Elgin family photography | sweet family

When you get to watch families grown every year, you become a friend.  This beautiful family has been coming to me over the years, and I truly adore watching them together.  They’re so fun, and kind.  The boys are so sweet and absolutely adore each other!  The stream in St. Charles, Illinois was the perfect spot to capture their connection.


South Elgin Newborn Photographer | Hello Dimples

I simply could not get enough of this sweet baby boy!  Those dimples and smiles!  Newborn babies often smile just as they are drifting off to sleep… but this sweet baby boy was smiling through his whole session.  He must have been having some amazing dreams!  Must have been my newborn sleepy magical studio in South Elgin, Illinois that he loved!


Elgin Illinois Newborn Photography | sweet baby girl

This sweet baby girl was soooo good!   She slept like a dream!  I just adore the soft pinks and beige tones from her session.  Newborn photographs are some of my favorites to capture.  Their creamy skin tones, perfect tiny little features, and newness are just dreamy!  My South Elgin, Illinois studio is the perfect set up to capture these sessions in.  It’s nice an cozy, warm, and I have everything you would need for baby!  Contact me to set up your session!


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!


Chicago family photography | new babies

People often ask me if I do family photographs when capturing newborns… the answer is YES!  I adore including the whole family in the newborn session.  They are my favorite to capture!  Siblings can be the most fun to work with, as they are willing (and sometimes unwilling) to share their new baby with me!  It’s always a joy to see them interact with the new baby, and show them off.

If you have a new baby, or are expecting a new baby, and would love to capture your new addition to the family please use the “contact me” button above to reach out to me and get on the calendar.  Newborn sessions book out quickly, so don’t wait!
