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

One of the best parts of winter in the midwest is cuddling and playing with your family while staying warm inside. I was able to capture this family doing just that right after Thanksgiving. They played instruments, built block towers, hid in the closet, and just had a great time while I documented their day. I love showing clients all these moments that normally are never captured, or are found only in blurry phone images. They were so happy to have these photos, and I wish every family would hire a photographer to get great photos of them just being themselves.  Enjoy the photos, and contact me to document your own family in a relaxed in-home session!

This family met me in beautiful historic Long Grove for some family photos early this month. It was a warm day for December, with plenty of sunshine. I love how bright the day looks in the photos, it really gives me new appreciation for doing mid day photo sessions. The harsh sun can be hard to deal with, but with creative posing and the shade from buildings, it can look beautiful! I don’t usually edit in black and white, but I thought the photos in front of the red wall looked so striking in a high contrast black and white, and I love finding ways to add variety to galleries. This family was so sweet and full of laughter! We spent our time together walking around Long Grove (where the parents got married!) and finding great spots to capture. This area remains one of my favorites, enjoy the photos.

I photographed this family at a forest preserve last fall, and was thrilled to hear they wanted updated photos at their home this time around. I love in home sessions, I feel the photos mean a lot when they are taken in your own space. These boys were so sweet, and of course their outfits were amazing! I’m sure their Christmas card will look wonderful this year, and I can’t wait to work with this family again! In the cold months, in-home sessions are such a great option for families that want beautiful photos without freezing outside. The ideal scenario is to take some inside, and also some outside, as I did for this family. Your front porch, backyard, or even the park down the street can be a beautiful backdrop without sacrificing comfort – especially if there is snow! I am available for lifestyle and portrait sessions at your home all winter!

This mom gets professional photos done of her daughters every year, and I was thrilled to have gotten the job this time. Look at these girls! They were hilarious and sweet, and photographing them was a dream. Mom and dad got in for a few family shots, and the photobomb one is just epic! One of my favorite family shots to date. This location is perfect for photos, and I am absolutely loving the fall color! Enjoy the photos of this cute family, and all the funny moments thanks to their youngest.

This family booked a session with me over the summer, and I absolutely loved the images I got of them back when it was warm.  I was thrilled when they contacted me again to take photos for their holiday card.  These kids are just the cutest!  I love this location in Palatine with the evergreens and tall pines, it made for the perfect backdrop for their bright red outfits.  I have been told to expect a card in the mail, and I can’t think of a better ‘thank you!’
