Busy season coming to an end | family photographer

As another crazy busy season comes to an end, I find myself reflecting on how truly lucky I am to be a part of the lives of so many.  To have the joy of documenting your milestones, and capturing memories for your families is truly an honor.  I photographed 197 sessions this year, which has been my busiest year yet.  Next year, I am going to have to adjust things a bit scheduling-wise to be able to accommodate all of my current clients as this year was a bit too crazy.  Thank you again for trusting me to capture your most precious family members… I am truly grateful for your trust and confidence in my work.  Happy Holidays!


Batavia Illinois Maternity Photography | awaiting baby

This gorgeous mama to be was so much fun to work with.  Her belly was about as perfect as they come, and she was glowing!  Maternity photographs are so important to look back on long after baby is grown.  If you are pregnant, and in the Chicago area, please email info@artfulheartphotography.com to reserve your maternity photo session!  You won’t regret it!


Elgin Illinois family photographer | Beautiful extended family

What a beautiful family!  I love capturing extended family sessions!  Grandparents and their grandchildren are something that should be captured and cherished.  I absolutely love this Elgin location in the summer and fall.  It has beautiful scenery, but more importantly… the LIGHT!  Check out a few of my favorites from their family session in Elgin, Illinois!


Chicago cake smash session | so much fun!

It’s so much fun to turn ONE!  These cake smash sessions are becoming so popular!  I truly have so much fun with these babies who are smashing away and enjoying their day.  I adore watching the parents who get into it as well.  The cake was perfection, and check out his SMILE!
