Sara Hilton Photography | Palatine IL Family Photographer » Artistic photographer specializing in family and children portraits serving the Palatine Illinois and surrounding Chicago suburbs.

I was excited to meet this couple last fall.  They were expecting a Christmas baby, and she told me she was wearing her own maternity gown for the photos.  I absolutely love gowns in photos, so I was thrilled to see her dress in person!  We met at Buffalo Creek, one of my very favorite locations for outdoor photos.  The sun was perfect, the weather was warm, and the couple was as cute as can be.  They allowed me to capture all the up close details, and I am so thrilled with the results.

A lot of families want to cancel photos if the forecast calls for rain.  Luckily, this one didn’t cancel!  Rain can actually bring out all the colors in the area, and add a certain amount of atmosphere and depth to your images.  As long as the rain is light, and there is some sheltered areas, a photo session can be so successful!  The bonus is that during heavier rain, we were able to stop to get some fudge and coffee.  Enjoy the images of this family in beautiful Historic Long Grove.

I absolutely love photographing graduating seniors!  These sessions bring me back to when I got my own portraits taken.  I like to think it wasn’t that long ago!  I do remember every moment, from picking my outfits, to finding the perfect location.  There is something special about this time in your life, and I do everything I can to make sure I capture your personality.  As a senior portrait photographer, I take a very laid back approach to your session.  No strange posing, no awkward moments, just fun.  To kick off the new year of graduates, I’m offering a special for early birds:

These photos make me so happy!  This photogenic family hired me in September to take their little girl’s one year photos, and we picked an adorable local farm to do them.  The light was beautiful, the night was warm, and the structures and landscape were perfect backdrops.  This little miss was so sweet for the camera, and I loved seeing her personality coming out while we explored this cool location.   Mom created the balloon tassels by hand, and it was simply perfection in the photos.  The outdoor cake smash didn’t disappoint, there is something really perfect about getting covered in frosting in the dirt.  We even got to end the session with cows!  I am looking forward to having more sessions here.

It was my honor to photograph my sweet niece for her first birthday this year. My sister in law went all out with the big balloon, chalkboard with milestones and stats, and cute rocking chair. We decided to go to Raceway Woods in Carpentersville at sunset for the photos, and the light was beautiful that night. Our babies grow up so fast, I’m so happy they have these photos to remember this age!
