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

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!’

This city-dwelling family met me at Schiller Woods for some fun and photos on a chilly Friday night.  There were deer as far as the eye can see, just wandering around and eating grass.  I can’t believe I didn’t take any photos of them!  The family loved seeing the wildlife, since they don’t often see things like that where they live.  It was pretty magical!  We enjoyed the last bit of fall color at this location, and the vibrant oranges and yellows were the perfect backdrop for their photos.  We finished their session with some fun soccer and gorgeous images by the pond.  Enjoy!

I was so happy to photograph this family for the second year in a row!  We chose always-delightful Historic Long Grove for our location, and it was a lot of fun for the kids to explore.  The cute areas that surround the municipal lot are wonderful backdrops, including the beautiful tall pines behind the fabulous new Buffalo Creek Brewing!  I wish I could say I stopped in for a beer after the session, but that did not happen.  Next time, for sure!  I was thrilled to see the special ‘ninja fight’ that the kids had planned for the end of the session.  These kids are amazing!  Enjoy the photos of this cute family.

  • Gwen Reilly - Hi Sara! My name is Gwen. I am a mom of 2 beautiful girls :-), ages 9 and 12. Every year, it has been a tradition to take fall pictures. I had a photographer that came highly recommended to me, and unfortunately, she has cancelled our session several times 🙁

    I went on google, and poof, there you were, right in Palatine! I loved your website! I know it is late in the game, but I was wondering if you had any availability to take pictures? It can even be a mini session. My girls can handle the cold and are VERY cooperative! If you are completely booked, I understand!! Let me know!

    Thank you!!!ReplyCancel
