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 baby photography | family of 4

This beautiful family welcomed baby number two into their lives!  Big sister (only 18 months old) was thrilled to share her new baby sister with me!  We had so much fun!  I just love involving siblings in the session.  I like to make sure they feel special as well.  I always try to capture siblings in the safest way possible. Typically a family image is the easiest way to accomplish that, but sometimes I get lucky and can grab a quick sister shot as well!  She laid down for longer than I thought… but, then was on the move!


Geneva baby photographer | twins

I absolutely adore photographing twin newborn babies.  They typically just sleep away, and love being next to each other.  I loved capturing these two!  They loved snuggling into each other and were totally content the entire session.

Each baby is truly unique, and I just love how parents already know which baby is the easier of the two.


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!


Bartlett baby photographer | two is better than one

Photographing twin newborn babies is so much fun.  These two slept like a dream as long as they were next to each other!  I’m sure this mama has her hands full, but full of so much love.  Can’t wait to watch them grow and photograph them again.  If you are pregnant and expecting twins, please email info@artfulheartphotography.com to get on my calendar.  Don’t wait to capture your tiny miracles.
