Family Photographers Who Serve the Western Suburbs

GuidesResources for Families

It’s so special to be able to capture memorable moments with you and your kids. I don’t think I’m alone in having thousands of action photos of my kids, but very few with me in them. And nothing compares to the quality of professional photographs. I made the mistake of not having family photographs taken for many years and I definitely regret it! So how do you find a local family photographer? We have some great options! The photographers in this guide are incredibly talented with their camera, lighting, and editing, which makes a big difference.

All of the photographers in this guide come recommended, serve the western suburbs of Chicago, and chose to be featured. You will find a description of each family photographer, contact information, and samples of their work to help you find the perfect fit. So take a look at all of them and book now for whatever season you have in mind because their sessions fill up!

Photographers for Families in the Western Suburbs

I’m Estee of EsteeG Photography and I can’t wait to meet you. A photography session with me will have lots of laughs, tickles and games. Don’t worry, I will capture your traditional family photo while capturing those tender moments of baby snuggling into mom, the big bear hugs for dad and your little ones holding hands and even giving those cootie hugs. ;)

The diversity of the session will make the time fly by and you won’t even realize you’re having your pictures taken. Photographs are extremely important as they tell your family’s story and become your history. I love what I do and I look forward to giving you photographs that you can revisit over and over again.

Hello! I’m Summer.

So, yeah, this is me… when I say it’s time to update your family or head shots, I MEAN it! Man, did I have anxiety to be in front of the camera, but I am so glad I did it. No one wants to see me 10 years ago, I’m not a fan of meeting people and being like wait… WHAT?! My family wants to remain private, so that limits any pics we take together to use. SO I did the thing I tell everyone else to do.

And now you see who your photographer is right now. Now, who is that? I am a girl who absolutely loves what she does and her camera. The word passion doesn’t even touch it. I get to do what I love for a living, plain and simple. I have a ton of tattoos {still working on my sleeve} and do not believe that how people decide to express themselves is an indication of their souls {so no judgey/rude people allowed around here} I am a foodie who loves small local places, my music and my personality are loud. I am a loving, sarcastic goofball. I have 3 amazing kids and 2 bonus kids. I can not forget about my dog babies {2 bostons} I am outdoorsy and love to get into the mountains as much as possible, we hike and when I say hike I mean far and up, no 1 mile flatlander stuff here. I was a 90’s kid as a teen so if you know you know… Work hard, play harder. Be sure to reach out to me if you feel we are a good fit, even just pop in and say HI!

Be silly. Be fun.
Be different. Be authentic.
Be YOU, because life is too short to be anything else.
It is… Your Life. Your Story.

I am a city bird living near Chicago however I love the south! I love incorporating timeless, whimsical, a bit European, and emotional things into my modern family homes. Shooting film really gives me that feeling I want to create through my photographs as well as helps me focus on the connection between my families and not so much about all the “techy-stuff.” It gives me immense joy to welcome new families into the studio, help them create a session they will love by providing hair and makeup, clothing for the entire family, as well as printing AND hanging their art for them. I am a one stop shop for my clients and they love that!
