many of us are staying home, going through those old photo albums, might be the pick-me-up we all need. Sharing the stories behind the photos will be a nice way to spend time with the family.

Activity Suggestion #4 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/activity-suggestion-4 This one might be a little tough, but I think it will be good for the soul. We all like to look forward to things. Right? So, I thought a nice way to pass the time would be to create a Summer Bucket List. The last couple years I have shared my list with you, around the first day of summer. I figured I would give you a sneak peek at that list, to hopefully inspire you to start one of your own. If you get around to making one, please feel free to share. I always love to see what fun things people plan for the summer.

1. The 312 River Run - the longest pedestrian riverfront bridge in the city
2. Chicago's Yellow Brick Road - located at Humboldt Boulevard and Wabansia Avenue to honor L. Frank Baum, who wrote “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” while living at 1667 N. Humboldt Blvd. in 1899.
3. Chicago Truborn - located at 1741 W. Chicago Ave., from their homepage, "Established in 2011, Chicago Truborn has supported local, emerging, and established artists for years. Often times referred to as the “anti” gallery, we are dedicated to supporting street/urban/graffiti artists. We think you’ll see and feel the difference the moment you walk in." Admission is FREE!

Activity Suggestion #3 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/activity-suggestion-3 Idea #3 - It's been 10 days since the kids and I have left the house. They've been in the backyard, but that's about it. I have been very torn about going anywhere. I don't want to be part of the problem and I have been hearing that people have been flocking to the parks in large numbers. So, when it comes to trying to get some fresh air and a chance to stretch the legs, finding anywhere walking distance from the house has become challenging.

The Forest Preserves of Cook County has 700,000 acres to explore. It is one of the oldest and largest forest preserve districts in the U.S. We headed over to LaBagh Woods and walked along the North Branch Trail. We were able to keep our distance and enjoy the warmth of the sun, on what ended up being a very nice spring day.

To find a little extra space to move around, check out a Forest Preserve near you.

Activity Suggestion #2 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/activity-suggestion-2 Idea #2 - Work on those photo books you have been putting off. Whether, it's a past vacation, an important celebration, a gift for the grandparents or just taking all those virtual photos and putting them in safe place, like a book, now is your chance!

 

There are plenty of companies out there that offer photo books. I have been pleased with Shutterfly for my personal photo books. The quality and ease of making the books are just a few of the reasons why I choose to use Shutterfly.

 

I also like the fact that I can make as many books as I want and keep them in the "My Projects" section of my Shutterfly account. This allows you to purchase books at your convenience. If you are not dealing with a deadline, I recommend you wait for a sale. Shutterfly, often offers 50% off photo books and on occasion offers free pages. I can not emphasize enough the money you can save by taking advantage of these offers. All depending on the size of your book and the extras (like flat pages) you take advantage of, you can save hundreds of dollars!

 

I am sharing the link to my Road Trip 2019 book, if you would like to take a look.

Week 7 - Weekly Photo Challenge https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/week-7---weekly-photo-challenge It's week 7 of SGP's Weekly Photo Challenge. I thought a good topic this week would be HOME. You can take this topic as literally or figuratively as you would like. I'm sharing a picture of my kitchen island. No matter the celebration (Baptism, Birthday, Graduation, etc.), family and friends always gather around this island. It is where we share food and conversation. I look forward to when I can bring out the chips, dips and of course the Port Wine Cheese and crackers (Kris Kamper). Share your pictures of HOME and be sure to use the #sgpwpc.

Activity Suggestion #1 https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/activity-suggestion-1 This week I thought I would share some ideas to pass the time. First up, is puzzle time. A couple years ago my family celebrated my Dad’s 80th Birthday in the Outer Banks. The house we rented had this small table, perfectly placed between the kitchen and the living room. It quickly became the puzzle table. The puzzle was there for anyone to work on it, whenever they wanted to work on it. Some would only spend a few minutes, while others took a little more time. Completing that puzzle was a group effort, even though we never all worked on it at the same time. We’re bringing that same concept home. We put a card table in the kitchen and everyone just works on the puzzle at their leisure. The theme of our puzzle is Chicago. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.

I thought a good topic for this week would be THANKFUL. I know during difficult times, we are all thankful for friends and family. I'm curious as to what things you may be thankful for while isolating yourself from the rest of the world. Is it a good book? A hot cup of coffee? I'm thankful for my camera. Share pictures of things you are thankful for. Don't forget to use the #sgpwpc. Thanks John Gaietto for the picture.

Taking a Break https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/3/taking-a-break I know this is a very uncertain time and many are doing whatever they can to keep themselves and their families healthy. I realize the last thing on anyone's mind is having professional pictures taken. So, I will be taking a little break from my weekly specials and deals. I will continue my weekly photo challenge, in hopes it can serve as a small distraction.

As a photographer, my main purpose is to provide documentation, to produce images that will tell a story and hopefully, be shared for generations to come. So, I encourage everyone to take pictures during this historic event. Document how you and your family are dealing with this life changing occurrence. As someone who is very interested in genealogy and family history, this information will be invaluable to future generations. I will be taking pictures and sharing them with you. Please feel free to tag me on Facebook (Sharon Gaietto Photography) or Instagram (@SharonGaiettoPhotography) your photos. I would love to see how others are dealing with the seclusion, the stress, the extra time with family. I will also be sure to throw in some pictures, not related to Covid-19, just to give you a break in your news feed.

I know we will all get through this together and hopefully end up being better as a result. Stay healthy!

Digital Photography Workshops https://www.sharongaiettophotography.com/blog/2020/2/digital-photography-workshops Looking to take control of your camera? Tired of shooting on Auto? Sharon Gaietto Photography offers Digital Photography Workshops that will help you take your photography to the next level!

This week, I am offering a two-part workshop for 1/2 the cost! Normally, this 4 hour workshop is $250, but for the first 5 people that purchase the workshop, it's only $125!

The workshop includes:
1. The first two hour workshop covers the ins and outs of your camera. It will help you understand aperture, shutter speed and ISO and how they work together to produce a properly exposed picture.
2. The second two hour workshop will take you out into the field and put everything you learned into practice.
(both workshops will be scheduled on two different days)

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to improve your photography skills or the skills of someone you love. These workshops make the perfect gift for the photography lover in your life.

The Workshop Special will either go to the first 5 purchasers or will end on Friday, February 21st, whichever comes first!
